‘One of the boldest thriller writers working today’ TESS GERRITSEN
‘Her characters, plot, and pacing are unrivalled’ MICHAEL CONNELLY
The eighth Will Trent novel, from the #1 bestselling author
A body is discovered in an empty Atlanta warehouse. It's the body of an ex-cop, and from the moment Special Agent Will Trent walks in he knows this could be the most devastating case of his career. Bloody footprints leading away from the scene reveal that another victim - a woman - has left the scene and vanished into thin air. And, worst of all, the warehouse belongs to the city's biggest, most politically-connected, most high-profile athlete - a local hero protected by the world's most expensive lawyers. A local hero Will has spent the last six months investigating on a brutal rape charge.
But for Will - and also for Dr Sara Linton, the GBI's newest medical examiner - the case is about to get even worse. Because an unexpected discovery at the scene reveals a personal link to Will's troubled past. The consequences will wreak havoc on his life and the lives of those he loves, those he works with, and those he pursues.
But Sara's scene-of-the-crime diagnosis is that they only have a few hours to find the missing woman before she bleeds out . . .

As always Karen doesn't disspoint, her writing is brilliant and the storyline Is interesting.
I have to say, she did a great job showing us what Angie is all about, having read her previous works it was easy to hate the character, but after reading this I found myself having some respect for the layered character.
I really felt for Sara in this book, there was a lot of emotional beating for her to take, loving will isn't an easy job and this book showed it.
But I still can't stop myself for rooting for will and Sara, relationships aren't easy and karin has shown that beautifully with these two.
I also liked the little snippets of insight into Amandas personality, it's interesting to see Character who always comes across as tough and cold to show just a glance of the caring person they are, I love her and wills relationship.
Over all I applaud karin for another amazing book that's filled with humor, complicated relationships, interesting storylines and details.
Can't wait for the next book!
The Kept Woman is the eighth outing for her character, Will Trent. I rather enjoy his idiosyncrasies.They make him interesting and different to other detectives in this genre. Slaughter is just amazing at characterization: as much as I love Will for his flaws, I dislike very strongly Angie for her selfishness. Slaughter's writing is not for the faint hearted. It is gritty and dark, very gritty and dark. I have warned you! I also found this book a bit confusing. It has a great many characters many of whom are involved in different story lines, the time periods include past and present and family relationships seem to crop up where you would not expect them.
Sara, Will's girlfriend, is the medical examiner and is called to a murder where the dead body is that of a police officer. Sara realizes that the extensive amount of blood does not belong to the corpse, but belongs to a woman. They must find the missing woman as she may be close to death with the amount of blood lost, whether she is a victim or a killer.
The body is found in a night club owned by a basketball star that was accused of rape. A case that Will had been investigating. With high priced lawyers, and other powerful allies, the athlete was able to walk. And if that is not enough on his plate, Angie is back in his life.
This book was an especially emotional rollercoaster. We get to know Angie's story. She is still married to Will and The Kept Woman gives the reader insight to how she got to be the way she is. If you enjoy complicated, crime thrillers. The Kept Woman is the novel for you.
Serial killer thrillers are my genre of choice, and Karin Slaughter is up there with the best of them. I really admire her writing style and she writes stories that I enjoy. Feet up, phone of the hook lose yourself in a well thought out puzzley read and R-E-L-A-X
Looking forward to the next one.
