Broken by Karin Slaughter
I heard Karin Slaughter speak at a conference last year and she was one of the best speakers I’ve ever heard. And she loves libraries, so you have to like her! Finally I’ve gotten around to listening to one of her novels and yet again I’ve found a suspense author I wish I had started reading sooner.
In Broken a girl’s body is found in the lake with a suicide note on the shore. But wait! She was actually murdered! The local small town police department arrests a suspect, he confesses, and later commits suicide in his cell. But wait! He couldn’t have done it! And so it goes…to its very interesting conclusion.
She’s really great at keeping you guessing. I listened to this book and I was on disc nine of eleven when I finally got an inkling of the motive behind the murders. And that was okay since the GBI agent investigating the case didn’t catch on until I did either.
