From the critically acclaimed and New York Times bestselling master of suspense comes a stand-alone novel about family and belonging, justice and retribution, the decisions we make-and the choices that haunt us. Pretty Girls also includes the chilling short story "Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes."More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia's 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.

Have to agree with reader "beckerlu" about the violence. I, too, stopped reading Patterson for the same reason, but I have enjoyed all other Slaughter books I've read. I am having trouble getting the characters and scenes of violence out of my head as well. That is a well-written book when you care about the characters after you have finished the book.

After seeing how many stars previous listeners had given this audiobook, although unfamiliar with the author, I thought I would give it a go. However, I could not even make it through the first disc, as I found the reader's voice very annoying. It was flat, unadaptable, and had a repetitive cadence.

This book is a really good thriller. The characters are well developed and seemed very real to me.

That said, reader beware, it is probably the darkest, most horribly violent book I have ever read. I stopped reading James Patterson years ago because the violence became too much for me. And stopped watching Walking Dead 3-4 seasons in for the same reason.

Still, I couldn't put this book down even though it haunted me until I finished it and then a little while after. I had to stop reading it too close to bedtime about halfway through. I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a good murder mystery, but who is not squeamish about very detailed violence and horror.
