I am super excited to share my review with you today for The Silent Wife by Karin Slaughter. Which is out now.
Atlanta, Georgia. Present day. A young woman is brutally attacked and left for dead. The police investigate but the trail goes cold. Until a chance assignment takes GBI investigator Will Trent to the state penitentiary, and to a prisoner who says he recognises the MO. The attack looks identical to the one he was accused of eight years earlier. The prisoner’s always insisted that he was innocent, and now he’s sure he has proof. The killer is still out there.
As Will digs into both crimes it becomes clear that he must solve the original case in order to reach the truth. Yet nearly a decade has passed—time for memories to fade, witnesses to vanish, evidence to disappear. And now he needs medical examiner Sara Linton to help him hunt down a ruthless murderer. But when the past and present collide, everything Will values is at stake.
The Silent Wife which is book 10 in the Will Trent series. I am a massive fan of the author and every year I look forward to Karin’s latest novel. It is hard to believe that I have been reading Karin’s books for 20 years and this is her 20th book!
Like always Karin never disappoints and always gives the reader a gripping read that you wont be able to out down. The characters are well developed I feel like they are my friends after spending so many years with them.
I don’t want to give to much away with the plot. But fans are going to love it. I was sucked in from the very first page and taken on a roller coaster ride. When we follow a plot that is woven into the characters lives giving us answers to questions from the past. As we piece the puzzle together on the hunt for the killer.
The Silent Wife is an engaging, extremely addictive read that I couldn’t put down. I love everything about it.
This book speaks for itself, it is a must read!
Massive thank you to Anne Cater for a copy and for the blog tour invite.
