Birdwatcher by Ann Greyson

An edgy, intricately plotted supernatural thriller…

Greyson’s arresting visuals conjure a vividly detailed world populated by multilayered, complex characters in her latest crime thriller. When twelve-year-old Abby vanishes in the wilderness of the majestic Pocono Mountains in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, Sheriff Andy Kirkman of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is assigned the case. As he digs deeper, he realizes a serial killer is on the loose, targeting young girls. But Abby is long-dead, and her spirit is still haunting the grounds of the cabin from where she went missing. Greyson is at ease mixing usual genre tropes to produce an absorbing crime story. The thorough, tight plotting allows for pitch-perfect pacing that keeps the reader invested. Sheriff Kirkman as the lead authority on the case is wholly engaging. Equally compelling are Billy, Missy, and Gail. But it’s the young, troubled Abby who steals the show: Greyson gives her an aura of melancholy and darkness, and readers wouldn’t help but root for the little girl to get some kind of peace. A page-turning crime story, packed with murder, mayhem, and supernatural intrigue.
