Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Justice for Sara and The First Wife Erica Spindler comes The Other Girl, a chilling new thriller about a ritualistic murder of a college professor that sends a small town cop back into the trauma she thought she'd put behind her.

"Explosive." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A fantastic thriller from one of the best in the genre!" —RT Reviews

A horrific crime. One witness—a fifteen year old girl from the wrong side of the tracks, one known for lying and her own brushes with the law.Is it any surprise no one believed her?

Officer Miranda Rader of the Harmony, Louisiana PD is known for her honesty, integrity, and steady hand in a crisis—but that wasn't always so. Miranda comes from the town of Jasper, a place about the size of a good spit on a hot day, and her side of the tracks was the wrong one. She's worked hard to earn the respect of her coworkers and the community.

When Miranda and her partner are called to investigate the murder of one of the town's most beloved college professors, they're unprepared for the brutality of the scene. This murder is unlike any they've ever investigated, and just when Miranda thinks she's seen the worst of it, she finds a piece of evidence that chills her to the core: a faded newspaper clipping about that terrible night fifteen years ago. The night she'd buried, along with her past and the girl she'd been back then. Until now that grave had stayed sealed...except for those times, in the deepest part of the night, when the nightmares came: of a crime no one believed happened and the screams of the girl they believed didn't exist.

Then another man turns up dead, this one a retired cop. Not just any cop—the one who took her statement that night. Two murders, two very different men, two killings that on the surface had nothing in common—except Miranda.

        Starred review from June 26, 2017
        Miranda Rader, the heroine of this superlative romantic thriller from Spindler (The First Wife), has never forgotten the hot July night in 2002 when she was almost raped by a friend of her older brother’s who gave her a ride in his truck. Now a police officer in rural Harmony, La., Miranda is called to a grim crime scene. English professor Richard Stark, the local university president’s son, has been found naked in bed, his hands and feet tied to the bed rails, with multiple stab wounds in his chest. When Miranda begins interviewing possible suspects, she discovers that there was a darker side to the handsome professor, who may have been a sexual predator. While searching for Richard’s killer, Miranda is also intent on proving that he abused women. The stakes rise when the cop who interviewed Miranda 14 years earlier about the attempted assault on her is murdered. Multidimensional characters with a plethora of hidden agendas help drive the riveting plot to its explosive conclusion. Agent: Scott Miller, Trident Media Group.
