Description

Hailed as an astoundingly good novel by Gillian Flynn, author of the #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Gone Girl," and winner of the 2014 Kentucky Literary Award, "The Next Time You See Me" is a gripping tale of mystery, desperation, and redemption.
When a small Southern town s most fiery single woman is found dead in the woods, it s not just her secrets that threaten to surface. There s Ronnie s sister, Susanna, a dutiful but dissatisfied schoolteacher, mother, and wife; Tony, a failed baseball star turned detective; Emily, a socially awkward thirteen-year-old with a dark secret; and Wyatt, a factory worker tormented by a past he can t change and by a love he doesn t think he deserves.
Connected in ways they cannot begin to imagine, their stories converge in a violent climax that reveals not just the mystery of what happened to Ronnie, but all of their secret selves. Praised as immensely satisfying and skillful by Kate Atkinson, author of "New York Times" bestseller "Life After Life," "The Next Time You See Me" is a debut novel not to be missed."

Review quote

""The Next Time You See Me" will no doubt be compared to Russell Banks' "The Sweet Hereafter". . . . Yet, because of the depth of characterization and literary skill, Holly Goddard Jones' novel would better be compared to Dennis Lehane's "Mystic River", which is probably one of the best literary mysteries of the past few decades. . . . Those who prefer mature, well-written and intelligent literary fiction with just a dash of mystery would be advised to read "The Next Time You See Me"."
