From Karin Slaughter comes a fast and furious tale in which no one is quite who they seem. This electrifying novella featuring Will Trent is a prequel to Slaughter's novel Unseen, a New York Times best seller.
Detective Will Trent is standing in a Georgia convenience store, waiting on an obstinate ICEE frozen-drink machine. To the surveillance cameras and bored staff of the Lil' Dixie Gas-n-Go, however, Will appears to besome one very different - the menacing ex-con Bill Black. Going undercover as Bill, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent is about to infiltrate the most corrupt town in the most corrupt county in the new American South. But first: his ICEE.
Everything changes in one horrific instant, as all hell breaks loose at the Lil' Dixie. A cop is shot. A bag of cash goes flying across the floor. A young woman disappears while a killer takes off in a battered pickup truck. Within seconds, Will is in pursuit.

I bought this thinking it would add to the series in an interesting way.. It was so boring and the performance made me feel like she was yelling the entire novella.
sure, because i have really enjoyed her other books.
just seems annoyingly loud and brash
Big fan of karins and will trent so maybe I'm biased. Any story about will I love and little hits in between novels are just precious. Busted is like that - a perfect snack that leaves you satisfied but not too small that you want more (right away anyway). Karin's stories are well, the perfect snack.
And when Kathleen Early reads them - it's the cherry on top!
My only complaint - karin, I loved Coptown but I need my will and Sarah?! Now I hear there is another off topic novel for 2015? What's up??!!
Enjoy Busted - I did
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I will listen to anything by Karen Slaughter, I have been reading and now listening to her books for years and know and love all her characters like my own family. This is a short story where Will is just in the wrong place at that wrong time, follows the many twists and solves the crime. Fun listen!
One credit or $9.95 seems steep for a novella that is just over two hours long. I love the Will Trent series though so I went for it. The plot was very confusing- way too many characters- and while it started with potential (Will undercover as an ex-con) that part of the storyline went by the wayside and wasn't even picked back up as a teaser for the next book. Sarah Linton was not a part of this story other than one gratuitous mention. This novella was like watching a one hour episode of the A Team. It filled some time with some shooting and a motorcycle chase but was essentially unfulfilling.
I loved all of the Will Trent Series including all the short stories up to this one. I read the reviews on this one because I didn't want to spend $10 on a 2 hour mini book but the her 1st mini book was so good and helped tie the series together. But this one was not nearly as good. I would highly rate all of her other books. This one just fell flat for me.
