Lee and Victoria weren’t the only ones to love Before You Knew My Name by Jacqueline Bublitz… Here is what the QBD crew thought:
Perfect for true crime readers looking for a fresh perspective, this profoundly moving and heart-wrenching story by Jacqueline Bublitz demands to be read.
When Alice arrived in New York City, she was just a teenager looking for a fresh start. No one was to know that in one month she would be the city’s latest Jane Doe – an unidentified murder victim. But when Ruby, a lonely Australian woman, finds Alice’s body – her life is changed. Soon after the discovery, Ruby encounters a Death Club – a place where she feels free to explore her increasing obsession with the girl and her unidentified killer.
Stuck between life and death, Alice narrates Ruby’s story hoping this will help her come to terms with her passing. From the moment they cross paths, an enduring connection between the two women is formed… one that will lead to a murderer.
Instead of concentrating solely on the perpetrator, “Before You Knew My Name” takes a unique perspective and focuses on what happens when a member of the public discovers a victim of crime. Bublitz’s characters have depth and appeal – keeping readers engaged throughout every page. This story is beautifully written, thought-provoking, evocative, and highly recommended.
