After the abysmal last book which took us away from Grant County- Triptych? More like craptych- Karin Slaughter sees sense and returns back to the series she does best thankfully not falling into the Patricia Cornwell trap and managing to breathe new life into characters we love instead of making us forget why we liked them to start with. (Kay Scarpetta = Kay Who?) Starting with a medical malpractice suit being brought against paediatrician Sara Linton (now Tolliver scince she re-married her husband) over her diagnosis of a young child's lukemia, the opening chapters kind of serve the purpose of recapping past events for those who are new to the series or for ...

Skin Privilege by Karin Slaughter. ~ About the Author ~ Karin Slaughter is fast becoming one of the best writers in her genre. She lives in the United States, and is a native of Georgia, so it's no surprise that many of her works are based in this area. Her writing is also something that doesn't shy away from violence in all its forms, and she herself has said its because she wants to write about social aspects that are important to her, as well as trying to keep it real. Skin Privilege is the 6th novel in a series featuring three main characters - Lena Adams, Jeffrey Tolliver and Sara Linton. In the US, this book has a ... Read the complete review

I've read a few of Karin Slaughter's Sara Linton series books but admit I have missed a couple. Skin Privilege is the last one she has currently written in the series. Karin Slaughter lives in Atlanta and is a best selling author. Sara Linton is a doctor and part time coroner in Heartsdale, Jeffrey Tolliver is the police chief and Lena Adams one of his detectives. Lena has a troubled past and gets a call to say her uncle needs her in her hometown of Reece. She responds to the call by reluctantly heading back to the town she hates and an uncle she has a rocky relationship with and manages to become the only suspect in an horrific murder where a woman is ...

Karin Slaughter has written four previous books in a series which all feature the same characters and are based around the same area - Grant County. This is the fifth and last book written in this series and in my opinion is the best of them all. Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver gets a call to tell him his Detective, Lena Adams, has been arrested. Feeling he has to find out what has happened he goes along to Reece - one hundred miles away - with his wife Sarah Linton, to try and help Lena out of this latest situation. Things are more troubled then he had feared however, when they realise a woman has been burned to death in the back of a car, and this ... Read the complete review

You can usually count on Karin Slaughter for an outrageously gory stomach churningly graphic go to sleep with the light on read. This time round shes moved away from that and written about white supremacists in small town southern America. Every possible stereotypical image possible has been used from references to the Klu Klux Klan to Hitler and then some. The book starts at the end of the story which in itself is rather odd. After that the events leading up to this particular day are explained in tediously yawn worthy detail. The book features three of Karin Slaughters most dependable characters. Dr Sara Tolliver, paediatrician and part time coroner, her ... Read the complete review
