I've been reading Karin Slaughter's books and enjoying them forever it seems. Her newest, Criminal, is one that I found a little difficult to get into, but once I was caught up in the story I couldn't put it down. The characters are so well depicted that I simply had to find out both their background and what was going to happen in the present day. The story is set in Atlanta.


The background story is covered in sections from 1975 when women cops were a new phenomenon, and as such suffered endless

It amazes me that Karin Slaughter is so funny and upbeat in person and when she writes her newsletter, but her books are so dark! I wonder what made her write in this style and if she's ever thought about writing a funny book. Not that I'm complaining! I loved this, as I loved all the others. I really liked how the past and present stories intertwined and how the reader gets some back story on Amanda and Will.

Loved Slaughter's story telling expertise. Loved learning about Amanda. Loved seeing Will's history. BUT let's be clear it really pissed me off to have a Will Trent novel where he was little more than a side character and was acting out of character at that. I want more about Will Trent. 4.75/5 stars

Karin Slaughter takes us back to Will Trent's birth. We learn a lot about his mother and father. Met an early Amanda and also learned about Atlanta in 1975. What a tough life women had there. Good book all around!

I've been following Will Trent's life for years. CRIMINAL answers a lot of my questions about his past. Karin Slaughter can write a suspenseful book.
