Amazingly both gripping and graphic, Long Bright River was one book I could not put down. Initially I was drawn into it because it was situated in Kensington, where my mother's family came from, Mom was born and her mother died tragically. Author Liz Moore is truly talented and gifted and I will read all her books.
It's about two sisters Mickey and Kacey and their childhood, adolescence and the differences between them in adulthood. Mickel( Michaela) is a police officer and Kacey is an addict who works the streets.
A string of murders in Mickey's district of addicts and prostitutes impels her to throw caution to the winds and try to find her sister.
It is described as being "an intense family thriller" and looks at family systems in an in depth way.
Recommended as top book of the year by many top book reviewers and this reader!
