Savage Ridge

A novel by


Small town justice comes with a price.

'A richly drawn, haunting and unforgettable mystery' Chris Whitaker

'An unusually intelligent, exceptionally involving thriller' A. J. Finn

'A superb crime novel … wonderfully atmospheric and engrossing' Will Dean

Ten years ago, in the pine-shaded town of Savage Ridge, Nick, Emmy, and Pete murder their high school classmate, Sammy Saint John.

His body is never found, and no arrests are made. The three friends make a pact to leave Savage Ridge and never return…

Now, each is drawn home, seemingly by chance or fate. But it’s neither: Private Investigator Sloane Yo has brought them back to finally answer for their crime.

The noose begins to tighten. But with each stone turned over in pursuit of justice, the long-buried secrets of Savage Ridge, and Sloane’s employers – the ruthless Saint John family – start to come to light.

What aren’t they telling Sloane? Is Sammy Saint John the only victim? And when the truth is finally revealed, whose side will she choose?

For fans of Chris Whitaker’s We Begin at the End, Savage Ridge is a shattering, propulsive why-dunnit crime thriller set deep in the pines of the American Pacific Northwest.

Praise for Savage Ridge

'Gloriously bringing to life small town revenge and simmering resentments, Savage Ridge is a one-sitting read, one that will make even the most moral of readers question exactly what they would do. I loved it' Lisa Hall

‘A stunning whydunit that inverts readerly expectations, Savage Ridge is both a gripping mystery and a wrenching story about the corrosive nature of guilt, of the price we pay for what we do and what we leave undone. Morgan Greene is a suspense author to watch’ Jeff Abbott

‘Full of tension and suspense, I couldn’t put this down. The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. Brilliant!’ Simon McCleave

‘Dark, gut-punching and satisfying all at once. Expert handling of characters and pace, and a glorious evisceration of moral duty!’ Rachel Lynch

Genre: Mystery
