The #1 internationally bestselling author returns with a new novel in the vein of the New York Times bestsellers Pretty Girls and The Good Daughter—a story even more electrifying, provocative, and suspenseful than anything she’s written before.
What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all . . . ?
Andrea Cooper knows everything about her mother Laura. She’s knows she’s spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Gullaway Island; she knows she’s never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she’s never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don’t we?
But all that changes when a Saturday afternoon trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years she’s been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one will ever find her. But now she’s been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again.
Twenty-four hours later Laura is in the hospital, shot by an intruder who’s spent thirty years trying to track her down and discover what she knows. Andrea is on a desperate journey following the breadcrumbs of her mother’s past. And if she can’t uncover the secrets hidden there, there may be no future for either one of them. . . .

Don’t waste your time 15
Waste of time....... 15
I did enjoy this book! Would recommend. I would have given it 5 stars, but I had some problems with a few of the characters. Had trouble fully engaging with a main character. That being said, no one can spin a story like Ms. Slaughter! No one can do “broken” and marginalized like the author either. 45
My gosh, what a ride. This book kept me up. I had to read it to the end. This is truly Karin Slaughter’s best yet, I think. I like them all but this one had me going until the end. Wow! A must read. 55
A home away from home! 55
I honestly don’t know how she does it but Karin Slaughter has outdone herself again. Character development, plot lines and a really good story! My only criticism is I wish she wrote faster! I read in a week what it takes her a year to research and write. 55
This was my first Slaughter novel and I absolutely LOVED it. I read THE GOOD DAUGHTER right after and am now addicted to her work!! Highly recommend. 55
