Karin Slaughter

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.

Slaughter was born in a small southern Georgia community, and now resides in Atlanta. She is widely credited with first coining the term "investigoogling" in 2006.

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.
