Format: Hardcover
'Skin Privilege' (called 'Beyond Reach' in the U.S.), the sixth book in Karin Slaughter's Grant County series begins when Sara and her husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, must travel to rural Reese, where Lena Adams, Jeffrey's often reckless detective, has been injured in an explosion that killed a local woman. Lena's mysterious escape from the hospital plunges her, Sara and Jeffrey into a dangerous web of meth trafficking, white supremacy groups and long-buried family secrets.

Once you get past the slow start this book is a brilliant read that is truly unputdownable. Slaughter expertly shifts back and forth in both time and point of view connecting every loose plot strand in a devastating and unforgettable climax. My only real complaint about this book is the fact that the story all revolves around Lena (again) as she isn't the best character in the series by a long shot and her almost teenager-like attitude and persona is becoming increasingly more annoying with each book. Otherwise this is an excellent read that fans of the series should love and the shocking and unforgettable ending is strong enough to whet your appetite for Slaughters next book, Sleeping Dogs, due in 2008.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
One or two people have put massive spoilers in some of their reviews for this book (under Skin Privilege) so unfortunately I knew what was coming and when it did it was totally shocking. If you have followed the `Grant County' series from book 1 (Blindsighted) through to this possibly final one (I say possibly because I've read somewhere that Karin Slaughter is taking a few years off from `Grant County'), you will have appreciated how as a writer Slaughter has matured and developed her characters. This is especially so in the fifth book (Faithless) in which she incorporates Sara and Jeffrey first meeting into the up to date story and gives the reader great insight into their relationship which puts into perspective some of the feelings and emotions of the previous books, and indeed into Skin Privilege.

Much of this book is about Lena Adams, Jeffrey's former colleague. Some reviewers have said that it's too much about Lena rather than Jeffrey and Sara but Lena has always been a big part of Grant County and, in a way, this book has gone back into Lena's past in the same way Faithless did with Jeffrey and Sara. Lena deserved to have her childhood looked into and have some of the wrongs put right. She's always seemed such an angry and bad tempered character in the previous books and in this one, her upbringing by her uncle Hank comes to the fore and answers some previously unasked questions. For past readers of the Grant County series all this is more important than the crimes which the book is centred around, but for those who are reading this as a stand alone story then the dreadful vicious murders, violence, racism and thrill of the chase gives a great un-put-downable story. I think Slaughter is up there with the best of the crime and thriller writers and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book or any of the Grant County series.

One last thing, if you read this book DO NOT BUY SKIN PRIVILEGE, it is the same book with a different title.

Format: Hardcover
I have read every one of these books and they are fantastic - possibly with the exception of the Lena side of things - she's just annoying.
Anyway, this book was no exception. Fantastically written.
The plot was excellent but I found the connections between all the people a bit hard to follow - closer to the end it was explained better.

If you have read the other books I would advise you to definitely read this one, even if it's just for the ending !! it's completely crucial to the series now.
I know the ending may seem a little crazy and I wasn't happy about it either but just think of the possibilities !! I can't wait to see where Karin Slaughter is heading with this, she's taken a chance that not many other writers would take and I think it's brilliant, it's brave !

If you haven't read the other books don't start with this one !! Read them in order.

Format: Paperback
After the stand-alone of TRIPTYCH we're back in the more familiar part of Georgia called Grant County and the characters who make up the series that now numbers six and revolves around the lives and careers of paediatrician and medical examiner Dr Sara Linton, local Chief of Police Jeffrey Tolliver and his assistant Detective Lena Adams. Actually the majority of this tale takes place in a small Georgia town in Elawah County where Lena has got herself involved with swastika-tattooed crystal meth traders while she tries hard to reconstruct the life she was given to believe was her own and which mainly involves her `user' uncle Hank, her late parents, her late twin sister Sibyl and her now imprisoned ex-boyfriend Ethan. While Lena's mission forms the backbone to the story, it's really the relationship of Sara and Jeffrey that is right at the front of the reader's conscience as they attempt to find the missing Lena and help the local police track down the perpetrators of a number of horrific murders.

The emphasis on Sara's love for her husband Jeffrey - slightly over-cooked throughout the novel - is eventually justified at the very end. Apart from one or two autopsies, when the writer always seems to shift into an altogether more professional and page-turning gear, on reflection this tale is really about Sara's love for Jeffrey, and to a lesser extent Lena's quest for the truth regarding her roots and upbringing. Compared to the other novels in this series, I would suggest that this is more of a romantic thriller than others which have focused rather more on acts of crime and the solving of them; in this tale the bad guys are almost always in the background and there is little in the way of justice or redemption.
