The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter
The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter
Synopsis - With the discovery of a murder at an abandoned construction site, Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is brought in on a case that becomes much more dangerous when the dead man is identified as an ex-cop. Studying the body, Sara Linton—the GBI’s newest medical examiner and Will’s lover—realizes that the extensive blood loss didn't belong to the corpse. Sure enough, bloody footprints leading away from the scene indicate there is another victim—a woman—who has vanished . . . and who will die soon if she isn’t found. But the worst is yet to come. Evidence soon links Will’s troubled past to the case . . . and the consequences will tear through his life with the force of a tornado, wreaking havoc for Will and everyone around him, including his colleagues, family, friends—and even the suspects he pursues.
My Thoughts - This was my sixth Karin Slaughter book, all part of the Will Trent series. I don't think I have ever read so many book written by one author. Not counting my teenage years of reading Sweet Valley High books sigh. I am a huge fan of her books. I have only read the Will Trent books and he is such a wonderfully flawed character. The books are based in Atlanta and spare no gory details. The crimes are really horrific and are not meant for the lighthearted. This story was no different. It was utterly unpredictable and I can't really say anything without giving it away. If crime books are your thing then I'd say you really must give Ms. Slaughters books a read. Start with Triptych her first one of the series.
I usually enjoy books like this but haven't read any by this author. Thanks for the recommendation!ReplyDelete
I've not read any of her books, but this series sounds good! And I haven't thought about Sweet Valley High in years. I know my older daughter read those and maybe the younger one, too. :)ReplyDelete
a wonderful review, it seems you enjoyed it!!!ReplyDelete
omg i loved this blog post! thanks for sharingReplyDelete
This sounds like a great read and she certainly has the right last name to write horror novels lol.ReplyDelete
I have shied away from who done it books as I often figure out the plot long before the end and then I get annoyed. I figured out Gone Girl about half way through and then hated the book after that.
I also figured out In The Woods by Tana French so I kinda stopped after that.
My mama is the same; once she discovers an author she hunts down the author's books and digs in.ReplyDelete
Yeah, Aquaman had a lot of I guess you would call CGI? I liked the sea life though and was surprised Nicole Kidman was in the movie.
So you have a late spring break like us too? I am so ready but our week is slowly filling up with things to do.
I'm sure this book is as good as you described but the crime genre is one I usually tend to stay away from.ReplyDelete
I need to check out this author! Thanks for sharing this book.ReplyDelete
Oooo....I love books like this. I'm currently reading The Bone Collector because I love the movie, and it's also a crime thriller genre.ReplyDelete
PS I loved the Sweet Valley High series! Did u watch the show?
She is an incredible writer isn't she? I was put onto her books by a blogger who is lucky enough to know her. I haven't regretted it either.ReplyDelete
I wish I had kept my Sweet Valley High books for my daughter! Ohh, I don't know if I could take this series, I am not into gory stuff at all!!! It sounds like you're really captivated by the books by this author, tho!ReplyDelete
This is definitely a book I'd love to read! xo, Biana-BlovedBostonReplyDelete

I have not read Karin Slaughter yet. I do think that her books would be something that I would really enjoy so I don't know why I haven't picked one up yet. I am glad you enjoyed this one!ReplyDelete
Sounds like an interesting book. I'll check it out. I've been listening to a lot of books on audio lately and mysteries are really fun to do as audio books.ReplyDelete
