#Screamathon @4thhouseontheleft #BookSpinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #SeriesRead2021 @TheSpineView

Book 9 in the Will Trent series took a bit of a different direction than others. In this one, Will must go undercover in order to save Sara and stop a crime from happening that puts thousands of lives in danger. Will also has to finally face his feelings for Sara.

Great thriller!

TheSpineView Great job! 😊 13mo

This is more of a crime book rather than the usual whodunnits I like 😬 it was however a good fast paced story and contained the most important thing... will Trent 😚

Karin Slaughter is just so good. But damn, with recent events in the U.S., this hit scarily too close to home. Good thing this author is smarter than a bunch a racist assholes? But part of me is like, “don‘t give them ideas!”

I love when an author mentions a place that I‘ve actually visited! I have several family members that live in Flowery Branch, GA!! It‘s a beautiful town. 🤗 From my aunt and uncle‘s back porch you can see a location that they use of the show Ozark.

booklover76 I grew up in the Atlanta suburbs (not far from Flowery Branch actually) and I love reading Slaughter's books because her descriptions of Atlanta are so accurate and vivid 2y

Homegrown terrorist cells are the focus of the latest crime novel set in Atlanta. Slaughter is one of my go-to crime/brain candy authors and she doesn‘t disappoint. After a CDC doctor is kidnapped and a bombing occurs at Emory university, the GBI & FBI investigate. Occasionally long winded, edge-of-your seat action makes up for it. There‘s something engaging about reading novels set in your own town, isn‘t there? 3.5/5 ⭐️ #CathysCatchUpPosts

I didn‘t like this book as much as I should have (I have loved most of Slaughter‘s Grant County & Will Trent series), mostly because the subject matter has become a matter of severe distress for me. This book involves the heinous machinations of a pedophilic overlord (Dash) whose paramilitary operations, if successful, could wipe out huge swaths of the population of Atlanta (the novel‘s setting). Slaughter ⬇️

gradcat ⬆️ (cont) allows Dash a lot of speaking time, and his particular brand of insidious bigotry is just too reminiscent of current situations, not only in the US, but in other countries around the world, where hated of minorities is finding purchase in once dormant, but now fertile, soil. It sickens me to such a degree that even a fictional representation of this mindset disturbs me too much to allow for enjoyment. But given that my personal ⬇️ 3y
gradcat ⬆️ (cont) feelings are not the only governor of my opinion in considering the worthiness of novels, I can in good faith give this book a so-so rating, because Slaughter always has great plots coupled with good writing, and she has not lost any of that ability with this book. I just don‘t care for the subject matter, but others will probably not be as bothered by it as I am. I‘m just sick of it, is all.... ♥️ (edited) 3y

This had a real Rambo feel to it which is quite different to her previous novels. It was good to have a story from a different point of view. The story was also repeated from different perspectives which was a new approach too. Not my favourite of her books, but still enthralling.

I loved this book! Devoured it in 2 sittings. Karin Slaughter never disappoints. She did a great job integrating the current political climate in a mystery/thriller. I don‘t always like when mystery/thriller authors do that, but this was well done. I recommend if you‘re a fan of the genre. Trigger warnings for rape and child abuse.

This book was a bit of a mixed bag for me. I really liked parts of the story but found other parts a bit tedious and over written. I have not read all of the other books that proceed this one in the series, so maybe that would‘ve helped me enjoyed this book more. It just seemed that the author got bogged down in details that didn‘t move the story forward. Normally, I like her writing but this one was not my favourite .

It begins with an abduction. The routine of a family shopping trip is shattered when Michelle Spivey is snatched as she leaves the mall with her young daughter. A month later, on a sleepy Sunday afternoon, medical examiner Sara Linton is at lunch with her boyfriend will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of investigation. But the serenity of the summers day is broken by the wail of sirens. A radical group has murder in mind.

quote
Kleblanc

“The right man isn‘t intimidated by a woman who‘s comfortable with who she is.”

quote
Kleblanc

“A furious woman was capable of inflicting immense psychological damage, the kind that stuck around long after the wounds healed.”

quote
Kleblanc

“She wasn‘t against religion so much as the people who sought to use it as a weapon. One of the things that had drawn Sara to medicine was the immutability of facts. The atomic number for helium would always be two. The triple point of water was indisputably the basis of the definition for the kelvin. You didn‘t need faith to believe either of these things. You just needed math.”

Sara has been taken prisoner and Will is forced undercover, on a case in which thousands of lives are at stake. book is too political for me. Slaughter is a great storyteller but we love to be entertained by by the exploits of Sara and Will's relationship in Grant County instead of Neo-Nazi‘s, domestic terrorism and homebred militia which we get enough of on the nightly news.

EadieB This is not the direction I was hoping this great series would take and I hope Slaughter can bring the next in the series back home to Grant County. I would recommend this book to those who like to read about political happenings in the world but if you want to read about Will and Sara in Grant County, then you will be as disappointed as I am. #TheLastWidow #KarinSlaughter 3y
Andrew65 That‘s a shame given the strong series around Sara‘s relationships and Will coping with his learning disabilities. 3y

I've been falling down the rabbit hole that is start/stopping library books and feeling guilty because of how long I was on the waitlist for them. So I decided to put my Kindle to the side for a sec and reach for a pinch hitter that I'd been saving, the most recent Karin Slaughter 👏🏽

I can‘t find words for how good this book is!! My heart raced all throughout and it was more thrilling since it seems so possible.

>>I was CONVINCED that Karin S couldn‘t write better books after finishing the Grant County series. I was too heartbroken to start the Will Trent books right away. So I skipped every Will Trent before this one and just jumped right in here. Now I HAVE to go back and re-start with Will Trent #1. She is the very best!!

Man, this one was good! The storyline was pretty terrifying but it was to be expected since it‘s a Karin Slaughter book. I really hope I don‘t have to wait another three years for the next book in the series. I love all the main characters, Will and his awkwardness, Amanda and her no-nonsense attitude, and Faith and her sarcasm.

I‘m not a violent person. I have never wanted to punch someone in the face so hard and he‘s not even a real person. Excellent, terrifying (because it‘s horrifyingly plausible), extremely well researched, rollercoaster, heart wrenching, pulse quickening, stay up late, dark and twisty, read. Can‘t wait for the next one! Thank you Littens for introducing me to Karin Slaughter! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
