I've read couple of author's previous books which were quite good. This book, however, has much unnecessary verbiage totally unrelated to the 'plot'. Easy enough to fast forward through in a large book but just detracts from story.
I have read & truly enjoyed all of the Sara Linton books. As the books & plots have evolved, I love the ones with Will Trent. I truly hope there will be more of those coming. To anyone that has not started this series, please start with the first book!!
This series literally got me hooked on reading again after falling off the wagon for a few years. I read everyone one of her books just about as fast I could, so I'm always checking in every few months for more. This book was enjoyable. I love the characters, it just felt like it was lacking a little in both the depth of the characters and of the story line. Worth the read, but I can't say I couldn't put it down (as I can with all her other books).
Life by the Sea
I started reading Slaughter's books on a recommendation from a friend. What a ride, indeed. From Kisscut to Unseen, I could barely put them down. The stories are presented in such a manner that you feel like the characters, locations, and emotions are real. Each book is a new adventure or mystery, but the familiar characters re-appear to give the feel of an ongoing story line. I highly recommend reading all her books. My only regret, is that I have to wait for her next Novel.
Karin Slaughter never disappoints and found myself with two sleepless nights cause I couldn't put it down!
This was one of the worst books I have read in many years. As I am a retired police officer, I enjoy reading all types of detective and court room dramas. Michael Connelly novels are my favorites, but I have read all his books and was ready to try out a new author.
This book had zero character development, not to mention the fact that I had no idea who half the characters were. The plot made absolutely no sense, and the time sequences were so confusing that you didn't know if she was referring to the present or the past.
The police procedures were totally incorrect, so I don't know who the author used for research in these areas. The only reason I kept plugging through the book was because I paid $12.99 for the ebook, and frankly, I kept hoping the book would get better. I see the author has published a number of books, so maybe I just picked the dog of the bunch. Either way, I will not be wasting any more of my time or money reading her other novels.
The story grabs you in from the beginning and you can't put it down!!! Ms. Slaughter does it again!
