While I don‘t think the writing is a good as the last book I reviewed, I also devoured this one in print and on audio. Candace Swain disappeared after her sorority‘s party for a week and then was found dead. Three years later, Lucas is hosting a podcast, his capstone project, to find out where Candace was for that week. He is joined in his search by a former U.S. Marshall. I knew who the killer was fairly quickly and some of the story was ⬇️

Bookzombie unbelievable. Even so, I was invested. I swear the back of the book said this was a standalone, but Goodreads indicates it to be the first in a series. 1mo

A girl vanishes for a week before her body turns up dead. Three years later Lucas puts together a podcast to try to find the missing pieces to solve the murder. As you can imagine, there is always more to the story...

This is my first Allison Brennan book but definitely not my last! I binged the book in 2 days whenever I had spare time. I actually downloaded her first novel on my kobo to make my way through all her books.

Another great thriller. Lucas, a college student, decides to base his capstone project on a podcast he starts, which he creates of a three year old disappearance and murder of a sorority girl at his college. What happened to her while she was missing a week before she was murdered? Who murdered her? Can he help solve this cold case with the help of a former US Marshall who also takes an interest in the case and ends up needing to protect Lucas?

She was at the party, and now she is dead.

Who saw Candace when she left the party after an argument three years ago ?

THE SORORITY MURDER is engaging, has a great story line, and complicated, interesting characters. 5/5
