The very worst crimes are those we commit against the ones we love

Motherhood hasn't come at all easy for Molly Anderson. But she's finally enjoying life as mother to five-year-old Ella and as Arts reporter for the small but respectable Ridgedale Reader. That is, until a body is found in the woods adjacent to Ridgedale University's ivy-covered campus. This is a discovery that threatens to unearth secrets long buried by the town's most powerful residents, and brings Molly to two women who are far more deeply connected than they have ever realised.

Where They Found Heris a riveting domestic thriller which offers a searing portrait of motherhood, marriage, class distinctions and the damage wrought by betrayal.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Motherhood hasn’t been easy for Molly Anderson, and the years since the loss of her second child have been a particular struggle. But six months after moving from New York City to sophisticated Ridgedale, New Jersey, she’s finally enjoying life again, as mother of a five-year-old daughter and fledgling arts reporter for the local paper.   
But this tenuous stability is threatened when the body of a newborn is found in the woods behind prestigious Ridgedale University and Molly is assigned the story. Over the objections of her increasingly concerned husband, Molly dives into reporting, determined to prove herself by uncovering the truth. What she finds is a decades-old trail of dark secrets that winds through every corner of the town.
Told from the perspectives of Molly; Barbara, wife of Ridgedale’s police chief, whose faltering son is unraveling her picture-perfect life; and a sixteen-year-old high school dropout, Sandy, who is dealing with her wayward mother, Where They Found Her reveals that the tragic truth about what happened to the baby lies at the unexpected intersection of these three very different women’s lives. It is a taut and profoundly moving novel about mothers and daughters—the fierce bonds that unite them and the deceit that can drive them apart. But most of all it’s about the heartbreakingly high price of history. The past can be artfully denied, but never truly buried.


“McCreight doesn’t just give us an intense, interwoven, multigenerational, multi-household mystery (as if that isnt enough). She creates a world that pulls us in completely and genuinely, with characters that can enrage, amuse, and fill us with empathy. It’s a thrilling, lovely novel.”
“A roller-coaster of a novel…. How lucky for us readers—McCreight has once again proven herself to be an insightful writer capable of taking us on a hell of a ride.”
“I recently picked up McCreight’s 2013 debut, and I could not put it down…. It’s no surprise that McCreight’s latest novel, Where They Found Her…is at the top of my to-read list.”
“Suspenseful…. McCreight is quickly rising into a league with the best purveyors of the stuff, from Jodi Picoult to Harlan Coben.”

“The way McCreight weaves the tale through three different perspectives will both haunt and shock you.”

“McCreight has done an excellent job of weaving a haunting story of expectation and loss.”
“Even seasoned mystery readers won’t see the twists coming in this fast-paced read filled with unreliable narrators.”

“Genuinely suspenseful and disturbing; McCreight delivers a provocative, timely novel that reminds us that sometimes the things that shine the brightest have the dirtiest underbellies.”
“Coiled as tightly as a spring, Where They Found Her begins with a small town’s tragedy and doesn’t relent until every secret, and character, is exposed. Kimberly McCreight has written another satisfying, dark page-turner that pounces off the page.”
Where They Found Her is a fast-paced, intensely moving story filled with complex characters who drag you unresisting into their dark and tangled lives. It kept me guessing until the very last chapter.”
Where They Found Her is the electrifying story about the power of secrets spilling from one generation to the next, growing larger and more terrifying until they swamp everyone in their path and sweep to a shocking, unforgettable end.”
“McCreight’s much-anticipated second novel is a gripping and tender examination of misplaced trust.”
“Dark, twisted, and taut, McCreight’s story is like walking through a field of land mines.”
“Using multiple female perspectives author Kimberly McCreight weaves a page-turning psychological thriller as complex as her first novel Reconstructing Amelia. . . . Many twists will keep readers captivated to the end.”
“Author Kimberly McCreight is well known for her 2013 best-selling debut, Reconstructing Amelia. With Where They Found Her, she has delivered another eerie, harrowing read.… A deeply satisfying spellbinder that unfolds deliciously to the very last chapter.”
“Even readers familiar with the psychological suspense subgenre may find themselves pleasantly shocked by all the plot’s many twists and turns.”
“Told from the perspective of three Ridgedale, New Jersey women who must come to grips with a shocking discovery. . . McCreight skillfully links these characters together, not only with the tragedy, but also with their personal lives, creating an enjoyable read.”
“Like Gone Girl, Reconstructing Amelia seamlessly marries a crime story with a relationship drama. And like Gone Girl, it should be hailed as one of the best books of the year…A”
“Just finished a fantastic novel–Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight. So. Well. Done. If you liked Gone Girl, you’ll love this too.”
“Did Amelia Baron really get caught cheating and then commit suicide—or is the truth more sinister? A nail-biter for Gone Girl fans.”
“Clever and scary . . . McCreight has her finger on the private school zeitgeist. . .and this disturbing tale will make older readers fondly recall the days when kids got in trouble for passing (print) notes in class.”
