Book review: Look For Her – Emily Winslow

Another day, another review. Something a bit more psychological this time! 

A body found in the woods dressed in the clothing of a missing girl from forty years ago, a young woman obsessed by the case, a recent drowning. Is there a connection and if so, can detectives Keene and Frohmann find it before anyone else gets hurt? 

I haven’t read anything by Winslow before, except her story in the Deadlier anthology (which I also recommend) but I really enjoyed this, finishing it in one sitting. 

I liked the changes in perspective between the different characters, the fact that some of them had their own agendas and you couldn’t always clearly see what they were, and how it was all carefully drawn together at the end. 

Cold cases are quite fascinating, especially as technology as moved on so much and what we can tell now about a crime is so more in depth than in the past, making it both easier and harder to solve them.

This book is available now from all the usual places.
