Review

“A complex, gripping and deadly serious novel that reflects anew Slaughter’s abundant talent.”—The Washington Post

“An amazing effort . . . This is [Karin] Slaughter’s best book to date, and readers unfamiliar with her work will find this one a perfect place to begin.”—Associated Press

“An absolute master . . . Slaughter creates some wonderfully complex and mature female characters, a distinctive achievement in the world of thrillers.”—Chicago Tribune
 
“Slaughter has always known how to pace the suspense in her stellar crime novels, but she really outdoes herself here. . . . [She] reveals the heart and soul of her characters within a highly choreographed, unrelentingly suspenseful plot.”—Booklist (starred review)

Karin Slaughter has been entertaining her fans with exciting thrillers with ten novels to her name. One of the reasons that she is so well thought of is that she describes her characters in a way that makes the reader want to know more.

Faith Mitchell shows that she's got the same problems as many parents. She has an infant being watched by her mother and must get home to pick up the child.

Her mother, Evelyn, a retired police commander, is watching Faith's four-month-old dauther, Emma. Faith has been through countless training exercises but when she sees a bloody handprint on her mother's door, she goes into another gear.

After Faith calls for backup, she senses that her mother is in danger and decides not to wait. She enters the home and finds one man deceased, then she confronts two others. There is a deadly encounter at this point that is most visual, as if the reader were watching the action taking place before them.

Will Trent is Faith's partner. Amanda Wagner is his boss and Evelyn's best friend. They lead the investigation and we learn that Evelyn was the commander of a narcotics division prior to her retirement. There was a situation within her unit and due to the legal implications, Evelyn took an early retirment.

The story deals with the loyalty Will and Amanda have for their friend Evelyn. The evidence seems to show that there may be a problem with Evelyn's background but her friends remain strong in their belief of her.

There is also an interesting subplot as Will and Dr. Sara Linton spend time together and form a romantic relationship. We also see Faith wanting to do everything that she can to save her mother and so she begins her own investigation.

The story moves along swiftly and with an inventive plot, knock out characters and a fascinating conclusion, this makes for an engrossing read.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Disclaimer: Reviewer received a free copy of this book from Amazon Vine in exchange for an honest review.

Fallen, by Karin Slaughter, is the latest book in her series following Dr. Sara Linton and GBI Investigator, Will Trent. In this book, GBI Investigator Faith Mitchell arrives at her mother's house after work to pick up her baby daughter, only to find her daughter locked in the tool shed, her mother missing, and several gang members occupying her mother's house, which soon turns into a bloody battlefield. The action continues as Faith's formidable boss, Amanda Wagner, arrives and butts head with the Atlanta Police Department over jurisdiction. Amanda and Will pursue their investigation, as do the Atlanta Police Department, and Faith tries to pursue her own investigation and find her mother while keeping her son and daughter safe.

The mystery plot is confusing, often hard to follow, and reaches back to Will Trent's early years when he investigated Faith's mother for corruption and arrested many of the men in her squad. The book is peppered with an array of former police officers who have been or still are imprisoned, and a conglomeration of gang members. As always, Amanda knows more than she's telling but Will chafes more than usual under her manipulation of him and the people around him.

The mystery, really didn't hold my attention much-- there were just too many characters and too many subplots, and I wasn't able to keep track of all of them. What really made this book for me was the byplay between Will and Amanda, Will and Faith, Will and Angie, and Will and Sara. In this book we finally see Will start to take a step forward out of the well of misery, humiliation and sadness that has been his life, and his inner core of pure goodness comes through.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Karin Slaughter has surprised me in the past with her ability to write thrillers that are not standard, write-by-numbers, predictable stories. She usually has really interesting and nuanced characters who are incredibly unique and likeable, and plots that are anything but run-of-the-mill. Unfortunately, this latest offering seemed to me to fall short of her usual writing prowess.

This book features cop and single mother Faith Mitchell, who comes home from work to find her mother missing and a dead body. As expected this ignites an investigation that quickly derails with way too many characters, subplots, and complications. This would be okay if there was a reward at the end of the story, but there's not. The motivation for most of the criminals in this case is never made clear, and the book has too many half-baked red herrings involving years-old cases.

Overall, I'd probably give this one a pass. I am sure Ms. Slaughter has many excellent stories left in her; this just did not happen to be one of them.

"Fallen" is another fine entry in Karin Slaughter's thrillers featuring Dr. Sara Linton. This time the crime spotlight is on Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) Agent Faith Mitchell, while the romance spotlight focuses on Sara and Faith's GBI partner, Will Trent.

Faith leaves her infant daughter, Emma, with her mother, Evelyn, while she attends a relatively short GBI training. When she returns, she finds her mother's house ransacked, trails of blood, her mother gone, Emma hidden in a shed, and armed intruders inside Evelyn's home. For the remainder of the novel, Faith, Will, and their supervisor, Amanda Wagner, try to uncover who the people who took Evelyn are and what they want. They must work the case from outside GBI's normal investigative responsibilities because the Atlanta Police Department has claimed jurisdiction. They enlist Sara, a former coroner, to feed them information about some of the bad guys who are killed during the investigation.

Slaughter's novels are distinguished by the personal struggles of her characters, waged largely outside of the main storyline, but impacting their approach to investigation and how they handle stress. Faith struggles with her diabetes, the combativeness of her older brother, and Emma's father whom she did not inform about their daughter's birth. As do most of the featured characters, Faith has relationship issues. Will struggles (although not as much as in other books) with his dyslexia, his damaged and destructive wife, and his attraction to Sara. Sara, too, is conflicted about her attraction to Will and his attachment to his wife, as well as about moving on after husband's death. (I still haven't quite gotten over Jeffrey, myself.
