"This thriller’s all of your fav page-turners (think: Luckiest Girl Alive, The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl) rolled into one.”
“Both [Gillian] Flynn’s and Miranda’s main characters also reclaim the right of female characters to be more than victim or femme fatale… All the Missing Girls is set to become one of the best books of 2016.”
— Los Angeles Review of Books
“Extremely interesting…a novel that will probably be called Hitchcockian.”
—The New York Times Book Review
“Are you paying attention? You'll need to be; this thriller will test your brain with its reverse chronological structure, and it's a page-turner to boot.”
“Intricately plotted…Ms. Miranda brings heightened suspense and a twist to this familiar scenario by telling the story, which unfolds over 15 days, in reverse chronological order.”
— The New York Times
“Fast-paced and frightening, All the Missing Girls will teach you why it's dangerous to go into the woods alone at night.”
“All the Missing Girls is the archetypal murder mystery, the kind it seems like everyone has been hungry for since Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl and Paula Hawkins's Girl on a Train.”
“A new spin on a classic "missing person" thriller, All the Missing Girls is the perfect read for thriller fans.”
"In All the Missing Girls Megan Miranda leads readers back through the past of a small southern town, enfolding them in a slow, tense nightmare of suspicion, menace, and tangled motives. A twisty, compulsive read--I loved it."
— Ruth Ware, author of IN A DARK, DARK WOOD
"Fiendishly plotted...Miranda convincingly conjures a haunted setting that serves as a character in its own right, but what really makes this roller-coaster so memorable is her inspired use of reverse chronology, so that each chapter steps further back in time, dramatically shifting the reader's perspective."
— Publishers Weekly, starred review
"As original as it is addictive, this story puts a knot in your gut from the opening pages. Then, through the wizardry of its unconventional structure, that knot tightens and tightens and will not let go until the final pages—and even then the story continues to haunt you. Vividly rendered, psychologically complex, and narratively acrobatic, All The Missing Girls is, above all, totally gripping."
— Tim Johnston, New York Times bestselling author of DESCENT
"Darkly nostalgic....Miranda takes a risk by telling the story backward, but it pays off with an undroppable thriller, plenty of romantic suspense, and a fresh take on the decades-old teenage-murder theme."
"All the Missing Girls is a smart, suspenseful, and emotionally complex thriller. Told in reverse, this story will make you want to lock the doors, turn off the phone, and read until the last satisfying page."
— Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of THE EX
"Megan Miranda’s utterly gripping and original All the Missing Girls keeps you off balance in the most perfect way. I was held hostage by the book from the first page to the stunning conclusion. This literally backward tale is a winner."
— Lisa Lutz, author of THE PASSENGER and HOW TO START A FIRE

Great characters, plots and twists! Will definitely keep reading this author.
Nicolette Farrell left her small hometown in North Carolina after high school graduation and started her own life, attended college, got a job as a school counselor, and met and became engaged to a lawyer in Philadelphia. But a call from her brother brings her back to her hometown to help with family issues surrounding her father’s dementia. When she returns, she is thrown back into small town life and the lives of her ex-boyfriend, dysfunctional high school friendships, and experiencing the loss of her mother and her missing high school best friend. After she arrives, another girl goes missing.
After reading suspense/thrillers for most of my life, I started reading this because it looked interesting and had good ratings. I initially disliked the way that it was written (reverse chronology for the most part) but after a while I got used to it and enjoyed it, although I had to remind myself with every chapter that I “didn’t know” what had happened in the last chapter to follow along with the current chapter.
As the story wound around though, you read a chapter and think back to previous chapters and what you learned about the characters in those chapters. It makes you want to go back and look at the language used in previous chapters to see if you could have predicted what you’re reading in this chapter. You make an assumption in one chapter that’s blown away six chapters later. It’s good stuff. I highly suggest it to those who love reading mystery/thrillers.
