Staff Reviews

Charlotte and Samantha witness the brutal shooting of their mother by Zach Culpepper, a client of their father, Rusty Quinn, who is a notorious defense attorney in the southern town of Pikesville. Zach and his partner in crime wear ski masks but the girls recognize Zach’s voice and he calls the second man, who shoots Samantha, “brother.” Sam survives the shot to the head but does not remember the incident, leaving Charlie as the key witness. Twenty-eight years later, Charlie is an attorney in Pikesville and witnesses another horrific crime: a school shooting that leaves the principal and a small girl dead at the hands of another student. The incident unleashes all the dreadful memories that Charlie has been suppressing and triggers a string of events that twist and turn to result in an intense psychological thriller. Karin Slaughter, once again, captivated and entertained me with her unique genius.

The stunning new novel from the international #1 bestselling author -- a searing, spellbinding blend of cold-case thriller and psychological suspense.

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 defense attorney -- devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.

Twenty-eight years later, and 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 thirty 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.
