NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“This chilling mystery is just begging to be read in one sitting.”—Cosmopolitan

Broken features the return of New York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter’s most compelling characters and introduces memorable new ones in a tale of corruption, murder, and confrontation that will leave more than one life destroyed . . .
 
When Special Agent Will Trent arrives in Grant County, he finds a police department determined to protect its own and far too many unanswered questions about a prisoner’s death. He doesn’t understand why Officer Lena Adams is hiding secrets from him. He doesn’t understand her role in the death of Grant County’s popular police chief. He doesn’t understand why that man’s widow, Dr. Sara Linton, needs him now more than ever to help her crack this case.

While the police force investigates the murder of a young woman pulled from a frigid lake, Trent investigates the police force, putting pressure on Adams just when she’s already about to crack. Caught between two complicated and determined women, trying to understand Linton’s passionate distrust of Adams, the facts surrounding Chief Tolliver’s death, and the complexities of this insular town, Trent will unleash a case filled with explosive secrets—and encounter a thin blue line that could be murderous if crossed.

Spellbinding and keenly paced, Broken is Karin Slaughter at her best. Here is an unforgettable story of raw emotions, dangerous assumptions, the deadly and layered game of betrayal, and a man’s determination to expose the most painful of human truths—no matter how deeply they’re hidden . . . or how devastating.

  • (5/5)
    Awesome novel.
  • (4/5)
    I loved reading To Kill a Mockingbird back in high school, and I could sense that inspiration in the book from the very first chapter. This was before I even noticed that on the back cover, it is said that the book was inspired by that classic. Although Broken does not deal with some of the same issues of race and prejudice, it does touch on other important issues. About poverty, about love, about irrational actions, about cruelty. I loved this book to say the least. It gives such an insightful and scary portrayal of what can go on in the world that you makes you really question where you live and the people you live around. This does not mean that I'm going to be paranoid about my neighbour across the street. But it really does make you question people you don't know. The world today just isn't as safe as it once was.

    As the author himself admits, this novel is a deliberate homage to To Kill a Mockingbird (set in contemporary England), but there's more to it than that. The title refers not just to the character known as "Broken Buckley," whose dalliance with a trashy neighborhood girl sets in motion a series of brutal events, but to all the characters who occupy this bleak landscape, all of whom have been broken in one way or another by the unfortunate circumstances of their lives. Some are morally broken, some have had their spirits broken, and the main character, 11-year-old Skunk, who narrates parts of the story from deep within a coma, has been physically and mentally broken by the unspeakable horror she witnessed and endured. The mystery of exactly what happened to Skunk makes this a gripping and suspenseful, if disturbing, read. The things that can help broken people carry on and heal themselves are also revealed, offering a glimmer of hope in a imperfect world.

    An interesting look at how one act of violence can lead to others and how violence can affect more than just the original people involved.A thought it sounded like an interesting concept, and although some parts were really interesting, the book fell short for me.The writing skipped around a bit, which made the book a bit confusing for me. The end was not very clear so that even now as I write the review, I am not sure what happened to Skunk.
