Ten years ago, four people were brutally murdered. One girl lived.

No one believes her story.
The police think she’s crazy.
Her therapist thinks she’s suicidal.
Everyone else thinks she’s a dangerous drunk.
They’re all right—but did she see the killer?

As the anniversary of the murders approaches, Faith Winters is released from the psychiatric hospital and yanked back to the last spot on earth she wants to be—her hometown where the slayings took place. Wracked by the lingering echoes of survivor’s guilt, Faith spirals into a black hole of alcoholism and wanton self-destruction. Finding no solace at the bottom of a bottle, Faith decides to track down her sister’s killer—and then discovers that she’s the one being hunted.

How can one woman uncover the truth when everyone’s a suspect—including herself?

From the mind of Wall Street Journal bestselling author Christopher Greyson comes a story with twists and turns that take the reader on a journey of light and dark, good and evil, to the edge of madness. The Girl Who Lived should come with a warning label: Once you start reading, you won’t be able to stop. Not since Girl on the Train and Gone Girl has a psychological thriller kept readers so addicted—and guessing right until the last page.

Angie’s Thoughts:

Faith Winters goes through what no child should ever go through. She witnesses the brutal death of her sister. She runs for her life but the consequences were the deaths of her father, best friend and her best friend’s mom.

She was the only survivor from that tragic night that lands her in a psychiatric hospital. Fast forward 10 years and it’s the anniversary of the deaths of those she loved. What does Faith do? Track down the person who she thinks has done it.

The Girl Who Lived starts out slow but it picks up quickly and before you know it you’re done. Wondering exactly what you just read. I think one character was unnecessary and once you read it you’ll understand or maybe you won’t. Some of the issues were glossed over and I really hope that readers who think books are “real” don’t take some of them by heart. Other than that I really did enjoy it.

The Verdict:

About Christopher Greyson

My name is Christopher Greyson, and I am a storyteller.

Since I was a little boy, I have dreamt of what mystery was around the next corner, or what quest lay over the hill. If I couldn’t find an adventure, one usually found me, and now I weave those tales into my stories. I am blessed to have written the bestselling Detective Jack Stratton Mystery-Thriller Series. The collection includes And Then She Was Gone, Girl Jacked, Jack Knifed, Jacks Are Wild, Jack and the Giant Killer, Data Jack and Jack of Hearts. My latest novel is the psychological thriller, The Girl Who Lived.
