🎧 REVIEW: Killing Me Softly ðŸŽ§

Narrator performance: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Book rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

When white women go missing, the press covers it endlessly until they are found and justice is done. When black women go missing that is rarely the case. When Tracy Ellis goes missing, she gets coverage because she worked at the television studio, she is later found dead but the case goes cold. Her sister, Sondra, struggles with her loss and the dichotomy of how minority women are treated so she begins to make a documentary about it. As she researches these missing women, she starts to look into her sister’s case a little more deeply and uncovers a stunning reality.

We see chapters flip back and forth from Sondra to Tracy’s husband and his new wife with an occasional glimpse from a neighbor. There is one major twist that was definitely surprising but you see it coming well before Sondra does and following her as she reaches a fevered pitch is quite fun. There’s a great villain in this one, you will love to hate them!

We don’t get enough thrillers with all black casts and this one was great. I listened to this one on audiobook and I thought the narrator was really good, she had great inflection and emotion as she reads. Definitely check this one out if you love a good mystery with a killer twist but don’t mind a slower set of bread crumbs that lead you to a great finale.

Thanks to Kate Rock Book Tours for a copy. All opinions above are my own.

What’s the last audibook that you completely lost yourself in?
