About the book:
MURDER SHOCKS PEACEFUL NEIGHBOURHOOD
A woman in her thirties. Found naked and stabbed on the kitchen floor. Discovered by her twelve-year-old daughter after school.
As top Savannah crime reporter Harper McClain stares at the horrific scene before her, one thought screams through her mind. This murder is identical to another murder she has witnessed. Her mother’s murder…
For fifteen years, Harper has been torn apart by the knowledge that her mother’s killer is walking free. And now, it seems he’s struck again. There are no fingerprints. No footprints. No DNA. Yet still, Harper is determined to discover the truth once and for all.
But that search will come at a cost…and it could be one she isn’t ready to pay.
Set in Savannah, Georgia, we meet crime reporter Harper McClain. When a murder is committed, echoing a 15-year-old cold case, McClain takes it upon herself to try to find the perpetrator. The kicker here is that it was McClain’s mother killed 15 years ago, and the fact that the killer was never caught makes her think they are back.
Harper becomes like a dog with a bone, exhausting all of her police contacts trying to learn all she can about the current murder, while also delving into her mother’s case. Harper doesn’t realise just how dangerous this will turn out to be.
I enjoyed The Echo Killing. It is definitely a solid start to the series, but it left me with a lot of questions by the end. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though, as it has made me eager to read the next Harper McClain book.
The Echo Killing is a good thriller. Pacy and tense, it kept me reading. I loved the location, and McClain is a great character.
Recommended for sure!
