I want to thank Audible reviewer Wayne for pointing me to this book, I totally missed this one!
I thought this was a very good book. Completely different from the Jack Stratton novels which are fast and fun. This book is a little more serious. I wouldn't say more complex but I wouldn't call it fun. Definitely fast paced with a wide variety of murder suspects. By the time I got to the end I had kind of guessed who done it but was still a little surprised when that person was confirmed. All of the loose ends were not neatly tied up but I guess the author leaves that up to the listeners imagination, unless he intends to write another.
Amy McFadden did a wonderful job narrating. Her voice fit the main character perfectly.

...is not quite as good as either any of the 7 novel Jack Stratton modern detective series by the same author (Christopher Greyson) or the psychological thriller I reviewed last night (Killman Creek by Rachel Caine). There is a plot twist at the end of the Girl Who Lived that is so stunning that I must rate the novel 5 stars.
The Girl Who Lived is about 23 year old Faith Winters who has been in and out of mental hospitals during the 10 years since her dad supposedly killed her older sister and then killed himself as Faith escaped. Faith's mother, a psychologist, was not present at the time. Faith is convinced that a rat-faced man she believes she saw at the scene is the real killer. Amy McFadden's narration is first rate. I recommend this Christopher Greyson psychological thriller, but my recommendation is even stronger for Greyson's seven novel fun Detective Jack Stratton suspense mystery series which should be read in order beginning with Girl Jacked.
