Publisher's Summary

"A cool, crafty did-he-do-it thriller [for] readers of Jo Nesbo and Patricia Highsmith." (A. J. Finn, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Woman in the Window)

"Ingeniously twisted." (Entertainment Weekly)

Named a Must-Read Book of the Summer by Elle, Vulture, Entertainment Weekly, and Brit + Co

The Talented Mr. Ripley meets The Bad Seed in this breathless, chilling psychological thriller by the number one best-selling novelist known as "Korea's Stephen King"

Who can you trust if you can't trust yourself?

Early one morning, 26-year-old Yu-jin wakes up to a strange metallic smell and a phone call from his brother asking if everything's all right at home - he missed a call from their mother in the middle of the night. Yu-jin soon discovers her murdered body, lying in a pool of blood at the bottom of the stairs of their stylish Seoul duplex. He can't remember much about the night before; having suffered from seizures for most of his life, Yu-jin often has trouble with his memory. All he has to go on is a faint impression of his mother calling his name. But was she calling for help? Or begging for her life?

Thus begins Yu-jin's frantic three-day search to uncover what happened that night and to finally learn the truth about himself and his family. A shocking and addictive psychological thriller, The Good Son explores the mysteries of mind and memory, and the twisted relationship between a mother and son, with incredible urgency.

What a Surprise

You-Jeong Jeong better be writing another book! I never knew what was happening. Nothing is as it seems. Set in China really puts the reader off level. It was certainly worth my time and money. I rarely leave the TV off to listen to a book. So good!

Suspenseful

This story kept my attention, however the story kept taking detours that created anxiousness on my part.
