'Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today, and Cop Town shows the author at the top of her game... I'd follow her anywhere' Gillian Flynn
As a brutal killing and a furious manhunt rock the city, Kate Murphy wonders if her first day on the police force will also be her last.
Kate isn't the only woman on the force who is finding things tough. Maggie Lawson followed her uncle and brother into the ranks to prove her worth in their cynical eyes.
When Maggie and Kate become partners, and are sidelined in the search for the city's cop killer, their fury, pain, and pride finally reach boiling point. But are they prepared to risk everything as they venture into the city's darkest heart?

'Passion, intensity, and humanity' LEE CHILD
'A writer of extraordinary talents' KATHY REICHS
'Fiction doesn't get any better than this' JEFFERY DEAVER
Vivid, gritty and taut, this terrific whodunit keeps you guessing.
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.
