Publisher's Summary

On an ordinary spring day, Special Agent Faith Mitchell of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation returns home to a nightmare. Expecting to find her mother minding Faith’s new baby daughter Emma, she is horrified to discover Emma locked in the shed, her mother’s safe open, her gun missing and a trail of blood to the front door. Without waiting for back-up, Faith enters the house to a scene of carnage. It has been torn apart and a man lies dead in a pool of blood. She stumbles across two more intruders, and within minutes they too are shot dead. And when the Atlanta police force turns up, Faith has some difficult questions to answer. But she has some desperate questions of her own. What were the killers searching for? Ex-Atlanta police Chief Evelyn Mitchell was once under investigation by Faith’s partner Will Trent. Is her mother directly involved this time, and where is she now?

With Faith suspended from duty, Will, together with the help of Dr. Sara Linton, must piece together the fragments of a brutal and complicated case – and catch a deeply troubled and vicious murderer with only one thing on his mind. To keep on killing until the truth is finally revealed…

Not one of her best

I love Karin Slaughter's books and think it would be impossible for her to write badly, but this one didn't grab me. Maybe it is the focus on different characters than is the norm. Maybe it is the setting of gangs in Atlanta. Maybe it is the fact that some characters made me feel repulsed. Maybe it is the rather confusing plot. Maybe it is a mix of all of those plus the fact the narrator's delivery in a high pitched perky voice. I didn't hate this one but didn't love it either.

Another brilliant Karin Slaughter novel

I have read or listened to every book so far, and am never disappointed - in fact I find myself waiting for new releases! Fallen is no exception, fast paced, tense, funny at times, and characters I just love. I'm always left wanting more.

Enjoyable

Having never read anything by karin Slaughter befor I thought I'd give it a go as saw mixed but mainly good reviews and must say I was impressed, I really enjoyed the story it kept my interest and did not find it predictable which is always a plus. Also enjoyed the narrator and would listen to more from both karin and the narrator Jennifer Woodward.

Brilliant!

If you're familiar with the characters then this is the book for you! The development of the relationships between Will and the woment in his life weaves a tangled web which leaves you constantly wondering which way it'll turn next. Action packed, great one liners and a twist you don't see coming. Lots of clever detail which leads you on perfectly to the next book in the series.

Great book - Wrong Narrator

Loved the book but the narrator's voice for some of the characters was grating and quite frankly irritating. Jennifer's voice for the main character Faith was so high pitched it almost made my ears bleed so thank God the story was interesting enough for me to tolerate it and her male voices especially for Caleb and Jeremy and quite frankly all the young men were terrible. This book suited a male and female narrator - it was too much for Jennifer and frankly spoiled the total enjoyment of the book for me.

Good

Decent addition to the series, but not quite as gripping as the other two I've read (#4 and #8) which I loved.

A favorite Writer & a great reader

Karin Slaughter is a great crime/thriller writer, characters are interesting enough to get involved with on an emotional level. Jen Woodward is a delight to the ear, clear change in expression for each character.

This story is one of my favorites from the series of Will Trent.
