“Suspense that continually ratchets upward, a revealing look at domestic violence in all levels of society, and the continued development of a tight-knit cast of characters. This is prime Slaughter, must-read fare for thriller fans.” (Booklist (starred review))
“A thriller that’s part ‘True Detective,’ part ‘The Girl On The Train.’ All parts gripping.” (The Skimm)
From the Back Cover
Husbands and wives. Mothers and daughters. The past and the future.
Secrets bind them. And secrets can destroy them.
When a body is discovered at an abandoned construction site, Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is brought in on a case that becomes much more dangerous when the dead man is identified as an ex-cop.
But the worst is yet to come. Evidence soon links Will’s troubled past to the case . . . and the consequences will tear through his life with the force of a tornado, wreaking havoc for Will and everyone around him.
Relentlessly suspenseful and furiously paced, peopled with conflicted, fallible characters who leap from the page, The Kept Woman is a seamless blend of twisty police procedural and ingenious psychological thriller—a searing novel of love, loss, and redemption.
