All Good People Here by Ashley Flowers
A MYSTERIOUS COLD CASE…
Twenty-five years ago, January Jacob’s parents awoke to find their daughter’s bed empty, a horrifying message spray-painted onto their wall. Hours later, January’s body was found discarded in a ditch. Her murder was never solved. But the town remembers.
A DANGEROUS OBSESSION…
Journalist Margot Davies is tired of reporting meaningless stories. One night, she stumbles upon a clue in the most infamous crime in her hometown’s history: the unsolved murder of six-year-old January.
A TOWN FULL OF SECRETS…
As Margot digs deeper, she begins to suspect that there is something truly sinister lurking in the small community: a secret that endangers the lives of everyone involved…including Margot.
The story alternates between past and present as we learn about the events that happened twenty five years ago when January went missing, to present day which follows Margot as she tries to uncover the truth of what happened that night.
The author, Ashley Flowers, actually runs a true crime podcast and whilst the book isn’t written as a podcast, it certainly uses that investigative approach when it comes to the character of Margot who is determined to get to the bottom of this unsolved crime.
Halfway through the book it kind of felt like the truth had been uncovered but don’t let that fool you as it did me. It was your classic decoy when it comes to crime thrillers and let me just say there were plenty of twists and turns near the end. I especially loved the final two chapters which I was not expecting and was one that ultimately let you as the reader decide what happened.
If you love your investigative crime thrillers with plenty of twists then I recommend giving this a read.
