The Bad Daughter by Joy Fielding. Published by Ballantine

Robin has stayed far away from her family for years. Her father’s remarriage and ensuing new family, along with her terrible relationship with her sister, have given her no reason to play the part of dutiful sister and daughter. That changes when a blitz attack leaves her father, his wife and their daughter clinging to life. Robin heads back to her father’s home, the scene of the attack, wanting to try to mend fences with the family she’s very nearly lost. But she has to wonder, why were they attacked so brutally? Police seem to believe it was a home invasion gone wrong, but the whole thing seems like…overkilll. In her attempts to find out what really happened, Robin will learn that her estranged family has some very ugly secrets and that this was no random attack. I have been reading Fielding for years and she never disappoints, from believable characters to stranger and twisted plots, she creates some of the best literate thrillers I have read
