Publisher's Summary

10 years ago, four people were brutally murdered. One girl lived.

No one believes her story. The police think she’s crazy. Her therapist thinks she’s suicidal. Everyone else thinks she’s a dangerous drunk. They’re all right - but did she see the killer?

As the anniversary of the murders approaches, Faith Winters is released from the psychiatric hospital and yanked back to the last spot on earth she wants to be - her hometown where the slayings took place. Wracked by the lingering echoes of survivor’s guilt, Faith spirals into a black hole of alcoholism and wanton self-destruction. Finding no solace at the bottom of a bottle, Faith decides to track down her sister’s killer - and then discovers that she’s the one being hunted.

How can one woman uncover the truth when everyone’s a suspect - including herself?

From the mind of Wall Street Journal best-selling author Christopher Greyson comes a story with twists and turns that take the listener on a journey of light and dark, good and evil, to the edge of madness. The Girl Who Lived should come with a warning label: Once you start listening, you won’t be able to stop. Not since Girl on the Train and Gone Girl has a psychological thriller kept listeners so addicted - and guessing right until the last minute.

Who do you trust when you trust no one?

I want to thank Audible reviewer Wayne for pointing me to this book, I totally missed this one!
I thought this was a very good book. Completely different from the Jack Stratton novels which are fast and fun. This book is a little more serious. I wouldn't say more complex but I wouldn't call it fun. Definitely fast paced with a wide variety of murder suspects. By the time I got to the end I had kind of guessed who done it but was still a little surprised when that person was confirmed. All of the loose ends were not neatly tied up but I guess the author leaves that up to the listeners imagination, unless he intends to write another.
Amy McFadden did a wonderful job narrating. Her voice fit the main character perfectly.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Excellent psychological thriller, but it...

...is not quite as good as either any of the 7 novel Jack Stratton modern detective series by the same author (Christopher Greyson) or the psychological thriller I reviewed last night (Killman Creek by Rachel Caine). There is a plot twist at the end of the Girl Who Lived that is so stunning that I must rate the novel 5 stars.

The Girl Who Lived is about 23 year old Faith Winters who has been in and out of mental hospitals during the 10 years since her dad supposedly killed her older sister and then killed himself as Faith escaped. Faith's mother, a psychologist, was not present at the time. Faith is convinced that a rat-faced man she believes she saw at the scene is the real killer. Amy McFadden's narration is first rate. I recommend this Christopher Greyson psychological thriller, but my recommendation is even stronger for Greyson's seven novel fun Detective Jack Stratton suspense mystery series which should be read in order beginning with Girl Jacked.

Absolutely Superior

One of the more cleverly wrought thrillers you’ll read... Wonderful pacing and use of bread crumbing, not to mention the gas lighting... Narrative voice and mood lends to a constant feeling of jangly nerves... Psychological tension is intense and practically seamless... The therapy components are delightfully different from average fare... Survivors throughout, only out numbered by the suspects;). The build up approaches freight train quality, especially the last third or so... You’ll find yourself constantly flip flopping back and forth on who you are convinced the culprit/s are, even though you’ll have all the clues you need... Couldn’t put it down, and upon finishing remarked out loud “now, that’s an awesome book!” Great character development and narration, and the resolution/payoff w/ everything else make it nothing less than a 5* selection...

Entertaining and worthwhile

I really enjoyed this book. I found myself guessing the ending and really looking forward to my hour commutes to and from work so I could listen.
I found the main character slightly annoying, I wanted to shake her and say, “Get it together girl!” But all in all I enjoyed the story and did not predict the ending! Would listen to again.

very enjoyable

I really enjoyed this suspense story I had my mind going... is this the guy... or that guy.. oh. maybe this guy!. there was clues along the way. but by the finale you weren't sure which clue to trust. fantastic! and as always, Amy McFadden performance brilliant. I got the book because she was the one reading, so it was amazing the book was just as good.

good story...bad reader

Big fan of Christopher Greyson. This one is probably just as good his others but the reader sounds like a teenage girl that has no empathy as to the story she is reading. Couldn't finish it just took it out of my library.

Whiny Alcoholic Millenial Runs from Serial Killer

I stopped listening when I began rooting for the serial killer. This self-absorbed ninny is unpleasant, and none of the other characters are worthwhile, either. The wording is somewhat childish (like her nickname for the serial killer, which is "Rat Face"). If someone can make it through this, they're either vastly more patient or mentally impaired.
