Publisher's Summary

The stunning new stand-alone audiobook, with a chilling edge of psychological suspense, from the number one best-selling 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 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 defence 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 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 30 years ago won't stay buried forever....

What the Critics Say

"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, best-selling author of The Help)

    "Disappointed"

    I'm a diehard fan of Karin Slaughter and was so excited to listen to her latest offering. However, this book left me rather disappointed. It is by no means up to her usual gripping standards - I in fact found it rather dull and tedious. The narrator did nothing to help matters either. I don't like being negative but this really wasn't great.

    "Great Read"

    Karin Slaughter is the only author I buy the day it hits the shelf.
    This is a very satisfying stand alone story. Very well articulated and has lots of depth and layers.
    Recommended.

    "Brilliant!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story just flowed from beginning to end. I was hooked from page one. Finished in just two sittings. Narration was great and the characters were really brought to life. So far removed from the authors usual detective crime novels, but just as compelling. Fabulous!
