About THE GOOD DAUGHTER: Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead, their father—Pikeville's notorious defense attorney— devastated, and their family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.  Now Charlie has followed in her father's footsteps to become a lawyer herself—the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again with a violent tragedy that leaves the whole town traumatized, Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it's a case that unleashes the terrible memories she's spent so long trying to suppress. Because the surprising truth about the crime which destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won't stay buried forever. Packed with Slaughter's trademark intensity, emotional depth, shocking twists and turns, and masterfully created characters, THE GOOD DAUGHTER is fiction at its best.
