Running Time: 15 hours 35 minutes
It’s time for another fantastic Audio Book Tour presented by AudioGo. The great thing about these tours is that you get to sample a bit of the audio at each host site.
Synopsis from Goodreads: Karin Slaughter’s new novel is an epic tale of love, loyalty, and murder that encompasses forty years, two chillingly similar murder cases, and a good man’s deepest secrets.
Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda’s motivation until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before—when Will’s father was imprisoned for murder—this was his home. . . .
Flash back nearly forty years. In the summer Will Trent was born, Amanda Wagner is going to college, making Sunday dinners for her father, taking her first steps in the boys’ club that is the Atlanta Police Department. One of her first cases is to investigate a brutal crime in one of the city’s worst neighborhoods. Amanda and her partner, Evelyn, are the only ones who seem to care if an arrest is ever made.
Now the case that launched Amanda’s career has suddenly come back to life, intertwined with the long-held mystery of Will’s birth and parentage. And these two dauntless investigators will each need to face down demons from the past if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed.
My thoughts: I was first introduced to Karin Slaughter and the Will Trent series when I listened to Fallen last summer. These titles are definitely worth the listen. I am part of the way through Criminal and am finding it just as riveting as Fallen. I look forward to sharing all of my thoughts with you soon. In the meantime you can hop to each of the host sites to experience this audio book for yourself.
