If you love true crime novels you should enjoy this one! Definitely not for the faint of heart tho. Ms. Slaughter does not sugar coat anything but tells it like it is. Welcome to the REAL world folks. Unfortunately, it's not always peaches n cream but can be downright wicked and ugly at times :/
It was a great action filled performance! Love the gore and the depth of all of the characters.

No I haven't
I almost choked when the narrator pronounced "De Cab" county as "De Kahlb." Any Atlantan knows it's wrong and it detracted from the story. If the story is about atlanta natives, the narrator should pronounce words like we do.
The southern accent was contrived and not at all like anyone under 75 speaks. I'm a native Mississippian and I don't drag out my words like I'm in a bad version of Driving Miss Daisy. Our accents are more colorful and subtle. I love a southern accent and the narrator's was not ev n close.
The story was great, however. Mr. Narrator, please research how us Atlantans pronounce things.
Didn't know what to expect going into this. I'm new to Karin Slaughter. I found myself enjoying the the story and the way the seemingly different sub plots came together. I'd recommend this, if you're into this genre.
Mom to 3 boys, full time professional. Listen to 2 books a week in my car during a long commute. On the hunt for a good, gripping read.
the cadence this narrator uses to read this book is painful to listen to I'm not sure I can get through another book with him reading it he is just the worst
The book was well written and I enjoyed listening to it up until the last couple of chapters. For me, the ending is very important and this one was completely unsatisfying. It ended very abruptly with little closure for the characters.
