How far would you go to solve a murder?

Elaine Napier, an investigative journalist who is made redundant from her job, decides to record a true-crime podcast. All she needs is a story.

When Elaine stumbles upon the five-year-old cold case of Katrin, she begins an investigation that will quickly become a fixation.

After an early breakthrough, Elaine’s investigation leads her to Hannibal Heights, an apartment building that Katrin helped to design. The building is home to a sinister taxidermy museum, a host of intriguing residents, and more than its share of secrets.

But despite the obvious danger, Elaine’s obsession continues to grow.

As her investigation threatens to spiral out of control, Napier receives threats and police pressure to shut the broadcast down.

Can Elaine solve the mystery and keep her own sense of right and wrong intact?

Or will the shocking truth distort everything Elaine holds dear?

Jon Richter is also the author of the crime thriller Never Rest. Rabbit Hole is a gripping mystery thriller full of twists and turns. If you are fan of authors like Lucy Foley, Alex Michaelides and James Patterson, then you'll love this unmissable thriller.

Rating: 10 out of 10.
Rating Report
Plot/Narrative

This honestly was such an interesting thriller. Elaine Napier is an ex-journalist who now runs a true-crime podcast - The Frozen Files trying to solve the murder of Icelandic Katrin Gunnarsdottir. She works alongside Isacc who edits and does the technical side of the Podcast.

The plot was so interesting and realistic and I love that the story is told via The Frozen Files and through Elaine's own investigation with the help from a private investigator who develops into a friend. It is an action-packed, fascinating crime thriller with a unique unusual twist.

9 stars
Characters

All the characters were sharp, distinctive and credible and very well written indeed.

I loved the character of Elaine Napier. She is one determined and feisty characters with her own past to bare, that of her missing/murdered sister, Sam plus her own personal demons as well. She is def

My favourite though has to be a private investigator. He seems like your typical private investigator those that instantly pop into your head, but this is also mentioned in a funny way throughout. He was employed by Katrin's father.

Isaac is so very sweet and is definitely a nice and helpful friend in Elaine's life.

9.5 stars
Writing Style/Pacing

Jon's writing is remarkable and he has brought a modern and unique twist into this book in the form of the podcast and how Elaine's investigation is told in its entirety through recorded interviews, what clues she finds out etc.
Also told throughout the book are snapshots of her past and discovery of her big sister, Sam's murder.

The end of this book was a surprising belter. Each chapter surprises us with a new suspect and a few twists and turns plus each of them ends on a cliffhanger leaving us wanting more and more. It's definitely a page-turner and hooks you from beginning to end while also being steadily paced.
