First Chapter/First Paragraph – The Night Swim by Megan Goldin

Today I am linking up with Socrates’ Book Reviews who hosts a meme every Tuesday to share the First Chapter/First Paragraph or two of the book you are currently reading.

The Night Swim by Megan Goldin

Chapter One: Hannah

It was Jenny’s death that killed my mother. Killed her as good as if she’d been shot in the chest with a twelve-gauge shotgun. The doctor said it was the cancer. But I saw the will to live drain out of her the moment the policeman knocked on our screen door.

“It’s Jenny, isn’t it?” Mom rasped, clutching the lapel of her faded dressing gown.

Goodreads Synopsis

After the first season of her true crime podcast became an overnight sensation and set an innocent man free, Rachel Krall is now a household name―and the last hope for thousands of people seeking justice. But she’s used to being recognized for her voice, not her face. Which makes it all the more unsettling when she finds a note on her car windshield, addressed to her, begging for help.

The small town of Neapolis is being torn apart by a devastating rape trial. The town’s golden boy, a swimmer destined for Olympic greatness, has been accused of raping a high school student, the beloved granddaughter of the police chief. Under pressure to make Season Three a success, Rachel throws herself into interviewing and investigating―but the mysterious letters keep showing up in unexpected places. Someone is following her, and she won’t stop until Rachel finds out what happened to her sister twenty-five years ago. Officially, Jenny Stills tragically drowned, but the letters insists she was murdered―and when Rachel starts asking questions, nobody seems to want to answer. The past and present start to collide as Rachel uncovers startling connections between the two cases that will change the course of the trial and the lives of everyone involved.

      1. I finished it today. I couldn’t guess who did all that to Jenny. It was horrible to read both rape cases. It was medium paced and I just wanted to turn pages faster to find out who was culprit in Jenny’s case. It’s 5 star from me. I wish author can make it in series. It’s so good to solve cases with podcast chapters.
