(95)Broken by Karin Slaughter

Every Summer for the last several summers, while most female readers are eagerly awaiting the newest from Janet Evanovich, I am eagerly awaiting the newest from Karin Slaughter.

Broken is this year's installment in the Will Trent and Faith Mitchell series that I have come to love. Karin Slaughter stays true to their story and Broken picks up with Faith Mitchell stuck in Atlanta about to give birth on Thanksgiving week. Will is called away from his holiday plans to investigate the death of an inmate while in custody.

Even though Faith Mitchell doesn't play a big part in this novel there are some characters that devoted fans will recognize. Including Sara Lindon and Lena Adams. Once again they are entangled in a case and Will Trent is left to play referee. Will he be able to piece it all together before Sara or Lena fall victim to the killer?

Karin Slaughter knows how to write a good, gritty crime novel. Broken wasn't nearly as gritty as some of her other works, but it is gritty enough for me to say not everyone would enjoy this book. If you are looking for a good mystery to pass away the summer days with, look up Karin Slaughter. While her books feature the same characters, there really isn't a need to read them in any order. Karin does an excellent job of giving the necessary history of Will & Faith to keep you in the loop, whether this be your first book or fifth book. Sit back and enjoy. There is nothing better than a good, gritty, crime novel.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
