On Tour: #TheKeptWoman by Karin Slaughter #TLCBookTours ~ My Thoughts


The Kept Woman

The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter
Series: Will Trent #8
Hardcover, 480 pages
Published: September 20th 2016 by William Morrow 

Husbands and wives. Mothers and daughters. The past and the future.

Secrets bind them. And secrets can destroy them. 

The author of the acclaimed standalone Pretty Girls returns with this long-awaited new novel in her bestselling Will Trent series—an electrifying, emotionally complex thriller that plunges the Georgia detective into the darkest depths of a case that just might destroy him.

With the discovery of a murder at an abandoned construction site, Will Trent and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are brought in on a case that becomes much more dangerous when the dead man is identified as an ex-cop.

Studying the body, Sara Linton—the GBI’s newest medical examiner and Will’s lover—realizes that the extensive blood loss didn't belong to the corpse. Sure enough, bloody footprints leading away from the scene indicate there is another victim—a woman—who has vanished . . . and who will die soon if she isn’t found.

Will is already compromised, because the site belongs to the city’s most popular citizen: a wealthy, powerful, and politically connected athlete protected by the world’s most expensive lawyers—a man who’s already gotten away with rape, despite Will’s exhaustive efforts to put him away.

But the worst is yet to come. Evidence soon links Will’s troubled past to the case . . . and the consequences will tear through his life with the force of a tornado, wreaking havoc for Will and everyone around him, including his colleagues, family, friends—and even the suspects he pursues.

Relentlessly suspenseful and furiously paced, peopled with conflicted, fallible characters who leap from the page, The Kept Woman is a searing novel of love, loss, and redemption. A seamless blend of twisty police procedural and ingenious psychological thriller, it marks Karin Slaughter’s triumphant return to her most popular series, sure to please new and diehard fans alike.

My thoughts about The Kept Woman ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—'For the first time in her life, she cradled her daughter in her arms.'

Wow! Another super intense, didn't want it to stop, story from a fabulous author! I have loved everything I have read by Karin. This is book #8 in the Will Trent series and I have to be honest here, I have only read one other book in this series. But.... I didn't feel like I was missing anything by jumping in where I did. This book was intriguing and exciting, all on it's own.

I love Will and I really want to know more about him. He truly is trying to make a good, happy life for himself, even when the past creeps back into his world. The Kept Woman is full of twists and turns and has plenty of action that had me flying through the pages. Karin is a master storyteller and is one of my 'must-read' authors now. I just love her stories!

I received this book for review from HarperCollins and TLC Book Tours.
