An Edgar Award Finalist for Best Novel

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).

Anxious Face with sweat“I struggled to follow certain parts of this story because it was jumping from different characters and time periods so much... BUT the end really made it all worth. I did listen to this book so I'd recommend reading this one!”

Thumbs Up“Really is addictive and couldn’t put it down. I found it hard to follow at times because it jumps between characters and time periods, and Knoll has these wonderful anecdotes to create rich characters but they’re often stuck right in the middle of a sequence of dialogue and I would have to double back to remember what was going on 😂 excellent read, would recommend to any fan of this genre”
