The Ghost of Gracie Flynn

The Ghost of Gracie Flynn

Author: Joanna Morrison

Publisher: Fremantle Press

Published: 2022

When university student Gracie Flynn dies in tragic circumstances, her three friends—Robyn, Cohen and Sam—deal with the aftermath in their own way. Instead of leaning on each other, they drift apart and lose touch. Eighteen years later, the three are reunited by a chance encounter, but death soon rocks their lives again, after Sam’s body is discovered aboard a boat on the river. As the past rushes up to collide with the present, and secrets—both old and new—are uncovered, everything they thought they knew will completely unravel.

Narrated by an other-worldly storyteller, The Ghost of Gracie Flynn is not only the story of two crimes, but a multi-faceted exploration of grief and trauma, and the complex ways these can permeate our lives. Shortlisted for the 2020 City of Fremantle Hungerford Award, The Ghost of Gracie Flynn is a stunning debut from an author to watch.
