A Riveting Race to Find a Seasonal Serial Killer
Another spring, and another dead girl is pulled from a lake in the Appalachian foothills. She is the latest victim in a series of murders with very 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 is fearful and very reluctant to help with the case. Geena uncovers a small connection between the victims, and some recently discovered DNA that brings her closer to the killer’s identity. But Geena knows the survivor has the most to offer the investigation, but also the most to lose...
SPRING GIRLS is a riveting race to find a serial killer who only kills in the Spring. Take a deep breath before you start reading, because this one will leave you breathless. I loved Geena Brassard’s character and appreciated her unusual memory as well as her perseverance.
Author KAREN KATCHUR’s writing puts you in the midst of the story. You will feel Geena’s frustration from the lack of leads as well as the immense fear of the previous victim. It’s an entertaining and chilling build to a satisfying conclusion.
Katchur’s previous novels include River Bodies (2018) The Sisters of Blue Mountain (2017) and The Secrets of Lake Road (2015). Geena’s partner in Spring Girls, Parker Reed, is also a character in the River Bodies novel. Thanks to Netgalley and Thomas and Mercer for an advance reading copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
