The Bad Daughter
Booklist Reviews 2017 December #1
L.A. therapist Robin Davis had been happy to leave her dysfunctional family years earlier after her mother died. Her father, millionaire developer Greg Davis, was a habitual philanderer who subsequently married Robin's former best friend, Tara, who had been engaged to Robin's younger brother, Alec. Then tragedy strikes: Greg, Tara, and Cassidy, Tara's 12-year-old daughter, are badly wounded in what is assumed to have been a house invasion. Tara dies, Greg remains unconscious after being shot in the head, and Cassidy miraculously recovers and blames the attack on two (or maybe three) muscular men wearing ski masks. Robin leaves her practice and fiancé, lawyer Blake Upton, to join her older sister, Melanie, at their family home to deal with the aftermath of the attack. Robin uses her training and shows backbone as answers become clear. Fielding, a sure hand at psychological suspense, amps up tension nicely here as the narrative reaches a high-energy conclusion.
