You'd know if someone close to you was capable of lethal violence, right? Dead wrong.
Accused of grassing up a fellow officer and driven brutally out of home and job, Grace Fisher is thankful to survive some dark times and find haven with the Major Investigation Team in Essex.
One female student is missing, last seen at a popular bar in Colchester. When a second student, also out drinking, is murdered and left grotesquely posed, the case becomes headline news.
Someone is leaking disturbing details to a tabloid crime reporter. Is it the killer? Or a detective close to the case?
With another victim, and under siege by the media, the murder enquiry hits a dead end. The review team brought in to shake things up is headed by Grace's old DCI. Who is going to listen to her now?

It's very rare that a book hooks me from the start like this. I really got a feeling for the characters early on and they had their own personalities which really gave the story depth. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing those personalities through too.
I really hope this is the beginning of a series for grace fisher, I will be keeping an eye out for the next one!
A first for me by this author and I couldn't stop listening! A good British book, with decent modest detectives. Excellent all round.
Nice to listen to a story that doesn't use or need graphic sexual content , nicely written explaining a women's struggle in a male dominated environment without banging on about the injustice of it or women's Lib and very well narrated by Melody Grove .

Its well written, with well drawn characters. It would have been at least a 4* if not that it was too drawn out. It needed editing down. It was a good story, but I lost interest from time to time because it just went on, and on. Should have been tighter.
Her narration is excellent here.
One of the early chapters was randomly repeated as chapter 15 or 16 but apart from that minor irritation it was a very good book, I enjoyed it. I liked the narrator it was well read and easy to listen to. I will look out for more from this author.
Good Girls Don't Die was a good listen.
The main characters were well built and believable. Although I had guessed who the killer was it didn't really spoil the ending
Never having heard or read anything by Isabelle Grey, I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did.
A good plausible story, well written and reasonably fast paced.
Will now download others of hers.
All of it was memorable I recommended it to friend as soon as I finished it.
The story was good lots of different characters to get to know, intriguing plot kept you guessing all the way through. Don't pass this one by.
I enjoy reading but never find the time to pick up a book so Audible has been a great find! Addicted to good detective crime books!
Like another reviewer I wasn't sure what to expect but I actually enjoyed this listen. Not the normal gore but a more 'lighter' thriller.
Good story and background for the lead character Grace - hopefully ther will be more from her?
All in all a good purchase.
