Die gute Tochter
Die gute Tochter: Psychothriller - Karin Slaughter,Fred Kinzel


Do, 03.08.2017





16,99 € Ebook

19,99 € Gebundene Ausgabe

Zum Buch: https://www.harpercollins.de/buecher/krimis-thriller/die-gute-tochter



"Lauf!", fleht ihre große Schwester Samantha. Mit vorgehaltener Waffe treiben zwei maskierte Männer Charlotte und sie an den Waldrand. "Lauf weg!" Und Charlie läuft. An diesem Tag. Und danach ihr ganzes Leben. Sie ist getrieben von den Erinnerungen an jene grauenvolle Attacke in ihrer Kindheit. Die blutigen Knochen ihrer erschossenen Mutter. Die Todesangst ihrer Schwester. Das Keuchen ihres Verfolgers. 


Als Töchter eines berüchtigten Anwalts waren sie stets die Verstoßenen, die Gehetzten. 28 Jahre später ist Charlie selbst erfolgreiche Anwältin. Als sie Zeugin einer weiteren brutalen Bluttat wird, holt ihre Geschichte sie ganz ungeahnt ein.


Meine Meinung:


Ich bin ja seit der Sara Linton Reihe ein Fan von Karin Slaughter und habe mich daher sehr gefreut, dass wieder ein neues Buch der Autorin herausgekommen ist. Freundlicherweise wurde mir dieses als Ebook von Netgalley zu Rezensionszwecken zur Verfügung gestellt. 


Der Einstieg ist mir sehr gut gelungen, es fängt gleich spannend an mit dem Überfall auf Charlie, Samantha und deren Mutter Gemma. Dies ist vor 28 Jahren geschehen. 


Dann wechselt die Geschichte in die Gegenwart, in der Charlie, die ja damals flüchten konnte, wieder Zeugin einer brutalen Bluttat wird.


Der Anfang war dadurch sehr spannend, zum Ende hin war es auch sehr interessant gemacht, aber in der Mitte hatte das Buch aufgrund seiner 608 Seiten doch einige Längen. Da hätten weniger Seiten meiner Meinung nach dem Buch gut getan. 


Zum Ende hin war es sehr interessant gemacht, da es bei der Auflösung doch einige überraschende Wendungen gab. 


Ich würde das Buch als Familientragödie mit Thrillerelementen beschreiben, die tiefgründig und mit vielen Emotionen verbunden ist. 


Die Vergangenheit wurde gekonnt mit der Gegenwart verknüpft, ich fand beide Zeitfenster sehr interessant. 


Alles in allem kann ich  hier eine klare Kauf- und Leseempfehlung für das neue Werk von Karin Slaughter aussprechen. Mir hat dieses Buch sehr gut gefallen. Von mir bekommt das Buch sehr gute 4,5 Sterne.

The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter
The Good Daughter - Karin Slaughter

Another hit in my books!
Karin Slaughter is such a good writer. She has a way of drawing me deep into the story. I wonder about them, the characters, and where it's going to go. Will they make it out? Will they get justice? I get invested.
That's good story-telling.
I like the pace of this book, it was steady, it kept me reading.
I wasn't always pleased with the outcome though. A couple of moments I was like, 'aw, man!!', but in all sincerity, it worked too.
If you haven't read anything by her, you must! She is a great thriller writer!

The Good Daughter, Karin Slaughter
The Good Daughter - Karin Slaughter

This was a tough book to read and not for the faint of heart. I received this book for free and voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* rating. It was hard to put down and kept me up late into the morning a couple of days. This whole story winds around a brutal murder and attempted murders of one family. This is not for the under 18 readers and may be hard to sleep after parts of it. This author touched a lot of areas of healing for this family. It is not a story that will easily be forgotten and you may not want to read it at night. You might want to keep some tissue close by also.

Karin Slaughter brilliant as always
The Good Daughter - Karin Slaughter

Yet another wonderful, well crafted, and presented story from Karin Slaughter which sees her departing from her regular Atlanta duo Well Trent (Georgia Bureau of Investigation special agent) and Dr Sarah Linton. In this one off novel we are introduced to the Quinns; Rusty, Gamma, and their two daughters Sam and Charlotte (Charlie) The story is told over two timelines, one set 28 years before the other. One afternoon Zack Culpepper and an accomplish invade the Quinn home where a violent and outrageous event occurs, an event that will have long lasting and damaging repercussions. Moving forward in time to the present somewhat unbelievably another brutal killing occurs, at the local school where Charlie Quinn has attended visiting her lover Mason Huckabee a regrettable one night stand.


What the author excels at his her deep understanding and betrayal of a family in crisis and their attempt to survive. Sam, although badly damaged from the Culpepper attack has managed to map out a career as a patent lawyer in New York but immediately comes to the aid of her younger sister following the school shootings. Dad Rusty is adored by them both even though his chosen occupation as a defence attorney often sees him defending the most abhorrent members of society and indeed the historical Culpeper incident was a direct result of his chosen career.


This is a novel full of mystery, ambition and emotion. It is not so much the storyline that is of importance but rather the depiction of deeply flawed and traumatized characters. At its heart is the love and need of friendship and family and how against all the evil that is present today it is possible not only to survive but to accept the unfolding of life's events however good or bad they may be. Many thanks to the publisher HarperCollins for a gratis copy in exchange for an honest review and that is what I have written.

The Good Daughter - Karin Slaughter




NO. NO. NO. The girls…


Secrets do not stay buried. The past catches up with you.



Twenty eight years later and the memories of the past are brought back to Charlotte. Charlie is a pit bull. She doesn’t run from danger…she runs toward it.

WOW Karin, from ones horror to another. People can turn into rabid dogs, unable or unwilling to control themselves. The bad guys…deserve to be buried under the jail, wiped off the face of the earth.


OMG. This book is terrifying. My mistrust of police officers is reinforced after reading this up close look at corruption in law.


The Good Daughter is a wickedly evil look into the human psyche and all its ugliness…Yet…some characters goodness will shine through.


I was so enraged in the first seventy pages…so into the book, that even though I went on a road trip and it wasn’t convenient to take notes, I couldn’t stop reading.


I laughed, I cried, I hated, and I loved.


I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter.
