This taut, well-written thriller explores domestic violence and family bonds ... and the conclusion is shocking and wonderfully satisfying. The story is told from multiple characters' perspectives, and is an insight into complicated relationships and the myriad reasons people choose one another. I hope Macmillan can be persuaded to write a sequel. * New Zealand Women's Weekly * With lovely prose, depth of character and an intelligent narrative, Macmillan lifts the level of suspense with stiletto-like precision: a tiny graze here, a shallow cut there and, eventually, a thrust into the heart. Profoundly unsettling and richly rewarding. * Richmond Times * With tightly drawn characters, a fascinating storyline and absolutely exquisite narration, The Perfect Girl is sure to keep readers up all night. Gilly Macmillan proves once again to be a master of the written word and is quickly becoming one of my go-to authors.
