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 the last spot on earth she wants to be - her hometown where the slayings took place. Wracked by the lingering echoes of survivor’s guilt, Faith spirals into a black hole of alcoholism and wanton self-destruction. Finding no solace at the bottom of a bottle, Faith decides to track down her sister’s killer - and then discovers that she’s the one being hunted.
How can one woman uncover the truth when everyone’s a suspect - including herself?
From the mind of Wall Street Journal best-selling author Christopher Greyson comes a story with twists and turns that take the listener on a journey of light and dark, good and evil, to the edge of madness. The Girl Who Lived should come with a warning label: Once you start listening, you won’t be able to stop. Not since Girl on the Train and Gone Girl has a psychological thriller kept listeners so addicted - and guessing right until the last minute.

Who do you trust when you trust no one?
I want to thank Audible reviewer Wayne for pointing me to this book, I totally missed this one!
I thought this was a very good book. Completely different from the Jack Stratton novels which are fast and fun. This book is a little more serious. I wouldn't say more complex but I wouldn't call it fun. Definitely fast paced with a wide variety of murder suspects. By the time I got to the end I had kind of guessed who done it but was still a little surprised when that person was confirmed. All of the loose ends were not neatly tied up but I guess the author leaves that up to the listeners imagination, unless he intends to write another.
Amy McFadden did a wonderful job narrating. Her voice fit the main character perfectly.

Excellent psychological thriller, but it...
...is not quite as good as either any of the 7 novel Jack Stratton modern detective series by the same author (Christopher Greyson) or the psychological thriller I reviewed last night (Killman Creek by Rachel Caine). There is a plot twist at the end of the Girl Who Lived that is so stunning that I must rate the novel 5 stars.
The Girl Who Lived is about 23 year old Faith Winters who has been in and out of mental hospitals during the 10 years since her dad supposedly killed her older sister and then killed himself as Faith escaped. Faith's mother, a psychologist, was not present at the time. Faith is convinced that a rat-faced man she believes she saw at the scene is the real killer. Amy McFadden's narration is first rate. I recommend this Christopher Greyson psychological thriller, but my recommendation is even stronger for Greyson's seven novel fun Detective Jack Stratton suspense mystery series which should be read in order beginning with Girl Jacked.
