Amazing! A riveting mystery/thriller that manages to beautifully tell the entire drug-ravaged family history of these two sisters. Liz Moore creates rich, compelling, believable characters. Their tragic tale provides a poignant glimpse into the opioid crisis. It may only be January, but Long Bright River is definitely one of the best of 2020.

"Now, looking at Kacey as she kneels at the foot of the bed, repentant, I see the possibility, very faintly, that one day she might return. Then I look at Thomas, and I am reminded, as always, of the ever-present threat of departure, of permanent loss. It hovers there, foreboding, a faint, high melody that only children can hear."
