Publisher's Summary

The past will always find you. A woman is found brutally murdered in a sordid Atlanta apartment. Her blood-soaked body bears a startling similarity to a woman found dead almost 40 years earlier.

Critic Reviews

“The best Will Trent novel yet from the aptly named American.” (Picked as one of the Telegraph’s top ten crime books to take on holiday)
“Karin Slaughter has carved a career out of thriller writing... her prolific sales have seen her on the best-seller lists for more than a decade. She has brought to life a murderer whose depravities will test even the hardest of hearts.” ( Press Association )

Suspense

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes the constant back to the past and to present jumpings

What did you like best about this story?

The last hour of the book

What three words best describe Jennifer Woodward’s performance?

Clear, soothening and yet firm voice

Did Criminal inspire you to do anything?

no

Any additional comments?

Quite a lot of characters, hence need to pick on memory, to recollect who is who. Which is not very soothing for an audiobook.

great read!

Am a huge fan of Karin's work and liked how the relationship between Sara Linton and Will Trent has developed throughout the series. This book follows on from her last book Fallen. This book filled in the gaps of the backgrounds of some of the main characters, Will, Amanda, Angie. I loved this book especially finding out about Will's father but I won't spoil it for you. I wasn't too keen on the narrator when she did Fallen but I have to say she was much much better narrating Criminal. Looking forward to the next one!

Will Trent

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would if this was the kind of book they listen to

Which character – as performed by Jennifer Woodward – was your favourite?

I'm not a big fan of Jennifer Woodward

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes definitely

Any additional comments?

With this book you get to know Will's background, the murder of his mum and his dad's criminal dealings , how Will was found, what secrets Amanda is keeping, and what input she has made in Will's life and the list goes on.......... I loved the storyline about Amanda and Evelin when they first became detectives and the sexism and other obstacles that faced back in 70's. I would love to read books based on them I'm sure that would make for some good reading.

Went on and on

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes and no, if you are interested in Will's story then yes, but it dragged out.

Would you be willing to try another book from Karin Slaughter? Why or why not?

Yes, sometimes she produces a gem
