Anyway, I love Will Trent.
I despise Angie, but have pity for her, and then loathe her again. She is so messed up. This one up next for me. Cannot wait. Almost feel the need to reread the whole series again.
The Kept Woman (Will Trent, #8)
Perhaps next year. Nice review, Jill! She can creates some of the most interesting characters. Cool that your sister says she gets everything right. You are commenting using your WordPress.

The Kept Woman is the 8th book in the Trent series. Will and his partner Faith both work for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are called out to a murder at a construction site. The body is discovered to be that of a retired cop. Forensics indicates that there's another possible victim, but where's the body? Adding to the pressure - the construction site belongs to a high profile athlete who has run afoul of the GBI in the past.
The project has the blessing of politicos and the pressure to solve the case is high. Why do I love Karin Slaughter's book so much? Sara Linton has been a constant from the first book. She's strong, but vulnerable, smart, capable and likeable.
The kept woman by Karin Slaughter
Will Trent. Ahh, well who doesn't love a walking wounded lead. Who just happens to be pretty hot As the books have progressed, Slaughter has slowly released details about the shadowy pasts of some of the characters - both the ones we love and the ones we love to hate. She doesn't skimp on character building - the 'negative' players' lives are just as fleshed out.
This latest book gives us lots of background that we've been waiting for.

I was happily devouring The Kept Woman, pretty sure I knew the direction the story was going. And then about halfway through, Slaughter sucker punched me.
The Kept Woman (Audiobook) by Karin Slaughter | asalgranan.tk
Totally did not see it coming. And within that second half are revelations Slaughter fans have been waiting for. Secrets and more secrets.
Running parallel to the personal side of things is a helluva great central plot. Gritty, dark and dirty. Non stop action. Great dialogue and settings.
Seriously, Slaughter can do no wrong in my eyes. And the ending. The case is neatly wrapped up by the final pages, but the doozy of a last line leaves the door open for the next chapter in this fantastic series. This reader can't wait to see what happens next. Five stars for me. If you're not familiar with this series, I strongly suggest starting with the backlist. You won't fully appreciate The Kept Woman without context. See all 4 customer reviews. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. If you have followed the Will Trent series from the beginning, especially if you have followed the series since Sarah and her first husband you will enjoy this newest addition.
If you are new to the series you will struggle with not only the storyline, but Will Trent in particular - you may not even like Will in this book This book focuses a lot on the back story of Will and Angie Will's wife , issues that have come up between Angie and Sarah Will's girlfriend , and Angie's past with the department. The past is all tied together with the current case that the department is currently working on, with Angie right smack in the middle of. It is really hard to explain without giving spoilers. Slaughter does what she normally does and gives great character development and a fantastic story that builds on her previous books.
I honestly don't feel this is a stand alone book because there is so much rich history about characters that we have come to love or hate and to not have that going into this book, well I could see were you would just dislike all the characters. I do wish for a more permanent ending with Angie. I am really sick of her having her claws in Will.

I believe Slaughter wants to try to get us to like her in some small way like she did Lena in previous books, but I was never a fan of Lena's either. Verified Purchase. I didn't think the paltry story-line worthy of all the gratuitous sex, vulgar language, and violence. I ordered this book over a year ago and let it sit on my Kindle because Karin Slaughter's last book left me irritated and unhappy. Slaughter is a first-rate writer and I've been buying her books ever since she started publishing.
There are some dark characters and some annoying characters, but that's life, and I've relished the sometimes twisted path of Sara Linton's life. I enjoyed reading about all the peripheral characters.
