It's been fourteen years since Greer Dunning's older sister, Eliza, was murdered, and Greer's family has never been the same. And now there's been a similar killing in Greer's small Kansas hometown. A copycat, according to the authorities, but Greer is convinced there is more to the story. That Eliza's murderer had help all those years ago.
So Greer returns home after more than a decade away, desperate to answer the questions that have haunted her for years. And in her drive to uncover the truth, she forms a bond with the unlikeliest of allies. One that puts her in grave danger, as almost everyone in her small town becomes a suspect.
At once a riveting mystery and a deep exploration of guilt, loss, and the ways in which a violent murder transforms both the family of the victim and the family of the killer, I Did It For You will keep readers captivated through the very last page.

If you're looking for an engrossing thriller, this one ticks off all the boxes: sleek writing, insight into the complexity of horrible crimes, and a plot that will keep you guessing and turning just one more page late into the night."

"In this stellar standalone...Engel elevates the already tantalizing mystery with an uncommonly raw portrayal of Greer's grief—her palpable inner struggles form the backbone of the novel. Mysteries don't come much better than this."
