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.

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.

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!

Wonderfully unpredictable!

Such a fascinating, fast-paced novel, I raced through this! My only disappointment is that I have to wait to read the next book in the series! Bring it on, please!!

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.

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.

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!

some sweeping bias by gripping listen

some bias, clichés and stereotypes but interesting listen and great performance. Narrators tone and alteration of voice for each character was well done. story was a page turner, though not an intellectual novel.

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.

A worthwhile whodunnit story

So it's a typical Michael Robotham saga characterised by clues leading you off and on the beaten track ending up being the least likely person to have done it. However, the story is always worth sticking to You can't really stop listening and, somewhat surprisingly, I rather liked Jo Jameson's laconic narration which successfully negotiated many personas including the many female characters. In fact, I would say he significantly added to the books interest. Not a literary piece but a worthwhile read and I was most content to tune in almost anytime without losing track of where I was,

An interesting and promising start to a new series

An interesting and promising start to a new series from Michael Robotham. The series features a forensic psychologist called Cyrus Haven, a man who is haunted by the childhood experience of finding his family gruesomely murdered by his own brother. While investigating the death of a champion figure skater, Cyrus becomes involved with a gifted but damaged teenager with traumatic experiences of her own. Michael Robotham has produced another well crafted book with well developed characters, plots and back stories interwoven with regular twists and turns that will have you constantly readjusting the way you understand the story and characters. If you like this author don't miss this book, the narration by Joe Jameson was a bit average, but the book still went into the top tier of my library.

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.

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.

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.

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...

One of the Worst!

I forced myself to listen to this because I had returned two books that were excellent, but too violent, and this had good reviews. What a mistake and waste of a credit! The narration was terrible, and the voices given to some characters so terrible it made them fairly detestable so that it wasn't possible to be sympathetic towards them. The narrator himself has a nice voice, so why didn't he use it? Why distort it to make people sound idiotic?
The story was weak, one of the main protagonists, the psychologist, could hardly string an intelligent sentence together and would a young man hoping to study law at a leading university be incapable of any articulate speech beyond a few grumps?
I will go back to some classics now. Fed up of mediocre plots and bad writing.

Without being too insulting to the narrator, you can’t do female voices

Oh my goodness, I cannot listen to the narrator anymore, returned!
Please don’t put on voices like this.

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!
