Good Girl, Bad Girl? Which one is Evie?
Evie is known in the press as Angel Face. As a young girl, she is found in a hidden room with a man long dead after being tortured. Evie claims to not remember anything from her former life—not even her name or age.
Cyrus is a police psychologist. He is also the survivor of the brutal murder of his family by his older brother. He volunteers to help Evie get out of her group home. In the meantime, Cyrus is working the case of a young ice skater, assaulted and killed on a dark public path on Guy Fawkes Night.
A slow simmer of a novel, Good Girl, Bad Girl has a multitude of plot threads. All are expertly wound up by the conclusion. Both Cyrus and Evie are unusual characters that you want the best for but fear the worst. The thrilling ending is the best of 2019 so far. 4 stars!
Thanks to Scribner and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
