When Special Agent Will Trent arrives in Grant County, he finds a police department determined to protect its own and far too many unanswered questions about a prisoner's death. He doesn't understand why Officer Lena Adams is hiding secrets from him. He doesn't understand her role in the death of Grant County's popular police chief. He doesn't understand why that man's widow, Dr. Sara Linton, needs him now more than ever to help her crack this case. While the police force investigates the murder of a young woman pulled from a frigid lake, Trent investigates the police force, putting pressure on Adams just when she's already about to crack. Caught between two complicated and determined women, trying to understand Linton's passionate distrust of Adams, the facts surrounding Chief Tolliver's death, and the complexities of this insular town, Trent will unleash a case filled with explosive secrets-and encounter a thin blue line that could be murderous if crossed. Spellbinding and keenly paced, Broken is Karin Slaughter at her best. Here is an unforgettable story of raw emotions, dangerous assumptions, the deadly and layered game of betrayal, and a man's determination to expose the most painful of human truths-no matter how deeply they're hidden.or how devastating.

"A young woman is murdered in a small Southern town while the former town doctor is visiting. Reluctantly, she agrees to examine the body and gets sucked into the investigation. The most fascinating aspect of this novel is the complexity of its characters. There's good in the worst and a touch of the devil in the best. Reader Natalie Ross is challenged by the need to differentiate six female characters. She succeeds--each is distinctive, and there's no one-size-fits-all Southern accent here. The shifts from female to male characters are seamless. While there's never a point where the listener is confused about who is speaking in dialogue, the sheer number of characters makes this novel a bit hard to follow. M.S.
