Review

Disturbing but thought-provoking in its exploration of society’s obsession with serial killers, it puts a contemporary spin on the page-turning genre. - The Independent

Bright Young Women is a fearless and intoxicating ride into the aftershocks of a series of brutal murders. Knoll explores in vivid, pointillist prose the effects on the ‘bright young women’ of the title, both the victims snuffed out in their glorious prime, and those left behind in their wake. It's a compelling, almost hypnotic read and I loved it with a passion. -- Lisa Jewell, Bestselling author of None of This is True

A sharp examination of our culture's obsession with serial killers and true crime. - Harper's Bazaar, Best Books of the Year

A captivating read - Woman

Knoll sets about dismantling every last Bundy myth with a controlled but palpable rage. I already loved how she writes, but this book is extraordinary. Genuinely can't rememebr the last time a novel moved me so much. Don't miss it. -- Catherine Ryan-Howard, author of Run Time

Bright Young Women is Jessica Knoll at her best: an unflinching and evocative novel about the tabloid fascination with evil and the dynamic and brilliant women who have the real story to tell. -- Laura Dave, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Thing He Told Me

Blistering and powerful, Bright Young Women is an almost unbearably vivid story of sisterhood and survival. With razor-sharp skill, Jessica Knoll deconstructs the myth of a criminal mastermind, revealing the women he seeks to destroy as the truly brilliant ones. -- Flynn Berry, New York Times bestselling author of Northern Spy and Under the Harrow

It's an angry book, but also an enthralling one... it's been described as a 'silent scream of a book' and that it is, but nonetheless this scream is sharply and intelligently, if disturbingly, conveyed. - Meath Chronicle

Jessica Knoll is a careful writer, and this, her third novel, is a perfect match for her cold dissection of social mores and her fierce rage at misogyny . . . She tears apart the restrictive world of women’s roles and lays bare the purpose of such hobbles: to keep women from making a scene, to keep them from seeking justice, and most of all, to keep them from seeking their own lives. - CrimeReads/LitHub, Most Anticipated Books of 2023

[A] huge summer read . . . one of those great stories that you can't put down! -- Reese Witherspoon, InStyle on Luckiest Girl Alive

Knife-sharp and enthralling -- Megan Abbott, author of The Turnout on The Favourite Sister

Writing with pulse-pounding tension and urgency, Knoll expertly conjures an atmosphere of dread and anxiety while paying tribute to all the bright young women whose lives are cut short or forever changed by craven actions of sociopaths. An utterly absorbing, disturbing, and absolutely essential read. - Booklist, starred review

An unsettling and thrilling page-turner . . . Knoll’s haunting, must-read account will captivate [readers] until the end. - Library Journal (S
