The highly-anticipated finale to the A Good Girl's Guide to Murder series, the instant bestsellers that read like your favorite true crime podcast or show. By the end of this mystery series, you'll never think of good girls the same way again...

Pip is about to head to college, but she is still haunted by the way her last investigation ended. She’s used to online death threats in the wake of her viral true-crime podcast, but she can’t help noticing an anonymous person who keeps asking her: Who will look for you when you’re the one who disappears?

Soon the threats escalate and Pip realizes that someone is following her in real life. When she starts to find connections between her stalker and a local serial killer caught six years ago, she wonders if maybe the wrong man is behind bars.

Police refuse to act, so Pip has only one choice: find the suspect herself—or be the next victim. As the deadly game plays out, Pip discovers that everything in her small town is coming full circle . . .and if she doesn’t find the answers, this time she will be the one who disappears. . .

This is the final book in the series, and I was very excited to read it! I have really enjoyed following Pip’s journey and was eager to find out how the trilogy would wrap up.

Pip is trying to hide it, but she’s struggling in the wake of the events at the end of Good Girl, Bad Blood, and things get worse when she seems to be a target of harassment by an anonymous online account. I could feel Pip’s tension and paranoia grow, and just when I thought I had figured out where the story was going, it took an unexpected turn.

This book was dark, but it was also gripping and exhilarating. The lengths Pip will go to in her search for answers and to feel in control and safe were surprising to me, but I love the way this story builds on everything that has come before. How could Pip not be affected by all that’s happened to her and all she’s seen? Being in her head was unpleasant at times and frustrating, but I could understand why she behaved as she did. She was trying to cope with some major trauma.

As always, I love Ravi, and I just think he and Pip were such a perfect match for each other. I also appreciated how ambitious this story was, even if it did feel like there was too much going on or too many ‘one last thing’s, particularly by the end.

I have really enjoyed this series and I’m sad it’s over, but this was a satisfying conclusion. What a great series! Highly recommended!
