“A complex, gripping and deadly serious novel that reflects anew Slaughter's abundant talent.”—The Washington Post
“An amazing effort . . . This is [Karin] Slaughter’s best book to date, and readers unfamiliar with her work will find this one a perfect place to begin.”—Associated Press
There’s no police training stronger than a cop’s instinct. Faith Mitchell’s mother isn’t answering her phone. Her front door is open. There’s a bloodstain above the knob. Everything Faith learned in the academy goes out the window when she charges into her mother’s house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room, a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn’t see is her mother. When the hostage situation turns deadly, Faith is left with too many questions. She’ll need the help of her partner, Will Trent, and trauma doctor Sara Linton to get some answers. But Faith isn’t just a cop anymore, she’s a witness—and a suspect. To find her mother, Faith will have to cross the thin blue line and bring the truth to light—or bury it forever.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Karin Slaughter's Unseen.
“An absolute master . . . Slaughter creates some wonderfully complex and mature female characters, a distinctive achievement in the world of thrillers.”—Chicago Tribune
“Slaughter has always known how to pace the suspense in her stellar crime novels, but she really outdoes herself here. . . . [She] reveals the heart and soul of her characters within a highly choreographed, unrelentingly suspenseful plot.”—Booklist (starred review)

  • One of author's poorer books

    By Bill1369
    This might have been a good read if half the book wasn't needless meandering about the characters.
  • Excellent

    By TacoBear
    Reading this series in order and Fallen is simply irresistible. The characters literally come to life in full vivid detail. If you've followed along with Will, Amanda and the rest of the Atlanta cast your desire to learn more about each one is quenched in this book.

  • Very good but not her best

    By Tlanden
    I love this author!! This one started out with a bang but tended to drag in the middle. Pretty good ending though.

    I have read every one of slaughter's books, and am always anxiously awaiting the next! She can draw you into the story so well, and though you don't have to have read the previous books, if you have, you really feel as though you know the characters. When Jeffery was killed in a previous book, I was so pissed! Until I went online and read her "spoiler" in which she explained her rationale, and explained how hard it was for her to do because of how real he was to her, and that made me understand! She is by far my favorite author, and can't wait for the next book!
