Christi Daugherty


C. J. Daugherty was 22 when she saw her first dead body, working as a crime reporter in Texas. Although she’s now left that world, she has never lost her fascination with what it is that drives some people to do awful things as well as the kind of people who will try to stop them. Her first adult novel, The Echo Killing, will be published in 2018 by HarperCollins and St. Martin’s Press.
