Atlanta, 1974: As a brutal murder and a furious manhunt rock
the cityâ€™s police department, Kate Murphy wonders if her
first day on the job will also be her last. Sheâ€™s determined
to defy her privileged background by making her own
wayâ€”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. Itâ€™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 isnâ€™t the only woman on the force whoâ€™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 cityâ€™s darkest heart.
Relentlessly paced, acutely observed, wickedly funny, and
often heartbreaking, Cop Town is Karin Slaughterâ€™s most
powerful novel yetâ€”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
