She’s the only one who survived…and the only one who can help find the killer.
Another spring, another dead girl pulled from a lake in the Appalachian foothills: the latest victim in a series of murders with few leads. But Detective Geena Brassard and her partner, Parker Reed, finally land a break when they receive a tip about a previously unknown survivor of the so-called Spring Strangler.
The survivor’s reluctant to help with the case for reasons that aren’t all clear. Even so, Geena uncovers a connective thread between the victims, and recently discovered DNA brings her closer to the killer’s identity. But Geena knows the survivor has the most to offer the investigation—if also the most to lose.
Geena is torn between securing the surviving victim’s help and protecting her from further danger. One thing is certain: Geena and Parker must find answers before the killer claims another life—or returns to finish off the one who got away.
“Distinctive characters enhance the fast-moving, twist-filled plot, and the killer’s identity comes as a nice surprise…Katchur is on a roll.” ~Publisher’s Weekly
“The dilemmas of two good women struggling in very different ways to do the right thing creates suffocating suspense.” ~Kirkus Reviews
“Spring Girls marks another impressive step forward for Karen Katchur, whose trajectory has been steadily on the rise. The mystery itself is gripping, but it’s this in combination with vital characters and a potent sense of place that makes the book an overall standout. You don’t have to have read the series’ previous entries to enjoy this one—but I can promise you one thing: by the end, you’ll wish you had!” ~Criminal Element
