Cop Town

As a brutal killing rocks the city, Kate Murphy wonders if her first day on the police force will also be her last. For life is anything but easy in the male-dominated world of the Atlanta Police Department. Kate isn't the only woman on the force who is finding things tough. Maggie Lawson followed her uncle and brother into the ranks to prove her worth in their cynical eyes. When Maggie and Kate become partners, and are sidelined in the search for the city's cop killer, they decide to pursue their own line of investigation. But are they prepared to risk everything as they venture into the city's darkest heart?

Karin Slaughter (born 1971) is an American crime writer, who debuted with her novel "Blindsighted" in 2001. It became an international success and made the Dagger Award shortlist for "Best Thriller Debut" of 2001. Published in 23 countries.

Publishing history

Slaughter is best known for her Grant County series ("Blindsighted", "Kisscut", "A Faint Cold Fear", "Indelible", "Faithless" and "Skin Privilege"). Set in the fictional town of Heartsdale, Georgia, (in the fictional Grant County) the narrative takes place from the perspective of three main characters: Sara Linton, the town's pediatrician and part-time coroner; her ex-husband, Jeffrey Tolliver, who is chief of police; and his subordinate, detective Lena Adams, Slaughter's most controversial character. The most recent Grant County novel was published in July 2007. The title was "Beyond Reach" in the US and "Skin Privilege" elsewhere.

"Like a Charm" is an anthology, with short stories written by several thriller authors. Each story features a charm bracelet that brings bad luck to its owner. The time and place where the stories take place vary greatly, ranging from 19th century Georgia to wartime Leeds. Karin Slaughter wrote both the first and the last story.

Contributing authors, among others, are:
* John Connolly
* Mark Billingham
* Denise Mina
* Fidelis Morgan

"Triptych" is a novel with three interconnected narrators, set against the urban backdrop of Atlanta, and was published in August 2006. "Fractured" continues the series with the character Will Trent from "Triptych." It was released in 2008.

"Martin Misunderstood" is an audio original novella available in the U.S. from BBC Audiobooks America. It was given away in the Netherlands to over one million individuals as part of the June 2008 Month of the Thriller.
