  • "Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today, and Cop Town shows the author at the top of her game - relentless pacing, complex characters, and gritty realism, all set against the backdrop of a city on the edge. Slaughter’s eye for detail and truth is unmatched . . . I’d follow her anywhere."

    Gillian Flynn, author of GONE GIRL
  • "Much more than a thriller ... Karin Slaughter's unforgettable female characters, and stunning evocation of time and place, make Cop Town one of the most powerful and moving reads of recent memory ... A masterpiece."

    Kathryn Stockett, author of THE HELP
  • "Stunning . . . In Karin Slaughter’s first stand-alone novel, she breaks new ground with this riveting story of two young police officers trying to stop a serial killer targeting cops. Her characters, plot and pacing are unrivaled among thriller writers and if you haven’t yet read her, this is the moment."

    Michael Connelly
  • "Vivid, gritty and taut, this terrific whodunit keeps you guessing."

    Sunday Mirror
  • "Karin Slaughter has long been comfortably ahead of the pack in the field of powerful and disturbing crime fiction but Cop Town shows a broadening of reach: it is a more ambitious novel than any she has previously written. Her achievement here is such that many fans will be happy to see her continuing to devote her attention to similar standalone novels."
