Karin Slaughter raises the stakes once again, taking this genre for a thrillride. She captivates with BROKEN, her best storytelling yet, and takes her vivid and tried and true characters in new and unforgettable directions. Unlike so many others in her field, Slaughter NEVER phones it in. She is truly the hardest working thriller writer on the market, and the one with the most visionary and wicked imagination. I could barely wait for this one to pop today. I'm stunned by the misinformation and lack of facts in the front page review, whose writer proudly but ignorantly states this book was released in 09. Reviewers should have the good sense to fact-check before mouthing off. This one is a winner and, as is always the case with Slaughter, a serious departure.

Last Slaughter Book I'll Read

Broken is a good name for this book because to me that's exactly what the Grant County series is...broken. Killing off Jeffrey Tolliver has destroyed this series for me. While Slaughter writes fantastic mysteries that keep you guessing, they also tend to be rather dark. In the earlier Grant County novels, this was balanced with the journey and ongoing love story of Sara and Jeffrey. However, now there is no balance and I found this book just dark and depressing. Broken is set 4 years after Jeffrey's death, but it might as well have been the day after. All the characters in Grant County, including Sara that returned, seem to have gone on a downward spiral unable to move past Jeffrey's death. If the book isn't focusing on Will Trent solving the mystery, it waxes nostalgic about Jeffrey, reminding fans that there won't be a happy ending. The biggest insult to me is the fact that Lena, who is partially responsible for Jeffrey's death, is now involved with Jeffrey's biological son and really hasn't redeemed herself at all. Maybe there is some greater plan for these characters, but frankly I don't care anymore. I'm disappointed and walking away from a series that used to be fantastic.
