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.

Pretty Girls (Karin Slaughter) Book Reviews

Thought provoking.It was gripping toward the middle to the ending! God Bless those that have lost children way too soon..Score: 4/5

Suddenly graphic, but doesn’t get any worseReally well written book! Tread carefully, because there’s graphic descriptions of extreme sexual violence towards women in this book. The first instance comes out of no where, but if you can handle the first time it’s described, it really doesn’t get worse as the book goes on. I really enjoyed this book and will be reading more from this author!.Score: 5/5

Too graphicSuspenseful, kept me guessing, but too graphic and too psychotic of a plot to recommend to others..Score: 3/5

Incredible Thriller But Also Incredible ViolenceThis book was an absolute page turner. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next. Really well written and just an awesome thriller. BUT, if you’re at all uneasy with violence against women, this is not a book for you. The depictions the author laid out were vivid, graphic and gut-wrenching. Very disturbing-you’ll need a strong stomachs to not let some of the subject matter affect you..Score: 4/5

I heard it as audiobook!This was so captivating to listen too, as audio is 20 hours really more like 17 hours bc the last 2 hours are another book included is this book(prequel). It was a thriller in the sense that u see one character really have character wake up..Score: 5/5

Not for the faint of heartCaptivating and well written, but definitely a dark book. I have no regrets about reading it, but there were points where I knew I might put it down and never pick it back up if it got any darker..Score: 4/5

Perfectly flawedA face paced and exciting read. Graphic, yes. Heart breaking, yes. But also an excellent representation of true character and how merciless people can really be. SPOILER: My only issue was Paul’s “fake death”, it’s unbelievability cheapened the otherwise great storyline..Score: 4/5

Too gruesomeStory entertaining for the most part but details too gruesome..Score: 2/5

Loved it!Kept me intrigued the entire time, loved every word!.Score: 5/5

Spoilers!Very good book although I would change one thing. The murder in the book dies and in my head it would have been better had Claire outsmarted him, tortured him and instead of killing him he gets arrested and spends his life in jail. I wanted him to comment on how what she did (the fire/gun/surprised him with the burner phone location) was unexpected and how she always kept him guessing and that’s why she was different and he really did love her. Overall a very good book with some twists and things I couldn’t guess. I wish there was a bit of an unspoken romance between Claire and the FBI agent also. I wanted him to come off as a bit of a safe place or savior and his position was sort of unclear until the end. I wanted her to still not trust him but for him to be trustworthy to the reader..Score: 5/5

Pretty girls Karin slaughterI could not put this book down! I have read every one of her books, this is my favorite!.Score: 5/5

It’s really not that gory…This is a decent novel. Lots of twists; some very predictable, some that really throw you off. As far as the explicit content, it did not bother me at all. Maybe I’m extremely desensitized, but I didn’t read anything that really merited the reviews of how disturbing the descriptions are. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the most stomach churning gore, I’d say it’s about a 4. Some cons are, the pacing in the first 150-200 pages is like trudging thru mud and took some effort to stay interested, but then it starts unfolding fast after that. And it’s not the most original storyline. Otherwise, it’s fine..Score: 4/5

Disturbing. Twisted. LOVE!Absolute love for this book. Idk if it’s the disturbance of it or the twisted and flawed characters but I love this book. If anyone asks what they should read, this is always my go to book. I love the reactions I receive from people who read it..Score: 5/5

Disturbing...Very well written but I honestly did not feel comfortable reading before bed because of the graphic details. This book literally kept me awake all night!.Score: 3/5

Page turner!This novel was very suspenseful and unpredictable and kept me on the edge of my seat until the end..Score: 5/5

Graphic yes, disturbing yes, but that’s not why the low review.The low review is because the writing is just not good. The story is absurdly outlandish and so CSI: Miami sequel. Cheap thriller I would have expected to see on the free reads list. I just couldn’t take the writing seriously. It was way too corny and cheap if you know what I mean. She could have gone so many routes with this story and written something with substance. Instead I got something with a James Bond style villain. Stupid read..Score: 2/5

Pretty GirlsDid not like this book at all. Way too graphic and disturbing..Score: 1/5

Quite possibly the scariest book I’ve ever readDo not read this book if you can’t handle a horrifying psycho thriller that details rape, torture, and murder. It is suspenseful and a page turner, but only to find yourself left with an eerie, uneasy feeling. I was able to finish the book, but I probably could have gone through life without reading it..Score: 2/5

Suspenseful!!!Great read! I could not put it down. The story kept me wanting to read just one more chapter and then just one more chapter. I was disturbed by the violence halfway through the book, and wanted to stop reading, but I wanted to find out what would happen in the end for retribution, so I kept reading. I loved the mystery and suspense of the story. The characters were believable. It was my first read by Karin Slaughter. Well done. Great job!.Score: 5/5

Heartbreakingly wonderfulNot for the faint of heart, but worth the disturbance. If you’ve lost a family member in a traumatic way it grips you from understanding the characters pain and longing to know the truth..Score: 5/5

FanfriggentasticFinally, a novel that ripped me out of my reality. This story sucked me into a world of horror, so real I could not only picture it in my mind but feel through my skin and taste in my mouth. Once I had it figured out I was violently jolted sideways into another direction. Emotionally drained I am left contemplating life, lost life, and trying to figure out why I'm bawling. Wow!!!.Score: 5/5
