Look for Her
by Emily Winslow
on Tour February 12 – March 16, 2018
Lilling might seem like an idyllic English village, but it’s home to a dark history. In 1976, a teenage girl named Annalise Wood disappeared, and though her body was later discovered, the culprit was never found. Decades later, Annalise maintains a perverse kind of celebrity, and is still the focus of grief, speculation, and for one young woman, a disturbing, escalating jealousy.
When DNA linked to the Annalise murder unexpectedly surfaces, cold case detective Morris Keene and his former partner, Chloe Frohmann, hope to finally bring closure to this traumatized community. But the new evidence instead undoes the case’s only certainty: the buried body that had long ago been confidently identified as Annalise may be someone else entirely, and instead of answers, the investigators face only new puzzles.
Whose body was unearthed all those years ago, and what happened to the real Annalise? Is someone interfering with the investigation? And is there a link to a present-day drowning with eerie connections? With piercing insight and shocking twists, Emily Winslow explores the dark side of sensationalized crime in this haunting psychological thriller.
“An intriguing, suspenseful, and briskly paced story with complex characters, evocative descriptions of England’s Cambridgeshire, plenty of clever misdirection, and a satisfying ending.”
“Using multiple narrators, as she did in The Start of Everything (2013), Winslow spins the plot to a satisfying and humane conclusion, with Keene and Frohmann again proving to be a winning pair.”
“Winslow’s kaleidoscopic narrative technique, employing first-person accounts from multiple characters, makes for engaging reading.”
“Look For Her is a nuanced, thought-provoking portrait of a crime and its aftermath. Beautifully written with an expertly twisty, surprising story, this is a must-read!”
—Chevy Stevens, New York Times bestselling author of Never Let You Go
“Surprising and satisfying, you won’t be able to stop turning the pages of Look For Her.”
—Karen Dionne, author of The Marsh King’s Daughter

Review by Chill and read:
Lilling is a small town just outside Cambridge. In 1976, the town became the center of attention due to a teenage girl that went missing. Some years later they found her body in a shallow grave. But they never found who did it. The poor girl, Annalise, has become a kind of a legend in that small town and those around. Books have been written with her story and people still remember her after decades. Some even think to have a close connection to her.
When a DNA match to Annalise murder suddenly surfaces, then Cold Case investigator Morris Keene takes the lead to a famous case that justifies him to be part of the action. His investigation will be intertwined with a that of a new case, as their paths cross at many levels.
The story is narrated by multiple perspectives and this only gives many angles to the reader to view and understand the story. There are even transcriptions from therapy two of the characters had with a third character, which is a psychologist. We come to see also the narratives of the two main characters, Morris and Chloe, who apparently had some issue to solve from a previous book. I didn’t read any of the previous in the series, however, I didn’t really need that in order to understand the relationship between the two investigators, how much they respect each other and how good they are on what they do.
This one was a fast pace story, with a number of twists and turns to spice it up. The author uses lies and secrets in order to create a very good mystery that will keep the reader going until it’s finished!
