The Good Son by You-jeong Jeong

You wake up covered in blood
there’s a body downstairs
your mother’s body

You didn’t do it.  Did you?
How could you, you’ve always been the good son

When Yu-jin wakes up covered in blood, and finds the body of his mother downstairs, he decides to hide the evidence and pursue the killer himself.

Then young women start disappearing in his South Korean town.  Who is he hunting?  And why does the answer take him back to his brother and father who lost their lives many years ago.

The Good Son is inspired by a true story.

The international sensation from Korea’s million-copy bestselling author You-jeong Jeong.

Peer & Press Reviews

A cool, crafty did-he-do-it thriller buoyed by a rising tide of madness.  Provocative yet profound, humming with mood and menace, The Good Son will rivet readers of Jo Nesbo and Patricia Highsmith.

A. J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

An intense, creepy, darkly funny read… a book focusing on the claustrophobic dynamics of a mother-son relationship that makes Mrs Bates and her son Norman look well-adjusted.

Daily Telegraph

Readers will be relieved that this is fiction, not real life.  This book will pull you in; as you devour it, you might perhaps resent the author’s relentless pursuit of the evil coiled within humans.  But this, too, is human.

Kyoung sook Shin, author of Please Look After Mother
