"Lauf!", fleht ihre große Schwester Samantha. Mit vorgehaltener Waffe treiben zwei maskierte Männer Charlotte und sie an den Waldrand. "Lauf weg!" Und Charlie läuft. An diesem Tag. Und danach ihr ganzes Leben. Sie ist getrieben von den Erinnerungen an jene grauenvolle Attacke in ihrer Kindheit. Die blutigen Knochen ihrer erschossenen Mutter. Die Todesangst ihrer Schwester. Das Keuchen ihres Verfolgers. Als Töchter eines berüchtigten Anwalts waren sie stets die Verstoßenen, die Gehetzten. 28 Jahre später ist Charlie selbst erfolgreiche Anwältin. Als sie Zeugin einer weiteren brutalen Bluttat wird, holt ihre Geschichte sie ganz ungeahnt ein. "Die gute Tochter" ist ein Meisterwerk psychologischer Spannung. Nie ist es Karin Slaughter besser gelungen, ihren Figuren bis tief in die Seele zu schauen und jede Einzelne mit Schuld und Leid gleichermaßen zu belegen. "Die dunkle Vergangenheit ist stets gegenwärtig in diesem äußerst schaurigen Thriller. Mit Feingefühl und Geschick fesselt Karin Slaughter ihre Leser von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite." Camilla Läckberg "Eine großartige Autorin auf dem Zenit ihres Schaffens. Karin Slaughter zeigt auf nervenzerfetzende, atemberaubende und fesselnde Weise, was sie kann." Peter James "Karin Slaughter ist die gefeiertste Autorin von Spannungsunterhaltung. Aber Die gute Tochter ist ihr ambitioniertester, ihr emotionalster - ihr bester Roman. Zumindest bis heute." James Patterson "Es ist einfach das beste Buch, das man dieses Jahr lesen kann. Ehrlich, kraftvoll und wahnsinnig packend - und trotzdem mit einer Sanftheit und Empathie verfasst, die einem das Herz bricht." Kathryn Stockett "Die Brutalität wird durch ihre plastische Darstellung körperlich spürbar, das Leiden überträgt sich auf den Leser." (Hamburger Abendblatt) "Aber es sind nicht nur die sichtbaren Vorgänge und Handlungen von guten oder schlechten Individuen, die die (...) Autorin penibel genau beschreibt. Es sind vor allem die inneren, die seelischen Abläufe, die überzeugen." (SHZ) "Das alles schildert Slaughter mit unglaublicher Wucht und einem Einfühlungsvermögen, das jedem Psychotherapeuten zu wünschen wäre." (SVZ) "Die aktuelle Geschichte um die Quinns ist eine Südstaaten-Saga der besonderen Art, von der ihr nicht weniger erfolgreiche Kollege James Patterson sagt, sie sei ‚ihr ambitioniertester, ihr emotionalster, ihr bester Roman. Zumindest bis heute‘." (Focus Online) "Die Autorin hat hier ein ausgezeichnetes Buch vorgelegt, dass mich von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite gefesselt hat." (Krimi-Couch.de) "Es gibt Bücher, bei denen man das Atmen vergisst. Die Romane der amerikanischen Schriftstellerin gehören dazu. So auch dieser Pageturner. (...) Karin Slaughter versteht es meisterhaft, glaubwürdige Charaktere zu erschaffen und ihre Leser fortwährend zu überraschen." (Lebensart) "Atmosphärisch dichter Thriller über die sozialen Gespinste einer Kleinstadt, psychologisch sehr stimmig, mit vielen Schichten und Überraschungen." (Bayrischer Rundfunk)

The publication of Robinson Crusoe in London in 1719 marked the arrival of a revolutionary art form: the novel. British writers were prominent in shaping the new type of storytelling - one which reflected the experiences of ordinary people, with characters in whom readers could find not only an escape, but a deeper understanding of their own lives. But the novel was more than just a reflection of British life. As Sebastian Faulks explains in this engaging literary and social history, it also helped invent the British. By focusing not on writers but on the people they gave us, Faulks not only celebrates the recently neglected act of novelistic creation but shows how the most enduring fictional characters over the centuries have helped map the British psyche. In this ebook, Sebastian celebrates the greatest snobs in fiction - from Emma Woodhouse to James Bond. Also included are three classic novels: Emma by Jane Austen: Emma is rich, independent and preoccupied with arranging suitors for her acquaintances. Her plans for the matrimonial success of a new friend, however, lead her into complications that ultimately test her own detachment from the world of romance. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens: Pip's life as an ordinary country boy is destined to be unexceptional until a chain of mysterious events lead him away from his humble origins and up the social ladder. The Diary of a Nobody by George and Weedon Grossmith: Mr Charles Pooter is a respectable man, unfortunately, nobody seems to recognise his gentility. George and Weedon Grossmith's comic novel, perfectly illustrated, is a glorious, affectionate caricature of the English middle-class at the end of nineteenth century.

Finalist for the PEN/Robert Bingham Fellowship for Writers It is the mid-1800s. Fela, taken from Africa, is working at her second sugar plantation in colonial Puerto Rico, where her mistress is only too happy to benefit from her impressive embroidery skills. But Fela has a secret. Before she and her husband were separated and sold into slavery, they performed a tribal ceremony in which they poured the essence of their unborn child into a very special stone. Fela keeps the stone with her, waiting for the chance to finish what she started. When the plantation owner approaches her, Fela sees a better opportunity for her child, and allows the man to act out his desire. Such is the beginning of a line of daughters connected by their intense love for one another, and the stories of a lost land. Mati, a powerful healer and noted craftswoman, is grounded in a life that is disappearing in a quickly changing world. Concha, unsure of her place, doesn't realize the price she will pay for rejecting her past. Elena, modern and educated, tries to navigate between two cultures, moving to the United States, where she will struggle to keep her family together. Carisa turns to the past for wisdom and strength when her life in New York falls apart. The stone becomes meaningful to each of the women, pulling them through times of crisis and ultimately connecting them to one another. Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa shows great skill and warmth in the telling of this heartbreaking, inspirational story about mothers and daughters, and the ways in which they hurt and save one another.
