When She Was Good by Michael Robotham is a marvellous contemporary crime suspense that I could not put down. It is the second book in the Cyrus Haven series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Wow, what a fantastic book that totally consumed me. The action is told from two alternating points of view. A series of flashbacks fill in the blanks for the reader in this cleverly constructed and well executed read.
Characters are linked by tragedies. Trust does not come easy. To divert one’s own mind from past events, a character seeks to rescue another. Strong bonds are formed in unlikely places.
Characters are searching for the truth but the closer they get to it, the higher the body count.
Michael Robotham is a new author to me and I cannot wait to read more by him. This was a totally thrilling, highly absorbing read. There are some hard to read scenes of child abuse and neglect that stand side by side with pockets of kindness. I can highly recommend this book.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
