Sisters. Strangers. Survivors. 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. Powerful, poignant, and utterly gripping, packed with indelible characters and unforgettable twists, Pretty Girls is a masterful novel from one of the finest writers working today. Included with this gripping thriller is Karin Slaughter's chilling short story "Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes."
Fantastic. No words can describe how terrifying this book was. I could not stop listening. I am going to pick up more of her works.
I've read all of Karin Slaughter's books, and this one continues her tradition of compelling, engrossing, storytelling. The twenty hours flew by - I could not stop listening!
Overly drawn out
This book is ridiculously drawn out. Would have been great if they ended after part 3 or 4.... The last hours, I just kept thinking of what more can they add into this story to make it any less believable. The first part was good.....
