An Edgar Award Finalist for Best Novel

Masterfully blending elements of psychological suspense and true crime, Jessica Knoll—author of the bestselling novel Luckiest Girl Alive and the writer behind the Netflix adaption starring Mila Kunis—delivers a new and exhilarating thriller in Bright Young Women. The book opens on a Saturday night in 1978, hours before a soon-to-be-infamous murderer descends upon a Florida sorority house with deadly results. The lives of those who survive, including sorority president and key witness, Pamela Schumacher, are forever changed. Across the country, Tina Cannon is convinced her missing friend was targeted by the man papers refer to as the All-American Sex Killer—and that he’s struck again. Determined to find justice, the two join forces as their search for answers leads to a final, shocking confrontation.

Blisteringly paced, Bright Young Women is “Jessica Knoll at her best—an unflinching and evocative novel about the tabloid fascination with evil and the dynamic and brilliant women who have the real stories to tell” (Laura Dave, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Thing He Told Me); and “a compelling, almost hypnotic read and I loved it with a passion” (Lisa Jewell, New York Times bestselling author of None of This Is True).

Great book

A fantastic book. I really loved that this was a different take on a crime novel and one that seems to take the current opinions about true crime culture into account. I liked the characters and I thought they felt real jn ways that characters in these books sometimes do not. Would definitely recommend to anyone into true crime or thrillers.

Intriguing and relatable

I have felt these things before, not in the tragically awful sense that the victims in the story had to feel, but in my jobs and daily life. The creepy men that I’ve reported but ultimately pushed me out of my jobs. The ex-boyfriends that wouldn’t leave me alone when I said no. I am never going to look at the system the same again.
