Description-

  • THE MUST-READ MULTIMILLION BESTSELLING MYSTERY SERIES•  More dark secrets are exposed in this addictive, true-crime fueled sequel when Pip finds herself in another deadly case.
    Pip is not a detective anymore.
    With the help of Ravi Singh, she released a true-crime podcast about the murder case they solved together last year. The podcast has gone viral, yet Pip insists her investigating days are behind her.
    But she will have to break that promise when someone she knows goes missing. Jamie Reynolds has disappeared, on the very same night the town hosted a memorial for the sixth-year anniversary of the deaths of Andie Bell and Sal Singh.
    The police won't do anything about it. And if they won't look for Jamie then Pip will, uncovering more of her town's dark secrets along the way... and this time everyone is listening. But will she find him before it's too late?
    And don't miss the finale, As Good as Dead!

Excerpts-

  • From the book

    One

    It was still there, every time she opened the front door. It wasn’t real, she knew that, just her mind filling in the absence, bridging the gap. She heard it: dog claws skittering, rushing to welcome her home. But it wasn’t, it couldn’t be. It was just a memory, the ghost of a sound that had always been there. 

    “Pip, is that you?” her mom called from the kitchen. 

    “Hey,” Pip replied, dropping her bronze-colored backpack in the hall, textbooks thumping together inside. 

    Josh was in the living room, sitting on the floor two feet from the TV, fast-forwarding through the ads on the Disney Channel. “You’ll get square eyes,” Pip remarked as she walked by. 

    “You’ll get a square butt,” Josh snapped back with a snort. A terrible retort, objectively speaking, but he was quick for a ten-year-old. 

    “Hi, darling, how was school?” her mom asked, sipping from a flowery mug as Pip walked into the kitchen and settled on one of the stools at the counter. 

    “Fine. It was fine.” School was always fine now. Not good, not bad. Just fine. She pulled off her shoes, the leather unsticking from her feet and smacking against the tiles. 

    “Ugh,” her mom said. “Do you always have to leave your shoes in the kitchen?” 

    “Do you always have to catch me doing it?” 

    “Yes. I’m your mother,” she said, whacking Pip’s arm lightly with her new cookbook. “Oh, and, Pippa, I need to talk to you about something.” 

    The full name. So much meaning in that extra syllable.

    “Am I in trouble?” 

    Her mom didn’t answer the question. “Flora Green called me today. You know she’s the new teaching assistant at Josh’s school?” 

    “Yes. . . .” Pip nodded for her mother to continue. 

    “Joshua got in trouble today, sent to the principal.” Her mom’s brow knitted. “Apparently Camilla Brown’s pencil sharpener went missing, and Josh decided to interrogate his classmates about it, finding evidence and drawing up a persons of interest list. He made four kids cry.” 

    “Oh,” Pip said, that pit opening up in her stomach again. Yes, she was in trouble. “OK, OK. Should I talk to him?”

    “Yes, I think you should. Now,” her mom said, raising her mug and taking a noisy sip. 

    Pip slid off the stool with a gritted smile and padded back toward the living room. 

    “Josh,” she said lightly, sitting on the floor beside him. She muted the television. 

    “Hey!”

    Pip ignored him. “So, I heard what happened at school today.” 

    “Oh yeah. There’s two main suspects.” He turned to her, his brown eyes lighting up. “Maybe you can help—” 

    “Josh, listen to me,” Pip said, tucking her dark hair behind her ears. “Being a detective is not all it’s cracked up to be. In fact . . . it’s a pretty bad thing to be.” 

    “But I—”

    “Just listen, OK? Being a detective makes the people around you unhappy. Makes you unhappy . . . ,” she said, her voice withering away until she cleared her throat and pulled it back. “Remember Dad told you what happened to Barney, why he got hurt?” 

    Josh nodded, his eyes growing wide and sad. 

    “That’s what happens when you’re a detective. The people...

    January 15, 2021
    In this suspenseful follow-up to A Good Girl's Guide to Murder (2020), Pippa Fitz-Amobi breaks her promise to give up sleuthing when a friend goes missing. Pip's viral true-crime podcast detailing her successful investigation into the murder of Andie Bell has earned her both fans and detractors and cemented her reputation as a notable young detective. She remains close to Ravi Singh, whose older brother was under suspicion in that case. When her friend Connor Reynolds begs for her help because his older brother, Jamie, has disappeared, she declines to investigate but offers to speak to the police about it. College dropout Jamie, 24, has a history of leaving home without notice, so the police write off his case, compelling Pippa to take matters into her own hands despite her promise to her parents that she would be more careful. From his strange internet search history to his private conversations with a catfish, the truth behind Jamie's disappearance is darker than anyone expected. Pip is haunted by the repercussions of her first case--including the ongoing trial of a serial rapist--and undergoes an identity crisis that challenges her beliefs about what makes a person good. Podcast transcripts, Instagram messages, and news articles with time stamps marking the growing length of Jamie's absence piece together a thrilling puzzle that will keep readers asking questions even after the story's end. Most main characters are White. Psychologically stirring and truly modern. (Mystery. 14-18)

    Gr 9 Up-Pip Fitz-Amobi is once again putting her detective skills to work. After everything that happened when she worked on the Andie Bell and Sal Singh case, Pip decided to leave her crime-solving days behind her. Sure, her podcast, "A Good Girl's Guide to Murder," went viral, but other than reporting on Max Hasting's trial, she is done. Then Jamie Reynolds disappears, and the police won't do anything about it, so Jamie's brother Connor turns to Pip to help locate him. After much debate, Pip agrees to use her skills and platform, thus beginning "A Good Girl's Guide to Murder" season two. Jackson has brought readers another page-turning mystery/thriller starring the fantastic crime-solver Pip. Jackson brilliantly lays out the clues which may or may not be necessary for finding Jamie. Interwoven into the story are transcripts from Pip's podcast and interviews she conducts, as well as her case notes. The cast of supporting characters is diverse, though Pip, Connor, and Jamie are all white. This fast-paced read is filled with twists and turns and is sure to keep readers guessing until the end. VERDICT A recommended purchase, especially where the first book is popular.-Amanda Borgia, Uniondale P.L., NY
