The Echo Killing by Christi Daugherty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin's press for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this one. Harper McClain was a great character, damaged enough to be "interesting" but really strong, smart as a whip, and highly entertaining to watch do her thing. The secondary characters were pretty good too, but Harper was definitely a powerful main character.
The mystery itself was a good one. I will admit, I solved the murder (or at least guessed the identity of the murderer) near the beginning, but not all the details. As the story came together, I started to sway in my opinion, so good job by Daugherty on sending enough mixed signals to make the mystery work harder. I don't think everyone will get the killer's identity, but it was just a gut feeling I had. Honestly, being proven right just made me enjoy the book more, especially because of the author's path on getting to the reveal.
Glad this one is going to have a sequel. It left enough open for another book at minimum, and I want to know more... and spend more time with Harper.
