What a Relief,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Broken: (Will Trent / Atlanta series 4) (The Will Trent Series) (Kindle Edition)
I have just finished, with difficulty, a Patricia Cornwell book - the wildly improbable plots are such a disappointment, and she used to be so good. And I've gone right off Lee Childs stuff, Jack Reacher is such an impossible superman, he can outfight any man on the planet. If I ever met anyone like that in real life I bet I'd be bored to death, just as long as he didn't batter me to death first! So it was a huge relief to sink back into a Karin Slaughter book - that's what a thriller should be like.
Her characters are real life people who get tired, confused and frightened - just like the rest of us, but still manage to find their way through to the solution anyway. The relationship between Sara and Will is totally engaging and more interesting to me than the plot details. This the third one of hers I've read so there are plenty more to keep me going.
The only other writer that I've read recently, that I can reccomend, is Ian Okell his latest 'Charlie Chaplin's Uncle' keeps up his usual high standard.
