The Night Swim: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Date: August 2020

Duration: 9 hours 59 minutes


'Narrators Bailey Carr, Samantha Desz, and January LaVoy are the perfect trio to narrate Megan Goldin's latest thriller involving a true- crime podcaster and her coverage of a rape trial in a North Carolina town.' -- AudioFile Magazine

In The Night Swim, a new thriller from Megan Goldin, author of the “gripping and unforgettable” (Harlen Coben) The Escape Room, a true crime podcast host covering a controversial trial finds herself drawn deep into a small town’s dark past and a brutal crime that took place there years before.

Ever since her true-crime podcast became an overnight sensation and set an innocent man free, Rachel Krall has become a household name—and the last hope for people seeking justice. But she’s used to being recognized for her voice, not her face. Which makes it all the more unsettling when she finds a note on her car windshield, addressed to her, begging for help.

The new season of Rachel's podcast has brought her to a small town being torn apart by a devastating rape trial. A local golden boy, a swimmer destined for Olympic greatness, has been accused of raping the beloved granddaughter of the police chief. Under pressure to make Season 3 a success, Rachel throws herself into her investigation—but the mysterious letters keep coming. Someone is following her, and she won’t stop until Rachel finds out what happened to her sister twenty-five years ago. Officially, Jenny Stills tragically drowned, but the letters insist she was murdered—and when Rachel starts asking questions, nobody in town wants to answer. The past and present start to collide as Rachel uncovers startling connections between the two cases—and a revelation that will change the course of the trial and the lives of everyone involved.

Electrifying and propulsive, The Night Swim asks: What is the price of a reputation? Can a small town ever right the wrongs of its past? And what really happened to Jenny?

    very well done

  • KT

    I thought this was very well done! I haven’t enjoyed a mystery (it’s not a thriller) this much in a while. The subject matter is harrowing at times, but spot on relating to what listener sees and experiences in everyday life. I think audio is the best way to consume this book. The podcast chapters are perfect for an audiobook! I did not see the ending coming, but it wasn’t a nonsensical “twist” like so many thrillers today have.

  • Anonymous

    I enjoyed the book, but felt it dragged in places and kept jumping from story to podcast in storyline, which also was somewhat confusing. Good storyline.
