When Special Agent Will Trent arrives in Grant County, he finds a police department determined to protect its own and far too many unanswered questions about a prisoner's death. He doesn't understand why Officer Lena Adams is hiding secrets from him. He doesn't understand her role in the death of Grant County's popular police chief. He doesn't understand why that man's widow, Dr. Sara Linton, needs him now more than ever to help her crack this case.

While the police force investigates the murder of a young woman pulled from a frigid lake, Trent investigates the police force, putting pressure on Adams just when she's already about to crack. Caught between two complicated and determined women, trying to understand Linton's passionate distrust of Adams, the facts surrounding Chief Tolliver's death, and the complexities of this insular town, Trent will unleash a case filled with explosive secrets - and encounter a thin blue line that could be murderous if crossed.

Spellbinding and keenly paced, Broken is Karin Slaughter at her best. Here is an unforgettable story of raw emotions, dangerous assumptions, the deadly and layered game of betrayal, and a man's determination to expose the most painful of human truths - no matter how deeply they're hidden...or how devastating.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Siobheann | 1/30/2014

    " Really enjoyed this. I haven't read any of Karen Slaughter before - but I will try another. I was kept guessing until near the end - then the end dragged a bit. Liked the characters especially reading the book from 3 different character's perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli | 1/20/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi Jones | 1/7/2014

    " I think if I had read the series I may have liked this more, I would more likely have invested in the characters more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacque | 12/6/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. It kept me wrapped up, I could hardly put it down. There are two completely different but strong female leads, each with their own issues. I thought all the characters has a lot of depth. I will be glad to read more books by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 11/20/2013

    " Pretty good, but kind of lame. It was like who's the killer, who's the killer, build up. build up, and surprise! The killer's someone we barely met for 10 seconds. Um, let down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linjea | 8/29/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan | 6/30/2013

    " This murder mystery takes twists and turns yielding a satisfactory outcome to the case of three murders in rural Grant County, Georgia. Most of the tale takes place in the cold rainy weather with lots of mud and water. The characters are satisfying; I really like Sara and Will. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pearl Drolet | 3/23/2013

    " This is another great book by Karin Slaughter. I really enjoy her writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 2/15/2012

    " Listening. This one is unusual in that I'm hating Lina in a way I never did before. She was always messed up, but I always felt compassion for her. Here, not so much. Odd. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 1/10/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul Varner | 8/26/2011

    " First novel that I've read of her's. Too many characters for this type of murder mystery. Dyslexia was explained to some extent. Hard to believe a top detective had those problems. ( Will Trent ) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Beck | 6/29/2011

    " I like Karin Slaughter's work, so many damaged characters who still find a way to get on with their lives. I like the Will Trent character and this was a great story of Will's determination and skill. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bettyb | 5/18/2011

    " I read the book last year and decided to listen to the audiobook to refresh my memory before Slaughter's next book, Fallen, comes out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggy | 5/8/2011

    " A bit cliche here and there but a great page-turner for getting through airport queues "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 5/7/2011

    " Excellent book! Good pace and interesting plot. I will definately read another by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Kay | 5/5/2011

    " The most interesting point of this series is the character of Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Will Trent, who has succcessfully hidden his reading disability throughout his career. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharla | 4/29/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Scott | 4/18/2011

    " I didn't care for it, but to be fair, I had just finished two outstanding books. By comparison, this one was weak, sophomoric. The characters were so-so, story was nothing really special. It's the curse of Dennis Lehane, everything I read for the next little while will pale by comparison. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 4/13/2011

    " In keeping with the best of her Grant County novels, this book was fantastic, as well. I'm only sad it had come to an end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paulette | 4/11/2011

    " once again, hard to believe stories, but gripping and suspenseful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 B J | 4/7/2011

    " Just finished this one last night. This series is one that I find hard to put down. Can't wait till summer for the next book "Fallen". A must read for Karen Slaughter fans! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 susanne | 4/7/2011

    " This series started out great and has steadily maintained its greatness. I look forward to every installment and am never disappointed. I also have a crush on Will Trent, so that helps. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luanne | 3/17/2011

    " Good fast paced novel. Quick and fun.
    The characters were over the top for me. Each one flawed and full of secrets.
