Karin Slaughter is a wonder woman. A masterful storyteller. If I start going on too much about how GOOD this book is, I might give something away.
I wouldn't want to spoil the delicious twists, surprises and revelations that await the lucky reader.
I will say that, just like all of Ms. Slaughter's stories, it is written with heartfelt emotion and populated with rich, full characters that you'll care deeply about.
This is also a fine look at family, the ties that bind and...love.
Beautifully paced and structured and chock-full of shocks that will send you reeling.
