The Perfect Girl


The New York Times bestselling author returns with her second international bestseller - an electrifying new novel about how the past will always find us, for fans of He Said/She Said and I See You.

To everyone who knows her now, Zoe Maisey - child genius, musical sensation - is perfect. Yet several years ago Zoe caused the death of three teenagers. She served her time, and now she's free.

Her story begins with her giving the performance of her life.

By midnight, her mother is dead.

The Perfect Girl is an intricate exploration into the mind of a teenager burdened by brilliance, and a past that she cannot leave behind.

Praise for The Perfect Girl:

'The Perfect Girl mesmerizes from first to last. Highly original and prickling with tension - I could not stop turning the pages!' Shari Lapena, bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

'A wonderfully addictive book with virtuoso plotting and characters - for anyone who loved The Girl on the Train, it's a must read' Rosamund Lupton, bestselling author of Sister

'Literary suspense at its finest' Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Baby

'Intense, electrifying...grips like a python from the first page' Daily Mail

'An intense, unpredictable page turner' Good Housekeeping

'An unusual plot is accompanied by sharp characters and a thought-provoking dénouement' Times

'Masterfully drawn characters and intricate plotting make this a stunning piece of crime fiction' Booklist

'A suspenseful, serpentine tale . . . [with a] perfectly executed final twist' Publishers 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

'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
