The Night Swim by Megan Goldin | Review

The Night Swim | Melanie Goldin | St. Martin's Press | Pub: August 4, 2020 | Pages: 344

How many times can I say atmospheric in my reviews?! But honestly, books that are atmospheric just get me! I enjoy them so much more, and this one is no different.

I loved the short chapters! It always makes me read more in a short period of time since it’s easier to just be like “one more chapter”. In addition to short chapters, we get two different POVs! Which makes the story more suspenseful, in my opinion!

I really loved the podcasts part of the book, it made me even more curious and not want to put the book down!

I don’t want to get too much into details because there are twists and turns along the way; I don’t want to spoil anything! Especially the ending!

Having read both The Night Swim and The Escape Room, I’m a Megan Goldin fan! Both books were great! Highly recommend her books!

Thank you to St. Martin's Press for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


After the first season of her true crime podcast became an overnight sensation and set an innocent man free, Rachel Krall is now a household name―and the last hope for thousands of 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 small town of Neapolis is being torn apart by a devastating rape trial. The town’s golden boy, a swimmer destined for Olympic greatness, has been accused of raping a high school student, the beloved granddaughter of the police chief. Under pressure to make Season Three a success, Rachel throws herself into interviewing and investigating―but the mysterious letters keep showing up in unexpected places. 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 insists she was murdered―and when Rachel starts asking questions, nobody seems to want to answer. The past and present start to collide as Rachel uncovers startling connections between the two cases 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?
