Real Easy: A Novel

No reviews

Bringing to mind Gillian Flynn and Tana French but completely unique, Marie Rutkoskis Real Easy is a compulsive, tenacious, and unexpectedly hopeful thriller.

Its 1999 and Samantha has danced for years at the Lovely Lady strip club. Shes not used to mixing work and friendship--after all, between her jealous boyfriend and his young daughter, she has enough on her plate. But the newest dancer is so clueless that Samantha feels compelled to help her learn the hustle and drama of the club: how to sweet-talk the boss, fit in with the other women, and make good money. One night, when the new girl needs a ride home, Samantha agrees to drive: a simple decision that turns deadly.

Georgia, another dancer drawn into the ensuing murder and missing person investigation, gathers information for Holly, a grieving detective determined to solve the case. Georgia just wants to help, but her involvement makes her a target. As Holly and Georgia round up their suspects, the storys point of view shifts between dancers, detectives, children, club patrons--and the killer.

Drawing on her experience as a former dancer, Marie Rutkoski immerses us in the captivating world of the club, which comes alive with complicated people trying their best to protect themselves and those they love. Character-driven and masterfully plotted, Real Easy gets to the heart of the timeless question: How do women live their lives knowing that men can hurt them?
