Description

‘A tremendous read’ - The Sun

Now optioned for a major movie by the company behind Winter’s Bone, Babel, Being John Malkovich and the TV series True Detective.

A compulsive debut that reveals how, even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems…

I've been following her for the past few days. I know where she buys her groceries, where she has her dry cleaning done, where she works. I don't know the colour of her eyes or what they look like when they're scared. But I will.

Mia Dennett can't resist a one-night stand with the enigmatic stranger she meets in a bar.

But going home with him might turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life…

<H2>Praise for The Good Girl</H2>

<b>Selected as one of the Top Ten General Fiction Books of 2014 by thebookbag.co.uk</b>

‘A sensational climax seals the deal’ ‘I hesitate to use that terrible cliché ‘page-turner’, but this powerful debut thriller is just that. It grabs you from the moment it starts’ – <i>Daily Mail</i>

'One of the trickiest, cleverest, most rewarding human interest crime tales of this year.' – <i>Top 100 Amazon reviewer Katharine Kirby</i>

'Kubica’s powerful debut will encourage comparisons to Gone Girl…[but] this girl has heart' – <i>Publishers Weekly starred review</i>

'A twisty, roller coaster ride of a debut. Fans of Gone Girl will embrace this equally evocative tale' – <i>Lisa Gardner</i>

‘Memorable and riveting’ – <i>Lovereading.co.uk</i>

‘As a debut, this is a stunning, well-written novel – Kubica is an author to watch.’ – <i>We Love This Book</i>

'This psychological thriller gets right under your skin and leaves its mark. A tremendous read’ – <i>The Sun</i>

‘A complex tale of deceit, jealousy, fear and love played out against the bustling, bright lights of Chicago … a stunning debut’ – <i>Crimethrillergirl.com</i>

‘If you love a dark mystery, The Good Girl will keep you entranced from the very first page to the end. Likened to the bestselling Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, this psychological thriller looks set to be a blockbuster – and it’s only Kubica’s first novel! … I can’t wait for more from this talented writer’ – <i>Peterborough Evening Telegraph</i>

    Different concept from all the “girl on the train” style books. It’s been sitting in my iBooks folder for ages and I wish I’d read it sooner. Highly recommend.

    I cannot begin to describe how emotional I was by the end of this book. I sat down to read it on Wednesday morning and finished it Thursday night. Unbelievable twists that had me so hooked and believing that I was watching this whole story unfold in real life. Speechless. Absolutely a stunning read!

    Really unsure about this book. Struggled to get into it. took me a month to read where as id normally read a book in a few days. Wouldnt really recommend it.

    I found this book quite predictable, though well written. I saw the twist coming and so it didn't have as much impact as I assume it was intended to. Important note: it would also have been better without the casual racism. Black people are treated as synonymous with poverty and crime, not just by one character (which could be a character flaw) but by everyone and thus, I assume, by the writer herself. IMO the editor should have cut those telling little asides and descriptors with a ruthless hand.

    The film "A Life Less Ordinary” has almost the same plot so the denouement is predictable to anyone who has seen it. The mangling of the English laguage with incongruous vocabulary make some sentences incomprehensible. Mawkish and over priced at “free”.
  • I loved this book.
