Girl A by Dan Scottow

Someone thinks they know who she is… and what she did. But she insists it’s a mistake.

All Beth has ever wanted is a quiet life for her and her family. And that is what she has, until one evening a note is pushed through the door, with two words scrawled in menacing black ink;
Found you.

As Beth’s neatly crafted life begins to unravel, an unseen menace torments her and those she loves. But who’s behind the threats? Somebody is out to get Beth, but do they have the right woman? Beth faces losing everything, and there is far more at stake than just her marriage… 

Girl A Book Cover


Girl A has everything I look for in a book: dark psychological thriller, great storyline, and an unpredictable plot. I’m not exaggerating when I say I couldn’t put it down. This book is so well-written, with a plot that unravels bit by bit, just at the right times. 

The characters in Girl A were great. The secondary characters felt as if they were split into two groups: likable and unlikable. Beth sits at the centre, with my opinion of her wavering between good and bad, really depending on which character she was interacting with. I liked that I couldn’t really figure her out; it made the thrills of reading this book even better.

The author has written Girl A with so much anticipation and suspense, highlighted by chapters alternating between past and present. Although I couldn’t really figure her out, this method did offer good insight into Beth’s character. The setting of Beth’s home was also very well set up, with its chilling, isolated location adding to the suspense of the story.

Girl A was a fantastic read and I couldn’t get enough of it! It takes a lot for me to give a book five stars but this one deserved nothing less.

Girl A is available to buy now.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
