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.

This book has many story lines weaved in to make you wonder where it is going in places but in all a good read

This is the first book in a long time that kept my attention and made me laugh out loud. The characters come to life on the page.
Highly recommend this book..

This was my first novel by Slaughter. I just find her writing style to be too, too wordy. She is absorbed in minute detail, drawing out every description to see how far she can push it whether it's a person's action, a murder scene, or a past failing of one of her characters. Similarly, the dialogue she writes between characters can go on for several pages with them bickering back and forth or someone trying to say something witty, but the plot is not really furthered - just stagnated. Then, the reader has to deal with the author's need to repeat several times, almost verbatim, what she has written at the beginning of the novel where she describes a traumatic event in the main characters' lives. The reader almost is ready to believe at different points in the novel that the author has forgotten about furthering the plot - the investigation of a school shoot out. At least this author can write a good sentence unlike some of the Best Seller Thriller authors. No wonder this novel turned out to be over 500 pages! This novel is too long for an ordinary person to read in a 7 day loan period.

I think Karin Slaughter is one of the best storytellers in fiction. She just sucks you in layer by layer. This book is totally different from anything she has written, but i could not put it down until I finished. I love her books and this one is wonderful.

Because it is Karin Slaughter, I clicked "hold" on this book. Even though there was no title yet (early 2017). I have faith.
