Book Review: The Night Swim by Megan Goldin


Rachel Krall’s true crime podcast has risen to stardom quickly. Many people who are seeking justice for loved ones contact her in hopes that she will investigate to find answers.

When Rachel travels to Neopolis to cover a rape trial, someone is following her leaving notes. The person stalking her wants help with a murder that occurred 25 years ago to a young girl named Jenny Stills. Originally the outcome was declared drowning, but the person following Rachel insists it was a murder.

Rachel begins to investigate the murder of Jenny Stiles while attending the rape trial and begins to see connections between these two cases in this small town.

My Thoughts:

This was my second book by Megan Goldin. I was a big fan of The Escape Room. The Night Swim was well written and had an intriguing and intricate plot, but the content matter was extremely hard to read at times.

I have hopes for another book about Rachel Krall and her podcast investigation. I enjoyed her character and desire to solve cold cases.

This book was pretty disturbing at points. If you have a trigger for sexual assault, I don’t recommend you read this book due to the graphic content.

I received a free copy of The Night Swim from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to Netgalley for giving me this opportunity!
