Publisher 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…


Praise for The Good Girl

Selected as one of the Top Ten General Fiction Books of 2014 by

‘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’ – Daily Mail

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

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

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

‘Memorable and riveting’ –

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

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

‘A complex tale of deceit, jealousy, fear and love played out against the bustling, bright lights of Chicago … a stunning debut’ –

‘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’ – Peterborough Evening Telegraph

Good girl good book

Loved the style of storytelling and was gripped from beginning to end. Well worth a read

Timothy Trotter ,

It’s been done before

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”.

Heatherbed ,

Surprisingly good

I downloaded this book free of charge and wasn't convinced I would like it. I thought as it was free I'd give it a go. A third of the way in I'm finding it difficult to put down and when I'm not reading it I'm constantly wanting to get back to it. This is a well written story with a cunning twist which I didn't see coming. Highly recommended as an easy, engrossing holiday read.
