Genre: Thriller & Mystery
Series: Will Trent #6
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
CRIMINAL by Karin Slaughter can be summed up by Lee Child’s blurb on the cover of this book:
“Karin Slaughter’s best yet by far: All her signature strengths are amplified a hundredfold by the past explaining the present. Reading the book was like watching a great athlete having a career year”
I had one word to describe her talent when it came to writing this story “genius”.
Even better this formula:
Will Trent series + Grant County series + Cop Town = ONE AMAZING & RIVETING STORY
I loved how deftly Slaughter weaved Amanda and Evelyn’s past into the present involving Will and his origins. The relationship between Will and Sara goes from happy to WTF happened. We are shown 1970’s Atlanta and what women had to deal and face in that time. Seriously an addicting read that kept me up most nights saying “just one more chapter and I can quit”.
