Synopsis

As featured on Simon Mayo's BBC Radio 2 Book Club.

'Girl in Snow is a perfectly-paced and tautly-plotted thriller.' Paul Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train.

Who are you when no one is watching?

When beloved high school student Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no one in her sleepy Colorado suburb is untouched – not the boy who loved her too much; not the girl who wanted her perfect life; not the police officer assigned to investigate. In the aftermath of the tragedy, these three unforgettable characters – Cameron, Jade, and Russ – must each confront their darkest secrets in an effort to find solace, the truth, or both.

In crystalline prose, Danya Kukafka explores the razor-sharp line between love and obsession, between watching and seeing, between reality and memory. Intoxicating and emotionally intense, Girl in Snow is a gripping debut novel that will linger long after the final page is turned.

In the media

This brooding and intense thriller will plunge readers into a dark world they may not want to enter - but they may be unable to tear themselves free . . . gives readers a different look into the idyllic, small-town life, and how not everything is as it appears on the surface
Booklist
Danya Kukafka makes a compelling case for the next Girl on the Train with a fast-paced thriller about a young girl whose body is found on a school playground in the dead of winter, leaving an obsessive loner, a jealous classmate, and a police officer as the prime suspects. It's no surprise then that it garnered an accolade from Paula Hawkins herself
