Audio Book Summary

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In the propulsive debut novel from the host of the #1 true crime podcast Crime Junkie, a journalist uncovers her hometown’s dark secrets when she becomes obsessed with the unsolved murder of her childhood neighbor—and the disappearance of another girl twenty years later.
 
You can’t ever know for sure what happens behind closed doors.

Everyone from Wakarusa, Indiana, remembers the infamous case of January Jacobs, who was discovered in a ditch hours after her family awoke to find her gone. Margot Davies was six at the time, the same age as January—and they were next-door neighbors. In the twenty years since, Margot has grown up, moved away, and become a big-city journalist. But she’s always been haunted by the feeling that it could’ve been her. And the worst part is, January’s killer has never been brought to justice.

When Margot returns home to help care for her uncle after he is diagnosed with early-onset dementia, she feels like she’s walked into a time capsule. Wakarusa is exactly how she remembers—genial, stifled, secretive. Then news breaks about five-year-old Natalie Clark from the next town over, who’s gone missing under circumstances eerily similar to January’s. With all the old feelings rushing back, Margot vows to find Natalie and to solve January’s murder once and for all.

But the police, Natalie’s family, the townspeople—they all seem to be hiding something. And the deeper Margot digs into Natalie’s disappearance, the more resistance she encounters, and the colder January’s case feels. Could January’s killer still be out there? Is it the same person who took Natalie? And what will it cost to finally discover what truly happened that night twenty years ago?

Twisty, chilling, and intense, All Good People Here is a searing tale that asks: What are your neighbors capable of when they think no one is watching?

    My only complaint is in the beginning the case felt reminiscent of the Jon Benet Ramsey case. Dancer vs beauty queen, twin vs brother. Those sort of things. It felt to safe. However, as the book and characters developed I was pleasantly surprised with how captivating it became. I hope Ashley continues to write more novels. She definitely has a gift.

    Her true crime background really helps to takes you on a journey in this thrilling murder mystery! Wish the ending had a little more closure, but still a great listen!

    I so very much wanted to love this book. I'm a pretty big Ashley Flowers fan from all the great podcasting work she does. I didn't love the book. It's pretty solid. It's not bad, by any means. I feel like it was very cookie cutter. It checked all the murder/mystery/thriller boxes. It just didn't go much beyond that. I had figured out all the plot twists well ahead of time. I thought it was pretty obvious, actually. I hope Ashley keeps writing novels. I think this first time out was a solid effort. Just a little too safe, and cliche.

    I went into this book with high expectations because I love all of Ashley Flowers’ podcasts. It honestly just let me down. I really hated the narration, like I get it would have been too much work to include a male voice actor, but at times it was so distracting. To be fair, I don’t think fiction is for me, because of my crime junkie mind I wanted to see which each character looked like. If she were to make another book, I’d probably read it, but I definitely would go in with lower expectations
