Conhecimento Comum



An innocent man is accused of murder when he wakes up in a random hotel room with a woman's body in the bathroom. No recollection after a certain point of the night before and the two detectives have just give him an ultimatum. How much does he think his innocence is worth? What's the price of not being convicted of murder? But he didn't kill that woman and he is not about to be taken advantage of. Bound to prove his innocence, he decides to stick with his plan instead and soon the race is on to get to the truth of what was in that hotel room, who did it and why? This was a fast ride of a thriller just when you think it cannot get any faster, the author gives it a little more gas and you are holding on until the very end. I really loved this story and hope there is more to come with Danny. Thank you to Thriller Book Lovers Promotions for the invite, to the author and publisher for the free novel. This one will be staying on my shelf and I will be looking for more of his novels to read.… (mais)

Lol this was kind of a disaster. The characters were all just there to serve as plot points basically and it was just kind of ridiculous. It was also a pretty cliche portrayal of high school and also ridiculous. Overall, ridiculous. But like I got through it so two stars.

What in the misogynistic predictable absolutely stupid hell did I just read ??? Possibly one of the worst books in existence

“think it was then I realized it was true—a lot of the friends you have in high school will be friends you’ll never see again. The only thing keeping you together is a giant building. Once you’re out of that building, the invisible binds snap, and you’re set free.”
― Avery Bishop, Girl Gone Mad

Welll..well, well, well..was this a wild read or what?

I admit the beginning did not draw me in. Slow burn people! Wait for it.

And wait you should because this book is GOOD. It so plays with your head. But more than anything..it's damn creepy! Really creepy! a very so lid and riveting thriller.

"The Harpies" are in danger and they do not know who can help them. Who are the Harpies? Well the "mean girls" from school..all grown up. Going about their own little lives when one of the Harpies..out of nowhere..seemingly commits suicide. Very sad and tragic. But why does a SECOND Harpy then follow?

Is someone out to get the harpies? someone they went to school with and treated terribly? Someone like Grace?

The Harpies were popular but also dangerous..they did horrible things and the whole school was afraid of them. And then there is Grace.

Little Grace. Sweet and innocent with a naive life's view and a beguiling sweetness that drives the Harpies crazy and leads to them doing a thing or two to Grace that cannot be undone.

This story is great! It is told mostly by Emily, one of the ex Harpies and one who feels much guilt for her behavior as a kid. She cannot be happy as an adult and wonders if it is because of the sins of the past. But when Harpies start dropping, Emily, along with another Harpy or two, need to find out what is going on. The truth is more mind blowing then anyone could have imagined..

Read this one fellow mystery fans! It is a slow burn of a book that really is creepy and will have you scrambling to figure out what in the world is going on..if anything.

It is slow to heat up and I'd say around the 2nd quarter of the book is when Girl Gone Mad becomes a book one cannot put down.

So..a strong four stars from me. It completely wowed me. The only negative is things can get very confusing but trust me..all questions will be answered by the last page. Read it!
