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.

Loved it! 55
Great book all the way through. 55
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! 35
Kept me intrigued the entire time, loved every word! 55
Well written but a horrible subject to write about. Quite disturbing 35
Not for the faint of heart, but what a suspenseful read! I didn't want to put this book down. Some parts were hard to read, so I skipped over them. Great thriller! 55
Amazing book but highly disturbingb 45
Suspenseful, kept me guessing, but too graphic and too psychotic of a plot to recommend to others. 35
Excellent book. Great read. Captivating. 55
Couldn’t finish this mess. 15
I got sucked in right away and used every spare minute to finish this book. Now I need to decide which one to read next! This was my first read of any of her books! 55
Just read it. Keeps you on the edge of your seat and breaks your heart. However, this is not the book you recommend to your mother because she may have a heart attack. Truly loved reading this book and the very last chapter made me cry. Hauntingly beautiful 55
I thought I would enjoy this book but the characters were clichés and stereotypical. The pace of the story picked up a bit two thirds of the way into the book. But it was still a tedious read. 25
I couldn't put this book down!!! 55
This recording is so damaged that it needs to be thrown away, not sold. There are parts so damaged you can't even hear the story. The story is good although it seems to drag on too long 35
Gripping, suspenseful, full of twists and turns I didnot see coming. Disturbing plot, extremely well written, well developed characters. Listened to it on a road trip and had difficulty getting out of the car! 55
Lots of twists and turns. I hate when books are compared to Gone Girl or Girl on The Train and they don't deliver the same suspense, but this book delivered. 55
Certainly page-turning; well written, psychological mystery for 2016. Looked forward to picking it up the next day, but certainly had some uncomfortable scenes-maybe made more difficult by having one little girl at home. I would recommend with some caution if you are faint of heart. 45
I listened to the unabridged audiobook during a long road trip. It started out interestingly enough, but descended into graphic, ridiculously implausible scenarios. It was disgusting and it actually became tiresome and boring. I would give it zero stars but it won't let me post without at least one. 15
First read of this author. Suspenseful story started slowly; difficult to follow plot and characters. But, staying with the book pays big dividends as the author builds intrigue and suspense to a very satisfying ending. Stay with the novel and you'll be as thrilled as I was. 45
