DEAR DAUGHTER BY ELIZABETH LITTLE

As soon as they processed my release Noah and I hit the ground running. A change of clothes. A wig. An  inconspicuous sedan. We double backed once, twice, then drove south when we were really headed east. In San Francisco we had a girl who looked like me board a plane to Hawaii. Oh, I thought I was so clever. But you probably know that ‘m not.

Ten years ago, in a trail that transfixed America, Janie was convicted of murdering her mother. Now she’s been released on a technicality she’s determined to unravel the mystery of her mother’s last words, words that send her to a tiny town in the very back beyond. But with the whole of America’s media on her tail, convinced she’s literally got away with murder, she has to do everything she can to throw her pursuers off the scent. She knows she really didn’t like her mother. Could she have killed her?

JANIE JENKINS OWES HER MOTHER EVERYTHING. HER LOOKS. HER MONEY. HER MURDER CONVICTION

A really gusty, clever, energetic read, often unexpected, always entertaining. I loved Janie Jenkins sassy voice and Elizabeth little’s too. In the world of crime novels, Dear Daughter is a breath of fresh air. Needle-sharp writing that brings characters and atmosphere leaping off the page, and a vivid, original plot full of satisfying twists.
