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

  • Quite possibly the scariest book I’ve ever read (TRI3434)

    Do 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.
  • PRETTY GIRLS (Kcnjmg)

    This was an amazing book, written with so much feeling, couldn’t put it down....I never rate a book 5⭐️ but this definitely was ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Perfectly flawed (REJ 876)

    A 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.
  • Disturbingly twisted.. obsessed! (beechbud)

    I loved this book!! One of the most twisted pieces I’ve read that really captivated my attention.. as soo. As I finished I sent it to all of my closest friends (aka the crazy ones)
  • WOW! Terrific read (A weird sister)

    I couldn’t put this book down. It’s nice for victims to serve justice
  • So twisted but so good (shylar16)

    Need another book exactly like this 😍
  • Way too dark and gruesome (AstronautWannabe)

    So, so dark. It was horrible and I wish I could un-read it.
  • Pretty Girls (dhlgp)

    Did not like this book at all. Way too graphic and disturbing.
  • Heartbreakingly wonderful (rickysbud)

    Not 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.
  • Disturbing. Twisted. LOVE! (britspradlin)

    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.

    Good Book. I never thought I'd enjoy another of her books without her usual cast of characters in them, but I must admit that this was a great story & a fast read; couldn't put it down at times. The topic may be a bit dark for some, but I highly recommend this book.

    Awesome Read. First time reading Karen Slaughter. Took a chance on this one after running out of Eric Jerome Dickey again! (Sigh) Pretty Girls was an exciting, exhilarating and thoroughly enjoyable read. Couldn't put it down. Now I have two favorite authors. 😊

    Good story, slow pace, very graphic. First, it is important to know that this book features a lot of graphic violence against women - detailed descriptions of rape and murder. Had I read this book rather than listened to the audiobook I would have definitely chosen to skim those (numerous) sections. Next, while I thought this was a good concept I found the pacing rather slow and labored. Also, the last few chapters seem to be an attempt to wrap up a lot of loose threads. While it was a good concept, I'm not sure it was worth the 20 hour investment.

    2 - 3 stars. The first third (to half) of this book is really good, and really intriguing. Everything after the 'major plot twist', the bottom falls out. Some of it is just ridiculous, and I found it very hard to believe that anyone would react, or act, in the way these women do toward the end of the novel (mainly, Claire). Because I don't want to reveal the novel's secrets, suffice it to say, it's an interesting, and very dark story, but you will need to suspend with emotional rationality while reading.

    Pathetic. The first few chapters are fine. Then the story descends into an inane plot from which it never recovers. Don't waste your time or money

    Not her best!. I have always looked forward to Karin Slaughter books because of the mystery, the characters, the plots. But this one was too disgusting and predictable. Great story about the love between sisters!
