Goodreads rating: 4.33 - 4181 ratings
My rating: 5
Setting: Contemporary Nottingham/Manchester, England
First line/s: "Late spring. Morning cold. A small wooden boat emerges from the mist, sliding forward with each pull of the oars."
What I posted on Goodreads: Part two in a 2-part mystery, finished quite satisfactorily. Great narration, wonderful mystery.
My comments: Part two, finishing a story begun in a prior book (Good Girl, Bad Girl) quite satisfactorily. I enjoyed the way it flip-flops between the two man characters, a forensic psychiatrist and an 18-year-old girl who has been abused and/or on the run for most of her remembered life. The setting of Nottingham/Manchester, England and the perfectly accented and accentuated male reader enhanced my reading experience. Plot, setting, characterization, and narration worked perfectly together in this excellent mystery.
Goodreads synopsis: Criminal psychologist Cyrus Haven and Evie Cormac return in this new thriller from author Michael Robotham. Who is Evie, the girl with no past, running from? She was discovered hiding in a secret room in the aftermath of a terrible crime. Her ability to tell when someone is lying helped Cyrus crack an impenetrable case in Good Girl, Bad Girl. Now, the closer Cyrus gets to uncovering answers about Evie’s dark history, the more he exposes Evie to danger, giving her no choice but to run. Ultimately, both will have to decide if some secrets are better left buried and some monsters should never be named...
