The Girl Who Lived
No one believes her story.
The police think she’s crazy.
Her therapist thinks she’s suicidal.
Everyone else thinks she’s a dangerous drunk.
They’re all right—but did she see the killer?
As the anniversary of the murders approaches, Faith Winters is released from the psychiatric hospital and yanked back to ...more

The Girl Who Lived is my first read by author, Christopher Greyson. I was hooked at chapter one. The author was able to grab my attention from the beginning and keep it until the end. I could not put this book down and finished it in one day which is super-fast for me. The cover art for this book was amazing!
I totally loved the main character, Faith Winters. She is a young girl who comes with many flaws but because of that...more
Ah yes, the elusive 5th star in the mystery/thriller genre rating system. At least for me, when you read so many thrillers back to back it's pretty easy to see the formula for writing. That's certainly not to say that I myself could do that, I definitely can not. My only point is, at a certain point it becomes par for the course instead of really taking you by surprise. So when something new, something rich and exciting comes alo ...more
So I had a lot of issues with this story--well, let me rephrase. There were a lot of things about this story that I didn't like.
Let's start with the main character. Personally...and I guess I should stress the personally part of this because this is completely, 100% my opinion and I'm sure there are people out there who would disagree, but...Faith's character just never did much for me. She was too disoriented? I guess would be the best word? She never really seemed capable of stopping to ...more
Ten years had gone by and Faith had never fully recovered from the horror she experienced that day. Faith’s sister, father, best friend and her best friend’s mother were all ...more
A real page-turner, good fun to read.
Generally speaking, I'm not a mad fan of the suspense / crime genre, but I'm always happy to give any book a try, especially if it's got some good reviews.
I commenced reading The Girl Who Lived with the expectation that it would comply with the standard genre formula, but offer a gripping, fast-paced read. It didn't disappoint. Yes, it was marginally formulaic, but I had a lot of ...more
That was an amazing thriller!!
Suspense, suspense, suspense!!!
Those are the good thriller, where the reader is chocked in every chapter more and more!! But the end is the real SURPRISE!! In this book I laughed, I cried, I was chocked, I was happy, I was sad, I was angry omg all my feelings got expressed!
The author omg the author!!! It is just a wonderful work like how Christopher Greyson transfer purely the chock that Faith has everytime she discovers something crazy!

Ten years ago, Faith Winters ran and hid from an attacker. That's the only thing that saved her from suff ...more
Over all, it was a good read but reader should be warned there is plenty of violence which is to be expected and there is quite a bit of talk about suicide.
I feel really sympathize with Faith. What she experience is so horrible and it should be understandable knowing what she went through. IT IS HORRIBLE. It is just sad that no one believed in her.
I love Faith's resilience. She really push through, even though she is scared and no one believed in her. I love everything about her. I understand her doubts with the people she encounter. It is indeed hard to trust when you are being hunted.
The ending is definite ...more
Ten years ago, when she was 13, Faith Winters watched the brutal killing of 4 people she knew and loved. And for 10 years she’s been in and out of trouble with the law and committed to psychiatric institutions because of it. As the 10th anniversary of the murders approaches, she is released from her most recent psychiatric incarceration and sent back to a world where no one believ ...more
I am a huge fan of the Jack Stratton Series, by Christopher Greyson, so I was excited to receive The Girl Who Lived. I like mystery, suspense, thrillers, and psychological thrillers in general. This book definitely fits into those categories.
Although the writing style is Christopher Greyson it is a departure from the Jack Stratton Series. The Girl Who Lived is a bit darker, it deals with survivors guilt and addictions that manifest themselves aft ...more
I was caught off guard, I laughed, and I cried. I wanna blame PMS, but you guys... this ending is powerful.
I wanna be just like Faith, minus the tragedy she endures. This girl is the strongest woman I've ever encountered. When faced with a situation where you can literally trust no one, what would you do? Faith? Well she fought and fought hard. I want to hug her, and tell her I'm proud of her and I admire her.
I don't even think I can put into words how much I ...more
