Synopsis

ONE OF THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY, CONTROVERSIAL AND EXPLOSIVE DEBUTS OF 2017 NEW NAME . NEW FAMILY. SHINY. NEW. ME. Annie's mother is a serial killer. The only way she can make it stop is to hand her in to the police. But out of sight is not out of mind. As her mother's trial looms, the secrets of her past won't let Annie sleep, even with a new foster family and name - Milly. A fresh start. Now, surely, she can be whoever she wants to be. But Milly's mother is a serial killer. And blood is thicker than water. Good me, bad me. She is, after all, her mother's daughter... Translated into over 20 languages, Good Me, Bad Me is a tour de force. In its narrator, Milly Barnes, we have a voice to be reckoned with, and in its author, Ali Land, an extraordinary new talent. Good Me Bad Me is for fans of quality psychological suspense and reading group fiction. 'The new Girl on The Train, which was the new Gone Girl. You get the picture. This psycho-thriller by Ali Land is set to be massive' - Cosmopolitan 'A creepy, compulsive thriller I read in one breathless gulp. Good Me Bad Me reveals its shocking secrets slowly while reeling in the reader with all the intricate skill of a spider spinning a web. One not to be missed' - Red 'Original and compelling - what a sensational debut!' - Clare Mackintosh, number one bestselling author of I See You and I Let You Go 'An astoundingly compelling thriller. Beyond tense. You hardly breathe. Best read in ages' - Matt Haig 'I absolutely loved it and read it in less than a day. A proper page turner and brilliantly written' Edith Bowman 'Intelligent and disturbing, Good Me Bad Me had me hooked from the first page' - Debbie Howells, author of Richard & Judy book club bestseller The Bones of You
