    One of Barack Obama's favorite books of the year

    Named a Best Book of 2020 By NPR, Parade, Real Simple, and BuzzFeed

    An instant New York Times best seller

    A Good Morning America Book Club Pick

    "[Moore’s] careful balance of the hard-bitten with the heartfelt is what elevates Long Bright River from entertaining page-turner to a book that makes you want to call someone you love." (The New York Times Book Review)

    "This is police procedural and a thriller par excellence, one in which the city of Philadelphia itself is a character (think Boston and Mystic River). But it’s also a literary tale narrated by a strong woman with a richly drawn personal life - powerful and genre-defying." (People)

    "A thoughtful, powerful novel by a writer who displays enormous compassion for her characters. Long Bright River is an outstanding crime novel.... I absolutely loved it." (Paula Hawkins, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Girl on the Train)

    Two sisters travel the same streets, though their lives couldn't be more different. Then one of them goes missing.

    In a Philadelphia neighborhood rocked by the opioid crisis, two once-inseparable sisters find themselves at odds. One, Kacey, lives on the streets in the vise of addiction. The other, Mickey, walks those same blocks on her police beat. They don't speak anymore, but Mickey never stops worrying about her sibling.

    Then Kacey disappears, suddenly, at the same time that a mysterious string of murders begins in Mickey's district, and Mickey becomes dangerously obsessed with finding the culprit - and her sister - before it's too late.

    Alternating its present-day mystery with the story of the sisters' childhood and adolescence, Long Bright River is at once heart-pounding and heart-wrenching: A gripping suspense novel that is also a moving story of sisters, addiction, and the formidable ties that persist between place, family, and fate.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "An instant sensation and the January pick for Good Morning America’s book club." (Entertainment Weekly)

    "Navigates assuredly between the plot twists and big reveals.... Long Bright River is equal parts literary and thrilling." (O: The Oprah Magazine)

    "Tough, tense and twisty - but tender, human and deeply affecting, too... I don't have a sister, but when I finished the book I called my brother, just to hear his voice." (Lee Child)

    Boring, with worst narrator.

    This narrator (A. Ryan) was just Not for me. Monotone, dragging reading, with constantly wandering voice pitch within a single sentence. Up and down. I got just tired of it. Simply killed the story for me. Couldn't pass the 23d chapter. Sorry.
