After That Night (Will Trent, #11) by Karin Slaughter

Sara tries to save the life of a patient (Dani Copper) who has been brutally attacked and left for dead. Unable to save her Dani, Sara decides she is not going to let this rest. Will investigates a case with a few similarities to a horrific event in Sara's life fifteen years prior.

How are the two cases connected and what will be found as they did deeper into this case? With the Help of Faith and Amanda ,secrets are slowly revealed leading to the most disturbing outcome of an unimaginable crime spree.

The story moves at an even pace leading up to a slow burn. With attention to details, engaging dialog, edge-of-your seat chills, intense nail-biting moments. I was engrossed from the start, leading up to the shocking conclusion.

After That Night has been one of Karin Slaughter most compelling stories yet. I highly recommend to those who enjoy procedural crime/thriller/suspense.

*Trigger warnings as mentions of rape/sexual assault and suicide

The Last Widow by Karin Slaughter

The story moves at a steady pace. Very detail oriented pulling me deep into the story. Alternating between Will and Sara kept me on edge, anticipating the next move.

The plot was so realistic, it was (almost) frightening. Truly a thought-provoking , page-turning hard to put down read.

Karin Slaughter knows how to grab your attention and not let go. I highly recommend The Last Widow to those who enjoy thrilling, suspense filled reads.

I like the continuing characters but some of the crimes being investigated are rather gory, in "Undone" especially.
