Publisher Description

WATCH WILL TRENT ON ABC!

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“This chilling mystery is just begging to be read in one sitting.”—Cosmopolitan

Broken features the return of New York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter’s most compelling characters and introduces memorable new ones in a tale of corruption, murder, and confrontation that will leave more than one life destroyed . . .

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.

"I'd never read anything by Karen Slaughter before so didn't know what to expect. It was easy to read and whilst it did get a bit slow 1/4 the way through it really took off again 1/2 way as more twists were added. The ending was so gripping it was hard to read slow enough to take everything in as I was so excited to find out who did it. The reason I have not given it 5 stars is because the ending was a bit out of the blue and which we didn't know much about; it seemed disjointed. I would definitely recommend this book and will be lending it to friends and family. I hope to read more Karen Slaughter in the future :)"

    " Back in Grant County with the ghosts she left behind, Dr. Sara Linton is dragged into an investigation of a murdered girl, When the prime suspect is found dead in his cell, Will Trent is called in from GBI and together they have to unwind the deep, dark secrets of the police force there, which has festered following the death of Sara's husband, Chief Jeff Tolliver.

    " A real page-turner indeed, the book should have a warning: "only for healthy persons, who can do without food and sleep for the time this book needs to be read". But the end is slightly dissappointing though.... it reads as if it was abruptly added only because it's common sense that books need an ending. "

    " 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. "

    " When fandom collide ... I love when this happens, and bringing Georgia to Grant County was a wise move plotwise. I enjoyed reading this book very much. Will Trent became one of my favorite male book character and I hope we will see more of him in the future in Sara's future "

    " Even though she is a popular murder mystery writer, this is much too padded out with emotional descriptions of the protagonists and not getting on with the action! I listened to it in the car on a long drive or I would never have finished it! "

    " This is the first Karin Slaughter book I read. It was a great read and I will certainly be reading the other Georgia books in the series. Small towns and minds make for a dark read. "

    " I think that the book should have been shorter. It got sort of boring and i actually took a break with it. It was depressing. Shit on shit on shit.. I think the endning was okay, but pretty predictable. I didn't really like it but i think it would be a good movie actually. "

    " 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. "
