You know when you’re reading a book, and you have that immediate moment of recognition. Like, yes, there it is. That is the vibe. In the case of How to Find a Missing Girl, the vibe is very much “Be gay, do crime.” Naturally, I needed to immediately construct a playlist around that vibe that was equal parts darkness and crime and queer yearning. The result is slightly insane, full of feelings, and (mostly) a good time, exactly what you’d want for reading a thriller. Happy listening and reading!
How to Find a Missing Girl
“The voice that this generation’s mystery readers have been waiting for…How to Find a Missing Girl is edge-of-your-seat compelling from beginning to end.” —#1 New York Times bestselling author Chloe Gong
For fans of A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder and Veronica Mars, this whip-smart thriller follows a sapphic detective agency as they seek the truth behind a growing trail of missing girls in small-town Louisiana.
A year ago, beloved cheerleader Stella Blackthorn vanished without a trace. Devastated, her younger sister, Iris, launched her own investigation, but all she managed to do was scare off the police’s only lead and earn a stern warning: Once she turns eighteen, more meddling means prison-level consequences.
Then, a year later, the unthinkable happens. Iris’s ex-girlfriend, Heather, goes missing, too—just after dropping the polarizing last episode of her true crime podcast all about Iris’s sister. This time, nothing will stop Iris and her amateur sleuthing agency from solving these disappearances.
But with a suspicious detective watching her every move, an enemy-turned-friend-turned-maybe-more to contend with, and only thirty days until she turns eighteen, it’s a race against the clock for Iris to solve the most dangerous case of her life.
