Publisher's Summary

Lena Adams has spent her life struggling to escape her past. She has only unhappy memories of Reece, the small town that nearly destroyed her. She's made a new life for herself as a police detective in Heartsdale, a hundred miles away. But nothing could prepare her for the violence that explodes when she is forced to return. A vicious murder leaves a young woman incinerated beyond recognition. And Lena is the only suspect. When Heartsdale Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver, Lena's boss, receives word that his detective has been arrested, he has no choice but to go to Lena's aid, taking with him his wife, Medical Examiner Sara Linton. But soon after their arrival, a second victim is found. The town closes ranks. And both Jeffrey and Sara find themselves entangled in a horrifying underground world of bigotry and rage - a violent world which shocks even them, a world that puts their own lives in jeopardy.
Only Jeffrey and Sara can free Lena from the web of lies, betrayal, and brutality that has trapped her. But can they discover the truth before the killer strikes again?

Don't bother!

What would have made Skin Privilege better?

To have listened to the complete story. The abridged version was a complete waste of time. (I downloaded this version in error!)

Has Skin Privilege put you off other books in this genre?

Only abridged books

How could the performance have been better?

shame about the poor recording

The book is good. Shame about the poor sound levels, skips in the recording and odd sound effects that broke me out of the narrative

jumpy and hard to follow. not a good example

not sure if the book or the recording but it was very jumpy not a good example of a Karin Slaughter book. I think the audio was fast forward or glitching regularly.

great story, frustrating recording

The story was fantastic however this recording jumped a number of times and I missed some critical parts of chapters. The chapters were not identified correctly, the audiobook showed only 5 chapters which were 1+ hours however most of Karin Slaughter's other work has many more chapters of much shorter length. The end of the chapters in the audiobook book had background music which drowned out the story. The chapters on the audiobook were not true ends to chapters, they often ended in the middle of a chapter and then the start of the next chapter would repeat the last couple of sentences just read!
