Traveling With T picked this book up at Book Expo 2015.
Summary: From New York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter, the first novel in her acclaimed Grant County Series.
Interweaving knife-edge tension, superb characterization, and an evocative milieu, this thrilling novel of dark suspense, set in rural Grant County, Georgia, introduces engaging pediatrician and coroner, Dr. Sara Linton.
A sadistic rapist turned killer is terrorizing Grant County, and the chief of police, Sara’s ex-husband Jeffrey Tolliver, must find him. But he’s not alone. Lena Adams—the county’s sole female detective—wants to see justice done, since her sister was the first victim. Sara, too, cannot escape the terror. A secret from her past could hold the key to finding the killer—unless he finds her first.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
A few years ago I was at Book Expo waiting to see Kate White and she was at a table with other authors. One of them was Karin Slaughter- who I did not know much about at the time. After reading Pretty Girls, I knew I liked her writing- but her books are pretty graphic so I can’t just plow through her series like I want to (I gotta give my brain some time off from the dark world of Slaughter.)
In cleaning out some shelves, I found this book and I started reading and then bought the other 5 books in the Grant County series (and got a coupon for another Karin Slaughter book- which I used to buy book 1 in Will Trent series!)
What I Liked:
The cover. So interesting.
Grant County. It’s got a familiar feel to it and I can see it it my mind.
Who the bad person was. How deliciously disturbing,
Bottom line: Karin Slaughter is not afraid to go to the dark places in the world. Her books are good (if you like dark books) and the character development is crazy good.
