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 thirty years ago won't stay buried for ever ...

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The author is sharply attuned with each of her characters who are unfailingly interesting and believable…Slaughter’s assured writing, her solid plotting with outstanding twists and intense characterizations make The Good Daughter a standout in a career highlighted by several superb novels.” Washington Post
“It is Karin Slaughter at her very best.” Huffington Post
“Slaughter is a master of her craft. Her characters—even the secondary ones—are deep and multifaceted, and here, the tightly packed story unfolds at a perfect pace that leaves readers frantically turning pages.” Booklist (starred review)
“Though this is a crime novel, suspenseful and thrilling in every way, at its heart it is an exploration of family and the ties that persist through the most difficult moments. As with Val McDermid, Denise Mina, and Tana French, Slaughter delves into our darkest selves to reveal what is truly human.” Library Journal
“Gripping…Slaughter keeps the twists coming.” Publishers Weekly
