Review

"Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today, and Cop Town shows the author at the top of her game - relentless pacing, complex characters, and gritty realism, all set against the backdrop of a city on the edge. Slaughter’s eye for detail and truth is unmatched . . . I’d follow her anywhere." (Gillian Flynn, author of GONE GIRL)

"Much more than a thriller ... Karin Slaughter's unforgettable female characters, and stunning evocation of time and place, make Cop Town one of the most powerful and moving reads of recent memory ... A masterpiece." (Kathryn Stockett, author of THE HELP)

"Stunning . . . In Karin Slaughter’s first stand-alone novel, she breaks new ground with this riveting story of two young police officers trying to stop a serial killer targeting cops. Her characters, plot and pacing are unrivaled among thriller writers and if you haven’t yet read her, this is the moment." (Michael Connelly)

"Vivid, gritty and taut, this terrific whodunit keeps you guessing." (Sunday Mirror)

"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." (Financial Times)

Book Description

The compelling stand alone novel from the Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author of Unseen and Criminal.

From the Back Cover

Atlanta, 1974.

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. For life is anything but easy in the male-dominated world of the Atlanta Police Department.

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, they decide to pursue their own line of investigation. But are they prepared to risk everything as they venture into the city's darkest heart?

'Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today . Cop Town shows the author at the top of her game.' Gillian Flynn

'Unrivalled among thriller writers . if you haven't yet read her, this is the moment.' Michael Connelly
