Sisters. Strangers. Survivors. More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that’s cruelly ripped open when Claire’s husband is killed. The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago . . . and uncovering the possibility of redemption, and revenge, where they least expect it. Powerful, poignant, and utterly gripping, packed with indelible characters and unforgettable twists, Pretty Girls is a masterful novel from one of the finest writers working today. Included with this gripping thriller is Karin Slaughter’s chilling short story “Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes.”

Sisters. Strangers. Survivors.

More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that’s cruelly ripped open when Claire’s husband is killed.

The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago . . . and uncovering the possibility of redemption, and revenge, where they least expect it.

Powerful, poignant, and utterly gripping, packed with indelible characters and unforgettable twists, Pretty Girls is a masterful novel from one of the finest writers working today.

Included with this gripping thriller is Karin Slaughter’s chilling short story “Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes.”

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A hold-your-breath pedal-to-the-metal thriller.” Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A hell-raising thriller…A genuinely exciting narrative driven by strong-willed female characters.” New York Times Book Review
“Scary enough to have you checking over your shoulder while you read late into the night, unable to put it down.” Amazon.com
“Narrator Kathleen Early…uses a hyper-edgy tone, keeping the ghastly descriptions understated, allowing the real horror to emerge. With stunning twists and unpredictable turns, Early’s performance of Slaughter’s chilling novel invents a new word for the OED: ‘unputdownable.’ Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Packs a heck of a wallop, and while it’s a powerful thriller, it’s also a deft look into a family forced to confront horrific tragedy. Slaughter’s longtime fans will be thrilled. New readers will be hooked on this twisted tale from page one.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Slaughter shreds your own nerves along with those of the sisters…Slaughter is so uncompromising in following her blood trails to the darkest places imaginable that she makes most of her high-wire competition look pallid, formulaic, or just plain fake.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“This is a complex story that one does not soon forget…It is certainly not for the feint of heart…The reader, Kathleen Early, gives a bravura performance, which greatly adds to the power of the novel.” Deadly Pleasures
“The fast pace, peppered liberally with shocks and revelations, pulls you in and doesn’t let go. This dark and twisted tale of one family’s devastation is not for the faint of heart, but readers who can take the violence are in for a super thrill ride. This may be the best Slaughter book yet.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
Pretty Girls…is a powerful examination of grief, and thriller fans will get more than their money’s worth.” Shelf Awareness
