Relentless pacing, complex characters, and gritty realism, all set against the backdrop of a city on the edge. Slaughter's eye for detail and truth is unmatched.

Kathleen Early is no stranger to Karin Slaughter's work. With each subsequent book she narrates, her ease with Slaughter's worlds seems to deepen. In this most recent release, an array of Southern women pulls Early's strengths front and center. She enriches the atmosphere and characters through subtle variations in accents, tone, and intensity. With insightful precision, she interprets rookie officer Kate Murphy's growing confidence, veteran cop Gail Patterson's spunky attitude, even strung-out prostitute Violet's abject terror. Early depicts the male roles with an equal strength and emphasizes Slaughter's sharp humor. Cop Town is a celebration of pioneering women in law enforcement, and Early is hosting the party. Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award.

-- "AudioFile"

A superb, very gritty look at both a city and era in social and political flux. It's also a searing portrait of family ties and how our pasts can shape our futures, as well as a gripping procedural, with some genuinely terrifying moments. Kate and Maggie are wonderful creations.

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

Winning leads, the retro setting, and a riveting plot make this one of Slaughter's best.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

Violent crime, police politics, and race relations all figure in this scintillating standalone...Slaughter does her usual fine job of exploring intriguingly troubled characters.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

A gritty procedural in which the streets of 1970s Atlanta are just as dangerous for cops as for criminals...There's nothing pretty about this divided cop town, but in exposing its ugliness, Slaughter forces us to question whether times really have changed.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

One of the most brutally realistic books that I have read in recent memory; Slaughter's literary talents are given full rein here, and the results are stunning. Cop Town is one of this year's must-read books.
