"Slaughter skillfully and assuredly relates the violence of a sociopath, while creating an emotional connection to lives touched by tragedy and addressing current events."--Library Journal on False Witness
Cunningly conceived and written . . . Deeply satisfying.--Washington Post on False Witness
Slaughter reliably delivers high-stakes thrillers, but False Witness is the author at her best, weaving a multi-layered, addictive story with characters you won't soon forget.--The Augusta Chronicleon False Witness
In the enthralling False Witness, Slaughter ramps up her storytelling skills to explore how two sisters cope with the aftermath of a crime. False Witness works well as a psychological exploration of its characters, as a legal thriller and as a family drama. . . . Slaughter's mastery at suspense is at full throttle . . . A thriller that kicks into high gear from the first page to a stunning ending.--Sun-Sentinel (South Florida) on False Witness
"Karin Slaughter is a master of the thriller genre and her genius comes through on every page, in every character, through every plot twist. False Witness is so suspenseful, it's tension palpable, and the action so visual, I can't wait to see its brilliance in film."--Francesca Momplaisir, critically-acclaimed author of My Mother's House
"Karin Slaughter's False Witness is a twisty, searingly contemporary mystery steeped in a dark past, and she weaves a story that catches your breath and keeps you gasping and guessing until the end." --Stacey Abrams, author of While Justice Sleeps
[False Witness] will keep readers transfixed. Slaughter is writing at the top of her game.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on False Witness
Slaughter doesn't save her twists for the end, instead peppering them throughout the intricately layered story amid stomach-churning near misses and gripping character revelations. Equal parts hyperrealistic thriller and epic tragedy, Slaughter's latest is pitch-perfect storytelling.--Booklist (starred review) on False Witness
"Slaughter offers us a high-stakes thriller that handles the tragedy of addiction with empathy and grace. Her heroines are believable, flawed and courageous."--Oyinkan Braithwaite, award-winning author of My Sister, The Serial Killer, on False Witness --Deze tekst verwijst naar een alternatieve kindle_edition editie.

This is a dark story. Karin Slaughter has never shied away from the depths of the adversity her characters face. Child abuse, adult survivors of rape, people in positions of power who abuse that power to extreme extents. These are all fairly common themes in her books. But, False Witness feels even darker.
Callie and Leigh are sisters. On the surface they are very different people. Callie is a drug addict, at her best when working part-time at a vet surgery where she steals maintenance level of drugs and sells them locally. Leigh is a lawyer at a prestigious firm, while she’s separated from her husband she loves him and their daughter dearly.
But, they have a huge secret in common. A secret that someone else knows, and could tear their lives apart if he shares it.
As always it is the strength of Karin Slaughter’s characters that this book finds it’s hook. The desperation and determination shared by Callie and Leigh had me rooting for these characters despite their bad decisions.
Yet there was also a big distraction - Covid and the pandemic loomed large over these pages and it really put me off. At one point it felt like every second page was referring to face masks or hand sanitiser. And, every time they were mentioned it pulled me right out of the story. In a note at the end of the book the author explains why she felt the need to make the pandemic part of the setting, but I really wish she hadn’t. Hand washing, face masks and physical distancing should be left in the real world, reading is how I get away from that.
A good story, but would have been better without so many Covid references.
I will buy the next Karin slaughter book when it comes , I just hope that the quality of story and subject matter are not overwhelmed by real life and spoil it
So, the first part of the book was marred for me and it took me a while to get into it - unheard of for a Slaughter novel - but I still thoroughly enjoyed it and raced to the end. Enjoy!
