Publisher's Summary

It's the most dangerous case of Will Trent's career. He knows this from the moment he sets foot in the abandoned Atlanta warehouse where a body lies on the floor - the body of an ex-cop. Bloody footprints leading away from the scene reveal that another victim, evidently a woman, was carried away and has vanished into thin air. And, worst of all, the warehouse belongs to the city's biggest and most high-profile athlete - a local hero protected by the world's most expensive lawyers. A hero married to Will's ex-wife. A hero whom Will's superiors at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation have spent the last six months investigating for rape.
But for Will - and also for Sara Linton, the GBI's newest medical examiner - the case is about to get even worse. Because an unexpected discovery at the scene reveals a personal link to Will's troubled past, and the consequences will wreak havoc on his life and the lives of those he loves, those he works with, and those he pursues.
Relentlessly suspenseful and furiously paced, The Kept Woman marks Karin Slaughter's triumphant return to her most popular series.

Is this the end or new beginning for Angie?

Would you listen to The Kept Woman again? Why?

Probably will. I often relisten to Karin Slaughter's books a second time. There is usually something I miss along the way.


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

Okay how about in a day and a half.


Any additional comments?

I have really enjoyed the Grant county series and then the Will Trent series after that, I really hope the Trent/Linten series continues. That being said, I almost got the feeling that this book is a spinoff of that series into a Angie Polaski series. I could be wrong but this book is like 90% Angie's story and the rest goes to Will and Sara. Please don't get me wrong, this is a very good book with a very complicated storyline and Angie is such a colorful character with new revelations popping up all over the place in this book. I won't say what they are because I don't want to spoil it for anyone but if you've listened to the previous books in this series you already know that she's a loose cannon. Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing where this goes next.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I Forgot How Much I Missed All These Characters

Would you listen to The Kept Woman again? Why?

Maybe once I forget it. I would love to listen to "Criminal" again... that was my favorite in the series and I no longer remember it.


What other book might you compare The Kept Woman to and why?

Karin Slaughter has her own style of writing. On a side note I do find it funny that all of her people draw blood in their mouth to suppress anger and seem to all have gastric issues with all the bile coming back up everytime they are traumatized.


What does Kathleen Early bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Kathleen is a great narrator. I can recognize her without hearing her name by just listening to how proper she prounounced "w" with a "hwuah." There always seems to be a million chances for her to say the word "white" so we can hear "hwuahiite." All kiddding aside though she is one of ther best female narrators out there.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Karin's books always make me laugh and cry and stay on the edge of my seat. She has a way of making you connect with the characters like no other.
