The Girl She Was

Alafair Burke
AUD $29.99

The past refuses to be forgotten in this gripping new thriller from the author of The Wife and The Better Sister.

She calls herself Hope Miller, but she has no idea who she actually is.

Fourteen years ago, she was found, thrown from an overturned vehicle, with no clue to her identity. Hope eventually started a new life, but never recovered her memory - and always wondered what she may have left behind, or what she could have been running away from.

Now she's missing. The only lead is a drop of blood connected to a notorious Kansas murderer. With nowhere else to turn, Hope's best friend, Lindsay Kelly, calls NYPD homicide detective Ellie Hatcher - a woman with her own complicated history and links to the Kansas case.

In pursuit of answers, three women search for the truth beneath long-buried secrets. And when their searches converge, what they find will upend everything they've ever known.

'Alafair Burke's latest propulsive thrill-ride is a suspenseful, twisty mystery about memory, friendship and secrets. A page-turner of the highest order.' - Laura Dave, author of The Last Thing He Told Me
