What I’m Reading:
Do I really need to introduce Karin Slaughter and her characters to anyone? Any self-acclaimed crime lover knows about this series right? This is the 8th book already and it’s like always a joy to read.
The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter
A body is discovered in an empty Atlanta warehouse. It’s the body of an ex-cop, and from the moment Special Agent Will Trent walks in he knows this could be the most devastating case of his career. Bloody footprints leading away from the scene reveal that another victim – a woman – has left the scene and vanished into thin air. And, worst of all, the warehouse belongs to the city’s biggest, most politically-connected, most high-profile athlete – a local hero protected by the world’s most expensive lawyers. A local hero Will has spent the last six months investigating on a brutal rape charge.
But for Will – and also for Dr 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. The consequences will wreak havoc on his life and the lives of those he loves, those he works with, and those he pursues.
But Sara’s scene-of-the-crime diagnosis is that they only have a few hours to find the missing woman before she bleeds out . . .
What I (recently) finished:
I read this book in 2013 and gave this one 5 stars, and I’m not alone because when I look at Amazon’s site, there are 82 reviews and an overall score of 4.6 on 5 star rating. On Goodreads it has 4.07. If you are like me, you know that everything above 4 must be really good.

What I’ll probably read soon:
I’m definitely in a psychological thriller-phase it seems. There are so many books in this genre lately, but also another psychological thriller that sounds very intriguing.
Black Widow by Chris Brookmyre
