"A twisty, roller coaster ride of a debut. Fans of Gone Girl will embrace this equally evocative tale." --Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"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."

One night, Mia Dennett enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. At first Colin Thatcher seems like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.

When Colin decides to hide Mia in a secluded cabin in rural Minnesota instead of delivering her to his employers, 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 propulsive debut that reveals how even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems.

Review quote

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

-Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Kubica's powerful debut...will encourage comparisons to Gone Girl. -Publishers Weekly, starred review

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, bestselling author of The Weight of Silence and Little Mercies

[Kubica's] masterful handling of plot makes The Good Girl hard to put down.

-The Columbus Dispatch

The Good Girl has everything going for it. A fresh new style...the denouement will stun. I look forward to Kubica's next novel.
-Florida Times-Union

A cleverly constructed suspense thriller.
-Chicago Tribune, Printer's Row

The Good Girl provides a very good mystery.
-Minneapolis Star Tribune

A high-intensity thriller, a psychological puzzle that will keep readers on their toes.

Mary Kubica's The Good Girl will surely captivate.
-Chicago Book Review

There are lots of twists and turns in this novel, but I really didn't see the last one coming. Its comparisons to Gone Girl and The Silent Wife are deserved.
