Nothing Can Hurt you is a propulsive thriller that has “Netflix limited series” written all over it. Based on a true story, this tangled web of murder, revenge, resignation, and intrigue is a winner. Each chapter presents new wrinkles and insights into the aftermath of a small-town murder that has echoed across decades.

A young girl is found murdered, partially covered by snow. She is found by a housewife taking a walk.
The girl was murdered by her boyfriend. He was not convicted.
This book is based on a true story. It relates how the murder affected the people that the girl had come in contact with. Like throwing a pebble in the water and seeing the concentric circles, so does this story meld together the characters involved in the girls circle.
Very well written. Take a you into the realm of obsession.

(ARC) This is a strong work, though a little hard to describe. Initially designed to walk & talk like a murder mystery, what unfolds is a series of vignettes forming an extended meditation on how murder -- gendered violence in particular -- is digested by individuals, and (to a lesser extent) presented in media. Executed with engaging, straightforward prose in a variety of styles. Interesting read -- more subtle than you might expect.
