Staff Picks The Echo Killing by Christi Daugherty


The Echo Killing by Christi Daugherty

Looking for a series written with a Georgia city as a setting? 

Check out the Harper McClain series by Christi Daugherty! 

Set in Savannah, Georgia, the protagonist Harper McClain is a journalist for a small Savannah newspaper. The first in the series, The Echo Killing begins with a murder that bears a striking resemblance to McClain's mother's murder years earlier. Those familiar with Savannah will recognize some of the settings as well as the distinct feel of the town, and the increasing suspense will keep readers turning pages.
