Will Trent and Faith Mitchell are back. They have been called in on a case that hits a little too close to home for Will Trent. There is one dead body and enough blood to indicate that there should another body somewhere. Evidence points to the fact that the other body belongs to Trent's ex, Angie. When her car turns up at a local mortuary they are positive that she is dead. Then there is the letter that Trent gets from Angie that says "Of you are reading this I am dead." What is her connection to the ex-cop they found dead at the scene? And what is Angie's connection to one of Atlanta's most famous residents, an NBA star who is already on Trent's radar for rape. Faith and Amanda are desperate to find Angie - dead or alive- for the not knowing is going to destroy a man they love.
I have been reading about Will Trent and Faith Mitchell for years now. They are great characters who are flawed in their own ways, but are loyal to a fault. Especially Will Trent. He had a pretty brutal childhood and the only constant from that life is Angie. Even now that Will is in a happy, healthy relationship with Sara Linton he can't permanently let go of Angie. For the first time, that I can remember anyway, a portion of the book is told from Angie's viewpoint. She is bat-shit crazy, that can't be denied, but she has a pretty good reason for getting involved in the mess she is in. - CLICK HERE FOR SPOILERS - . In the end Will Trent gets the best possible resolution for him and his future with Sara.
Bottom line - The Kept Woman is Karin Slaughter at her best. While there is a lot of history between the characters in The Kept Woman, a new reader is not going to have problems keeping up. A great read if you are looking for a mystery to keep you entertained.

I am an avid reader who loves to read and will read anything put in front of me. I started this blog long before Goodreads
I have been tangled in a web of books for many, many years. I created this blog before Goodreads was around to keep track of the books I have read. Since it's inception I have reviewed almost 1,000 books.
