Description

An instant New York Times best seller

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Banker's Wife, worlds collide when an FBI agent investigates a string of grisly murders on Long Island that raises the impossible question: What happens when the primary suspect is your father?

FBI Agent Nell Flynn hasn't been home in 10 years. Nell and her father, Homicide Detective Martin Flynn, have never had much of a relationship. And Suffolk County will always be awash in memories of her mother, Marisol, who was murdered when Nell was just seven. 

When Martin Flynn dies in a motorcycle accident, Nell returns to the house she grew up in so that she can spread her father's ashes and close his estate. At the behest of her father's partner, Detective Lee Davis, Nell becomes involved in an investigation into the murders of two young women in Suffolk County. The further Nell digs, the more likely it seems to her that her father should be the prime suspect - and that his friends on the police force are covering his tracks. Plagued by doubts about her mother's murder - and her own role in exonerating her father in that case - Nell can't help but ask questions about who killed Ria Ruiz and Adriana Marques and why. But she may not like the answers she finds - not just about those she loves, but about herself.

Commentaires

"[Nell] has a vulnerable, empathetic core that will pull readers in, and Alger has a feel for small-town dynamics.... The tension becomes nearly unbearable as Nell realizes she truly can't trust anyone. Readers can expect a few genuine surprises, and the light Alger shines on society's most vulnerable members is an important one. Melancholy and addictive." (Kirkus Reviews)

"[An] excellent crime novel...[Alger] captures the social dynamics of Suffolk's eastern extremes perfectly. The first-person narrative is appropriately terse - Nell delivers a thorough report - but it occasionally surprises with a gripping depth....Highly recommended." (Booklist, starred review)

Girls Like Us

Lots of twists and turns. This book was recommended by Dana Perino on The Five.. I'm glad I bought it. I will now look for other books by this author.

Exciting and Poignant and Wonderful

Perhaps because the storyline hooked me and never let go, perhaps because of the excellent narration, perhaps because of the mystery and surprises and sadness, perhaps because of all these things, Girls Like Us is my new absolute favorite novel. I can't recommend it highly enough, and I can't wait to listen to it again.

what was worse ...

The narrator was horrible! And the story line wasn't much better, I mean seriously by chapter 2 the main character thought her dad was a serial killer??

the story moved right along.

pretty solid character development . the reader did not read with emotion, so it spoiled the story for me.

Narrator is terrible

The narrator doesn’t say any of the first words of the sentences so the story is very hard to follow especially when this is all you can pay attention to. I have the book and only use audible when I’m driving and it’s very clear that the voice reading the book is not saying the first words of each sentence. Either that or it’s edited to clip the first word. Either way it’s very distracting and completely ruins the audible experience.

This was... okay

I love thriller type books, filled with twists and turns. This has a few, but was more predictable than I’d hoped for. It was a quick read, and I would pass along to someone looking for just that!

Good book. Not great narrator.

I enjoyed the story but Kyla Garcia reads in sentences, not in emotion or feeling.

Enjoyed!

Enjoyed the story, well written. Found myself wanting to get back in the car so I could listen where I left off! A realistic topic! Performance was good, a little awkward when portraying the male characters some as there were several.
