معرفی کتاب دختری که گذشته ای نداشت از نگاه کاربران
Leah is leading a lonely life working in a library and keeping herself isolated from the world around her. She is feeling guilty about something that has happened in her past.
That past starts to catch up with her in the form of threats and scary events. So Leah is forced to revisit her past to investigate who is after her now.

I really enjoyed this from start to finish. Its one of these books where you just HAVE to read JUST a couple more pages to see what is going to happen next. The author is very good at building suspense and revealing details bit by bit. It was totally unpredictable and had some very good twists.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review.

Leah has been punishing herself for an incident that happened while she was in high school. The layout of the story is good-we dont find out about the incident until the very end, and chapters vary from present to past. The writing is mediocre and the title doesnt seem appropriate for the story. If you enjoy psychological thrillers, you may enjoy this!

The Girl with No Past by Kathryn Croft is a 2015 Bookouture publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Well written Psychological thrillers are hard to come by, and I couldn’t help but notice this one was very well received, so I have been looking forward to reading this one.

Right from the start the reader picks up on Leah’s chosen, yet not by choice, lifestyle. She is hiding away from a dark and troubled past, shoves people away who try to get close to her, but craves friendship and companionship.

But, when Leah begins to receive a string of notes and emails reminding her of her past, suggesting she has gotten away with something, and it is now time to pay the piper, Leah begins touching base with people from her past trying to figure out who is tormenting her. In the process the reader is taken back in time to Leah’s high school days, with the story of how Leah came to this point in her life, slowly unfolding.

The mystery here has several layers:

What did Leah do that she must now pay a penance for?

Who is stalking her?

Is she in danger or is she really the bad guy?

Are her new friends/ lovers trustworthy?

This story is edgy, dark, atmospheric, and has all the trademarks of a good thriller. It’s absorbing, keeping the reader in a constant state of suspension. The twist and turns are perfectly timed and are not included for mere shock value. I admit I fell for the whole set up, hook, line and sinker. But, still at the end of the day, there was just something too pat about the story, even with that last minute revelation that left me with a little spine tingle, I still came away from it feeling the story was a little flat, somehow.

This could simply be an occupational hazard. Reading as often and as much as I do, it is easy to become a little jaded. Having said that, I still enjoyed the book and think it’s a solid thriller, and can see why so many people have enjoyed it.


I don’t think I have read anything else by this author, but I am impressed enough to keep my eyes open for any future releases from her. I can see real potential here and have a feeling this author is on the cusp of becoming a well-known name within this genre.

While I can’t say I loved this one as well as most, it is still a very good book that I would recommend to lovers of psychological thrillers.

The Girl With No Past is an excellent psychological thriller that’s hard to stop reading once you start. It keeps you in suspense right to very end as you desperately read on wanting to discover the truth of Leah’s past. A very easy and enjoyable read that I finished in a day. I can happily recommend this book to you.

The story flips between the past and present as the author Kathryn Croft slowly brings it all together to reveal, as the tension builds, what’s really going on. Leah in the present is punishing herself for something hidden and isn’t living her life to its full potential. She hides away in her small London flat escaping into her books and avoiding any kind of social life. No friends, an unchallenging job and little contact with her mother she is beginning to appreciate how lonely she has become. The parallel story of her past begins when she is a teenager at school and meets her first love Adam. She is clever and enjoys her friendship with best friend Imogen and her boyfriend Corey. The four of them look to have bright futures until something shocking happens that will change their lives forever.

This is gripping stuff as Leah’s new attempts at romance begin to bring her life crashing down around her and the past back to haunt her further. It builds nicely with a few twists that keep you guessing and turning the pages. The suspense of wanting to know about the past is the hook that drives the reader on and it’s very well done by the author. This is another very good read from the publisher Bookouture that won’t disappoint you. (Received ARC)

A novel that reiterates the idea that one mistake can have life-altering consequences, “The girl with no past” is a well rendered psychological thriller. The protagonist Leah Mills was neurotic, damaged and not very endearing, but she was perfect for the situation the novel placed her in.

This novel will appeal to all who love a good psychological, character-based mystery.
