"Lauf!", fleht ihre große Schwester Samantha. Mit vorgehaltener Waffe treiben zwei maskierte Männer Charlotte und sie an den Waldrand. "Lauf weg!" Und Charlie läuft. An diesem Tag. Und danach ihr ganzes Leben. Sie ist getrieben von den Erinnerungen an jene grauenvolle Attacke in ihrer Kindheit. Die blutigen Knochen ihrer erschossenen Mutter. Die Todesangst ihrer Schwester. Das Keuchen ihres Verfolgers. Als Töchter eines berüchtigten Anwalts waren sie stets die Verstoßenen, die Gehetzten. 28 Jahre später ist Charlie selbst erfolgreiche Anwältin. Als sie Zeugin einer weiteren brutalen Bluttat wird, holt ihre Geschichte sie ganz ungeahnt ein. "Die gute Tochter" ist ein Meisterwerk psychologischer Spannung. Nie ist es Karin Slaughter besser gelungen, ihren Figuren bis tief in die Seele zu schauen und jede Einzelne mit Schuld und Leid gleichermaßen zu belegen. "Die dunkle Vergangenheit ist stets gegenwärtig in diesem äußerst schaurigen Thriller. Mit Feingefühl und Geschick fesselt Karin Slaughter ihre Leser von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite." Camilla Läckberg "Eine großartige Autorin auf dem Zenit ihres Schaffens. Karin Slaughter zeigt auf nervenzerfetzende, atemberaubende und fesselnde Weise, was sie kann." Peter James "Karin Slaughter ist die gefeiertste Autorin von Spannungsunterhaltung. Aber Die gute Tochter ist ihr ambitioniertester, ihr emotionalster - ihr bester Roman. Zumindest bis heute." James Patterson "Es ist einfach das beste Buch, das man dieses Jahr lesen kann. Ehrlich, kraftvoll und wahnsinnig packend - und trotzdem mit einer Sanftheit und Empathie verfasst, die einem das Herz bricht." Kathryn Stockett "Die Brutalität wird durch ihre plastische Darstellung körperlich spürbar, das Leiden überträgt sich auf den Leser." (Hamburger Abendblatt) "Aber es sind nicht nur die sichtbaren Vorgänge und Handlungen von guten oder schlechten Individuen, die die (...) Autorin penibel genau beschreibt. Es sind vor allem die inneren, die seelischen Abläufe, die überzeugen." (SHZ) "Das alles schildert Slaughter mit unglaublicher Wucht und einem Einfühlungsvermögen, das jedem Psychotherapeuten zu wünschen wäre." (SVZ) "Die aktuelle Geschichte um die Quinns ist eine Südstaaten-Saga der besonderen Art, von der ihr nicht weniger erfolgreiche Kollege James Patterson sagt, sie sei ‚ihr ambitioniertester, ihr emotionalster, ihr bester Roman. Zumindest bis heute‘." (Focus Online) "Die Autorin hat hier ein ausgezeichnetes Buch vorgelegt, dass mich von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite gefesselt hat." (Krimi-Couch.de) "Es gibt Bücher, bei denen man das Atmen vergisst. Die Romane der amerikanischen Schriftstellerin gehören dazu. So auch dieser Pageturner. (...) Karin Slaughter versteht es meisterhaft, glaubwürdige Charaktere zu erschaffen und ihre Leser fortwährend zu überraschen." (Lebensart) "Atmosphärisch dichter Thriller über die sozialen Gespinste einer Kleinstadt, psychologisch sehr stimmig, mit vielen Schichten und Überraschungen." (Bayrischer Rundfunk)
