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.


  • Intense

    By Cali2011paradise
    Couldn’t put it down
  • Gripping page turner

    By Kellyannecakes88
    Very intense, a real page turner that may cause you to lose some sleep! It is disturbing, almost sick, definitely not for the faint of heart or anyone that may be triggered by sexual violence. I honestly don’t like reading that stuff but I had to find out what happened so I kept reading it. It is a good one that will stick with you.
  • Awful Book

    By reader756
    Stay away from this book. It’s terribly disturbing and the ending isn’t worth the awfulness you have to endure to get there.
  • Page turner…every page

    By SavKeys
    I couldn’t stop reading it. Extremely twisted but beyond great.
  • So good

    By aly seaman
    Could not stop reading this one! Very graphic but the twists and turns make it impossible to put down. TW: murder, rape, torture and mutilation
  • Page turner

    Intense with lots of twists.
  • Too gruesome

    By ktbop1010
    Story entertaining for the most part but details too gruesome.
  • Twistyyyy

    By Asher_Dunny
    I found this book long and confusing in the beginning. Once through the back story and introduction of characters the story starts to shape and keeps you wanting to know more.

    To say the most very least. I was beyond impressed with everything this book had to offer. I felt like I was there in the book as it was all playing out! A must read!!
