Inhaltsangabe

"When it comes to YA suspense, Karen M. McManus is in a league of her own. Fresh off her best-selling breakout One of Us Is Lying...the author has returned with a juicy second novel. It's even better than what came before." (EW)

The "must-read YA thriller" (Bustle) from number one New York Times best-selling author of One of Us Is Lying!

Echo Ridge is small-town America. Ellery's never been there, but she's heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age 17. And only five years ago, a homecoming queen put the town on the map when she was killed. Now, Ellery has to move there to live with a grandmother she barely knows.

The town is picture-perfect, but it's hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone has declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.

Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she's in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous - and most people aren't good at keeping them. Which is why in Echo Ridge, it's safest to keep your secrets to yourself.

Kritikerstimmen

"It’s even better than what came before: more exciting, with richer characters and a stronger final-act twist.... This is a murder-mystery, and a damn good one, the town of Echo Ridge steeped in an irresistible menace, the questions at the heart of the novel turning darker and deeper with each new revelation. That’s what should rightly make this another smash best-seller." (EW)

"Tightly knit and well-placed plot elements, along with the development of Ellery and Malcolm’s relationship, keep pages turning until the revelation of the murderer’s identity and motivations, as well as some other secrets that turn out satisfyingly well." (Bulletin)

"The mystery unfurls at a deliciously escalating pace, filled with believable red herrings and shocking twists. Readers will furiously turn pages until the satisfying end...with well-earned thrills and spooky atmosphere worth sinking into." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

Surprisingly good!

Karen McManus' first novel 'One of us is lying' is an unbearable mixture of dimensionless, cliche characters, unexciting side plot and suicide glorification nearly as bad as in 13 Reasons Why. So this one I have bought to make fun of while I'm on the train. But it was AMAZING! Great twists and turns, amazing, interesting plot, relatable, unique main characters. The evolving relationships between the characters was actually realistic and believable. Great foreshadowing. If you are looking for a not so girly (but not I'm not like other girls) alternative to maybe Pretty Little Liars you will love this. I don't often come across such a beautiful and well crafted novel and I'm an English major.
