The Silent Wife – Karin Slaughter


This is another brilliant read from Karin Slaughter.  There are no punches pulled in this gritty crime novel.  Once again, I was gripped from the beginning and couldn’t put the novel down.

Agent Will Trent and forensic pathologist Sara Linton are involved and are rapidly becoming two of my favourite characters in crime novels.

The book begins with a death at a prison. Will is immediately in contact with a convicted paedophile who then accuses Sara’s dead husband, Jeffery, of convicting him for a crime he wasn’t guilty of. As the case is investigated it becomes clear that there are inconsistencies. In addition, new victims are discovered with same MO. The storyline intertwines between the past and the present.

Thoroughly enjoyable read, once again from Karin Slaughter.

Thank you to Harper Collins, NetGalley and Karin Slaughter for the ARC, in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Great read.  Highly recommended.
