Publisher's Summary

When Special Agent Will Trent arrives in Grant County, he finds a police department determined to protect its own and far too many unanswered questions about a prisoner’s death. He doesn’t understand why Officer Lena Adams is hiding secrets from him. He doesn’t understand her role in the death of Grant County’s popular police chief. He doesn’t understand why that man’s widow, Dr. Sara Linton, needs him now more than ever to help her crack this case.
While the police force investigates the murder of a young woman pulled from a frigid lake, Trent investigates the police force, putting pressure on Adams just when she’s already about to crack. Caught between two complicated and determined women, trying to understand Linton’s passionate distrust of Adams, the facts surrounding Chief Tolliver’s death, and the complexities of this insular town, Trent will unleash a case filled with explosive secrets - and encounter a thin blue line that could be murderous if crossed.
Spellbinding and keenly paced, Broken is Karin Slaughter at her best. Here is an unforgettable story of raw emotions, dangerous assumptions, the deadly and layered game of betrayal, and a man’s determination to expose the most painful of human truths - no matter how deeply they’re hidden...or how devastating.

As Usual-Good Read

Success with dyslexia! Will Trent can solve any crime with his careful organization. He is a master of diplomacy while at the same time an under appreciated, and often abused manly male. Lena Adams is her usual secretive self! Of course, Sarah has to work through things to help make sense of the situation. Winding plot with lots of ups and downs.

I love these characters

I love the idea of a group of reoccuring characters moving through different books. I hope to enjoy all of this series as much as the first two I've listened to.
