The Good Daughter

The Good Daughter

Author: Karin Slaughter Format: Paperback Release Date: 03/05/2018

Gosh, what a story this is, dramatic, powerful, and so incredibly addictive. The Good Daughter is a standalone novel from Karin Slaughter. 28 years ago, as murder tore apart their family in a small town in North Georgia, one girl fled while the other stayed behind; in 2017 another act of violence threatens the family once more. From the very first page my whole attention was captured and kept prisoner until I had reached the end, and even now my thoughts still pop and burn. We start in 1989, and within a short time I found my body tensing, I was almost in fight or flight mode myself. I couldn't stop reading, each sentence branded my minds eye, and I could clearly see the drama as it unfolded in front of me. This really is clever writing, dots start to join up, creating a sinuous, convincing storyline. Even if thoughts of suspicion are already present, the impact of what is to come still breaks with intensity. The Good Daughter is a breathtaking whammy of a read, pure escapism at its best, and I can highly recommend it!   

Books are great to read - but there are times, driving, commuting on a very very crowded train etc. when reading isn't always as easy as it should be. So, more and more publishers are now producing audio CD versions of their books.
