Publisher Description

The stunning new standalone, with a chilling edge of psychological suspense, from the bestselling author of Pretty Girls.
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 smalltown 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 defence 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 archetypal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again - and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatised - Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it's a case which can't help triggering the terrible memories she's spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime which destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won't stay buried for ever ...

Starts with a bang

Great read. This book starts with a bang. From the first few pages I was hooked. Hard to keep up such pace, a slow burn keeps you turning pages. All-in-all a great read.

Absolutely terrific!

A challenging read with flashbacks and intriguing, complex characters but oh, so worth it! The author is definitely a masterful storyteller.

The Good Daughter

This was a great read even though parts were horrific, uncomfortable and confronting. The writer has delivered a great story and uses effective writing structures or effects to bring home to the reader terrifying events. The characters, setting and plots made for intrigue, and plausibility. It totally made me think about our values, the culture of convention and conditioning, resilience and making the best of ourselves, love, loss and so much more.

Congratulations Karin Slaughter
