Reviews

  • "If Gillian Flynn is an excellent debutante in that category of crime fiction, Karin Slaughter is the high mistress. No one does American small-town evil more chillingly ... Slaughter tells a dark story that grips and doesn't let go"

    The Times
  • "Slaughter knows exactly when to ratchet up the menace, and when to loiter on the more personal and emotional aspects of the victims. Thoroughly gripping, yet thoroughly gruesome stuff"

    Daily Mirror
  • "It's beautifully paced, appropriately grisly, and terrifyingly plausible. Who says there's anything peaceful and quiet about small-town America"

    Time Out
  • "On the strength of books that are relentlessly frightening, melodramatic and disgusting, she has become a mega-seller"

    Literary Review
  • "Karin Slaughter's latest is bloody excellent.If forensic crime thrillers are your cup of tea, you'll be hard pressed to find better to take your jollies"
