I love Savannah, but Christi Daugherty's The Echo Killing is not the Savannah of the cobblestone streets, lovely architecture, and many parks. Daughtery's Harper McClain is a crime reporter and her job takes her to places other than the tourist mecca of Old Savannah.
Harper's mother was murdered when she was twelve, and when another murder takes place that echos the murder of her mother in surprising detail, Harper is compelled to investigate further. Despite some discouragement from her mentor who doesn't believe the killer is the same one that murdered her mother, Harper continues digging.
And while the murder itself is eerily similar to that of her mother, the victim is an entirely different breed. Is the killer the same one becoming active again after fifteen years...or is it a copy cat?
Read in December; blog review scheduled for 3/5/18.
