He has my heart and he always will That said this Karin Slaughter novel tore me in two I really like Will Trent A lot I love his partnership with Faith and laughed hysterically at their antics in this novel I also like Will with Sara although I personally don’t think she’s good enough for him Sorry NOT Sorry That said I absolutely LOVE Jeffrey Tolliver Yes I am one of those women When he died my heart was RIPPED OUT of my chest It is something that I have not gotten over to this day When I started reading this book and realized that Karin Slaughter was drudging it all back up AGAIN with Will Sara LENA and JEFFREY My stomach churned and turned and I felt ill I finished this novel two days ago and I am still a mess over it all and will be for a long time It is to Karin Slaughter’s credit that she is able to pull all of these emotions out of me “The Silent Wife” is a spellbinding intense mystery thriller that is a must read for Karin Slaughter fans I personally suggest reading all of the Grant County and Will Trent novels in order before reading this so that you can experience the characters and the raw emotions that Karin Slaughter brings to the table Kudos to Ms Slaughter for slaying me yet again Thank you to my book buddy Kaceey for being there for me throughout I started bingeing this series last September and she has been there for me every step of the way She has laughed and supported my love and utter despair over Jeffrey my anger and frustration at Sara my adoration of Will and Faith and my defense of Lena I would not have gotten through this series without you We read this one together and it was the bestThank you to HarperCollins William Morrow Edelweiss and Karin Slaughter for the arcPublished on Goodreads on 7520

    Karin Slaughter's latest addition to her Georgia Bureau of Investigations GBI agent Will Trent and medical examiner Dr Sara Linton series is a dark unsettling and disturbing nightmare of a affair GBI have been called in to to investigate the murder of inmate 38 year old Jesus Vasuez at the penitentiary during a riot when they are offered information on the perpetrators by another prisoner Daryl Nesbitt He claims that he is innocent of the brutally devastating attacks sexual assaults and murders of women in Grant County pointing the finger at the then Chief of Police Jeffery Tolliver Sara's dead husband and his fellow police officer Lena Adams as responsible for a corrupt investigation Nesbitt says he can prove he is innocent that there have been at least eight other women murdered since his imprisonment by the real serial killer furnishing GBI with newspaper articles on their deaths demanding they investigate in exchange for revealing who killed VasuezWill and Sara's relationship develop tensions fears and insecurities as Sara is plunged into her past the trauma of Jeffery's original investigations a bitter period where she had been divorced from the handsome Jeffery after his infidelities before she later married him again as she had never stopped loving him GBI and Sara begin to look at the deaths of the women beginning with the most recent Alexandra McAllister thought to have been an accident Lena loathed and not trusted by the GBI in the slightest is now pregnant informing them she has shredded her notebooks making it difficult to uncover the truth of her and Jeffery's actions that led to Nesbitt being identified as the killer It soon becomes alarmingly clear that the serial killer has continuing raping and killing women through the years becoming adept at disguising the deaths as accidents His MO though has remain the same stalking the women stealing hair accessories from his victims as trophies hitting them on the head with a hammer drugging them rape and sexual assault paralysis leaving their bodies in the surrounding woodsGBI find themselves up against a killer that is smart deliberate methodical a risk taker relishing hiding in plain sight continuing to prey on women relentlessly with never a flicker of remorse Sara's personal relationship with Tolliver comes under the spotlight the past taking up so much of her head space in the present impacting on her relationship with Will and having her examining the different natures of the men she had fallen in love with The highlights in Slaughter's terrifying narrative of extreme violence and rape against women is the sliver of hope in the theme of survival through the worst of horrors and trauma that could befall a woman and the undeniable love portrayed between Sara and Will This is brilliant if tortuously dark and disturbing storytelling that I highly recommend to crime and thriller readers Many thanks to HarperCollins for an ARC

