All the Pretty Girls by J. T. Ellison

The Southern Strangler is slaughtering his way through the Southeast, leaving a gruesome memento at each crime scene - the prior victim's severed hand. Ambitious TV reporter Whitney Connolly is certain the Southern Strangler is her ticket out of Nashville; she's got a scoop that could break the case. She has no idea how close to this story she really is - or what it will cost her.


'A terrific lead character, terrific suspense, terrific twists...a completely convincing debut.' Lee Child

'A taut, striking debut. Mystery fiction has a new name to watch.' John Connolly

'An impressive and arresting thriller.' Publishers Weekly
