Description

The stunning new standalone, with a chilling edge of psychological suspense, from the No.1 bestselling author of the Will Trent and Grant County series. 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...show more

Review quote

`This is a great writer at the peak of her powers. Karin Slaughter is at her nail-biting, heart-stopping, emotionally-draining best.' Peter James 'Karin Slaughter has - by far - the best name of all of us mystery novelists. More to the point, THE GOOD DAUGHTER is Karin Slaughter's most ambitious, most emotional, and best novel. So far, anyway.' James Patterson `Simply the best book you'll read all year. Raw, powerful and utterly gripping - yet written with a tenderness and empathy that will break your heart'. Kathryn Stockett, bestselling author of THE HELP `The darkness of the past is very present in this utterly chilling thriller. With heart and skill Karin Slaughter keeps you hooked from the first page until the last.' Camilla Lackberg `It's big, dark, rich, satisfying, and bloody - like a perfectly cooked steak'Stuart MacBride `The best yet' Lesley Pearse `A great read' Daily Mail Praise for Karin Slaughter: `I'd follow her anywhere' Gillian Flynn `One of the boldest thriller writers working today' Tess Gerritsen `Her characters, plot, and pacing are unrivaled' Michael Connelly `Passion, intensity, and humanity.' Lee Child `A writer of extraordinary talents.' Kathy Reichs `Fiction doesn't get any better than this.' Jefferey Deavershow more
