You Know Her
Author: Meagan Jennett
“This book will be the talk of the genre. If you read one thriller this year, read this one.” —Chelsea Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Heartsick
Killing Eve meets Sharp Objects in this lush,savage Southern gothic thriller about twowomen: a fledgling murderer and the cophell-bent on catching her.
Two hours before he vanished, Mark Dixon stole a glass of wine. That’s what bartender Sophie Braam tells the cops when they question her about the customer whose mutilated body has just been found. What she doesn’t tell them is that she’s the one who killed him.
Officer Nora Martin is new to the Bellair Police Department and is trying very hard to learn the ropes from Detective Murphy while ignoring all her male colleagues griping about a diversity hire. When she meets Sophie, they build an uneasy camaraderie over shared frustrations.
As winter slides into spring and bodies start piling up, Nora begins to suspect that something’s not quite right with the unnerving, enigmatic bartender. But will she be able to convince Murph, or will he keep laughing off the idea that the serial killer haunting their little town is a woman?
A crackling cat-and-mouse thriller set against the verdant backdrop of small-town Virginia, Meagan Jennett’s You Know Her probes the boundaries of female friendship and the deadly consequences of frustration fermenting into rage.
