From the award-winning author of Wonder Valley and Visitation Street comes a serial killer story like you’ve never seen before—a literary thriller of female empowerment and social change In West Adams, a rapidly changing part of South Los Angeles, they’re referred to as “these women.” These women on the corner … These women in the club … These women who won’t stop asking questions … These women who got what they deserved … 

In her masterful new novel, Ivy Pochoda creates a kaleidoscope of loss, power, and hope featuring five very different women whose lives are steeped in danger and anguish. They’re connected by one man and his deadly obsession, though not all of them know that yet. There’s Dorian, still adrift after her daughter’s murder remains unsolved; Julianna, a young dancer nicknamed Jujubee, who lives hard and fast, resisting anyone trying to slow her down; Essie, a brilliant vice cop who sees a crime pattern emerging where no one else does; Marella, a daring performance artist whose work has long pushed boundaries but now puts her in peril; and Anneke, a quiet woman who has turned a willfully blind eye to those around her for far too long.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"These Women is full of resilient and undaunted characters… the small story that grows so large in meaning and emotion as to transcend genre. It tells us how to look at ourselves and at what is important.” Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author
“Pochoda’s deeply felt thriller unfolds through the overlapping perspectives of five women, whose voices sizzle and sparkle as their histories emerge.” New York Times Book Review
“ Paints a kaleidoscopic portrait of a hard-scrabble community beset by difficulties but not yet ready to give up, on either life or seeking vengeance.” Crime Reads
“This deep dive into the lives of women too often unseen in the shadows makes them vividly unforgettable.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Pochoda stuns with this disquieting literary thriller rife with descriptive street language and violence. It is complex, intense, and enthralling.” Library Journal (starred review)
