The Good Girl – Mary Kubica

thegoodgirl

 

To be published in August 2014

‘I’ve been following her for the past few days. I know where she buys her groceries, where she has her dry cleaning done, where she works. I don’t know the colour of her eyes or what they look like when they’re scared. But I will.’

Mia Dennett can’t resist a one-night stand with the enigmatic stranger she meets in a bar. But going home with him might turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia’s life…

An addictively suspenseful and tautly written thriller, The Good Girl is a compulsive debut that reveals how, even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems…

My thoughts

Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for the review copy of this book.

What a clever read. A kidnapping story with a twist or two. I loved how we got the different perspectives of the mother, the kidnapper and the police officer throughout. It’s an exciting way to tell a story, as the narrative moves from one character to another. And Mia, the kidnapping victim is mostly silent and remote. We don’t know what she is really thinking. It is strange that we hear so little from her, that we empathize more with the kidnapper, Colin. Really worth a read!!!
