Set in Northeast Philadelphia, Long Bright River is a compelling and gritty novel about two women’s struggles – one, a police officer who patrols a high-crime district populated by dealers and sex workers; the other, her sister who is suffering from addiction and is missing. Against the backdrop of a small community that is foundering in an endless cycle of drug addiction, desperation and crime, Officer Fitzpatrick’s search for her sister, Kacey, is made more urgent when she discovers a body. Then a second. Then a third. A killer is on the loose, targeting women who engage in sex work to fund their addictions. With every new victim, Officer Fitzpatrick is filled with the fear that it might be Kacey; relief when it is not and dread that they may not catch the killer before it is too late.
