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….

Critic Reviews

"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)

Suspense and entrigue

Great listen and very good story with many twists and guessing. I wasn’t crazy about the narration and I hated the blasphemy. I really battled to keep listening.....

What would have made The Good Daughter better?

More about the characters and less dwelling on the graphic details of the horrible event at the beginning of the book.

What was most disappointing about Karin Slaughter’s story?

I found it very depressing with a constant rehashing of the event at the beginning in graphic detail, without really going anywhere as a story.

What character would you cut from The Good Daughter?


Any additional comments?

I nearly abandoned this at several points, but it would then offer a glimmer of hope that it was actually going to develop, only to disappoint again.

Fairly repetitive in parts

What did you like best about The Good Daughter? What did you like least?

Was a good overall story, however the unnecessary repetition of chapters simply from a different person's perspective was just annoying. Also the long descriptions from the mother on certain things added absolutely nothing to the story line and just made you want to fast forward to get back to the proper story

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Ending was ok, was a bit predictable from early on in the book

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Cant' think of one

Could you see The Good Daughter being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
