PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE WITH A THERAPIST HEROINE: Praised for her ability to “get inside the head of a contemporary woman” (The Globe and Mail), author Joy Fielding once again delivers a complex and compelling protagonist in Robin, a therapist who struggles to apply the wise counsel she gives her patients to her own messed up family.
CRITICAL ACCLAIM: Fielding’s previous novels have been praised by People (“Fielding has made the women-in-jeopardy genre her own”), The Washington Post (“Fielding masterfully manipulates our expectations”) and The St. Louis Post Dispatch (“The maven of domestic terror”), among many others.
"We can always count on Joy Fielding to turn out a well-dressed, well-developed psychological suspense novel, but her recent work featuring therapist Robin Davis is one of her best. Davis returns in The Bad Daughter, a zippy page-turner with a family secret to be unearthed. This is the kind of tale where Fielding excels and Davis is her best lead yet." —The Globe and Mail
"Fielding throws in enough twists to keep the reader turning the pages until the bombshell final shocker." —Publishers Weekly
"Fielding, a sure hand at psychological suspense, amps up tension nicely here as the narrative reaches a high-energy conclusion." —Booklist
"So expert is Fielding at seeding clues that readers will never see the final plot twist coming. The acutely portrayed family dynamics lend pathos and a certain schadenfreudian frisson to the proceedings. An author who knows her way around suburban angst." —Kirkus Reviews
"Fielding's latest is riveting enough to keep readers turning the pages. With an intricate plot shrouded in mystery and laden with psychological suspense, Fielding will hook readers in. . . . Add the gritty, authentic characters and the gripping tensions between them and readers will be enthralled. . . . With a high-stakes, satisfying and surprising conclusion, Fielding caps off another mind-bending, spellbinding thriller." —RT Book Reviews
