Beschreibung bei Amazon Karin Slaughter Biography: Her last name really is Slaughter, and even as a small child, she was fascinated by the macabre. This interest set her apart from most of the other little girls in her small hometown of Jonesboro, Georgia, where her father ran a local car dealership. Slaughter was different in other obvious ways, too. She was expelled from her Christian primary school for tearing a Bible apart, for instance; and one of her first boyfriends was an undertaker-in-training.
She was also influenced by the gruesome events occurring in the world around her. Slaughter says that her carefree childhood was interrupted by the changes brought about by the fear that spread through her community. The experience sparked an interest in how communities respond to crime. In fact, one of her popular series of books, known as the Grant County Series, is set in a fictional Georgia town much like the one in which Slaughter grew up.
One of her favorite books—ever— is Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi. Grant County Series: According to Slaughter, Heartsdale, Georgia, the scene of her Grant County series, is a composite of all the southern towns she knew as a girl. The horror grows as more women are murdered. Other books in the series continue to follow crimes investigated by Linton, Tolliver and Adams. Trent is a man with scars, and his long-term romantic relationship with Angie Polaski is flawed.
Triptych, the first book in the series, features a woman-killer who leaves his calling-card by mutilating his victims in a specific way. The other books in the series, Fractured and Snatch, continue to develop the characters of Will Trent and Faith Mitchell as they confront chaos perpetrated on citizens of Atlanta by criminals and serial murderers. Sara Linton has moved from Heartsdale to the big city and encounters Faith Mitchell—and her partner Will Trent—in the hospital.
This series presents the best of two worlds for Slaughter fans. Books in the Georgia series include Fallen, Broken, and Undone. Her writing is realistic and unsparing, and she goes out of her way to make sure that the details are true to life. Instead, she says that any agenda is imposed by the location in which her books are set. In fact, Maynard Jackson was elected the first mayor of Atlanta—a milestone for any Southern city—during this time period. Yellow Bird has acquired the rights to the Will Trent Series, and is planning to produce three films based on the books.

Lets be honest rereads have been an infrequent occurrence in my world. My best guess at the number of trips Ive made to Grant County over the years though, six? Yeah, Im going with six, at least. While I was the furthest thing from blindsided, I remembered about Maybe even appreciated the setting a tad more, considering I now call the peach state home. Without getting ahead of myself too much here, I respect the direction she takes this series, despite the sopping mess I always seem to revert to in the end.
