"A hugely thrilling psychological suspense, packed full of fiery explosive energy."
Pieces of Her blew me away, it’s sharp, edgy, compulsive reading. I foolishly started to read late in the evening and ended up keeping the early hours company for some time as I simply couldn’t put it down! 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 just read.
Karin Slaughter has the ability to set the page 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 reading high!

A unique but lengthy tale.
I have mixed feelings about this book. The plot was unlike anything I had read before but it was too drawn out for my liking and it did not keep me hooked in the way that I thought it would. It started well, dragged on in the middle, then picked up towards the end. The chapters set in the present were more engaging than those set in the past and I found myself speed reading through the backstory just to get back to the present.... Read Full Review
