Summary

The fantastic prequel to The Good Daughter, the stunning new stand-alone from the number one best-selling author of the Will Trent and Grant County series.

Protecting someone always comes at a cost.

At the age of 13, Charlie Quinn’s childhood came to an abrupt and devastating end. Two men, with a grudge against her lawyer father, broke into her home - and after that shocking night, Charlie's world was never the same.

Now a lawyer herself, Charlie has made it her mission to defend those with no one else to turn to. So when Flora Faulkner, a motherless teen, begs for help, Charlie is reminded of her own past and is powerless to say no.

But honour-student Flora is in far deeper trouble than Charlie could ever have anticipated. Soon she must ask herself: how far should she go to protect her client? And can she truly believe everything she is being told?

Too short

I didn't realize this was only 4 hours, so I was very disappointed when it ended just as I was getting into it. Loved The Good Daughter and would have loved this as well but just felt like a beginning of a book to me.

Left me wanting more!

I've become addicted to Karin Slaughter's books since discovering her on Audible. I really enjoyed "The Good Daughter", the crafting of the story, the plot lines, the characters, everything drew me in. I was thrilled to come across the prequel, but like another reviewer mentioned previously, it was too short. Too short in that I was so disappointed that it was over so soon. I thought I'd get at least another 10-15 chapters, that there would be more story to enjoy. That said, apart from not wanting it to end, the book doesn't disappoint. Karin Slaughter excellence as usual.

Way too short

I was looking forward to this prequel to The Good Daughter ... Charlie and Ben, Rusty and the whole cast were well drawn, but this could have easily been a side-plot to a bigger tale. Disappointed that I couldn't immerse myself in it for longer.
