Description

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.

    The story was a little too drawn out. The characters could have had more depth. At times I felt like should I continue with this read? I did finish but still felt I unsatisfied. I won’t recommend this book not because it’s a bad story it’s just a little I unchallenging.
  • A Bust

    I generally devour Karin Slaughter’s books, but not this one. I was unable to bond with any of the fictional characters. The story was not interesting. In fact, I read a couple of other books before I finally went back to finish the Good Daughter. Very disappointed with this book👎🏻

    This is the first of Karin Slaughter’s books that I have read. I will not rush to read another. The entire story does not “hang together” very well. Somehow the notion that the two girls who survived an extremely violent rape/murder/ beating etc. could go on to get into college and graduate law school.....well that just doesn’t happen! And much of the rest of the plot was pretty weak as well...there was not much character development anywhere. I got this book because the price was right. I wouldn’t be in a hurry to get another of her books!

    The characters were not likable, the story was retold too many times, the personalities were not believable. There were about 40 pages left, unfinished, because it was becoming redundant. Sorry.
  • Really liked this one

    I’ve been plowing through all the KS books for a few months now and this one was pretty good. Great characters, pretty good ending. Great story.
  • I will miss Sam and Charlie.

    A story with lots of twists and turns. And strong, smart women protagonists with a few personal twists and turns of their own.
