I absolutely cannot wait to see where Robotham takes them. I want to know more about Evie's captivity and the murder of young Cyrus's family. (In fact, I'm unexpectedly impatient about both already. I want more. Now!) ―

Suspenseful, twisted and just brilliant! I could not put this down. Loved Loved Loved!

????
Review: Cyrus Haven is a forensic psychologist and he has been called on to help investigate the murder of a school girl and champion figure skater, Jodie Sheehan. Meanwhile, he is asked to talk to a patient of a children's home, Evie, to see if she is ready to be released. Evie's case is a complex one, as she was discovered in a house in traumatic circumstances and no one knew where she came from or who she was. So her age cannot be identified. And, she has a special gift. The stories intersect, with Cyrus also battling his own demons from his childhood while he helps to solve the crime.

I loved the complex characters Robotham weaves in this clever and suspenseful novel and I am so excited that it is the beginning of a new series. The writing was flawless and I enjoyed the many twists, which kept me captivated the whole way through. 5??

Thank you to @hachetteaus and @michaelrobotham for this gifted copy in exchange for my honest review.

Great characters and fine writing lift this above the usual crime fare. ―
ACT [PRINT] Canberra Weekly

It is easy to see why Robotham is a bestselling author. His complex and clever narratives flow quickly, his characters are flawed and dark and the suspense is incredible. Readers will be happy to see future books starring Cyrus Haven and may hope to see Evie and Lenny as well. ―
ReadPlus Blog

Good Girl Bad Girl engages quickly and flows throughout. It's a real pageturner, with the whodunnit of the murder bolstered by intrigue in relation to a variety of character secrets. Overall this is yet another example that Robotham is an accomplished storyteller who knows how to draw readers in, hold their attention, and deliver an absorbing psychological thriller. ―
