The It Girl by Ruth Ware

Literary Loop

Described as “The Agatha Christie of our generation” and the “Queen of Crime,” #1 New York Times bestselling author Ruth Ware returns with an unputdownable mystery following a woman on the search for answers a decade after her friend’s murder.

April was the first person Hannah Jones met at Oxford. Vivacious, bright, occasionally vicious and the ultimate “It” girl, she quickly pulled Hannah into her dazzling orbit. Together, they developed a group of devoted and inseparable friends — Will, Hugh, Ryan and Emily — during their first term. By the end of the year, April was dead.

Now, a decade later, Hannah and Will are expecting their first child, and the man convicted of killing April, former Oxford porter John Neville, has died in prison. Relieved to have finally put the past behind her, Hannah’s world is rocked when a young journalist comes knocking and presents new evidence that Neville may have been innocent.

As Hannah reconnects with old friends and delves deeper into the mystery of April’s death, she realizes that the friends she thought she knew all have something to hide…including a murder.
