The Night Swim

A Novel

Bookseller Recommendation

The Night Swim

“While Megan Goldin’s new novel The Night Swim is quite different from her first book, I think I liked this one even better. I am getting kind of tired of ‘psychological’ thrillers so was glad to find that Night Swim was actually a crime drama. I loved the way it was presented, a podcast by Rachel Krall about a rape case currently being tried in court and Rachel looking into a possible murder of a 16 yo girl 20 years earlier. Many of the same people that lived in the small NC town 20 years ago still live there. And, because of how small it is everyone knows everyone or at least knows something about everyone. So, it is no surprise that the two cases end up having some of the same people involved but how they end up being involved is a huge surprise. I really liked the character of Rachel Krall and hope that she may appear in a future book with another cold case or a case of guilty or not guilty. Listening to the audio version really made the podcast seem real and current.”

In The Night Swim, a new thriller from Megan Goldin, author of the “gripping and unforgettable” (Harlen Coben) The Escape Room, a true crime podcast host covering a controversial trial finds herself drawn deep into a small town’s dark past and a brutal crime that took place there years before.

Ever since her true-crime podcast became an overnight sensation and set an innocent man free, Rachel Krall has become a household name—and the last hope for people seeking justice. But she’s used to being recognized for her voice, not her face. Which makes it all the more unsettling when she finds a note on her car windshield, addressed to her, begging for help.

The new season of Rachel's podcast has brought her to a small town being torn apart by a devastating rape trial. A local golden boy, a swimmer destined for Olympic greatness, has been accused of raping the beloved granddaughter of the police chief. Under pressure to make Season 3 a success, Rachel throws herself into her investigation—but the mysterious letters keep coming. Someone is following her, and she won’t stop until Rachel finds out what happened to her sister twenty-five years ago. Officially, Jenny Stills tragically drowned, but the letters insist she was murdered—and when Rachel starts asking questions, nobody in town wants to answer. The past and present start to collide as Rachel uncovers startling connections between the two cases—and a revelation that will change the course of the trial and the lives of everyone involved.

Electrifying and propulsive, The Night Swim asks: What is the price of a reputation? Can a small town ever right the wrongs of its past? And what really happened to Jenny?
