Searing and unflinching, Good Girls Die Last is rousing, angry and beautiful.
Impossible to put down, right to the gut-punch ending. Stunning, I absolutely loved it.

Good Girls Die Last


Today, nothing is going right for Em. And it’s about to get much worse.

Heartbroken by a recent split, with her 30th birthday looming, she loses her job and her home in the same morning because of two swaggering, dishonest men – the boss who sexually harassed her and the flatmate sleeping with her behind his fiancée’s back. But all Em can think about is catching a flight to attend her sister’s wedding and see her dying mother.

With a record-breaking heatwave, and a serial killer making the streets unsafe, London is completely gridlocked. Em’s life has always been full of men getting their own way, and today the scorched city teems with them standing between her and home. As Em’s troubled past returns to haunt her, she refuses to let them win. Her defiance leads to shocking consequences that soon spiral wildly out of control.

In a world where men don’t listen, and girls have no voice, one woman can change everything.

Today, no one will be staying silent.

I absolutely demolished it. I thought it was so timely, so believable, so gripping. And it packs a punch that’ll bruise me for a long time to come.
