Publisher's Summary

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. When the hostage situation turns deadly, Faith is left with too many questions, not enough answers. To find her mother, she'll need the help of her partner, Will Trent, and they'll both need the help of trauma doctor Sara Linton. But Faith isn't just a cop anymore--she's a witness. She's also a suspect. The thin blue line hides police corruption, bribery, even murder. Faith will have to go up against the people she respects the most in order to find her mother and bring the truth to light--or bury it forever.

Karin Slaughter's most exhilarating novel yet is a thrilling journey through the heart and soul, where the personal and the criminal collide, and conflicted loyalties threaten to destroy reputations and ruin lives. It is the work of a master of the thriller at the top of her game, and a whirlwind of unrelenting suspense.

    Story
    "Story great, narrator not!"
    If you could sum up Fallen in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful, emotional, satisfying


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ever-evolving relationships among the characters.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Shannon Cochran?

    Kathleen Early or Natalie Ross


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Evelyn coming to terms about her son and her inability to save him.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't care for the narrator's delivery. It was much like listening to Martha Stewart and her style might be better suited to a different genre.

    Story
    "Decent crime drama"
    Where does Fallen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Fair to midland.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    This is my first Karin Slaughter book. I enjoyed listening to things about my hometown Atlanta. Historical facts and such were pretty interesting. In addition, my favorite character was not the main character, Will Trent. I like his boss and partner more. He is more of a scrambled egg and will take some getting used to if I plan on continuing this series.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Some of the southern accents were a bit over the top. It's Atlanta, not rural Georgia.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    truth, lies and conseuences.

    "On the Edge of my Seat"

    Awesome book! The suspense, twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat. The narrator did a good job capturing the mood of the story and the characters. I really enjoyed the story and the narrator and I'm looking forward to listening to more books by this author.

    "PERFECT READ"

    From the first word spoken this book flowed perfectly. The reader was great, the story was great and, even though there were multiple storylines, you were never confused. Plus the ending was unexpected. I would highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "Another great Will Trent book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fallen to be better than the print version?

    I'm not sure if I would have liked the actual book version better than the audio but I really enjoyed the audio version so I had no complaints.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fallen?

    I like the Will and Sarah storyline and really liked when Sarah was a Grady debating whether or not to look at his sealed childhood health records.


    Have you listened to any of Shannon Cochran’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The two I have listened to have both been great so here again no complaints from me.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first book by Karin Slaughter and for the Will Trent series. Not long after this I had to read Criminal which takes place not long after this book ends. I enjoyed all the characters but especially like Will and Sarah, their relationship and how they both do their jobs.

    "A well-written story"

    I loved the relationship between Will and Sarah. The plot was overly complicated and I didn't believe in it, but Slaughter writes it well.

    Story
    "Good Mystery, Great Reader"
    What did you love best about Fallen?

    Most of all, I loved the voice of the reader. She had a perfect Texan cop voice, no nonsense, and worked for both the male and female voices.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fallen?

    The juxtaposition of horrible murders, remorseless bad guys, and a nice little love story on the side. Together, they serve to keep your interest, enough threads and side stories that you get a good sense of each of the characters. Well done, without a lot of fluff.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like books that hold your interest while not taking too much work to follow, you'll love this book. I'll definitely listen again!

    Story
    "The Fall is Too Long"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Ms. Slaughter relies too heavily on trite similies and gets her reader confused in the middle, wandering a bit with the description and activities of the bad guys, making the "fall" a bill to far, but does redeem herself with a bit of a surprise at the end that makes it worthwhile.
