"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.
“A chilling portrait of a psychopath, and a beautifully evocative tale of wealth and isolation in modern South Korean life. You-Jeong Jeong has been called the Stephen King of South Korea, although I’d prefer to compare her to Lionel Shriver, Dorothy B. Hughes, or Patricia Highsmith.” (Molly Odintz, Lit Hub)
“Absorbing.... An unlikely thriller that we continue to read - thanks to Ms. Jeong's controlled prose...with a sickened sort of fascination. It's a testament to the author's skill and seriousness of purpose that she maintains suspense about her inhuman-seeming protagonist's fate until the bitter end.” (The Wall Street Journal)
"Will leave even the most seasoned crime fiction readers guessing." (CrimeReads)
