Fine stand-alone thriller - well worth a look

The Good Daughter: A Novel - Karin Slaughter

This is the first Karin Slaughter book that I've read and I was pleasantly surprised. The plot deals with a pair of sisters who, after an awful tragedy in their lives 23 years earlier, find themselves together again in North Georgia having to deal with a school shooting incident which brings back memories of  what they went through as teenagers. They learn a lot about themselves and each other while solving the case through their legal background and their astute intelligence.
Characterization is key in this slow boiler of a thriller as the events are fairly straight-forward. The writing is fluid and engaging and the reader is not snowed under my too much description. This novel is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a good yarn and an interesting mystery novel
