Ive been following her for the past few days. I know where she buys her groceries, where she has her dry cleaning done, where she works. I dont know the color of her eyes or what they look like when shes scared. But I will. Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesnt show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mias life. Colins job was to abduct Mia as part of a wild extortion plot and deliver her to his employers. But the plan takes an unexpected turn when Colin suddenly decides to hide Mia in a secluded cabin in rural Minnesota, evading the police and his deadly superiors. Mias mother, Eve, and Detective Gabe Hoffman will stop at nothing to find them, but no one could have predicted the emotional entanglements that eventually cause this familys world to shatter. An addictively suspenseful and tautly written thriller, The Good Girl is a compulsive debut that reveals how, even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems.
Some authors are rather generous with their personal information and background, and others are not. It is a personal decision, and one that American author, Mary Kubica, chooses to keep private.
Mary is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of five novels including........The Good Girl, Pretty Baby, Don't You Cry, Every Last Lie, and When the Lights Go Out. She received several awards for her first novel, The Good Girl.
Mary has been adequately described as......a helluva storyteller........a writer of vice-like control.......and her novels are hypnotic, thrilling and illuminating.
Kubica holds a BA degree from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She lives in Chicago with her husband and two children. She has begun work on a new novel.
