Amazon Review

More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged 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.


Well now... I remember back a long time ago when I read The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield and have some people say they had to put the book down and couldn't read it because it was to realistic in it's descriptions of some pretty nasty things.  Moving on to Pretty Girls... holy cow! even I had a hard time with parts of the descriptions in this book.. and yet I had to know how it would turn out!  Happily I did!

I sometimes wonder where authors who write these books get their material from.  And of course a good writer  will make it seem all to real!  This Karin Slaughter managed to do very well indeed!

I read the first book in one of her series. I quite liked it but there were horrific scenes of mutilated bodies! My God... So I didn't read any more. Good murder mystery though if my addled memory serves. LOL

Like Cath, I read the first book in one of her series too. And I quite enjoyed it. Started reading another but got annoyed with the way she talked about mental illness. Glad you enjoyed this one! I might have to give her another go sometime, you know along with all the other thousands of books I say that about. :P
