In addition to being an exhaustive and gimlet-eyed social history of modern Atlanta, especially its flawed criminal justice system and law-enforcement agencies, “Criminal” is the kind of hold-on-to-your-hat, nail-biting story Slaughter has become world-famous for.
This week Margaret Cannon discusses crime fiction that will keep you flipping pages all summer: novels by Karin Slaughter, Carsten Stroud, Lars Kepler, Anne Holt, John Lawrence Reynolds and Jeffrey Round.
Novelist Karin Slaughter has more tricks up her sleeve than Houdini. Just when you think you know all there is to know about the recurring characters in her books she slips some new and startling information into the mix.
In an exclusive for Shotsmag Confidential and in conjunction with the publication of “Criminal” Karin kindly agreed to be briefly interviewed by Will Trent and answer some of those pressing questions that we would all like to know the answer to.
Besprochen werden diesmal: “Eismord” von Giles Blunt, “Das vergessene Kind” von Kate Atkinson, “Tote Augen” von Karin Slaughter, “Das Tamtam der Angst” von Roman Scolombe, “Spur der toten Mädchen” von Michael Connelly und noch einige mehr.
