Book Description:

And the killer has a very special part for George to play…

A thrilling race against time with a heroine you’ll be rooting for, this book will keep you up all night!

My Thought’s:

The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die is a dark fast paced thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat right until the end.

Set mainly in Amsterdam, the author does a great job in describing university life and also the prostitution and drug scene that Amsterdam is notorious for, so much so it almost felt like I was there.

Georgina ‘George’ Mckenzie originally from the UK is a student studying at the University of Amsterdam. As she is training to be a criminologist she becomes extremely intrigued when her friend Ad rings her to tell her about a suspected suicide bomber that has been killed nearby to where she is staying.

Things start to get very interesting from this point and George starts sticking her nose into police matters much to the annoyance of Paul Van Den Bergen.

I loved the relationship between George and Paul as well as her relationship with Ad. Over the course of the story you can tell that Paul starts to care about George in a fatherly way and I enjoyed seeing the bond between them grow. Ad for some reason actually stood out more to me than George in this book. I really don’t know why. I really liked George’s character as she is a very strong willed woman and nothing seemed to phase her, but there was just something about Ad that just appealed to me more. I don’t know if it is because he felt to me more vulnerable but he just came across as a really nice guy and someone you would be lucky to have in your life.

I really enjoyed this book and I certainly look forward to reading more by Marnie Riches.

I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.

The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die is available to purchase from Amazon.
