    In her latest suspense masterpiece, Karin Slaughter weaves together 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, with their own wounds and their own secrets, are all that stand between a madman and his next crime.

    The president knows it's a perilous, high-risk assignment. If he gives the order, he has the opportunity to take down a global menace, once and for all. If the mission fails, he would face certain impeachment, and the threats against the nation would multiply. So the president turns to the one team that can pull off the impossible: Will Robie and his partner, Jessica Reel. Together, Robie and Reel's talents as assassins are unmatched. But there are some in power who don't trust the pair.

    After purchasing the book I thought I made a mistake but NO, this book was outstanding.
    Loved the narration, story line(s) and interaction with characters. You could almost feel the surroundings. Well worth the time and price.

    The victim was buried alive in the Georgia woods, then killed in a horrifying fashion. When Sara Linton and Jeffrey Tolliver stumble upon the body, both become consumed with finding out who killed the pretty, impeccably dressed young woman. And for Sara and Jeffrey, a harrowing journey begins, one that will test their own turbulent relationship and draw dozens of lives into the case.

    Really good book but narrator is not very good. Easy to get past because the story is intriguing. So many twists and just when you think you have it figured out, NOPE, wrong again.

    Detective Lena Adams is the only suspect in a murder in Georgia. One hundred miles away, Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver finds out that his young detective has been arrested. Jeffrey's wife Sara has no patience for Lena or her dramas. Fighting a malpractice suit, the last thing Sara needs is to see Jeffrey playing Lena's knight in shining armor. Lena has leapt into an underground world of bigotry and rage.

    Story

    This narrator should never try to do all the voices. The men sounded like they had smokers voices. Just awful.

    This book answered many questions about Lena's life so that was good.

    Sara was portrayed as a weak, sniveling wife. In the other books she is clearly a strong woman and that is much better since she is a physician and must be strong to endure all she has gone through.

    Everytime Jeffrey made a move as a police officer and took a chance Sara squealed like a little girl that she was afraid he would get hurt. Good grief, he is a POLICE man not a librarian.

    If you do not have anything else to read, then take a chance; if there is anything else in your library pass on this one.

    There's no police training stronger than a cop's instinct. Faith Mitchell's mother isn't answering her phone. Her front door is open. There's a bloodstain above the knob. Her infant daughter is hidden in a shed behind the house. All that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations taught Faith Mitchell goes out the window when she charges into her mother's house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room. She sees a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn't see is her mother.

    Story

    There were many twists and turns with this book. Good story line but again, you need to begin the series from the beginning if possible.

    The narrator sounded like Martha Stewart. I guess if you can get past that she is ok but I just could not. I will stay away from Shannon Cockran's narration in the future.

    Very good book and classic Karin Slaughter

    Bill Black is a scary guy: a tall ex-con who rides to work on a Harley, and trails an air of violence wherever he goes. In Macon, Georgia, Bill has caught the eye of a wiry little drug dealer and his cunning girlfriend. They think Bill might be a useful ally. They don’t know that Bill is a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent named Will Trent. Or that he is fighting his own demons, undercover and cut off from the support of Sara Linton - the woman he loves, who he dares not tell he is putting himself at such risk.

    Very good but just how lucky can one guy be. Will Trent must have 9 lives.

    Again, start Karin Slaughter's series from the beginning and you will want to hear them all. I actually like to travel now since I can listen to her books. I opt to travel alone so I will not be interrupted with mindless chatter and can enjoy these books.

    Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and he is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda's motivation, until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before - when Will's father was imprisoned for murder - this was his home....

    Story

    I was unsure if I liked this book at all but then......it all comes together. I do not normally like a book that flips back and forth from past to present but it was necessary with this book.

    I almost like Amanda now. Also, I am close to Amanda's age as the book portrays her. As a professional woman I can relate to the road blocks she faced in her career but I have a really hard time seeing her being controlled by her father and taking the crap she took from the guys on the force.

    Will Trent's background is crazy and this book explains it all.

    WONDERFUL BOOK Start Karin Slaughters series with the first and you will be hooked.

    When the body of a young woman is discovered deep beneath the icy waters of Lake Grant, a note left under a rock by the shore points to suicide. But within minutes, it becomes clear that this is no suicide. It's a brutal, cold-blooded murder. All too soon former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton - home for Thanksgiving after a long absence - finds herself unwittingly drawn into the case.

    With every book by Karin Slaughter I am amazed. I THINK so far Broken is my favorite. I am a long time mystery reader and almost always figure out the bad guy before the middle of the book. Not with any of Karin Slaughter's books.

    Begin the series with the first book and then you cannot stop listening.

    Will Trent, a dedicated agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for 15 years, knows that there’s definitely such a thing as a cop’s intuition - which is why he should have listened to his own. While in a restroom at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Will overhears a girl’s pleading, plaintive voice: "Please, I wanna go home." Something isn’t right here, thinks Will. He feels it in his gut. But he waits too long to act, and now the girl and the anxious, angry man she’s with have disappeared into the crowds at the busiest passenger airport in the world.

    Here Gretchen is still on the loose and Archie is still hospitalized after his ploy to catch her went spectacularly wrong. They've entered a detente of sorts: Archie agrees not to kill himself if she agrees not to kill anyone else. But suddenly there's something else to contend with that might be worse - a zealous fan of Gretchen's, paying homage to the Beauty Killer by luring Archie and reporter Susan Ward to the scene of a grisly murder.
