Mystery

Atlanta, 1974: As a brutal murder and a furious manhunt rock the city’s police department, Kate Murphy wonders if her first day on the job will also be her last. She’s determined to defy her privileged background by making her own way—wearing a badge and carrying a gun. But for a beautiful young woman, life will be anything but easy in the macho world of the Atlanta PD, where even the female cops have little mercy for rookies. It’s also the worst day possible to start given that a beloved cop has been gunned down, his brothers in blue are out for blood, and the city is on the edge of war.

Kate isn’t the only woman on the force who’s feeling the heat. Maggie Lawson followed her uncle and brother into the ranks to prove her worth in their cynical eyes. When she and Kate, her new partner, are pushed out of the citywide search for a cop killer, their fury, pain, and pride finally reach the boiling point. With a killer poised to strike again, they will pursue their own line of investigation, risking everything as they venture into the city’s darkest heart.

Relentlessly paced, acutely observed, wickedly funny, and often heartbreaking, Cop Town is Karin Slaughter’s most powerful novel yet—a tour de force of storytelling from our foremost master of character, atmosphere, and suspense.

Re: Cop Town

My first time ever commenting on my own review. I am always careful not
to give away too much for fear that I would ruin it for the next reader.
Cop Town is one of the most multi leveled story I've ever been blessed to
review. Every page opens up another facet in Karin Slaughters genius as
an author. What I originally pegged as a supporting cast of characters
quickly became central to this amazing crime novel. Be prepared to be
shocked, grossed out, angered and laugh out loud.
If there was a star rating this book would blow it out of the roof.
If you only get the chance to read one book this summer - Cop Town
should be that book. Come back with your comments and let me know if
you agree.
