Who are you when no one is watching?

When beloved high school student Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no one in her sleepy Colorado suburb is untouched - not the boy who loved her too much, not the girl who wanted her perfect life, not the police officer assigned to investigate. In the aftermath of the tragedy, these three unforgettable characters - Cameron, Jade, and Russ - must each confront their darkest secrets in an effort to find solace, the truth, or both.

Intoxicating and intense, Girl in Snow is a compelling mystery set in small-town America. By focusing on those affected by the crime, rather than the crime itself, Danya Kukafka asks - what's the difference between who people seem to be and who they really are?

Winner of a 2018 Hearst Big Book Award: Good Housekeeping's Crime Book of the Year.
Shortlisted for the 2018 CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger.

Praise for this book

"I couldn't put this one down." - Brit Bennett

"A sensational debut - great characters, mysteries within mysteries, and page-turning pace. Highly recommended." - Lee Child

"Girl in Snow is a haunting, lyrical novel about love, loss, and terror. Reading it felt like entering another world, where things and people - were not as they at first appeared. The world Kukafka so masterfully creates is suspenseful and electrifying; I was willing to follow her wherever she took me." - Anton DiSclafani

"From its startling opening line right through to its stunning conclusion, Girl in Snow is a perfectly-paced and tautly-plotted thriller. Danya Kukafka's misfit characters are richly drawn, her prose is both elegant and eerie - this is an incredibly accomplished debut." - Paula Hawkins

"There is a frightful truth to Danya Kukafka's characterizations, and the mystery at the heart of Girl in Snow is so elegantly constructed. It's an exceptional, unnerving debut novel. I'm already counting the days until her next one." - Owen King
