Guilty or innocent?
The primary suspect in a murder case is her father ...

FBI Agent Nell Flynn has come home for the first time in a decade following her father's death. But almost immediately she is drawn into one of his last murder investigations.

Two women have been found dead, the second body showing up shortly after Nell's arrival. And Nell quickly realizes the evidence points to one clear suspect - her own father.

His colleagues and friends are covering for him, and Nell has no idea who she can trust or what may have been hidden from her.

Desperate for answers, she is drawn deeper into the case. But is she prepared for what she might find?

Praise for this book

"Girls Like Us is something special: A beautiful, deeply textured novel and a poignant, surprising mystery. I loved it, every chapter and every word. I’m going to be thinking about it as a reader, a father, and a storyteller for a long, long time." - Chris Bohjalian

"Girls Like Us is the best of psychological suspense: nuanced, expertly fast-paced, and full of surprises you truly don't see coming. Cristina Alger is my kind of writer—as graceful on the page as she is gritty." - Harlan Coben

"Cristina Alger, who is known for creating pulse-pounding plots and gutsy female protagonists, has done it again. Gritty, twisty, and unputdownable, GIRLS LIKE US is sure to be the thriller to read this season." - Greer Hendricks

"A smashing read. Instantly gripping and compulsively readable, with a heroine as vulnerable as she is tenacious." - Riley Sager
