The Good Daughter (Good Daughter, #1)
The stunning new novel from the international #1 bestselling author — a searing, spellbinding blend of cold-case thriller and psychological suspense.

Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…

Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father — Pikeville's notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.

Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father's footsteps to become a lawyer herself — the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again — and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized — Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it's a case that unleashes the terrible memories she's spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won't stay buried forever…

Packed with twists and turns, brimming with emotion and heart, The Good Daughter is fiction at its most thrilling.

    Whenever I get my hands on a book by Karin Slaughter, I always have this feeling I should put on a seatbelt before I crack the cover. She tends to nibble away at the edge of your comfort zone with stories that are intense, emotional & disturbing. This one is no different. The bo...

    DNF @ 32%Ever since Pretty Girls I have been a huge fan girl of Ms. Slaughter's. So I was really excited to see she had another standalone coming out. I started this book about a week and a half ago, approximately, and I've only gotten 32%. This is not good, especially since I put it d...

    Firstly, I loved that this book was a total reversal of her other books. No, she did not abandon lawyers but this featured a look from the defense which which was refreshing to my bleeding heart. I keep expecting to be disappointed by at least one of her books, but she continues to sla...

    Disclaimer: Every time I read a Karin Slaughter book, I gear up for something SPECTACULAR. As far as I’m concerned, she’s set the bar for crime fiction so freaking high that no others need apply. So, it almost seems unfair for me to rate her new novel, as I hold her works to ...

    It is that time of year again! A new Karin Slaughter is released. Fabulous! I am a little sad, that there is no Will Trent or Sara Linton in sight. I am patient (not really). I can pretend to be patient. As Karin Slaughter is one of my absolutely favourite authors, it will come as no s...
