Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher who gave me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was my first Jonathan Kellerman book, but it definitely won't be my last. It drew me in from the very first page when we meet Grace for the first time as a little girl. She's a fascinating character that will stay with me for a long time to come, and is one that I hope to meet again in future novels. I have a feeling that her future is going to be every bit as interesting as her past has been.
The Murderer's Daughter is told both in the past and the present day. The sections of the story dealing with Grace's past were fascinating and I found it very difficult to put the book down during these parts of the story. Although the present day aspect of the story did drag a little in places, the flashbacks to Grace's past were enthralling and more than made up for it.
It's difficult to place this book in any particular genre. It does have some aspects of a psychological thriller, especially the parts told in the present day, but it is so much more than that.
It's a book that ended up being very different to anything I've ever read before and I enjoyed it immensely. An excellent 4 star read. Recommended.
