    Clear, soothening and yet firm voice

    Any additional comments?

    Quite a lot of characters, hence need to pick on memory, to recollect who is who. Which is not very soothing for an audiobook.

    "great read!"

    Am a huge fan of Karin's work and liked how the relationship between Sara Linton and Will Trent has developed throughout the series. This book follows on from her last book Fallen. This book filled in the gaps of the backgrounds of some of the main characters, Will, Amanda, Angie. I loved this book especially finding out about Will's father but I won't spoil it for you. I wasn't too keen on the narrator when she did Fallen but I have to say she was much much better narrating Criminal. Looking forward to the next one!

    "Will Trent"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would if this was the kind of book they listen to


    Which character – as performed by Jennifer Woodward – was your favourite?

    I'm not a big fan of Jennifer Woodward


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes definitely


    Any additional comments?

    With this book you get to know Will's background, the murder of his mum and his dad's criminal dealings , how Will was found, what secrets Amanda is keeping, and what input she has made in Will's life and the list goes on.......... I loved the storyline about Amanda and Evelin when they first became detectives and the sexism and other obstacles that faced back in 70's. I would love to read books based on them I'm sure that would make for some good reading.

    "An insight into Will Trent's background "

    On first listening I was disappointed with this book but have since gone back to it and have thoroughly enjoyed this second visit.

    The book explains why there is the strange relationship between Amanda Wagner and Will. It also gives insight into the life of a female office in the 60's in Atlanta- probably everywhere else as well.

    Worth a read!

    "Brilliant!!"
    If you could sum up Criminal in three words, what would they be?

    Absolutely brilliantly written!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Amanda - gruff, outspoken but with a heart of gold! She should have adopted Will.


    What about Jennifer Woodward’s performance did you like?

    Very enjoyable to listen to, you always know who is speaking. She has a myriad of accents to call on and she is very clear and concise in her diction. Superb!!


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh yes very definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a first class read.

    "Gripping read; brilliant as usual"

    I have thoroughly enjoyed all of Karin Slaughter's books and this Will Trent story is no exception. The characters are well written and we get some more answers about Will's past. Brilliantly written in two time periods, it tracks the mirrored cases that have quite an impact. It's great to get the next chapter in Sarah and Will's story as well as filling in some blanks and simply being another gripping crime thriller.
