Overview

An extraordinary novel of love and loss, redemption and revenge, from the New York Times bestselling author whose "characters, plot, and pacing are unrivaled" (Michael Connelly).

Sisters.

Strangers.

Survivors.

It's been more than twenty years since Claire and Lydia last spoke. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire; Lydia, a single mother dating an ex-con, struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the disappearance of their sister Julia two decades earlier and the shocking murder of Claire's husband brings the horror and heartbreak of the past roaring back into their lives.

The vanishing of a teenage girl and the killing of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: What could connect them? As they form a wary truce, the surviving sisters unearth the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago . . . and find the astonishing truth where they least expected it.

Powerful, poignant, and utterly gripping, packed with indelible characters and unforgettable plot twists, Pretty Girls is a masterful thriller to be read with white knuckles and a fast-beating heart."

Claire Scott, the heroine of this gripping standalone from bestseller Slaughter (Cop Town), thought she knew everything about her architect husband, Paul, but her posh Atlanta life is turned upside down when he’s fatally stabbed in an alley and she uncovers a series of nasty videos on his home computer. Paul’s dark side is what drove a wedge between Claire and her sister Lydia 18 years earlier, when Lydia accused Paul of attempted rape. At the time, Claire sided with Paul, and the sisters stopped speaking. The family was already splintered following the 1991 disappearance of Claire and Lydia’s older sister, 19-year-old Julia, who vanished near her University of Georgia dorm. Paul’s death brings Claire and Lydia back together as they begin peeling back the layers of everything that the meticulously organized Paul kept hidden. Chapters from the girls’ father’s journal, written to the missing Julia, form a poignant counterpoint to the chilling violence of this unsettling tale. Agent: Victoria Sanders, Victoria Sanders & Associates. (Sept.)