    These books are basically crack to me so you’re not going to get a super balanced or neutral review here I probably also shouldn’t be making drug jokes right after reading Dopesick but I don’t have a better way to describe it Karin Slaughter’s books just do it for me—as soon as I finish one I’m immediately looking around to see if there’s another Luckily we got The Silent Wife less than a year after The Last Widow and honestlyI had to double check but I believe this is the first policecrime thriller I’ve read since the George Floyd protests at least where the protagonists are almost entirely members of law enforcement It’s interesting to revisit a beloved series with this different point of view almost as if I’m seeing some things for the first time While there may have been time for some tweaks based on the international publication days I’m assuming pretty much all of The Silent Wife was written without this added layer of scrutiny Therefore I was really pleasantly surprised with how well the material holds upSlaughter has never been one to hold back especially when depicting some of the realities for women and non white members of the community and police force Spoiler for Triptych view spoilerHell the first villain that we see Will Trent chase down is a rapist cop hide spoiler

    So huge is my love for Jeffrey Tolliver that I almost didn't read this book I just couldn't face dredging up all of those feelings again Then I read a few reviews and well I just had to get in thereIt was so great to reconnect even in this way Will Faith and Sara were justwell you know And Lena fucking Lena Argh Love to lovehate LenaDo not even entertain the idea of reading this book if you haven't read the other Grant County books but if you have then do it today And if you haven't? I'm jealous Do that now

    Finally we got a realgripping gory gritty graphic disturbing dark and unputdownable Will Trent story that we’ve been waiting for Don’t get me wrong the brilliant ultra talented author always gives us one book at a year but last two books were like regular fast pacing thrillers and I missed the real essence dysfunctional dynamics of Will’s world But this book brought that missing essence by meticulously merging past and present that means without coming clean facing their pasts the characters cannot move on because they’re stuck with the ghosts of their old livesuick summary of the book’s plot line Brutal attacks on women by serial killer start to occur which is bearing same MO of a rapist who has been locked for life 8 years ago and who has insisted that he has been innocent Now a dangerous serial killer rapist out there to hunt the innocent women And the prisoner Daryl Nesbitt who has been put behind the bars for the past allegations of brutal rape murders demands to see Will and longtime partner Faith Mitchell and during their meeting he insists he’s been framed by the corrupted cops Of course Nesbitt points at Jeffrey Tolliver Grant County’s Chief Officer for wrongly accusing him of two violent rape attacks the same officer who has been brutally murdered and the deceased husband of Will’s girlfriend medical examiner Sara Linton These accusations open up can of worms and force to face both Will and Sara with the skeletons they hid in their locked closet doors uestioning their intimate relationship The book is divided between two different timescales We go back to 8 years ago to witness Jeffrey’s investigation progress seeing young Sara and we move back to the present to witness Faith Will Sara who’s racing against time to solve the murderers and catching the killer Overall it was gripping thrilling action packed captivating novel and even though from the beginning I have some uestions about Sara and Will’s relationship at this book we see a clear picture about what holding them to move on and what they are scared of And Faith is always one of my favorite characters of this book Her partnership with Will their opposite characteristics their banters and the way of special uirky communication between them are adorable giving us dark humorous parts when we need to take break and relax after reading breathtaking depressing dark chapters of the bookThe only thing disturbed me was detailed and long parts which made me slowed down But instead of that for so long this was one of the best Will Trent books I’ve read so long and I also enjoyed promising ending looking forward to read the next one sooner

