This is the series for crime investigation thriller series, many authors aspire to write like Slaughter and many do well but this is pure genius as soon as l read the first page, my shoulders relaxed I switched off and got stuck into the story. Slaughter has a way of writing that's hard to define, the filler details are concise and minimal so you get the background information without having to read loads and the back story is always present in each book so even if someone hasn't read the series they can still engage in the book and throughly enjoy it.
Karin Slaughter books are on my to read again pile, the Will Trent series, which is the current running series including The Silent Wife is my favourite. Will Trent is not your usual investigator with his learning difficulties but it makes him loveable and as a reader I love hearing his approach to his work overcoming his difficulties and his relationship with Sara is just awesome. I was sad when Jeffery Tolliver died at the end of the Grant County series and I had no idea why Slaughter had done this. Then Will Trent arrived and it all made sense. But lovely to see Jeffery back in this book, historical events relevant to the current investigation but still lovely to have his character in action, and to see another side to the Lena character and see how poor she was as a police officer in the beginning. I didn't really get the dislike of her, she was more a rough diamond but seeing her unravel as a new officer was an insight.
The Silent Wife is another 5 star book and will be a enjoyed by all who read it. A decisive, well written beautifully planned thriller again from Karin Slaughter.
I cannot fault her books at all, they epitomise the perfect book for me, they have everything.
If you haven't read Karin Slaughter before, start at the beginning with Blindsighted... Best read in order.
All cleverly told by jumping back to early in the series with flashback chapters that link seamlessly into the current day action, played out over a couple of days following a prison uprising. It took me less than a day and a half to devour this eagerly awaited tale of Will and Sara and that took a lot of discipline, I could have happily stayed up all night and finished it in half the time. There are twists, turns, surprises and a few typical Slaughter like gruesome bits, all adding to the sum total of another great read.
I hesitate to say anything that might dampen someone elses enjoyment of the story so will simply say the team(s) are following up on what they discover to be a serial killer. She's tinkered with the timeline, so the twenty years we have spent with the characters is now just eight, but it works (though it likely means Sara is one of the strongest women in fiction, she's been through so much in that time) and hopefully means many more years of Will Trent, Sara Linton and the team. Believeable, readable and a tightly crafted tale that left me (as ever) wanting more. Thank you Karin, look forward to the next twenty years.
The Silent Wife, Karin Slaughter. 5/5
A predator is stalking the women of Grant County, lingering in the shadows..... A decade later the case is closed, the killer is behind bars when another woman is brutally attacked leaving Agent Will Trent & Forensic Pathologist Dr Sara Linton to reopen the cold case. The clock is ticking, the killer is determined to find the perfect silent wife.
A book drop from Karin is always a JOY. No other writer (especially in the genre!) has me ready for more before i even finish the book.
The Silent Wife is SO good. As exquisitely put together as ever from Karin, her crime/thrillers are always 5 levels above and beyond what I read elsewhere. She is truly a master of her craft. Her explorations of both the violence against women and the barriers women face when they report it are so well researched. This is a continuation of her Grant County/Atlanta series crossing Will Trent/Sara Linton in which Karin has written a love story successfully into a crime/thriller without skipping a beat and keeping the reader invested in both threads of the storyline.
This is Karins 20th novel and therefore my 20th of hers aswell as a few of her novellas and for the first time ever, i had an inkling on the suspect!
This was a 5 star read for me. Karin never disappoints and so begins the long wait for her next release!
I have read all the books in the Grant County and Will Trent Series and I loved this as much as the others. I have come to know and love all of the characters and the different relationships over the years.
Amongst the horrifying cases there is still the beautiful, damaged love story of Sara and Will but this time their relationship is threatened by a voice from the past. Has Sara's first husband, Jeffrey Tolliver, finally come back to split them up. There is so much going on in this instalment. Back and forth between past cases and officers and present ones. What is the link? What are they missing?
I loved revisiting Jefferey, Brock and Lena (although I still wanted to punch her in the face as Faith would put it). As both stories collided the twist became clear and I was horrified to find out 'who did it'.
I personally wouldn't recommend this one as a stand alone but that is because I think you need to know the back story to the characters to fully enjoy the book without being confused. If you have read the others what are you waiting for ?
Twenty stars if I could.
