"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)

Sudden, extreme deaths have always fascinated us-- and now more than ever as athletes and travelers rise to the challenges of high-risk sports and journeys on the edge. In this spellbinding book, veteran travel and outdoor sports writer Peter Stark reenacts the dramas of what happens inside our bodies, our minds, and our souls when we push ourselves to the absolute limits of human endurance. Combining the adrenaline high of extreme sports with the startling facts of physiological reality, Stark narrates a series of outdoor adventure stories in which thrill can cross the line to mortal peril. Each death or brush with death is at once a suspense story, a cautionary tale, and a medical thriller. Stark describes in unforgettable detail exactly what goes through the mind of a cross-country skier as his body temperature plummets-- apathy at ninety-one degrees, stupor at ninety. He puts us inside the body of a doomed kayaker tumbling helplessly underwater for two minutes, five minutes, ten minutes. He conjures up the physiology of a snowboarder frantically trying not to panic as he consumes the tiny pocket of air trapped around his face under thousands of pounds of snow. These are among the dire situations that Stark transforms into harrowing accounts of how our bodies react to trauma, how reflexes and instinct compel us to fight back, and how, why, and when we let go of our will to live. In an increasingly tamed and homogenized world, risk is not only a means of escape but a path to spirituality. As Peter Stark writes, "You must try to understand death intimately and prepare yourself for death in order to live a full and satisfying life." In this fascinating, informative book, Stark reveals exactly what we’re getting ourselves into when we choose to live-- and die-- at the extremes of endurance.