    Nineteen years ago Karin Slaughter wrote the first book in her Grant County series and she has been my favorite ever since Karin Slaughter fans know that the books began with the Grant County Series and then the Will Trent Series came along with Sara doing a crossover and the rest is history folks If you have not read these two series I highly recommend them Be warned they are dark full of heinous crime full of love full of suspense full of medical and investigative jargon and simply my favorite page turners of all time She has had some awesome stand alone books as well Okay I am done fangirling and gushingAtlanta Georgia A young woman is brutally attacked and left for dead After investigation the case unfortunately turns cold That is until GBI investigator Will Trent is at a crime scene in a state penitentiary and a prisoner says he recognizes the MO after all he was committed for the same type of crime years ago He always claimed he was innocent he always blamedclaimed Jeffrey Tolliver put the wrong man behind barsAs Will and his team begin to investigate ghosts of the past come back The biggest one being Jeffrey Tolliver Sara's dead husband Sara and Will are a HOT item in case you have not read the books There is a lot of history that is about to be dug up To give some background as I previously mentioned Sara Linton is Will's girlfriend but was once the pediatrician and medical examiner of Grant County where she was married divorced and married again to Jeffrey Tolliver who was the Chief of PoliceThis book was a roller coaster ride for many reasons Told through the past and present readers got to see Jeffrey Tolliver again This was fun and bittersweet all at the same time Boy did I want to punch Slaughter in the face after she ripped my heart out at the end of the Grant County series Like King she is not afraid to kill her darlings It was a nice walk down memory lane Plus we got information on the crimes the investigation and saw things from Jeffrey's POV LOVED ITIn the present day we see Will Faith Amanda Sara and even Lena We also see their investigation the strain the investigation puts on Will and Sara's relationship how could it not? and even learn the truth Amanda still wants things ASAP Faith continues to be a funny strong single mother investigator and partner to Will Will continues to be Will and Sara continues to be Sara Which are all great things We also get to see members of Sara's family and I continue to love Sara's Mothers love and wise words My precious child her mother said Let me carry the burden of your hate Let me do that for you so that you can move on But along the way this was a love letter for fans of both series A bloody dark and suspenseful love letter Bless her heart I loved every single page of this book With Jeffrey Sara had known that there were dozens possibly hundreds of other women who could love him just as intensely as she did With Will Sara was keenly aware that she was the only woman on earth who could love him the way that he deserved to be loved Just as Will Trent deserves to be loved Karin Slaughter deserves to be loved for writing this book I found this book to be well thought out perfectly paced and engrossing As present and past collided in this book things just got better and better not to mention riveting dangerous and darker Just the way I like itMost books work as a stand alone Not this one Not really You NEED to read them all That’s right start with the Grant County Series and then move on to the Will Tent Series Fans of Slaughter and these series will not be disappointed In case I did not make myself perfectly clear – This book was AWESOMEps READ the Author’s note You’re welcomeThank you to HarperCollins William Morrow Edelweiss and Karin Slaughter for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own

    Whewww This was my first full length Karin Slaughter book and it did NOT disappointThis book takes place across two timelines There's present day Atlanta Georgia where we follow the police investigation of a woman who's been brutally attacked The trail is cold but when Will Trent the investigator gets a call to the local prison he realizes that there's far to the case than he ever expected There was a string of murders about 10ish years ago across cities that suddenly and horrifically begin to spell out a pattern Meanwhile in the past we follow Jeffery as he stumbles upon the original set of murders Two victims a short timespan and possible connections and far reaching implications The present Will unravels this secret the sicker it becomes Overall I really enjoyed this book It did feel a little weird to jump in on this series at book 10 but at the same time there was enough background given that it wasn't too much of a leap Though the uick rundowns of all the relationship stuff did slightly make my head spinThe mystery aspect of this book was fantastically done I had absolutely no idea where the book was taking me but I was 110% there for it The way Slaughter set up all of those dominoes for this story fantastic The grand reveal completely and utterly satisfying Loved the tension and the buildI was slightly thrown by the relationship dynamic between Sara and Will it felt like drama for drama's sake but ultimately I was okay with how it played out Past videos involving this book New week new BookTube Video all about the books sent to me in July and AugustI'm LOVING the sound of this one I don't even care that I'm jumping on the series at book 10 I just want to read it now A huge thank you to William Morrow and Karin Slaughter books for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review

    It’s been nineteen years since Karin Slaughter released her first book in the Grant County series Now in the connected Will Trent series she has written the best book since 2012’s “Criminal” Past and present collide when GBI investigator Will Trent and his partner Faith Mitchell go from looking at a deadly prison riot to looking into the brutal attack of a woman When Will’s girlfriend medical examiner Sara Linton gets the chance to perform a second autopsy on a new victim it becomes clear that this latest string of attacks may be connected to the ones that happened earlierin Grant Countywhen Sara’s then ex husband Jeffrey Tolliver was chief of police There may be a serial rapist and murderer on the loose To make matters complicated it is called into uestion whether or not Jeffrey and rookie cop Lena Adams were corrupt in their handling of the Grant County case I cannot explain how much I was anticipating this book and I’m happy to report that it did NOT disappoint Not only do we get to read about the characters we love in the present day Will Sara Sara’s family Faith and Amanda we also get Jeffrey He is very much alive in the past timelinea particular period that we never saw Jeffrey and Sara in Oh and we get Lena in past and present I can’t stand her at all and I hope karma knocks on her door one of these days This book and both series is dark and not for the faint of heart It’s graphic in its descriptions of violence I will never look at a hammer the same way again medical procedures and harm to women It’s also a dialogue driven emotional journey of characters we feel like we really know The underlying tone is romance The love that Sara and Will have for each other is like no other I have read Sara’s path from Jeffrey to Will is heartbreaking and wonderful all at the same time As she so elouently puts it“With Jeffrey Sara had known that there were dozens possibly hundreds of other women who could love him just as intensely as she did With Will Sara was keenly aware that she was the only woman on earth who could love him the way that he deserved to be loved”If you’re new to the world of Karin Slaughter I would highly suggest starting at the very beginning of the Grant County series Blindsighted and working your way through It will make the emotional punch all the satisfying I had tears at the end of this one I’ll leave it to the reader to determine if those were tears of joy or sorrow

