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 30 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.

Karin Slaughter has done it again!
As stated by the other reviewers, you can always count on Karin Slaughter for a good read/listen. Nor will I restate the synopsis of this book as I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I will say I was initially a little disappointed that this was not another book in the Will Trent series BUT I have to admit that this book is far from disappointing.
Right from the beginning you get a picture of a family that isn't quite right in their interactions. Following the murder of the wife/mother the surviving members loose their cohesion and it takes another 20 years for them to reunite.
This is a really good stand alone book and a great place to get acquainted with this author if you've never heard anything written by Slaughter before. She has such a good style of writing and knows how to pull a reader in. Her characters are very well developed and her storyline complex enough with out getting confusing or predictable. In this book she goes back and forth between the present and the past and wraps up with a solid and complete ending (no cliffhangers). I do hope that if this does become a series that it doesn't mean the end of the Will Trent/Sara Linton series.
Kathleen Early does a fantastic job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

painful to listen to
I'm not quite done with this "novel" yet, I'm not sure I'm going to. It's "painful" to keep listening to, because it keeps going in circles! over the same thing, then just as you think it's gonna move forward, it circles back and rewrites over what had already been said. Frustrating to say the least. this is the second book of this series, the first was short (4) hours and good, this one starts off completely confusing to the listener because it is completely different from the first. the story line is different, the relationships are different, and it's depressing, I almost thought I was out of sequence because it didn't make sense to me. it is the second in the sequence, but that's not much help. nothing I dislike more in a book, is when there is a time you think you're gonna get some information to make things come together, and it drops off the side of the earth! just frustrating to me, the narrator is good, it's about the only reason I'm still listening, maybe I want to see if this story is ever gonna come together and finally make sense! Done with the book, It's long, and I won't listen to it again.
