Publisher's Summary

From the hallucinatory noir novella Go Deep to the twisted short stories "Necessary Women" and "Remmy Rothstein Toes the Line", this collection showcases the New York Times best-selling author's dark humor, limitless imagination, and masterly command of voice and character.

Go Deep

Growing up dirt poor, Charlie Lam worked his ass off to make something of himself, no thanks to his deadbeat father or his long-suffering mother. And now a lot of people depend on Charlie: by his last count, 68 employees at his Atlanta auto dealership, 11 shiftless brothers and sisters, an ungrateful wife, a spoiled daughter, and a shameless girlfriend. Who could really blame him for wanting a little extra?

The arrangement is simple: Charlie picks up a suit from the dry cleaner's. In the suit pocket is the name of a very important man. The next day that man walks into the dealership and drives out in a new car, and Charlie gets a fat envelope full of cash.

"Necessary Women"

In a border town between Georgia and Alabama, in a three-room house made of cement block, a 14-year-old girl watches her mother die. Her father is a long-haul trucker, away for weeks, sometimes months, at a time. Her mother, with two menial jobs cleaning restrooms and working nights at the laundry, had been just 30.

A week before she died, noticing her daughter getting attention from a boy, the girl's mother warned her not to make the same mistakes she had.

"Remmy Rothstein Toes the Line"

As an intrepid adjudicator of world records, Mindy Patel has met lots of strange people in lots of strange places. But they're no match for the swampers of the Georgia bayou. Mindy has braved the oppressive August heat in search of Remmy Rothstein, who they call the "Cajun Jew."

    Story
    "Slaughter is King"

    Or Queen. Whatever. Not a big fan of the short story but these three tales are a mixed bag of OMG, WTF and ROFL. Just like all things her book had to come to an end. But nobody says I can't start from page 1 and do it again.

    "Just okay"
    Any additional comments?

    These three stories were okay but I did not feel they were up to Karin Slaughter's usual writing standards. I felt like she had a good idea for a story but then just hurriedly wrote an ending to the first one. The second story was sick but was actually my favorite, having the type of twist to it that I had expected for all three stories. The final story was really just very bland in my opinion, although I think Kathleen Early did an excellent job with the voice and brought to the story what little bit of real enjoyment I got from the listen. I loved her portrayal of the main character (I just finished it and already can't remember the main character's name and I think it is even in the title?) and the real emotion she put into the narration. It truly made the character and her feelings at each point in the story come to life. Kathleen Early is one of my favorite readers and she didn't disappoint this time, even though Karin Slaughter did.
