The murder of Lizzie Oullette, the most hated woman in rundown Copper Falls, Maine, jump-starts this clever, surprising psychological thriller from YA author Rosenfield (Inland). Few people mourn Lizzie, their dislike stemming from her rough background, the only child of the local junkyard’s owner. Instead, the residents of Copper Falls (“not even the yearly influx of tourists could reverse the town’s protracted death from neglect”) are more worried about her missing husband, the prime suspect in Lizzie’s murder, regarded by them as “some kind of hometown hero whose life had been unfairly derailed.” The investigation of Det. Ian Bird of the Maine State Police takes him to Boston to track down Adrienne and Ethan Richards, the wealthy couple who rented the lake house where Lizzie’s body was found. A much-despised disgraced financier, Ethan was never prosecuted for bilking many out of their life savings. Flashbacks reveal how the lives of Lizzie and smug, arrogant Adrienne intersected with fatal results. The superb character-driven plot delivers an astonishing, believable jolt. Rosenfield shines a searing light on issues of classism, jealousy, and squandered potential. Agent: Yfat Reiss Gendell, Foundry Media. (Oct.)

This grisly, gut-twisting blockbuster of a mystery from pop-culture and political writer Rosenfield deserves two big thumbs up. Lizzie Ouellette has always been considered trailer trash by the citizens of Copper Falls, Maine. She and her dad run a junkyard, but their biggest sin is that they weren’t born in Copper Falls. Lizzie’s dad moved to town 40 years ago and married a local girl, but when Lizzie was a kid, her mother—drunk and drugged—died in a car crash. Lizzie’s had a tough life, winding up getting pregnant by and then marrying Dwayne, the ne’er-do-well son of the local preacher. Nevertheless, whatever she’s done wrong, whatever secrets she kept, she surely doesn't deserve to be murdered, her body left in the torched junkyard. Dwayne and his shotgun are missing, so the local cops conclude that he shot Lizzie and fled. It’s not that easy, as the state police investigator who found the body suspects. Readers will be gripped by this Byzantine and astonishing story in which one gasp-inducing twist follows on the heels of another. A unique page-turner that just begs to be turned into a movie.
