Editorial 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, author of Love You Dead

''Karin Slaughter has -- by far -- the best name of all of us mystery novelists…
The Good Daughter is Karin Slaughter's most ambitious, most emotional, and best novel. So far, anyway.'' --James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author

''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, #1
New York Times bestselling author

''It's hard to think of any writer since Flannery O'Connor, referenced at several key moments here, who's succeeded as consistently as Slaughter at using horrific violence to evoke pity and terror. Whether she's extending her franchise or creating stand-alones like this, she really does make your hair stand on end.'' --
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''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)

''If you're into mystery thrillers, then you're into Karin Slaughter.''

Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award. Narrator Kathleen Early brings to life Slaughter's compelling story…Using pitch, tone, and pace, Early contrasts the personalities of the two sisters…She excels at projecting the larger-than-life character of their father, Rusty…[and] selectively uses regional accents to enliven an array of secondary characters. Listeners will be totally engaged with this account of a family and challenged to consider that there are many sides to a story.'' --AudioFile

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful writing and twisty plotting
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on January 25, 2019
The story begins with a look back in time as we discover the devastating events that shaped the lives of two sisters, Samantha and Charlotte Quinn, fifteen and thirteen respectively. Their father, Rusty Quinn, is a defence lawyer who takes on very controversial cases, representing murderers and rapists. This doesn’t sit well with many people and death threats are routine. After an accused rapist was acquitted and the victim killed herself the family have been ostracised making life at school very difficult for Charlie and Samantha. The family house was petrol bombed as a result and burned to the ground, all their possessions destroyed. Rusty, his wife Gamma and the two girls moved into a ramshackle farmhouse that belonged to an old farmer before he died.

One night of unimaginable violence changed their lives irrevocably. Two masked men forced their way into the farmhouse, leaving the girls’ mother dead, Charlotte and Samantha traumatised and Rusty shattered.

The story is set in Pikeville, Georgia and twenty-eight years after the tragedy, Charlotte has followed in her father’s footsteps as a defence lawyer, although she has no intention of representing the same kind of people her father does. But once again Charlotte is exposed to horrific violence when she witnesses a shooting which brings the horror of past events to the fore, highlighting just how much those events are still affecting the sisters. Charlie and Sam haven’t spoken in years, neither have Rusty and Sam and Charlie’s marriage is at stake. Emotional pain, secrets, anger, all suppressed for so long, have to be dealt with before either can learn to love, forgive and move on.

Karin Slaughter has delivered a very dark, emotional and powerful story, peopled with complex but realistic personalities who drive the plot. The violence Samantha and Charlotte suffered as teens is recounted during the course of the narrative, and although in part it’s a repetition, it’s necessary for the story. Not everything is as it seems with accounts that differ, and those passages serve to deepen the characterisations and draw the reader, or in this case listener, in even more. Both timelines are woven together as the story progresses. The intricate and tangled relationships are compelling, an integral part of the story, and as the layers are peeled away, buried secrets are revealed.

Wonderful writing and twisty plotting, and in the main the fascinating characters are superbly crafted and developed. An intense and gripping story with an unexpected conclusion. A word of warning – the vivid and graphic imagery may not be for the faint hearted!

Susie James’ narration is spot on, her characterisations are distinct and enhance the emotions, tension and drama of the family’s complicated dynamics.
