"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.
Having spent my first 18 years in an incredibly small mountain town, Megan Miranda's descriptions of the families, the friends, the gossip, the rumors, the closeness and loyalty...it's all spot on. I only wish the rest of the book had been so insightful.
I truly wanted to like this story...but the best I can say is, for me, it wasn't hate.
The first 75% of All the Missing Girls is clunky and disjointed, with next to no character development. Clearly, the author was trying to create red herrings, but because of the way the book was written, every page just felt unfinished. I'd read a chapter and instead of feeling enchanted by the backward story line, I just felt empty and incomplete. Sadly, this was yet another book in which the author chose to write characters with no redeemable qualities...none in this novel were particularly likable. That's always hard for me as a reader. I need someone to cheer for.
The final 25% is revelation after revelation. It's literally non-stop. Unfortunately, the "twists" were a bit underwhelming, and more than a little predictable.
I started reading this book on April 28th...just finished it on May 5th. That NEVER happens. I usually average at least 3 books a week. I was just so bored, I had to force myself to pick up my Kindle and read the next chapter. There was nothing mesmerizing here, folks.
