Publisher's Summary

The critically acclaimed and New York Times best-selling master of suspense delivers her first stand-alone novel, a thrilling tale of crime and struggle set in Atlanta in the mid-1970s.

Atlanta, 1974: It's Kate Murphy's first day on the job, and the Atlanta Police Department is seething after the murder of an officer. Before the day has barely begun, she already suspects she's not cut out to be a cop. Her male uniform is too big, she can't handle a gun, and she's rapidly learning that the APD is hardly a place that welcomes women. Worse still, in the ensuing manhunt she'll be partnered with Maggie Lawson, a cop with her own ax to grind (and a brother and uncle already on the force) - a strategy meant to isolate Kate and Maggie from the action. But the move will backfire, putting them right at the heart of it.

Cop Town is an incredibly atmospheric nail-biter from the author the Huffington Post called an "exemplary storyteller" and "one of the great talents of the 21st century".

GARBAGE!!!!

Would you try another book from Karin Slaughter and/or Kathleen Early?

I would. I am a fan of the "Will Trent" series. But....wow, Cop Town is making me think twice.

Has Cop Town turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not in this genre, but definitely by this author.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kathleen Early’s performances?

Her performance was fine. Her voice worked well with the characters.

What character would you cut from Cop Town?

Where would I begin, what a loaded question.

Any additional comments?

I understand where and when this book takes place and I understand that this book is a work of fiction. With that being the case I am still offended at how the author portrays her black characters in this book. How is it that all of the black characters are on heroin,dirty,filthy,pimps,mean,angry and "less than"....<br/>The difference between slavery and the holocaust is representation in history approaches both atrocities differently. It doesn't mean that one group of people is better, cleaner and more deserving of understanding and respect. Karin Slaughter has managed to make all of her black characters regardless of time,place or setting seem like they aren't worth the shit on a shoe. I was offended by her portrayal of characters. This was a waste of my time and credit.

Not a bad book but not super exciting either! The ending crept up very quickly and I was like.... Oh okay it's over, little disappointed.

Similar to others she has written

Any additional comments?

I liker her writing and the fact these are based in Atlanta, so I listen. It's entertainment. If you like murder mysteries and cop type books, this is a good get away for a few hours.

Disappointed

Disappointed with this book. I just couldn’t finish this book. Too much against gender and color. Just way too much for me.

Think Harlequin only worse

great plot with absolutely no research or consideration for continuity. Too many things that didn't exist in the world when the story took place and there was no real development oh the characters.

Did I miss something?

This is the rare book that held my interest even when I wasn't listening to it. I kept trying to figure out who did it. However it was a big disappointment, when i was expecting more clues to have the bad guy just kind of show up and have the final scene. What did I miss? How did I miss it? The bad guy just walked in out of the blue, guess I was expecting more intrigue. Oh well it was a pretty good book non the less.

Not much depth to this book. Seemed all the action was crammed into the last 5 chapters.
