The Good Daughter (March 2019)

By Karin Slaughter

April 9, 2019

Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn’s happy smalltown life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home.  It left their mother dead and their father devastated.  And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.
