Sue Recommends Broken by Karin Slaughter
Broken brings together characters from two of Karin Slaughter's mystery series--the Atlanta with Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (2 book series) and Grant County with Dr Sara Linton and Police Officer Lena Adams (8 book series)--in an intriguing search for who and why a college student is stabbed and thrown into the local lake. The action is fast and the deaths keep coming as Will Trent tries to uncover secrets within the walls of the Police Station.
Will Trent is such an unusual character--an extremely bright, articulate investigator who is hiding secrets of his own (dyslexia, an unhappy marriage, and a "crush" on Dr. Sara Linton). He seems so mild mannered but is able to outwit suspects and witnesses through his easy interview style.
I enjoyed this novel so much that I am anxious to go back and read the other Will Trent books--Triptych and Fractured.
If you enjoy audiobooks, I felt that Natalie Ross performed well in her reading of this novel. SH
