Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“[A] hold-on-to-your-hat, nail-biting story.”—The Washington Post
“Slaughter’s best yet, by far.”—Lee Child

 
Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda’s motivation until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before, when his father was imprisoned for murder, this was Will’s home. It appears that the case that launched Amanda’s career forty years ago has suddenly come back to life—and it involves the long-held mystery of Will’s birth and parentage. Now these two dauntless investigators will each need to face down demons from the past if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed.
 
Includes Karin Slaughter’s short story “Snatched” and a preview of the Will Trent novel Unseen

“With every page of this story the tension mounts. . . . If you have a hunger for a rich and fulfilling novel then you owe it to yourself to pick up Criminal.”—Huffington Post
 
“A masterpiece of character, atmosphere and riveting suspense, Criminal is the most powerful and moving novel yet from one of the most gifted storytellers at work today.”—Chicago Daily Herald

    I’m hooked on KS and I loved most of the characters in this book. The ending was a bit of a stretch and made me roll my eyes a little and there were a few things and just felt thrown together to end things but great read for sure.

    I'm a huge Karin Slaughter fan & have now completed every single one of her books. Criminal does shed light on Will Trent's childhood, but I was pretty disappointed with having to read back & forth from "present day" and "1975." I don't mind this type of writing & can usually follow along, but this was a bit much. I often had to re-read pages or double check what year the characters were in. It was an interesting storyline & I loved getting to know the younger Amanda & Evelyn, but if you skip this book in her Series, you won't be lost. Looking forward to her next book ;)
  • Loved It!

    Ties up so many loose ends in the Trent series that it is a veritable Gordian Knot. I did not want it to end, and look forward to whatever is next. Have read every book, and wait with bated breath for the next. A perfect unexpected ending.
  • Great read!

    Enjoyed this book so much I could not put it down. I am looking forward to the next. Wish a book could be written as fast as we read them. Seem like forever before a new book is published. Karin Slaughter is one of my favorite authors.
