The Perfect Girl

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The New York Times bestselling author of What She Knew returns with an electrifying new novel about how the past will always find us...

"Literary suspense at its finest.”—Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Baby

“A wonderfully addictive book with virtuoso plotting and characters - for anyone who loved Girl on the Train, it’s a must read.”
   — Rosamund Lupton

Zoe Maisey is a seventeen-year-old musical prodigy with a genius IQ. Three years ago, she was involved in a tragic incident that left three classmates dead. She served her time, and now her mother, Maria, is resolved to keep that devastating fact tucked far away from their new beginning, hiding the past even from her new husband and demanding Zoe do the same. 

Tonight Zoe is giving a recital that Maria has been planning for months. It needs to be the performance of her life. But instead, by the end of the evening, Maria is dead.

In the aftermath, everyone—police, family, Zoe’s former solicitor, and Zoe herself—tries to piece together what happened. But as Zoe knows all too well, the truth is rarely straightforward, and the closer we are to someone, the less we may see.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 18, 2016 – Piano prodigy Zoe Maisey, the 17-year-old heroine of this cunningly plotted psychological thriller from Thriller Award finalist Macmillan (What She Knew), and her devoted mother, Maria, have against all odds started a promising second act in Bristol, England, after a night in Devon three years earlier that shattered Zoe's life and snuffed out those of a trio of other teens. Maria has married wealthy entrepreneur Chris Kennedy, and Zoe now has a baby half sister, Grace. All is well until a piano recital brings the past roaring back with devastating consequences. Unfortunately, Zoe and Maria aren't the only ones with secrets, and what they don't know about Chris and his brooding teenage son, Lucas, just might prove their undoing. As the suspenseful, serpentine tale unreels from the alternating perspectives of several key players, readers will be rooting for the resilient, resourceful Zoe all the way to the perfectly executed final twists.

What She Knew

It is an excellent book. It was difficult to put down.

What a fabulous book!

I am an avid reader and, sadly have begun to find that good books are becoming a bit scarce of late. So I was thrilled to find this gem of a book. The characters are genuine and most likable (except for the ones you aren't supposed to like). The main character, Zoe, is so real and her journey so difficult, but you know what a Truly good person she is and what a good, pure heart she has. The pace of this book is just right, as it leads us through to a quite shocking ending - not an abrupt one, it was perfectly paced.
Buy this book and if by (no) chance you don't love it, too - look me up and I'll give you five bucks😉

Great Read

I was hooked from the beginning. I was interested in all the characters and felt they had just enough character development. I enjoyed the writing style as well. I get bored very easily when reading and could not put it down!!!
