Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Secrets She Keeps, the writer Stephen King calls “an absolute master...with heart and soul”, a fiendishly clever suspense novel about a dangerous young woman with a special ability to know when someone is lying - and the criminal psychologist who must outwit her to survive.

A girl is found hiding in a secret room in a house being renovated after a terrible crime. For weeks, she has survived by sneaking out at night, stealing food for herself and two dogs that are kept in the garden. The nurses at the hospital where she is taken call her “Angel Face” because she won’t tell anyone her name, or her age, or where she came from. Maybe she is 12, maybe 15, or somewhere in between. She doesn’t appear on any missing person’s file, or match the DNA of any murder victim.

Six years later, still unidentified, the same girl is living in a secure children’s home with a new name, Evie Cormac, when she initiates a court case demanding the right to be released as an adult. Psychologist Cyrus Haven is sent to interview Evie and decide if she’s ready to go free, but Evie Cormac is unlike he’s anyone he’s ever met. She’s damaged, destructive, and self-hating, yet possessed of a gift, or a curse, that makes her both fascinating and dangerous to be with - the ability to tell when someone is lying. Soon, he is embroiled in her unique and dangerous world, his life in utmost peril.

Cleverly constructed, swiftly paced, and emotionally explosive, Good Girl, Bad Girl is the perfect thrilling summer listen from the internationally best-selling author David Baldacci called “the real deal”.

DESPITE THE TITLE ....

Unique story and outstanding narrator make this audiobook very much worth using a book credit on or buying it if you have no credit. Kudos to everyone involved with production of the audiobook except for whoever gave final approval for the title -- the author and book deserved better. I almost didn't get the book because I'm truly tired of all the "girl" books.

Interesting and entertaining story and characters

I thoroughly enjoyed the story - on par with the Joseph O'Loughlin series. Narration was excellent. Remarkable job on the female characters. Also, having just listened to a book with poor sound editing, I appreciated the high quality of sound engineering in this audiobook.

Great Book, Great Book.

I have read/heard all of Robotham's books and thought all but perhaps one were excellent. This is in my top three of his, if not my favorite now. As much as I've enjoyed Joe O'Loughlin, I may like Cyrus as much or more. The interaction between Evie and him is so well written and the story flows and twists so well. I'm going to try to avoid risky situations so I live to see the next book released.

A different kind of Robotham

Not what I’m used to reading from Robotham but thoroughly enjoyable. I’m very picky about what I read but am a big fan of his. When I saw this was available for pre-order I immediately did and couldn’t wait to listen.

A STORY ABOUT A GIRL THAT YOU’LL NEVER ACTUALLY HEAR!!

I listened to that whole book just to get THAT ending?!? If you aren’t going to tell us what happened to the girl in her past, why have the girl at all?!? The whole book could have been written without that character at all. I’ve never read a mystery that ended without telling you what the mystery was — nevermind resolve it. This isn’t just a book without a resolution - I get why authors do that — but this was a story about a girl but you never get to know her story. I feel cheated and I wish I could get those hours back. I’m just glad the narrator was great and the second storyline (not about the girl) was good. Disappointed.

Did not disappoint!

Michael Robotham hit it out of the park again! Love Dr Haven and can’t wait for another novel. This book really kept me engaged and I found myself hurrying through work so I could continue listening. I’ve read all Michael Robotham’s novels and they are all great reads or listens!
