Good Me Bad Me is dark, compelling, voice-driven psychological suspense by debut author Ali Land: "Could not be more unputdownable if it was slathered with superglue." ―Sunday Express
Milly’s mother is a serial killer. Though Milly loves her mother, the only way to make her stop is to turn her in to the police. Milly is given a fresh start: a new identity, a home with an affluent foster family, and a spot at an exclusive private school.
But Milly has secrets, and life at her new home becomes complicated. As her mother’s trial looms, with Milly as the star witness, Milly starts to wonder how much of her is nature, how much of her is nurture, and whether she is doomed to turn out like her mother after all.
When tensions rise and Milly feels trapped by her shiny new life, she has to decide: Will she be good? Or is she bad? She is, after all, her mother's daughter.

Wow, this book was amazing.  It captures the reader from page one and does not stop.  I love that there was so much depth in this book, which made it hard to put down.  The story stems from childhood trauma and the dark side of family dysfunction capturing characters and their own truths.  A stunning thriller that was compelling and original...a must read for fall.

Ali LandAfter graduating from university with a degree in Mental Health, Ali spent a decade working as a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Nurse in both hospitals and schools in the UK and Australia. Though a voracious reader from a young age and a keen observer of the world, it took Ali over thirty years to put pen to paper but she sure is glad she did! Ali's debut novel Good Me Bad Me is an international bestseller and will be translated into twenty-three languages. It was short-listed for a Dead Good Reader Award and short-listed by the Crime Writers Association for the John Creasey New Blood Dagger. It is also a Richard and Judy book club pick. She is now a full-time writer and lives in Notting Hill and is currently working on her second novel.
