False Witness

False Witness

Author: Karin Slaughter Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/06/2021

A hard-hitting, devastating, wow of a read, Karin Slaughter has hit this standalone thriller out of the park! The past hunts down Defence Attorney Leigh Collier as she takes on a high profile rape case, and it threatens to destroy her. I am still squirming with reading euphoria having finished this novel. It’s no secret that I love Karin Slaughter’s writing and regularly shout about her books, for me, this is her best novel to date. It most definitely isn’t an easy or comfortable read, it travels into the very darkest of places, including violent sexual assault and drug addiction. This is one of the first novels I’ve read that covers Covid 19, it sat in the background, there, but not overtaking the storyline. From the beginning, when the shadows sucked me down into their spiralling depths and understanding hit, I knew this would be a one-sitting read. I didn’t want to put this book down, even when flinching from the pain that transmits from the page. While it packs an overwhelming punch, it also contains Karin’s unmistakable magic touch. She knows exactly when a lighter moment is needed, when a smirk or blurt of laughter will aid the reader. Yes it made me wince, it also made me consider what makes us who we are. False Witness is powerful and provocative, it explores social issues and violence, and is all the more fabulous for doing that. A LoveReading Star Book, this is a novel that’s going to stay with me for some time. Karin Slaughter is our Early Summer 2021 Guest Editor. Click here to learn more.

The Silent Wife

The Silent Wife

Author: Karin Slaughter Format: Paperback Release Date: 15/04/2021

A hard-hitting, fast-moving slicing wow of a book. An old case is reopened when new evidence appears, and a violent predator hunts his next victim. It’s no secret that I get jump-up-and-down excited about Karin Slaughter’s novels. She has the most wonderful ability to pitch full-on sharp storytelling and blasts of drama alongside thoughtfully handled social issues and relationship dilemmas. This could easily be read as a standalone, however there are two series that link to this novel, Will Trent and Grant County. Both series are just too good to miss, and I highly recommend them. For those who have read both sets, in this particular book time slides along a different path in order to make two time frames work. The author’s note perfectly explains why at the end, but (big but), make sure you don’t read the author’s note until you have read every last drop of the novel! Will Trent and Sara Linton work with the rest of the team, while the past runs alongside and does some serious meddling. Please note there are some fairly graphic descriptions of medical examinations and brutal attacks within the novel. Karin Slaughter doesn’t shy away from highlighting a distressing subject matter, which she mentions in her notes and the last part of her acknowledgments. While graphic, it is not gratuitous, and I felt every word that made me wince was necessary. The Silent Wife is another winner of a read, it sent goosebumps skittering down my arms and this, her twentieth novel, has been chosen as a LoveReading Star Book, Book of the Month, and Liz Pick.

The Last Widow

The Last Widow

Author: Karin Slaughter Format: Paperback Release Date: 23/07/2020

An addictive hammer-hard read that just slams with impact, and feels particularly relevant in todays climate. Agent Will Trent and medical examiner Sara Linton have careers where they are expected to run towards danger. However, when they stop to help at a road traffic collision, danger turns towards and overwhelms them. If you haven’t read any of the Will Trent or Grant County Series, not to worry as you can easily step inside and give yourself up to the story. Karin Slaughter’s books though, are so good, you will probably want to hunt down what has come before, so do weigh up whether or not you want to start mid series. The story starts with a blast of action and doesn’t let up. I love the fact that you are expected to keep up. I was immediately hooked, and read the whole book in one fabulous sitting (oh the reading high you get when that happens!). Time repeats itself from different viewpoints which was absolutely fascinating. As I hurtled towards the ending, I had that delicious feeling of not wanting the story to finish, yet being unable to slow down. I just had to know, had to experience, had to feel. ‘The Last Widow’ is fierce, fast, brilliantly compelling storytelling, it’s not only entertaining, it’s also one hell of a provocative read. I just had to choose it to appear as one of our LoveReading star books.

Pieces of Her

Pieces of Her

Author: Karin Slaughter Format: Paperback Release Date: 18/04/2019

Pieces of Her blew me away, it’s sharp, edgy, and compulsive. I foolishly started late in the evening and ended up keeping the early hours company for some time as I simply had to finish it! 31-year-old Andrea finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew about her mum Laura when a birthday trip ends in horrific violence, further danger rushes in and Andy desperately needs to find answers. The prologue encourages intrigue to bubble away nicely then, oh my word… chapter one! Chapter one brilliantly sets the scene before exploding in the most shocking way, I gulped, settled further into my chair and braced myself for the experience. Karin Slaughter has the ability to set a tale on fire, she fans the flames, and I needed my wits about me as the time frame changed and left my understanding floating for a while, searching for answers. Andy and Laura are fascinating characters, they challenged my thoughts and feelings in the best possible way. Incredibly stimulating and enthralling Pieces of Her has left me on a heart-hammering high!

The Good Daughter

The Good Daughter

Author: Karin Slaughter Format: Paperback Release Date: 03/05/2018

Gosh, what a story this is, dramatic, powerful, and so incredibly addictive. The Good Daughter is a standalone novel from Karin Slaughter. 28 years ago, as murder tore apart their family in a small town in North Georgia, one girl fled while the other stayed behind; in 2017 another act of violence threatens the family once more. From the very first page my whole attention was captured and kept prisoner until I had reached the end, and even now my thoughts still pop and burn. We start in 1989, and within a short time I found my body tensing, I was almost in fight or flight mode myself. I couldn't stop reading, each sentence branded my minds eye, and I could clearly see the drama as it unfolded in front of me. This really is clever writing, dots start to join up, creating a sinuous, convincing storyline. Even if thoughts of suspicion are already present, the impact of what is to come still breaks with intensity. The Good Daughter is a breathtaking whammy of a read, pure escapism at its best, and I can highly recommend it!

Un argumento elaborado repleto de intriga y accin, aparte de la tensin y la curiosidad que genera en el lector la evolucin de la historia.Letras en venaTodo va sucediendo sin que sea demasiado atropellado, dejndonos sentir esa angustia que sienten Lidia y Claire. De verdad que llegas a sentir angustia, porque es tan buena la forma en la que lo transmite la autora que cala en ti. Creo que tiene un componente psicolgico brutal. Una historia muy muy buena, con detalles, personajes muy bien logrados, tanto que pareca que recreaban las escenas ante ti. Intriga, traiciones, muertes, sexo, y un final que es de infarto.Te deseo un libro
