Pip is not a detective anymore.
With the help of Ravi Singh, she released a true-crime podcast about the murder case they solved together last year. The podcast has gone viral, yet Pip insists her investigating days are behind her.
But she will have to break that promise when someone she knows goes missing. Jamie Reynolds has disappeared, on the very same night the town hosted a memorial for the sixth-year anniversary of the deaths of Andie Bell and Sal Singh.
The police won't do anything about it. And if they won't look for Jamie then Pip will, uncovering more of her town's dark secrets along the way... and this time everyone is listening. But will she find him before it's too late?
These audiobooks are FANTASTIC! One of my fave narrations out there. Not to mention this story was insanely engrossing and kept me on the edge of my seat! It’s one of those that you think about when you’re not reading (listening) and can’t wait to get back to. I usually only listen at work, and I found myself making excuses to listen at home, too! So good!
It was very interesting to see this story unravel as Pip got little bits and pieces of the events leading up to Jamie’s disappearance. And I was SO invested! Things just got more and more interesting and there were so many little twists in there! You think you know which direction the book is going, then it switches things up on you. It’s hard to talk about anything without spoilers!View Spoiler »I wasn’t expecting the Child Brunswick twist at all! And damn, that ending was rough. Even though Stanley was involved in some bad stuff as a child, it’s arguable that he was young and easily manipulated into it by his father…and therefore is innocent. I could see both sides, but ultimately I was cheering for his absolution, so it was quite sad when he was shot to death. It’ll be interesting to see how Pip recovers from this in the next book. Also, I couldn’t help but feel like his death was kind of her fault. She dug, and pushed, and it resulted in his identity being outed and ultimately, in his death. Pip was just doing what she thought was right, but she still assisted in Charlie finding Stanley and taking his life. « Hide Spoiler
Side note: I really loved the catharsis between Nat and Pip!
