Review

‘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, bestselling author of THE HELP

Praise for Karin Slaughter:

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have long been a fan of Karin Slaughter and her long running series of thrillers, and to be honest i almost abandoned this"stand alone" thriller after 100 pages, as i found it very repetitive and a bit lackluster in the initial stages. But knowing this terrific author i should have known better. Her ability to set, stage and execute a gripping story is very much in evidence in "The Good Daughter", and as complex as this book is, Ms Slaughter has crafted an immensely addictive and entertaining book. At almost 600 pages it is no light read, and if i have one criticism of this book (and hence only 4stars) it is that it could probably have been told in 500 pages or less... But that should not detract from the fact that "The Good Daughter" is a very good read...

It's funny how Karin Slaughter likes to write about sisters, this reminded me of the Grant County stories she started off with,and I thought I was very clever as I worked out quite early something about the shooting.However, I had no idea there were going to be two HUGE plot twists that I didn't see coming at all.I was reading the book,open mouthed as I realised stuff was unfolding that would turn everything on its head.
Around the middle of the book I was getting quite annoyed that we weren't getting on with solving the case,it seemed all about Sam and Charlie and their relationship with their father,but then I realised this was much more than a murder mystery,everything was intertwined and you can't have one without the other.
By the time I got to the end I was really enjoying the book,and I found the ending deeply satisfying.

Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint, one runs for her life but the other is left behind.

Twenty eight years ago Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy life in a small town had been torn apart after a terrifying attack on their family. It had left their mother dead and their father , a notorious defence lawyer, devastated and left the family broken with consumed secrets from that terrible tragic night. Twenty years on Charlie (As Charlotte is now known) has followed in her father's footsteps and become a lawyer. When violence comes again to Pikeville a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatised. Charlie is thrown into a nightmare, not only is she the first on the scene, but the case unleashes terrible memories she's spent so long trying to forget. The shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family won't stay buried forever.
This is a really good well written book, as usual by Karen Slaughter, twists and turns with lots of emotions boiling over. A fantastic thriller and a must for all Karen Slaughter fans. It's a rather large book, but it won't take took long to get through as it is so gripping you won't be able to put in down. Recommend this book to any thriller lovers.

I enjoy Karin Slaughter's Grant County novels, but I also enjoy it when she goes off piste and writes about other characters. It doesn't always work well - Coptown was a big disappointed - but The Good Daughter shows Slaughter at her very best. Sisters Charlotte and Samantha Quinn are torn apart both physically and emotionally by what happens one evening in their home. Almost 30 years later they are forced to confront the events of that night, their relationship with their father, and their relationship with each other, when there is a shooting at the local school. As always in Slaughter's books, things aren't quite what they appear.

This is a painful book. I found it very hard reading certain scenes, but that is because Slaughter writes so well. She pulls no punches, yet words everything gracefully and tenderly. I gobbled down this book and cannot wait for her next one.
