This is my third book that I have read by Karin Slaughter and like with the others could not put it down.

Without revealing the plot let me say that this book is an excellent read that will keep you from wanting to put it down. Each page is filled with enough to hold your interest. The dialogue is believable and the plot first rate. And there is a nice romantic thread that develops throughout. Karin Slaughter has really grown as an author and I look forward to reading each new release.

I was a big fan of Karin Slaughter's early work. While she remains a great writer, for me, her last few novels have fallen a bit short. Fallen has tremendous potential with gripping suspense and characters that stand out. But the cast of characters in this one is quite large and sometimes hard to keep track of. Slaughter's attempt to keep the suspense rendered an often frustratingly vague plot that didn't tie together until the very end. I found the conclusion too convenient in some aspects and a little unbelievable in others. This book is part of an ongoing series. Slaughter fills in plenty of details about her characters' pasts, so I don't think it would be a problem for a reader new to her work to follow along

Wow, where do I even begin with this series? Like I've said before, Karin Slaughter is probably my #1 favorite author and any true fan of the Grant County series can tell you these characters are seriously amazing. They feel like old friends now, so every time I read a new installment in the series it's like reuniting with them all over again. In this book, Faith's mother, Evelyn, is kidnapped and everyone is at a loss as to why. The crime scene is bloody and everyone knows if Evelyn isn't already dead she will be soon. Faith is shocked and terrified for her mother and she has to rely on her partner Will and Dr. Sara Linton to help her find Evelyn before it's too late. The characters in this series are absolutely amazing. I guess before I go too much further, this review might have some spoilers. There is a MAJOR event that takes place in Beyond Reach that changes everything, so if you haven't read that one yet and plan to in the future, I suggest you don't read this whole review. I guess you take that risk with any sequel to a book though. We see Faith sort of fall apart in this one and not without good reason. She's worried about her mother, but she's also worried about something happening to her kids. She's still a very strong, smart woman though and does anything and everything she can to figure out where her mother is. I'll admit, when both Faith and Will arrived on the scene several books ago, I wasn't too pleased. Not that they weren't well written, just that when I'm used to certain characters, change can be difficult. Now I really love them though. Will is very instrumental in trying to solve this case, since Faith is mostly at home protecting her kids. I love how successful he is despite his battle with dyslexia; he's developed ways of organizing his notes and things so that he's very efficient. He still seems to be embarrassed by his handicap, but not as much so as in previous books (probably because pretty much everyone knows about it now). Amanda Wagner (Will and Faith's supervisor, Faith's sort-of Aunt, and one of Evelyn's closest friends) takes charge of most of the investigation, with Will at her side. I wanted to slap her quite a few times in this book, and I know Will did too, for not being forthcoming with information pertinent to the case. She was trying to protect Evelyn and her secrets, but it seemed like every time Will would find out an important piece of information, Amanda already knew about it and so it wasted a lot of time. Even though she's extremely tough, and even that may be an understatement, we see a much softer side of Amanda in this book. Sara gets dragged into the investigation as well, examining the dead bodies that pop up and giving her two cents on the situation. I love Sara and I hate seeing her working in the hospital environment where I'm pretty sure she's unhappy; she needs to go back to having her own practice. Basically I just want to see her happy again. It's been almost 5 years since the "event that shall not be named" and she's still trying to find some normalcy in her life. I loved the twists and turns that are present in all of Karin Slaughter's books. Towards the end I had things figured out, but the ending was still explosive and amazing. Unlike some books, I think this one ended on a very good note so maybe I can rest easy until the next one comes out.

Faith Mitchell, a GBI agent checks on her mother who is watching her child. No answer, and when she goes to investigate, a shoot out occurs, leaving one dead, the mother missing and the baby okay in the shed. Karin Slaughter has created a suspenseful novel filled with fascinating characters that keep this novel moving forward. It is possible her mother who is a retired police officer was a dirty cop and involved with some unsavory people. You won't believe how quickly you will read through this novel. A perfect companion for the beach this summer!

Interesting, but I had to downgrade it because of the astonishing stupidity of all the characters, especially Faith and Evelyn. And of course it is purely ridiculous that Will Trent would have the job he has with his handicap and emotional instability. He could never have passed either the psych or written test.

I have been reading this series of books and this one did not disappoint me. Good characters;good plot.

first time reading this author -- gripping? not the book I read 12 pages of Faith getting ready to answer some Qs. Old lady who happens to take crime scene photos. NADA!

This is my first book by this author and i just couldnt get into it at all. I read halfway through the book and i thought it dragged!

This book drags, not to mention doesn't make much sense. Maybe it's because I have not read the other books in the series, but if this is any indication, I won't bother doing that. I hate the way most of the female characters in this story are rude, pushy and obnoxious. The fact that the character Will allows himself to be bullied constantly, to me, is unrealistic. No man I know would sit still for being treated like that.

It drives me nuts that Amanda only tells Will what she wants him to kmow. Like she's some super cop. Most of Will's time is spent gathering information about the case that his supervisor already knows about and could saved him the time. If Amanda just would have a treamplayer instead of being a crappy supervisor. Amamda has go or change for me ever read these books again.

Big dissapointment from a usually good author. Slow moving and underdeveloped. Struggled through and almost gave up at least 3x.

Ms. slaughter made the characters more dysfunctional in this book than the previous one. I like Will, but I don't like how she continues to weaken his character making him appear to be dumb,weak, and afraid of all the women in his life and definitely afraid to speak up. Amanda and Faith were too overbearing and just rude! Please don't let this happen with Sara. This was a very hard read to me.

Georgia Bureau of Investigations Special Agent Faith Mitchell calls her mom Evelyn, a retired narcotics police officer, who is not answering her phone. Faith sees her mom's door is open with blood on the knob and notices her baby is safely hidden in a nearby shed. Without regard to protocol or her own safety, Mitchell charges into the house where a hostage scenario turns ugly as one person is dead and another individual has a gun pointed at a third party; but mom is not there. Faith and her partner Will Trent search for the former's apparently kidnapped mom who allegedly was a dirty cop who may have been a cop killer. Both (more so Will) also spend time with widow Dr. Sara Linton who has seen first hand plenty of horror in Grant County as the former coroner and wife of the late police chief (see Broken and Undone). Meanwhile Faith has become the prime suspect in the shootout at her mom's residence while some other police retirees come to the assistance of Mitchell and Trent. The latest Georgia police procedural is the usual gritty, gory and somewhat complicated thriller expected from Karin Slaughter. The story line is action-packed with the underlying theme being family secrets can harm relationships. With a convoluted degree of seemingly no separation between key players, readers will still enjoy Fallen while wondering who's done what to whom. Harriet Klausner

Love this series. When first started it I just knew it was all about Faith and that Slaughter would find her a man worthy of her but it veered off into something else - not that I am complaining. Love the Will Trent character and sooooo glad he found Dr. Linton.
