My Thoughts 

Extremely thought provoking, well paced, slow burn thriller that I couldn't stop reading.

The focus on the women, and the diminishing of the killer was fantastic. I was growing up in the time when the real Bundy had escaped and grew up in a world that felt surreal; so many seemingly so impressed with him, while the women he had cut off the lives of were rarely mentioned. 

I was impressed with Bright Young Women, and recommend it. 

Thank you to S&S / Marysue Rucci Books and NetGalley for the DRC


Two women from opposite sides of the country are brought together by violent acts of the same man, and become allies and sisters in arms as they pursue the justice that would otherwise elude them in one of the most acclaimed, highly anticipated thrillers of the year.

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).
