The Good Girl

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: July 2014

Duration: 10 hours 40 minutes

Summary:

“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 color of her eyes or what they look like when she’s scared. But I will.”

Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn’t show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia’s life.

Colin’s job was to abduct Mia as part of a wild extortion plot and deliver her to his employers. But the plan takes an unexpected turn when Colin suddenly decides to hide Mia in a secluded cabin in rural Minnesota, evading the police and his deadly superiors. Mia’s mother, Eve, and Detective Gabe Hoffman will stop at nothing to find them, but no one could have predicted the emotional entanglements that eventually cause this family’s world to shatter.

An addictively suspenseful and tautly written thriller, The Good Girl is a compulsive debut that reveals how, even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems.

“Psychologically rich and pulse pounding, The Good Girl had me hooked from the very first sentence and didn’t let go until the final word.”—Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author

  • Pam B.

    Hooked from the very first chapter. A great story, loved the way the story unfolded using before and after the disappearance snapshots.

  • K A H

    A fabulous book with twisty plot line. So much better than the movie which did inspire me to read the book. The author has just enough detail to keep you engaged while not leaving you mired in detail. Recommended for drives or commutes - not a beach or cruise read. Hope you Enjoy this book experience

    Although I found some of the prose a bit cliche I loved the story and the characters and was very involved and emotionally drained by the end - a great read (listen)
