Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In the propulsive debut novel from the host of the #1 true crime podcast Crime Junkie, a journalist uncovers her hometown’s dark secrets when she becomes obsessed with the unsolved murder of her childhood neighbor—and the disappearance of another girl twenty years later.


You can’t ever know for sure what happens behind closed doors.

Everyone from Wakarusa, Indiana, remembers the infamous case of January Jacobs, who was discovered in a ditch hours after her family awoke to find her gone. Margot Davies was six at the time, the same age as January—and they were next-door neighbors. In the twenty years since, Margot has grown up, moved away, and become a big-city journalist. But she’s always been haunted by the feeling that it could’ve been her. And the worst part is, January’s killer has never been brought to justice.

When Margot returns home to help care for her uncle after he is diagnosed with early-onset dementia, she feels like she’s walked into a time capsule. Wakarusa is exactly how she remembers—genial, stifled, secretive. Then news breaks about five-year-old Natalie Clark from the next town over, who’s gone missing under circumstances eerily similar to January’s. With all the old feelings rushing back, Margot vows to find Natalie and to solve January’s murder once and for all.

But the police, Natalie’s family, the townspeople—they all seem to be hiding something. And the deeper Margot digs into Natalie’s disappearance, the more resistance she encounters, and the colder January’s case feels. Could January’s killer still be out there? Is it the same person who took Natalie? And what will it cost to finally discover what truly happened that night twenty years ago?

Twisty, chilling, and intense, All Good People Here is a searing tale that asks: What are your neighbors capable of when they think no one is watching?

Thinking Face“Unfortunately, All Good People Here is a retelling of the JonBenet Ramsey case without making note that that’s what the book is doing. It would have been appropriate for Ashley Flowers to provide an author’s note stating that fact, or to change more of the details of this story so that it differed more from that case.”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“I really liked this book. The only reason it’s not a 5/5 for me is because we don’t know what happens to Margot. And the ending was disturbing lol but other than that it was good!”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“This book was sort of a slow start for me but the last third of the book were great & worth the read. I was slightly disappointed in the ending & there still being loose ends I wish would have been tied up. Overall I would recommend if you enjoy crime novels!”
