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, 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 is my first Karin Slaughter read. I thought the book had an interesting plot and I connected with the characters early on. It was hard to stop listening, so I finished the audio book pretty quickly. There was quite a bit of the "f" word, which I could have done without, but overall I liked the story, I like the "legal" subplots, so I will definitely try another book from this author. "

    " This is great story about people that have horrendous things happen to them and in the end, it works out ok - but what a crappy middle! I loved these characters, tough, scrappy, easy to see in my minds eye. Karin Slaughter is very descriptive being wordy and it doesn't feel like she types characters for the sake of bumping up her word count. I was spellbound and caught up in the surprise through to the end. This is a read I would recommend to any - again, just be prepared for a few gut-wrenching graphic scenes. "
