Karin Slaughter does it again. I have binge read this series this month and I have loved this series. My favorite character would definitely have to be Dr. Linton. There is something empowering about a strong, smart female lead. If you are a Slaughter fan and you haven’t read this series by her than I definitely encourage you too get these books. I love following all the characters and getting tangled up in the story and thrills along the way. Karin Slaughter makes it incredibly hard to put her books down. I have stayed up way too late so many nights this month with this series and I absolutely don’t regret it. 😁 As a whole, I give this series ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I am on the third book of her Will Trent series and so far The Grant County series is my favorite. I know Dr. Linton crosses over into the Will Trent books so it will be interesting to see how that unfolds.
This is the third book in the Will Trent series by Karin Slaughter and quite possibly my favorite in the series so far. I was hooked from the first page all the way to the last page. The book introduces a new character, Sara Linton, who works for in the trauma center at a hospital but has also been a coroner in her past and is grieving the loss of her husband. I really like her character, she seemed smart and didn’t let people walk over her. The story jumps right in from the beginning which I absolutely loved. This book is dark and twist with a serial killing hunting young, thin brunettes around the Atlanta area. Once again, Karin Slaughter leaves out no details so prepare yourself for squeamish moments and details. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Even if you don’t read the first two books, this book could almost be a stand alone book. I promise you won’t want to put it down.
In the backwoods of suburban Atlanta, where Sara’s patient was found, local police have set up their investigation. But Georgia Bureau of Investigation detective Will Trent doesn’t wait for the go-ahead from his boss—he plunges through police lines, through the brooding woods, and single-handedly exposes a hidden house of horror buried beneath the earth. Then he finds another victim.… Wresting the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner, Faith Mitchell—a woman keeping explosive secrets of her own—are called into a related investigation. Another woman—a smart, upscale, independent young mother—has been snatched. For the two cops out on the hunt, for the doctor trying to bring her patient back to life, the truth hits like a hammer: the killer’s torture chamber has been found, but the killer is still at work. In her latest suspense masterpiece, Karin Slaughter weaves together the moving, powerful human stories of characters as real as they are complex and unforgettable. At the same time she has crafted a work of dazzling storytelling and spine-tingling mystery—as three people, each with their own wounds and their own secrets, are all that stands between a madman and his next crime.
You know you’ve read a great book when it sticks with you for days, even weeks after reading them. This is exactly how I feel about Karin Slaughter’s books. There is no doubt that she knows how to write amazing detailed stories that haunt you after finishing them. My only warning with her books is that they can be graphic and for me that makes me love her writing even more but for others that might be difficult to process. She leaves nothing to the imagination and allows takes you down a complex series of events. I have read quite a few Karin Slaughter books so far my favorites are Pretty Girls and The Good Daughter.
I don’t know how she does it but once again Karin Slaughter nails it. I loved this book and had the hardest time putting it down. I loved the sister dynamic in this story. They were extremely relatable and showed that not every family is close because it’s hard to let go of things even if you are family. I also loved how freaking badass they were. This book started off with a bang and then a few chapters in it slams you with another dramatic story and then a huge twist at the end that continued to make this book amazing. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. It’s right behind Pretty Girls which is my favorite book by Karin Slaughter.
Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind… Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn’s happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father — Pikeville’s notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night. Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father’s footsteps to become a lawyer herself — the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again — and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized — Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it’s a case that unleashes the terrible memories she’s spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won’t stay buried forever…
Karin Slaughter does it once again. I bought this book right after I read her book Pretty Girls and for some reason continued to put off reading it. I think I was nervous that I was going to compare them and Pretty Girls was/is one of my favorite thrillers. So with that being said, I loved this book. I loved that Karin (yes, we are on first name basis), dives right in with details and although some are graphic, I absolutely feel that it truly makes the story. She doesn’t cut corners and I love that about her writing. I enjoyed the main character Will Trent. He extremely relatable and I enjoy his awkwardness. This is the first book in the Will Trent series and I have already bought the second book to start reading. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. It’s definitely a great book for the first in the series.
From Atlanta’s wealthiest suburbs to its stark inner-city housing projects, a killer has crossed the boundaries of wealth and race. And the people who are chasing him must cross those boundaries, too. Among them is Michael Ormewood, a veteran detective whose marriage is hanging by a thread—and whose arrogance and explosive temper are threatening his career. And Angie Polaski, a beautiful vice cop who was once Michael’ s lover before she became his enemy. But unbeknownst to both of them, another player has entered the game: a loser ex-con who has stumbled upon the killer’s trail in the most coincidental of ways—and who may be the key to breaking the case wide open.
Let me start by say that I love Karin Slaughter books. I love her writing and all the details she puts into her stories. She leaves nothing out (and sometimes that can be graphic) so this book is not for the faint of heart. But if you love thrillers, suspense and lots of twists and turns, then this book is perfect for you. I couldn’t put this book down and ended up reading it in two nights. I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to find out what happened in the end and I was not disappointed. I loved both of the sisters in this book. They were completely different and I loved that. They both have secrets but at the end they are both wanting an answer regarding the disappearance of their oldest sister. This story has so many emotional moments that you feel as if it’s a part of you. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, and can definitely say it is now one of my all time favorite books.
More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that’s cruelly ripped open when Claire’s husband is killed.
The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago . . . and uncovering the possibility of redemption, and revenge, where they least expect it.
