Summary

The latest novel in the Will Trent series from number one best-selling author Karin Slaughter.

A body is discovered in an empty Atlanta warehouse. It's the body of an ex-cop, and from the moment Special Agent Will Trent walks in he knows this could be the most devastating case of his career. Bloody footprints leading away from the scene reveal that another victim - a woman - has left the scene and vanished into thin air. And, worst of all, the warehouse belongs to the city's biggest, most politically connected, most high-profile athlete - a local hero protected by the world's most expensive lawyers. A local hero Will has spent the last six months investigating on a brutal rape charge.

But for Will - and for Dr. Sara Linton, the GBI's newest medical examiner - the case is about to get even worse. Because an unexpected discovery at the scene reveals a personal link to Will's troubled past.

The consequences will wreak havoc on his life and the lives of those he loves, those he works with, and those he pursues. But Sara's scene-of-the-crime diagnosis is that they have only a few hours to find the missing woman before she bleeds out....

What's happening

Is there anything you would change about this book?

What is happening to Will Trent and all the other characters in this book? If I had this group of ill fitting detective's in my squad I wouldn't bother trying to solve crimes, I would just sign everyone in to the local mental facility for a check up. Whinny, moaning, complaining, are they trying to solve a murder or wallow in their despair, this is suppose to be a work of fiction, not real life.

Would you ever listen to anything by Karin Slaughter again?

Yes but not this character nor narrator

What didn’t you like about Jennifer Woodward’s performance?

As for the narrator, she reads well but her voices especially the male again come over weak, reflecting the rest of the book.

Did The Kept Woman inspire you to do anything?

Yes return the book

Decent

To fluffy in places with inter relationship stuff going on and on and on and so much introspection.

However, the story line is sound and the perform and ok. Except for the German accent which is more Arnold Schwarzenegger then rich lawyer.

Too much

There was just too much of the relationship between Will and Angie. It went on and on and on. I got bored with that part of the book. Shame. Not sure I will listen to another in case the author repeats the same mistake.

Brilliant

I have read many of the Will Trent books, but the audible format really brought this story to life and I understood the relationships between the characters as I never had in print. Fantastic

I'm hooked!

Thoroughly gripping and intense from beginning to end but definitely not for the faint -hearted.
