The Girl Who Lived

Book: The Girl Who Lived
Author: Christopher Greyson

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?-Goodreads

Review: This was my first Christopher Greyson book and while I found the ending completely ridiculous, this was otherwise a well crafted tale. Faith is a flawed heroine but I was drawn into her story and the mystery of who killed her sister and father. Overall I enjoyed this. 

Grade: 3/5