    Oh my Gosh A new Will Trent novel 3 Will is one of my favorite male characters He is so broken and so smart at the same time Surprisingly I adored Sara Linton too In general we tend to be harder on the female characters Thinking things like she is making the wrong choice she is putting herself in danger unnecessarily she is acting mean for no reason or maybe it's just me that expects to read about smarter interesting and powerful women characters Luckily I never have to complain about Sara She is perfect for Will She makes him confident and even though it takes him a while to open up she gets him to do it Also her own traumas and the way she has handled herself through all of it makes me respect her Or maybe because she is a doc is why I like her so much Who knows it may be all of itGetting back to The Silent Wife Karin Slaughter wields her magic wand and we get to be back in Grant County with a younger Sara and Grant County's Chief officer Jeffrey Tolliver How you might ask? simple a serial killer At the beginning of the book a prison riot brings the GBI to investigate While gathering information an inmate Daryl Nesbit wants to talk to Will and Faith He says he is innocent of a crime and he has the proof Women have gone missing after he was put in prison and he blames Jeffrey and Lena Adams for letting the serial killer run free By several POV's and by intercalating past and present chapters we get a bigger picture of what truly happened The identity of the serial killer was shocking but maybe not too much It all made senseKarin's writing is always raw and gritty True evil is out there in the world and she knows how to bring it into her fictional world in a masterful way In regards to the characters I already drooled over Will and Sara at the beginning of my review so I will say that Faith is another strong female character Being in her head is always entertaining and I do love her relationship with Will as a partner and as his friend Amanda as their boss is the cherry on top She seems to be one step ahead of everyone every single time I know the majority of readers love Jeffrey I'm in the minority I was never a Jeffrey fan I thought Sara deserved better However he annoyed me very little in this one One thing I want to make clear in case I haven't done it in my prior reviews is that I HATE Lena I hope she gets what she deserves She is a horrible person and doesn't learn from her mistakes Really sad for her husband Cliffhanger No45 FangsMrsLeif's Two Fangs About It | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

    Will Trent and Faith Mitchell of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are called to a Georgia prison following a riot and death of an inmate Whilst there prisoner Daryl Nesbitt asks to see them and accuses Detective Jeffrey Tolliver of fitting him up for brutal two rape attacks which he is serving time for Jeffrey is now dead and was the former husband of medical examiner Dr Sara Linton who is in a relationship with Will The unfolding drama puts a great strain on both of them and their relationship The story is told in two different timelines from Jeffrey’s perspective eight years ago with the original investigation and Will Faith and Sara’s in the present day The two different timescales works extremely well and they dovetail effortlessly This is a tricky thing to get exactly right and shows the skill of the author This is a very twisty tale there are moments when it’s very creepy and scary and the plot is extremely gritty The attacks on women are savage and although its made crystal clear just how depraved the perpetrator is this is not gratuitous but it is hard hitting It’s well written the characters are very good some of them are damaged by their past but this makes them intriguing because they are flawed and complex I like the occasional dark humour which is a welcome release from the storyline I did guess who the perpetrator is but it does not spoil the ending of the book in any way However it took me a long time to get into the book maybe 25% as I feel it’s over detailed and a bit longwinded in places Then something seems to change and the tempo increases and from that point on I couldn’t put the book down With thanks to NetGalley and Harper Collins for the ARC
