“Long Bright River,” by Liz Moore is a crime novel, mystery/thriller about two daughters, one is a police officer and another a drug addict.

Ms. Moore lives in Philadelphia where the story takes place. It is a believable portrayal of the city and its seedy underbelly, the neighborhood of Kensington, where “abandos” filled with homeless, drug addicts recovering from their latest fix struggle to hold on.

A few of these addicts end up dead, and when their supposed death by overdose is actually confirmed to be death by murder, there is a new case developing where Mickey, the police officer, continuously expects to find the next victim to be her sister, Kacey. It has been a few months since she has heard from her sister and everyone she asks says they haven’t seen or heard from her in months.

This is a fascinating story of a real-to-life portrayal in Philadelphia, that could easily be any number of urban settings around the country. Themes such as family, loyalty, addiction, and boundaries are all explored in this novel.
