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.

    Loved this book. Had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. I couldn't stop listening. I listened in the car, in the bathtub, when I cooked, when I shopped...lol Wonderful job by Karin Slaughter keeping you guessing until the very end.

    I am so torn about how I feel after reading this book. It was very well written and kept me on my toes wanting to know more......but sometimes the "more" I got to know was way more than I expected. There were some pretty disturbing parts and she really goes into a lot of detail with it too. If this is the theme for her other books, I will definitely not be reading them.

    I got sucked in right away and used every spare minute to finish this book. Now I need to decide which one to read next! This was my first read of any of her books!
