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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Good Daughter is Karin Slaughter’s most ambitious, most emotional, and best novel. So far, anyway.” James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Raw, powerful, and utterly gripping—yet written with a tenderness and empathy that will break your heart.” Kathryn Stockett, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“It is Karin Slaughter at her very best.” Huffington Post
“The author is sharply attuned with each of her characters who are unfailingly interesting and believable…Slaughter’s assured writing, her solid plotting with outstanding twists and intense characterizations make The Good Daughter a standout in a career highlighted by several superb novels.” Washington Post
“Narrator Kathleen Early brings to life Slaughter’s compelling story…Using pitch, tone, and pace, Early contrasts the personalities of the two sisters…She excels at projecting the larger-than-life character of their father, Rusty…[and] selectively uses regional accents to enliven an array of secondary characters. Listeners will be totally engaged…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Slaughter’s work is like a professional athlete coming to the playground to show the kids how it’s done. With her themes, tensions, and metaphors, she has a talent for classic literature that is often missing in recent fiction.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Early easily handles a wide range of characters, from tight-voiced, small-minded, crusty law-enforcement types to the contrasting voices for sisters Charlotte and Samantha…The narration of the children, a difficult task especially when they recall being brutalized, is all too convincingly delivered in indelible nightmare scenes.” Booklist (starred audio review)
“Slaughter is a master of her craft. Her characters—even the secondary ones—are deep and multifaceted, and here, the tightly packed story unfolds at a perfect pace that leaves readers frantically turning pages.” Booklist (starred review)
“It’s hard to think of any writer since Flannery O’Connor, referenced at several key moments here, who’s succeeded as consistently as Slaughter at using horrific violence to evoke pity and terror. Whether she’s extending her franchise or creating stand-alones like this, she really does make your hair stand on end.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Though this is a crime novel, suspenseful and thrilling in every way, at its heart it is an exploration of family and the ties that persist through the most difficult moments. As with Val McDermid, Denise Mina, and Tana French, Slaughter delves into our darkest selves to reveal what is truly human.” Library Journal
“Gripping…Slaughter keeps the twists coming.” Publishers Weekly
“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, author of Love You Dead
