What happens when your father is the prime suspect in a murder case?

‘Full of surprises you truly don’t see coming’ HARLAN COBEN
‘Instantly gripping and compulsively readable’ RILEY SAGER


FBI Agent Nell Flynn is about to work the most personal case of her life.

Back home for the first time in a decade, Nell is getting ready to close the family estate after her father’s death.

But there’s one piece of unfinished business. Her father, a homicide detective, was investigating the murders of two young women. Now his partner has asked for Nell’s help.

Nell soon realises that her father should be the prime suspect, and that his friends on the force are covering for him.

With no idea who she can trust, Nell also starts to question events that took place when she was a child. Could it be that the answers she so desperately needs are buried deep within her own memory?

Tautly wound police-procedural-thriller aside, Alger's novel is a smart, searing indictment of just one of the many contemporary examples of the haves vs. the have-nots.
Seattle Review of Books
A smashing read. Instantly gripping and compulsively readable, with a heroine as vulnerable as she is tenacious
Riley Sager, author of The Final Girls
[An] excellent crime novel. . . [Alger] captures the social dynamics of Suffolk's eastern extremes perfectly . . . Highly recommended
Cristina Alger, who is known for creating pulse-pounding plots and gutsy female protagonists, has done it again. Gritty, twisty, and unputdownable, GIRLS LIKE US is sure to be the thriller to read this season.
Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, authors of The Wife Between Us
GIRLS LIKE US is something special: A beautiful, deeply textured novel and a poignant, surprising mystery. I loved it, every chapter and every word. I'm going to be thinking about it as a reader, a father, and a storyteller for a long, long time.
Chris Bohjalian, author of The Flight Attendant
GIRLS LIKE US is the best of psychological suspense: nuanced, expertly fast-paced, and full of surprises you truly don't see coming. Cristina Alger is my kind of writer - as graceful on the page as she is gritty
