A fiendishly clever suspense novel about a dangerous young woman with a special ability to know when someone is lying—and the criminal psychologist who must outwit her to survive.
A girl is discovered hiding in a secret room in the aftermath of a terrible crime. Half-starved and filthy, she won’t tell anyone her name, or her age, or where she came from. Maybe she is twelve, maybe fifteen. She doesn’t appear in any missing persons file, and her DNA can’t be matched to an identity. Six years later, still unidentified, she is living in a secure children’s home with a new name, Evie Cormac. When she initiates a court case demanding the right to be released as an adult, forensic psychologist Cyrus Haven must determine if Evie is ready to go free. But she is unlike anyone he’s ever met—fascinating and dangerous in equal measure. Evie knows when someone is lying, and no one around her is telling the truth.
Meanwhile, Cyrus is called in to investigate the shocking murder of a high school figure-skating champion, Jodie Sheehan, who dies on a lonely footpath close to her home. Pretty and popular, Jodie is portrayed by everyone as the ultimate girl-next-door, but as Cyrus peels back the layers, a secret life emerges—one that Evie Cormac, the girl with no past, knows something about.
A man haunted by his own tragic history, Cyrus is caught between the two cases—one girl who needs saving and another who needs justice. What price will he pay for the truth? Fiendishly clever, swiftly paced, and emotionally explosive, Good Girl, Bad Girl is the perfect thrilling read from internationally bestselling author Michael Robotham.
Dit was die vyftiende jaar van ekonokrasie. Vyftien jaar nadat ons ons demokrasie vir die Korporasie verruil het. Die politiek is geprivatiseer. Nes ons polisiediens en hospitale, dekades vroeŽr. Danksy tegnologie, die stygende reŽnval, die veranderende klimaat, kon die land aan derduisende yskoue, dankbare Amerikaners en Kanadese blyplek bied. Vir beide die aankomelinge ťn die gevestigde inwoners het voorspoed en ’n beter lewe aangebreek.
So het ons geglo, of so is aan ons vertel. Maar nou leer ek ’n nuwe taal. Die taal van onthou. En dit maak my gevaarlik.
Wanneer ’n mediese dokter die aandag van die Sentinels trek, moet hy deur ’n verwoeste landskap vlug. In ’n wÍreld waar ’n skynson lig verskaf, raak hy ’n pion in ’n komplot waarvan hy onbewus is. Selfs die verdwyning van sy kind tydens die chaos en die kosopstande voor die Wending kon hom nie hierop voorberei nie.
In ’n land sonder voŽls is ’n verdoemende ondersoek na die impak van ’n totalitÍre bestel en een man se besinning oor sterflikheid en dŪt wat ons mense maak.

A compelling and chilling suspense novel, which will delight all readers of King's bestselling Hodges Trilogy.
When an eleven-year-old boy is found murdered in a town park, reliable eyewitnesses undeniably point to the town's popular Little League coach, Terry Maitland, as the culprit. DNA evidence and fingerprints confirm the crime was committed by this well-loved family man. Horrified by the brutal killing, Detective Ralph Anderson, whose own son was once coached by Maitland, orders the suspect to be arrested in a public spectacle. But Maitland has an alibi. And further research confirms he was indeed out of town that day.
As Anderson and the District Attorney trace the clues, the investigation expands from Ohio to Texas. And as horrifying answers begin to emerge, so King's propulsive story of almost unbearable suspense kicks into high gear.
Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy but there is one rock-hard fact, as unassailable as gravity: a man cannot be in two places at the same time. Can he?
