Overview

From the critically acclaimed and New York Times bestselling master of suspense comes a stand-alone novel about family and belonging, justice and retribution, the decisions we make—and the choices that haunt us. Pretty Girls also includes the chilling short story “Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes.”

More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that’s cruelly ripped open when Claire’s husband is killed.

The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago … and uncovering the possibility of redemption—and revenge—where they least expect it.

“Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today…I’d follow her anywhere.”—Gillian Flynn, New York Times bestselling author, praise for the author

Just when you think you knew your spouse, and everything falls apart, you find out who he truly is. Good story but crazy, do your hear me. Paul an OCD freak married Claire. He faked his death and that's when all things hidden came to the light. Finds out old Paul had a whole secret life. He went around abducting pretty women torturing them, killing them, having sex with them all while recording it. He had a huge client list to include the police, the mayor and overseas contacts, that paid huge amounts to do the same. Claire had no idea. Paul raped his sister lydia and was present when his father killed their other sister, Julia. The said thing is the cop who killed their sister, was the ome over the case, and knew all along. The betrayal and foolery done in this book. Chile this book, had me on edge till the end. Whew, Karin Slaughter this one's a winner. #book40of2019 #bookworm #whatsnext #highlyrecommended #pleaseread
