Waterstones Says

A compelling crime thriller that takes a panoramic view of America’s opioid crisis, Long Bright River is a hard-edged tale of desperation and addiction with a compassionate heart and enthralling storyline. At its core a heart-rending account of a mother’s anguished search for her missing daughter, Moore’s accomplished novel is gripping and emotionally rewarding reading.

Kensington Ave, Philadelphia

The first place you go for drugs and sex
The last place you want to look for your sister

Mickey Fitzpatrick has been patrolling the 24th District for years. She knows most of the working women by name. She knows what desperation looks like and what people will do when they need a fix. She's become used to finding overdose victims: their numbers are growing every year. But every time she sees someone sprawled out, slumped over, cold to the touch, she has to pray it's not her sister, Kacey.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Every so often a thriller comes along that is so remarkable that it transcends genre and Long Bright River is one such book. The mystery at its heart is absorbing, thoughtful and perfectly paced and Mickey is a flawed heroine who it's easy to root for. But the fourth novel from acclaimed American writer Moore is also heartbreakingly profound in exploring the strain put on families and entire communities by the opioid crisis in US cities. It exposes the way addicted parents' broken promises inflict childhood wounds that never heal. But it also gives hope that familial bonds and community spirit can ultimately triumph. This flawless masterpiece deserves to be a bestseller.' - The Daily Express 

'Strong characters and some truly evocative writing.' - The Guardian

'Tough, tense and twisty - but tender, human and deeply affecting, too ... I don't have a sister, but when I finished the book I called my brother, just to hear his voice.' - Lee Child

“Emotional and Hard-hitting”

This book is so impactful, so well developed, and the characters so nuanced that it would succeed as a simple family drama - however, it also excels as a police procedural that has lots of twists and shocks along the... More

“Great family drama, light on mystery”

This was a poignant and well told tale of two sisters on very different life paths that was a little bit lacking in the mystery element but very strong on the family drama. It tells the story of Mickey, a beat cop in... More
