4 stars for this stellar thriller This is by far one of the best psychological thrillers that I have read all year It has a complicated, twisty plot that will keep you guessing up until the very last pages There are a multitude of characters that all have secrets The characters are well developed and unique, yet, for the most part, still believable There are many mysteries to solve and characters to unveil I ve never read this author before but this book was highly recommended by my Goodreads friends Cyrus Haven is a forensic pathologist, who had an incredibly troubled past as a child He has found his niche in helping with extremely damaged, disturbed individuals He drives a run down car and lives in a large, once beautiful, home which he has inherited He has neither the time nor the money to do the repairs necessary to bring it back to its glory days but he seems happy here In this novel he is working on two cases concurrently One involves the murder of a high school student, Jodie, who is a well known, world class ice skating champion She is her family s golden girl whom they feel will surely compete at the Olympic level She was popular, pretty and well liked by her classmates The other case involves his evaluation of an extremely troubled young woman, called Ev
Cyrus Haven is a forensic psychologist who consults for the police He has been asked to determine whether a young woman, a human lie detector named Evie Cormac , can handle being released from institutionalized care into society Evie has a harrowing past and was instantly made famous after being rescued from horrific circumstances six years earlier Having no idea who she is, authorities gave her a new identity, hid her from the public and placed her in care Cyrus is also consulting on a disturbing murder case a 15 year old promising figure skater is found dead and the pool of suspects is huge The inters
It doesn t happen often that I award 5 stars in a row but Good Girl, Bad Girl was absolutely brilliant and definitely deserves all the stars This was only my second book by Michael Robotham but I can say that his writing style is right up my street I find that even thrillers I really like often have dull passages I want to skim through, but that was NOT the case here Good Girl Bad Girl was a riveting and totally compulsive read from start to finish The characters are interesting and unusual and yet believable and likeable The plot is multilayered and cleverly intertwines two different stories making this book to stand out in the sea of thrillers and crime fiction in the market
3.5 stars rounded down Once again, the book s synopsis sounds to me like it was the author s elevator pitch, which didn t quite turn out exactly the same, once the book was fleshed outEvie Cormac dubbed, Angel Face by the press, when she was discovered as a victim of an unthinkable crime, six years ago has initiated a court proceeding, demanding the right to be released from the children s home where she has been living, now that she has turned eighteen Cyrus Haven, a forensic psychologist with a tragic past of his own, must determine if Evie could survive on her own, if granted her freedom When he first meets Evie, she will only answer questions posed to her, using the lyrics from popular songs But, he is fascinated by her, because of the special ability she has of knowing when people are lying a subject he wrote his thesis on Cyrus is also a consultant on a current case, involving the murder of pretty and popular, High school figure skating champion, Jodie Sheehan How the stories of these two very different girls intersect, is the crux of the book The STRENGTH of this novel for me was the relationship that Cyrus forms with Evie, though he MAY have earned her trust, a bit quickly But then again, if she can sniff out a lie then she could probably read that he was sincere in his desire to help her
