Characters - none of the characters are that likeable or credible. Even Will who is meant to be vulnerable and measured seems to exhibit the behaviour of an inarticulate spoilt brat at times.
Plot - the plot such as it is wanders all over the place. Many little side avenues are started but not closed off - what happened to the victim in the prison? Was the Chief exonerated ? Did Lena come good? etc etc I found myself reading and rereading pages to try and follow the slow-moving thought. The time changes from past to present didn't really flow either.
Violence - I've read some violent crime novels in my time but the level of detail in this book felt like it came from the mind of a sadist who was revelling in the descriptions. The abuse of the women was in my view misogynistic and unnecessary in a work of fiction. Any decent editor would have been able to ameliorate this. A more articulate writer would have been able to give more subtle hints of violence and give glimpses of horror rather than detail every piece of ripped flesh. Disappointing!
The overall feel of the book was it was far too long, fairly boring for most stretches and wasn't even satisfying at the end. The book peaked in the first chapter and went downhill continuously from their. Avoid!!
Wandering Plot Line - Unlikeable Characters - Misogynistic & Sadistic
This is the series for crime investigation thriller series, many authors aspire to write like Slaughter and many do well but this is pure genius as soon as l read the first page, my shoulders relaxed I switched off and got stuck into the story. Slaughter has a way of writing that's hard to define, the filler details are concise and minimal so you get the background information without having to read loads and the back story is always present in each book so even if someone hasn't read the series they can still engage in the book and throughly enjoy it.
Karin Slaughter books are on my to read again pile, the Will Trent series, which is the current running series including The Silent Wife is my favourite. Will Trent is not your usual investigator with his learning difficulties but it makes him loveable and as a reader I love hearing his approach to his work overcoming his difficulties and his relationship with Sara is just awesome. I was sad when Jeffery Tolliver died at the end of the Grant County series and I had no idea why Slaughter had done this. Then Will Trent arrived and it all made sense. But lovely to see Jeffery back in this book, historical events relevant to the current investigation but still lovely to have his character in action, and to see another side to the Lena character and see how poor she was as a police officer in the beginning. I didn't really get the dislike of her, she was more a rough diamond but seeing her unravel as a new officer was an insight.
The Silent Wife is another 5 star book and will be a enjoyed by all who read it. A decisive, well written beautifully planned thriller again from Karin Slaughter.
I cannot fault her books at all, they epitomise the perfect book for me, they have everything.
If you haven't read Karin Slaughter before, start at the beginning with Blindsighted... Best read in order.
All cleverly told by jumping back to early in the series with flashback chapters that link seamlessly into the current day action, played out over a couple of days following a prison uprising. It took me less than a day and a half to devour this eagerly awaited tale of Will and Sara and that took a lot of discipline, I could have happily stayed up all night and finished it in half the time. There are twists, turns, surprises and a few typical Slaughter like gruesome bits, all adding to the sum total of another great read.
I hesitate to say anything that might dampen someone elses enjoyment of the story so will simply say the team(s) are following up on what they discover to be a serial killer. She's tinkered with the timeline, so the twenty years we have spent with the characters is now just eight, but it works (though it likely means Sara is one of the strongest women in fiction, she's been through so much in that time) and hopefully means many more years of Will Trent, Sara Linton and the team. Believeable, readable and a tightly crafted tale that left me (as ever) wanting more. Thank you Karin, look forward to the next twenty years.
This comes across as a collections of the authors` horrible imaginings---very little in the way of suspense and far too many loose ends. I wouldn`t recommend this book, it`s one of the worst I`ve read in a long time.
