Book Synopsis



"Thrilling and illuminating."--LA Times

"A hypnotic psychological thriller." --People

A chance encounter sparks an unrelenting web of lies in this new gripping and complex psychological thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl.


She sees the teenage girl on the train platform, standing in the pouring rain, clutching an infant in her arms. She boards a train and is whisked away. But she can't get the girl out of her head...

Heidi Wood has always been a charitable woman: she works for a nonprofit, takes in stray cats. Still, her husband and daughter are horrified when Heidi returns home one day with a young woman named Willow and her four-month-old baby in tow. Disheveled and apparently homeless, this girl could be a criminal--or worse. But despite her family's objections, Heidi invites Willow and the baby to take refuge in their home.

Heidi spends the next few days helping Willow get back on her feet, but as clues into Willow's past begin to surface, Heidi is forced to decide how far she's willing to go to help a stranger. What starts as an act of kindness quickly spirals into a story far more twisted than anyone could have anticipated.

Review Quotes



Thrilling and illuminating... [Pretty Baby] raises the ante on the genre and announces the welcome second coming of a talent well worth watching. -LA Times

A hypnotic psychological thriller.... [Pretty Baby] builds to a stunning climax involving revelations you won't see coming. -People

It's a perfect setup-but the twists you expect aren't the ones that arrive. -NPR

Suspense done well. -New York Magazine

Single White Female on steroids.... If you haven't read Mary Kubica yet, you need to start right this minute... This riveting psychological thriller had me turning the pages at warp speed. -Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author of Corrupted

A twisty, roller coaster ride of a debut. Fans of Gone Girl will embrace this equally evocative tale of a missing woman, shattered family and the lies we tell not just to each other, but especially to ourselves.
-Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fear Nothing

Intricately wrought suspense.... This is no familiar game of psychopaths; everyone is deeply flawed but deeply human. -Vulture

Hypnotic and anything but predictable. This book will give insomniacs a compelling reason to sit up all night.
-Kirkus, starred review

A superb psychological thriller... stunning. -Publishers Weekly, starred review

Psychologically rich and pulse pounding, The Good Girl had me hooked from the very first sentence and didn't let go until the final word. I can't wait to see what Mary Kubica comes up with next.
