Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2020 by: Entertainment Weekly, Vogue, Marie Claire, PopSugar, Bustle, Forbes & more!

"Navigates assuredly between the plot twists and big reveals. . . . Long Bright River is equal parts literary and thrilling." -O, The Oprah Magazine

"A thoughtful, powerful novel by a writer who displays enormous compassion for her characters. Long Bright River is an outstanding crime novel… I absolutely loved it."
-Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

Two sisters travel the same streets, though their lives couldn't be more different. Then one of them goes missing.

In a Philadelphia neighborhood rocked by the opioid crisis, two once-inseparable sisters find themselves at odds. One, Kacey, lives on the streets in the vise of addiction. The other, Mickey, walks those same blocks on her police beat. They don't speak anymore, but Mickey never stops worrying about her sibling.

Then Kacey disappears, suddenly, at the same time that a mysterious string of murders begins in Mickey's district, and Mickey becomes dangerously obsessed with finding the culprit--and her sister--before it's too late.

Alternating its present-day mystery with the story of the sisters' childhood and adolescence, Long Bright River is at once heart-pounding and heart-wrenching: a gripping suspense novel that is also a moving story of sisters, addiction, and the formidable ties that persist between place, family, and fate.

"The next Girl On The Train."
–Bustle

"Thoughtfully explores the power of nature versus nurture, the pull of addiction, and, and the lengths we go to for family." 
Marie Claire 

"Long Bright River is that wonderful thriller that subverts your expectations till the very last page." --The Washington Post

"An exquisite novel that dug its fingers into my heart and has refused to let go…I finished this novel shaken, both by its sheer emotional resonance and also because of how clear and familiar so much of what Moore describes feels to me.
Medium.com

"Electrifying … In taut, propulsive sentences, Moore draws on the police procedural in conjuring a community on the brink while exploring tensions between two sisters on either side of the thin blue line...Long Bright River is equal parts literary and thrilling – a compassionate, multidimensional look at an epidemic that surrounds us."
—Oprah Magazine

“Pulsating with breathtaking suspense and boundless compassion, Long Bright River is the kind of genre-defying novel that, once the final chapters close, you instantly implore people to read. Topical yet timeless, its page-turning narrative wrestles with the fissures and wreckage that addiction can inflict on a family—and a city. Liz Moore is a force, and Long Bright River should be on top of everyone's to-read list come January.” – Forbes

“A propulsive thriller and a poignant family saga.”Time Magazine

“Moore's confident Philadelphia-set police procedural. . . lives up to the hype, evolving from its genre-heavy introduction into a compelling portrayal of two siblings on different sides of the law.” – Entertainment Weekly

"Liz Moore’s Long Bright River is a riveting portrait of so many things—of grief, of sisterhood, of a neighborhood in despair. Moore makes you care about the people that society too often abandons and, in doing so, pulls off a hat trick of epic storytelling that is stigma-busting, love-rendering, and page-turning to the last word."
— Beth Macy, New York Times-bestselling author of Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company That Addicted America

"A superlative crime novel. Set against the backdrop of Philadelphia’s opioid crisis, this is not just a gripping mystery but a thoughtful, powerful novel by a writer who displays enormous compassion for her characters. Long Bright River is an outstanding crime novel, bringing to mind the best of Dennis Lehane or David Simon. I found myself eking out the final pages because I didn’t want it to end. I absolutely loved it."
—Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

"Long Bright River is a remarkable, profoundly moving novel about the ties that bind and the irrevocable wounds of childhood. It’s also a riveting mystery, perfectly paced. I loved every page of it."
—Dennis Lehane, New York Times-bestselling author of Since We Fell

"Liz Moore’s Long Bright River is the perfect literary page-turner. It’s a brilliantly plotted crime novel, yes, but it’s also a story about the complicated push and pull of family, and how much of our childhood traumas we carry forward through our lives. Anyone with a mother, a father, a brother, or a sister – anyone with a heart, for that matter – will love this book, as I did." 
—Mary Beth Keane, New York Times bestselling author of Ask Again, Yes
 
"Both sweeping and unbearably intimate, a riveting crime novel and a character-rich study of a city and its battered heart. And, in the way that Dennis Lehane anatomizes and explores his Boston, or Tana French her Dublin, Moore brings Philadelphia to vivid, wrenching life. Not to be missed."
—Megan Abbott, author of You Will Know Me

"It was excellent." 
Jami Attenberg, author of All This Could be Yours 

 “There is a real Dennis Lehane vibe to this mystery…This is well-written and well-plotted entertainment.” – Amazon Book Review

“I couldn’t put it down.” –Mental Floss

“Moore does a good job of creating the setting, Philadelphia, and has a kind of empathy for her characters that makes you root for them.” –Crime Reads

“Told in alternating timelines, this gritty, gripping mystery is the perfect first read of 2020.” – Hello Giggles

 

"Impossible to put down, impossible to forget." 
—Library Journal, (*starred review)
 
"One of the pleasures of this deeply moving, absolutely page-turning novel is the way Moore, in both the present and in flashbacks to Mickey and Kacey’s childhood and teen years, slowly peels back layer after layer, revealing the old-boy’s network in the Philadelphia police force, the depths of Mickey’s loneliness, and the way the city of Philadelphia, particularly Kensington, is woven into this story, for good or ill. Give this to readers who like character-driven crime novels with a strong sense of place."
—Booklist (* starred review)

"Smartly crafted. . .Filled with strong characters and a layered plot, this will please fans of both genre and literary fiction." 
—Publishers Weekly
