Sisters. Strangers. Survivors.
More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that’s cruelly ripped open when Claire’s husband is killed.
The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago . . . and uncovering the possibility of redemption, and revenge, where they least expect it.
Powerful, poignant, and utterly gripping, packed with indelible characters and unforgettable twists, Pretty Girls is a masterful novel from one of the finest writers working today.
Included with this gripping thriller is Karin Slaughter’s chilling short story “Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes.”

Dark and well written
She is a fabulous writer. Although the material is dark and violent, I enjoyed it.
Really well written & the narrator did an amazing job. I probably couldn’t have gotten through this book without listening to it as audio as it’s very dark, but I can’t deny that it’s a VERY good book! I’ll definitely be reading more from this author.
My third Karin Slaughter book, the absolute best so far.. the story is excruciating but captivating, so many twist. Extremely well done if you like these types of detailed stories, which I do. Quickly becoming my favorite author of suspense mysteries.
