I was fascinated by Julies character throughout. She describes herself as white trailer trash, but her life takes a turn when she meets highly educated professor Matt. Her character is complex and interesting and you continually doubt whether she is a complete psychopath or is being played for a fool.
On the other hand detective Mel is a strong character dealing with her own family issues and trying to continue her career as a single mum. I love the way you start to believe you have unfolded the plot and bam! Goldings novel is a captivating story that manages to hold your attention from start to finish. It is exciting and twisted and leaves your hanging, but satisfied at the end.

The story starts with two apparently separate stories which merge together to create a reading experience that takes an unbreakable hold on the reader's attention. The story throws and teases, and you don't know which way it will go until the very end.
This is one of the best books that I have read for a long time and I would highly recommend this book for readers who loves psychological thrillers, or just anyone looking for a great I read the Girl in Kellers Way and I could not put it down.

The writing was very good and the story and characters were compelling. It's among the best psychological crime thrillers that I have read in my opinion mostly because it has so many unexpected twists and it is very clever. I hope to read more books from this author.

One of the best that I've read for ages. Jun 28, Deborah rated it really liked it. Julie West who describes herself as former trailer park trash is married to the wealthy enigmatic psychology professor and academic Matt and raising their daughter Alice. But we learn early that Julie is struggling.
Mel however, is the person we can trust in this novel, as Julie hovers between some sort of fugue state and one of jealous mania. And Matt, well… Julie describes him for us at one point… And then of course, just as our suspect becomes obvious…. Goldin tosses in some curve balls. I very much enjoyed this debut thriller by Goldin who offers us interesting and complex characters — if not always likeable, and a twisty and uncertain plot — cleverly keeping us in the dark for much of the novel. Apr 13, Julie Garner rated it it was amazing Shelves: crime-thriller , arc. I received an Advanced Reading copy of this book.
That is what happened to me when I started reading this book. I was enthralled and captured, much the way one of the characters is. There is murder, mystery and of course, mayhem aplenty! Who is the Girl in Kellers Way? How did she die? Where does Julie tie in to this and can Detective Melanie Carter connect the dots?
These are just SOME of the questions raised as you read this book and it takes you on quite an adventure to the I received an Advanced Reading copy of this book. I am getting used to the multiple voices telling us the stories and the jumps between past and present as a way of showing us what is happening. The Girl in Kellers Way is no different in following this new, over-utilised method of fiction, however, Goldin is an expert at weaving it all together so that you, as the reader, do not get lost or left behind. I love that when I got to the end of the book I asked out loud 'Is that the end?
Surely that can't be it? I need more Suffice to say that even though this book has not been published yet, I can't wait for book two Jun 16, Anne rated it it was amazing. I love books that I can't stop reading.

Chloe Jun 20, Jo rated it really liked it. The contrast between the viewpoints of highly dependent and erratic housewife Julie and the very likeable, stoic and reliable detective Mel keeps readers guessing and short chapters help build suspense. Jun 21, Carole rated it it was amazing. Absolutely riveting, I couldn't put it down. Can't wait to see what else this author has in store. Jun 17, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a great read. I figured out the basic plot fairly early on but the fact I still couldn't put it down is a testament to the great writing.
Aug 03, Stella rated it it was amazing. I first heard about this book in Women's Day magazine and then New Idea and then a few more. They all raved about it as the next The Girl on the Train. I had a few other books to read first but then I saw a review in The Age and I decided not to wait. I read it quickly because it is the type of book that is hard to stop reading. It was an excellent psychological thriller.

Jul 20, Annie Topp rated it it was amazing. This book was recommended to me by a friend - a bit of a six degrees of separation thing. I was skeptical, but it sounded good.
