I almost gave up on this as the plot didn't seem to be settling in well. I am so glad that I stuck with it as Karin Slaughter brought it home again with twists and turns and great complex characters.

Surprisingly good. I agree with some other reviews that at the front end of the novel I kept waiting for the plot to unfold but it certainly gathers speed through to the shocking finish!

I am a fan of the mystery and thriller genre but if you feel like you need a break from that this is a great choice. Many would call this a Summer/beach read. I love a book that makes me smile and laugh. Interesting characters. Great narration.

The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it's kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine's aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don't talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she's dead.

I am not really a lover of Romance novels but if you also enjoy thrillers this would be a good choice.(romantic thriller). Be aware the thriller content may be disturbing to some. As the title of this review mentions, I felt the book would have been just a good if it had been edited down further.

It could have been just any night, and they could have just been any two brothers - but it wasn't, and they weren't. The scene is an Atlanta bar. The music is loud and the dance floor is packed. The good-looking brother picks up a girl. But when dark deeds ensue out in the parking lot, what happens next can only be described in two words: vintage Slaughter. From the opening scene to the last line, "Thorn in My Side" is as wicked as it is entertaining.

My only thought is that Karin Slaughter wrote this after more than a few drinks at a dinner party where conjoined twins were the topic of conversation. Perhaps this could have been an interesting concept for a story, but this falls short of the high caliber of work that Karin Slaughter is known and highly respected for. This 'short story' is lacking at every level and is not recommended!

In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

I have been an avid Stuart Woods reader, but Chiefs is now a favorite of mine. Set in Georgia and spanning over 6 decades, Stuart Woods follows the founders of a small Southern town and its' Police Chiefs through the struggles associated with the Civil Rights movement and of course a serial killer who flies under the radar - well written and narrated.
