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.

    "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!

    "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.

    Story
    "I loved it!"
    If you could sum up Fallen in three words, what would they be?

    A new friend!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes - twists and turns


    What does Shannon Cochran bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved her voice. I loved the subtle shades in her different characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I plan to listen to other Karin Slaughter books and hope that I will enjoy them as much as I did Fallen.

    "Just what I needed"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I was looking for a story that would make me want to know what happened but I wouldn't have to think hard. This was perfect for me. I thought it was a good story, well done and will definitely listen to more. I only gave it a 3 because I will save 4 and 5 for fine literature.


    Was Fallen worth the listening time?

    Yes definitely, for me ,it was the right thing at the right time.

    "Another great Will Trent suspense novel"

    I am a fan of Ms. Slaughter's from her very first Grant County novel. I have also enjoyed her Will Trent series and have fallen a little in love with the dysfunctional and damaged lead character. This story follows the action as Faith, Will's partner at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, faces the violent attack and kidnapping of her mother. The mother, Evelyn, is a retired Atlanta PD detective who retired under a cloud of suspicion.

    The story moves pretty seamlessly from Faith, Will, Evelyn and Sara Linton's point of view. Sara, the lead character in the Grant County series, plays a supporting role/love interest in this story. As in Mr. Slaughter's other books, the main drive of the story is the investigation, not the romance, but there is just enough back story with each character to keep the reader/listener truly interested.

    As far as the performance, this is the first narration by Ms. Cochran I have listened to. I found her to be a great voice for the characters without too much exaggeration when switching between characters.

    Overall a solid thriller with interesting characters. No big ah-ha moments however, and I was a little disappointed with the resolution of Will's story line.
