The Good Daughter – Karin Slaughter

Like many of the books that series writers branch out with, I initially passed this one up as it didn’t have my familiar, favorite characters in it. I should know better. I finally picked it up and of course, could not put it down. While the story was a bit different from what I’ve come to expect from Karin Slaughter, the storytelling was vintage Karin, and I found myself enthralled in Sam & Charlie’s story from start to finish.
Sam and Charlie are two young girls when tragedy strikes them unexpectedly one night in the form of the Culpepper brothers, coming to seek vengeance, presumably against their attorney father’s unpaid fees. The family is forever altered, leaving the sisters more strangers than anything, each dealing with their demons from that violent night in their own way. Many years later, another inexplicable tragedy occurs, with Charlie unexpectedly a witness, bringing the sisters back together to save their father, right a wrong, and to finally put their own demons to rest. It’s hard to say more than that without providing spoilers to the events of the book, but it’s vintage Slaughter, at her best, as always!!
