THE GONE DEAD by Chanelle Benz Thank you @tlcbooktours and @eccobooks for sending me this gifted copy! After reading WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING, I’m super excited to explore more social justice themed thrillers, and this one sounds incredible! Here’s the summary 👇🏾 “Billie James' inheritance isn't much: a little money and a shack in the Mississippi Delta. The house once belonged to her father, a renowned black poet who died unexpectedly when Billie was four years old. Though Billie was there when the accident happened, she has no memory of that day--and she hasn't been back to the South since. Thirty years later, Billie returns but her father's home is unnervingly secluded: her only neighbors are the McGees, the family whose history has been entangled with hers since the days of slavery. As Billie encounters the locals, she hears a strange rumor: that she herself went missing on the day her father died. As the mystery intensifies, she finds out that this forgotten piece of her past could put her in danger. Inventive, gritty, and openhearted, The Gone Dead is an astonishing debut novel about race, justice, and memory that lays bare the long-concealed wounds of a family and a country.” #thegonedead Does anyone else know other books that would fit in ‘social justice thrillers’? I’d love to add some to my list this spooky season!
