- Edition language: English
- Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
- Publication date: August 4th 2020
- Pages: 352
- My rating: ♥♥♥♥♥
After the first season of her true crime podcast became an overnight sensation and set an innocent man free, Rachel Krall is now a household name―and the last hope for thousands of people seeking justice. But she’s used to being recognized for her voice, not her face. Which makes it all the more unsettling when she finds a note on her car windshield, addressed to her, begging for help.
The small town of Neapolis is being torn apart by a devastating rape trial. The town’s golden boy, a swimmer destined for Olympic greatness, has been accused of raping a high school student, the beloved granddaughter of the police chief. Under pressure to make Season Three a success, Rachel throws herself into interviewing and investigating―but the mysterious letters keep showing up in unexpected places. Someone is following her, and she won’t stop until Rachel finds out what happened to her sister twenty-five years ago. Officially, Jenny Stills tragically drowned, but the letters insists she was murdered―and when Rachel starts asking questions, nobody seems to want to answer. The past and present start to collide as Rachel uncovers startling connections between the two cases that will change the course of the trial and the lives of everyone involved.
Guys! I loved this book! IT was a long time, that I haven’t read such a good ARC. What a treat it was to go through it.
I was rooting for the girl that was raped so much, that I just couldn’t put this book down. I had to know, how the trial will end and it didn’t disappoint. All this book was so realistic, that all the time that I read it, it felt like I was in the court room in the jury box. When I read chapters of the podcast, it felt like you actually listen for a real podcast. I think it could be a great film.. Netflix! Where are you, when you are most needed?
In all honesty, this book is a prime example, that you don’t need very explicit, gruesome and vivid descriptions of the crime scene or the crime, that was made, for the book to be interesting and gripping.
I liked the main character Rachel a lot, even though sometimes she made some questionable things, it made her even more relatable and humanlike. I hope, that the author decides to make a book series about her and her podcast. Because the idea of using a podcast was very unique and made this book even more apieling.
So, I guess you can already tell, that I definitely recommend this book, please give this one a chance and you won’t be dissapointed.
