Book review: After That Night by Karin Slaughter

Friday, July 14, 2023 Permalink

I very much enjoyed After That Night by Karin Slaughter which is the 11th in the Will Trent series. I must have missed one or two I think as I think I knew Will and Sara Linton were together but had forgotten how much I like their relationship and the way they complement each other.

The underlying plot here is shocking though I’ve read similar books. It’s a reminder that sociopaths somehow manage to find one another and also raises the nature vs nurture debate.

Book review: False Witness by Karin Slaughter

Sunday, July 11, 2021 Permalink

False Witness by Karin Slaughter is the latest in a series of fabulous thrillers I’ve read within a short space of time. I’ve long been a fan of Slaughter’s series but am also very much enjoying her standalone novels.

I was worried this book might be a bit predictable, from the blurb. The premise seems kinda obvious, as if there will be nowhere for it to go that we haven’t been before. But – not only does  Slaughter kick-off with an interesting twist – she manages to eke out the past and present in such a way that kept me riveted.

Book review: The Silent Wife by Karin Slaughter

Wednesday, July 1, 2020 Permalink

The Silent Wife by Karin Slaughter is the tenth in the series featuring Will Trent, and though I’d say I’m a Slaughter devotee I somehow missed the last one or two.

Interestingly, for long term fans… this could almost be badged as a Grant County book as Jeffrey Tolliver, the (former) Chief of Grant County Police and headliner of that series (along with Sara Linton) features prominently. Which could be perplexing if you’ve read all of those books.

Book review: Cop Town

Monday, June 23, 2014 Permalink

I was born in the late 1960s and Karin Slaughter’s latest (stand-alone) novel, Cop Town, reminds me how lucky I am to have been born after generations of women who fought for equality and respect.

While women still battle for equal pay and opportunities in developed countries and access to education and basic human rights in others; I’m reminded that I’m fortunate to live in a more tolerant and accepting society. Sadly homophobia, sexism and racism continue to rear their ugly heads, but it’s reassuring to see more and more everyday types speaking out against inappropriate behaviour and intolerance.
