Publisher's Summary

The girl with no past.

Six years ago, Evie Cormac was discovered, filthy and half starved, hiding in a secret room in the aftermath of a shocking crime. Now approaching adulthood, Evie is damaged and self-destructive and has never revealed her true identity.  

The boy who survived. 

Forensic psychologist Cyrus Haven, a man haunted by his own past, is investigating the death of champion figure skater Jodie Sheehan. When Cyrus is called upon to assess Evie, she threatens to disrupt the case and destroy his ordered life. Because Evie has a unique and dangerous gift - she knows when some is lying. And nobody is telling the truth. 

Good Girl, Bad Girl is an unnerving psychological thriller from one of the greatest crime writers of today, Michael Robotham, best-selling author of The Other Wife and The Secrets She Keeps.

BRILLIANT!!

Great new characters and brilliant new narrator, I kept forgetting it was just the one reader, every character sounded completely different, best reading I've ever heard (although I do love listening to Joe O'Loughlin read by Sean Barrett)!
Michael Robotham writes in a way which makes you just want to keep reading/listening! You know you've loved a book when you miss the characters and can't wait to meet them again!

He's done it again

I can't believe that Micahel Robotham has been able to hook me in again, but it's true, he has. Cyrus Haven is my new crush. Buy and read you won't be disappointed.

Mediocre

Every exchange is along the lines of:
“We need to know things”
“I’m not telling you anything”
“Why did x happen”
“Okay I’ll tell you everything”

Pointless main characters.

Outstanding! Brilliant! Welcome Cyrus and Evie.

The door is wide open for a surrogate Joe O'Loughlin to enthrall us with his incredible thinking. Any serious reader would struggle to give this less than 5 stars. Nothing is perfect. This is as near as you get for enthralling reading. Joe Jameson's narration is deserving of an Oscar.

Loved it

I was sad when I realised the end chapters were coming, as I know I will have to wait until the author releases another book. I have read or listened to every single book by this author and I have given 5 stars for every single one. I hope that this is the start of a series I loved the two main characters and can’t wait to see what happens to them in the future if there is a follow up book. Highly recommend this book. I waited in long anticipation for the release date on this book and I wasn’t disappointed. Will be a long wait till the next one!

Good book

I have been waiting for this read for ages. And it’s not a disappointment it’s a great read. Terrific characters and a romping story. The reader also was great. I love Michael Robothams stories they get better and better.

Unusual story with intriguing background. There are unresolved issues so I hope there is a sequel to this book.

Marvellously interwoven threads of plot!

Another fantastic stand - alone novel from Mr Robotham, ( but with the tiniest of nods to Joseph O'Loughlin at the end to ensure avid readers know that he still resides in the author's mind.)
A great read all round: I definitely recommend the novel to any fan of this genre, whether or not you've enjoyed Michael Robotham before, because they get better and better each time.

Twists and turns

Wow, a page turner and Michael Robotham’s new character doesn’t disappoint.
A true physiological thriller, his insight into the subject is inspiring and used to its best advantage. AAA *
There are many reviews giving you the plot, therefore the above will suffice.

Absolutely first rate

As you'd expect from Michael Robotham - a good plot with main characters that you care about. Surely we are going to hear more of Sirius and Evie. I certainly hope so. Joe Jameson, a new narrator for me, was absolutely up to the mark.

Best Robotham for a long time!

Great story, involving two damaged individuals, psychiatrist and teenager, coming together amidst murder and mayhem. Very well read. Not sure that the ending tied up all the strands in a neat bow, which could mean more from these characters, or, like the Joe O’Loughlin stories, more from just our psych. Don’t lose the spiky girl with uncanny intuition though, she’s too good!

Robotham at his best

Been looking for a good read and been a little disappointed with some of the new books around then I found this. Riveting story. Excellent narration. Guessing an awful lot of research done by Michael for the settings of the story. A powerful story.

Good read from Robotham but not as good as others

If I am honest the lead character didn’t get to me like him as much as Jospeh Oloughlin. However I enjoyed the storyline and and the premise.

I suspect there will be a book two, of so, the main character needs some depth to him. A good read, not one of the authors better books.

I am still unsure about the narrator...

Well worth a listen!

Slow start which was not particularly inspiring and the narration was not very inspiring either BUT it did get better as the characters developed. So much so, that the narrator overall did an excellent job and I found the story very moving although quite disturbing at times and a real insight into this side of life as well as the psychology. As a big Michael Robotham fan, I missed the Joseph O'Loughlin character, but he did get a mention at the end and Cyrus is coming on well!
