Long Bright River by Liz Moore front cover

In Liz Moore’s police thriller, the main characters are a Philadelphia police officer, Mickey Fitzpatrick, and her recidivist drug addict sister, Kacey. A lot of rough water has swirled under the bridge of their relationship – pain and hope and love and betrayal in alternating cycles. Now Kacey has disappeared. When young women who work the streets of her Kensington neighborhood start turning up dead, Mickey’s anxiety ratchets up daily. Will she bend the rules to save her sister? It’s a rewarding read, beautifully written, and you won’t be surprised that numerous reviewers picked it as a “best book of the year.”
