Cheri Reviews The Night Swim by Megan Goldin

The Night Swim: A Novel by Megan Goldin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m going 4.5 stars on this one (but rounding up on Goodreads).

I’m surprised by how much I got into this book. This is your standard mystery/thriller book but, even though I knew the bad guy had to be among a specific group, I was never sure which one it was until the final reveal. That doesn’t happen to me often and I absolutely love it when it does. When it does and it’s feasible and not because of bullshit twists that go far beyond my ability to suspend disbelief.

I stayed interested in both the current rape case and the cold case and never found myself being disappointed by moving from one to the other like I am sometimes when one story is much more interesting than the other. The author did a fantastic job, as far as I’m concerned.

This is one of those books where if you can do audio, you should. The protagonist is a true crime podcaster and the portions where she’s actually doing podcast segments have the bonus of music and sound effects. It was a lovely addition and never distracting.

Ms. Goldin has a new fan!

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing the audiobook!
