Great page turner
Karin Slaughter is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors! This book is. Quick read. Some of the details are a bit disturbing, but told in a way that makes you want to find out who did it.
An Okay Read
Overall well plotted with enough suspense to hold my interest.
As with all the Trent series, it is not believable that someone as severely dyslexic as Trent would have been hired as a detective. Barely able to read or follow simple directions such as "Go left" or "Go right," Trent cannot perform his duties independently. No matter how intelligent he is, he would be a liability to his partner and to himself. Perhaps there would be a role in law enforcement for someone like Trent, just not as a detective.
In this book we learn that Trent's partner, Faith Mitchell is not only pregnant, but also suffers from Type 2 diabetes. I have to question whether a person with her chronic disease would be certified for active duty such as detective. It seemed a needless complication that Slaughter chose to introduce this into the plot.
Also, Slaughter spends too much time on the personal problems of two of her lead characters. This is a mystery/detective novel, not a romance.
That said, the twists and turns of the story line kept me reading and I look forward to Slaughter's next book.
Strong character dvlpmnt
From a review in Costco magazine, I learned the author Karin Slaughter grew up in the suburban area where I went to High School. So that was my hook and I am glad for it. I thoroughly enjoyed the engaging full character development and the many back details supporting the plot line. However the wrap up solution to the plot left me rather flat and unbelieving. Guess that is a bad UN.
