Gay Degani's 'What Came Before' gives the reader interesting characters in a well-written novel of much mystery. I highly recommend this book.

A very visual writer, a delight to read.

I have followed her writing and love all her work.

A quick read, 'What Came Before' left me hungry for more! Degani knows how to bring characters to life and care about what happens to them. I look forward to reading more from this author!

Loved the short snappy chapters and zippy pace of this novel.

Great debut novel. T

This a fast-paced entertaining story that combines elements of a good police procedural with a family mystery. It has great pacing. The main characters are well-drawn and believable. I cared about Abby and Mackenna and I kept turning the page to find out what happened. It’s a good story.

A fast-paced murder mystery and a great character-driven story.

This author kept me on the edge of my seat and surprised me at every turn! A great read!
