Review: The Girl Who Lived

36412584Title: The Girl Who Lived
Author: Christopher Greyson
329 pages, published November 4, 2017

Note: I received this book from the publisher via Netgalley to facilitate my review. I received no other compensation, and all opinions are my own.

From Goodreads:

Ten years ago, four people were brutally murdered. One girl lived. No one believes her story.
The police think she’s crazy.
Her therapist thinks she’s suicidal.
Everyone else thinks she’s a dangerous drunk.
They’re all right—but did she see the killer?

As the anniversary of the murders approaches, Faith Winters is released from the psychiatric hospital and yanked back to the last spot on earth she wants to be—her hometown where the slayings took place. Wracked by the lingering echoes of survivor’s guilt, Faith spirals into a black hole of alcoholism and wanton self-destruction. Finding no solace at the bottom of a bottle, Faith decides to track down her sister’s killer—and then discovers that she’s the one being hunted.

How can one woman uncover the truth when everyone’s a suspect—including herself?


This book hooked me from the first chapter!! This is my first time reading a book by this author and I absolutely loved the writing style and could not put the book down. The book kept me guessing until the very end and was full of twists and surprises. Who can Faith trust? What is real? Can I as the reader even believe Faith? I don't read a lot of thrillers because I don't like a lot of violence, but psychological thrillers like this one always suck me in. This was one of the best psychological thrillers I've read in a long time--if you like the genre this is one not to miss!
 
Happy Reading!
