Book: Karen Slaughter - Broken

26 November 2010

When the body of a young woman is discovered in Lake Grant, a note left on the shore points to suicide.

But it quickly becomes clear this is in fact a cold-blooded murder.

Former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton is drawn into the case. The chief suspect – a slightly retarded young man – is desperate to see her.

But when she arrives at the local police station he has committed suicide and scrawled the words “Not me” in blood on the walls.

Sara isn’t convinced by his earlier alleged confession and is deeply suspicious of the detective in charge.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation sends Special Agent Will Trent to investigate. He’s met by hostility from the local police and a wall of silence.

It seems as if the truth will never be told because the only person who knows what happened is dead.

Spellbinding and fast paced, Broken is Karin Slaughter at her best.
