False Witness | Karin Slaughter
He saw what you did.He knows who you are...From the New York Times bestselling author of Pieces of Her and The Silent Wife, an electrifying standalone thriller.AN ORDINARY LIFE...Leigh Collier has worked hard to build what looks like a normal life. She's an up-and-coming defense attorney at a prestigious law firm in Atlanta, would do anything for her sixteen-year-old daughter Maddy, and is managing to successfully co-parent through a pandemic after an amicable separation from her husband Walter. HIDES A DEVASTATING PAST...But Leigh's ordinary life masks a childhood no one should have to endure ... a childhood tarnished by secrets, broken by betrayal, and ultimately destroyed by a brutal act of violence. BUT NOW THE PAST IS CATCHING UP...On a Sunday night at her daughter's school play, she gets a call from one of the partners who wants Leigh to come on board to defend a wealthy man accused of multiple counts of rape. Though wary of the case, it becomes apparent she doesn't have much choice if she wants to keep her job. They go to trial in one week. When she meets the accused face-to-face, she realizes that it's no coincidence that he's specifically asked for her to represent him. She knows him. And he knows her. More to the point, he may know what happened over twenty years ago, and why Leigh has spent two decades avoiding her past. AND TIME IS RUNNING OUT.Suddenly she has a lot more to lose than this case. The only person who can help is her younger, estranged sister Callie, the last person Leigh would ever want to drag into this after all they've been through. But with the life-shattering truth in danger of being revealed, she has no choice...

I feel like I did do this with Karin Slaughter but now I wouldn‘t have enough left 😂
Patricia Cornwell or Seanan Maguire would make for enough (and entertaining enough) material

SolaRaynor Agatha Christie. I was going to say Margaret Atwood, but I think the number of books by Agatha Christie would fit the bill for six months! 2d
Reagan Greg Iles! I love the Penn Cage books but they are so big and he has a big back catalogue too. 2d
kplovesbooks Dean Koontz, because there is definitely enough books of his I haven't read to last me 6 months!! 😂😂 2d

#UnpopularOpinion This was just about a pick for me, mainly because of some of the subject material, but also I felt it was much longer than it needed to be. It was as always an enjoyable read but did I not need to have the taking of drugs thrown at me as much as it was. Bit of a shock for me as I usually love her books.

3rd book finished for #20in4 and 10th book for #ReadWithMe

DieAReader Great job on both the finish & the review🥳🥳 1mo
Lizpixie I felt exactly the same way! And I‘m a massive fan of her books usually. Glad it wasn‘t just me👍 1mo

Leigh Coulton has done all she could to have a normal life. Nobody who knows her would know about the devastating childhood she and her sister, Callie, endured. All that threatens to come to light when she takes on a case to defend someone from her past. He knows the secrets she‘s been hiding for the last 20 years.

Trigger warnings for sexual abuse, drug abuse, rape

Leigh Collier, a defense attorney at a prestigious law firm in Atlanta, had a childhood tarnished by secrets, broken by betrayal, and ultimately destroyed by a brutal act of violence. Leigh and her husband, Walter, are separated and her daughter, Maddy, lives with her ex-husband.

EadieB On a Sunday night at her daughter's school play, she gets a call from one of the firm's partners who wants Leigh to come on board to defend Andrew Tenant, a wealthy man accused of multiple counts of rape. When she meets the accused face-to-face, she realizes that it's no coincidence that he's specifically asked for her to represent him. He may know what happened over twenty years ago, and why Leigh has spent two decades avoiding her past. 3mo
EadieB She has a lot more to lose than this case. The only person who can help is her younger, estranged sister Callie. But, she is the last person Leigh would ever want to drag into this after all they've been through. But she has no choice. The plot slowly unravels the secrets Andrew is keeping. The book is long and wordy and parts could have been cut out as repeated information is a problem. 3mo
EadieB The book is set in the Covid world with masks and social distancing. If you enjoy books about blackmail and revenge then you will enjoy this book. 3mo

I must say, Karin Slaughter pulled no punches with this one - whew, that was intense! A tale of two sisters and the secrets they keep, plus the long term effects of teenage trauma. While certainly not for those sensitive to trigger warnings, this might be my favorite Slaughter "standalone" so far! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

PS: the resort I'm staying in has a lounge called The Library, so basically the perfect spot for a pre-dinner glass of wine and a book ?

This picture doesn't begin to do today's reading spot justice ? - I've escaped to the Bahamas for a few days of R&R and it's lovely. Now, you might say "Ashley, this is not your typical beach read", but for some reason all I seem to be in the mood for lately is murder (I'll overanalyze that later) so it felt like the perfect time to start the latest from one of my favorites!

eanderson @TrishB yep! I love her books but man oh man does she know how to make you ! outloud. @Laughterhp I could understand that. When she has even darker books like this one I have to pad it with several liter books. @DivineDiana maybe start with one of her not so heavy and dark books? I love her and she‘s awesome but yeah.... lol! 4mo

Ms Slaughter is my favorite thriller author. A new book always feels like a celebration. This is a standalone featuring two sisters with a shared history of trauma. Their relationship is strained by the terrible secrets they share, but they love one another fiercely. Their complicated relationship spoke to me and I saw myself and my sister in the way they interacted. I felt emotional and tired when I was done because I felt like I was right there.

I‘ve been hearing a lot of buzz about Karin Slaughter‘s latest and I am happy to report that it did not disappoint. As always, the violence here is graphic. And, TW for physical violence, rape, child abuse, and drug abuse. The story is deliciously twisty and I was extremely satisfied by the ending. #ARC #audiobook #Netgalley

From the very first twist in Chapter one I was enthralled with this one. Even the unthinkable disturbing topics didn't deter me from wanting to know what would happen next.

Karin definitely is at the top of her game!

What a twisted novel that kept me at the edge of my seat, wanting to know what would happen next. The characters are gripping and interesting. Slaughter starts the novel off with a bang and she never lets go with all of the timely revelations. The narration by Early is phenomenal. She brings a lot of emotion into her reading, making it easy to get lost in the story and really feel it; the suspense, the characters‘s emotions, the revelations.

About halfway through this one on audiobook from Netgalley. The beginning was crazy, it follows the sister of the beginning character, then brings her in a little bit later, as well as the son she used to babysit. Things are picking up again and getting intense. Will update on more later.

It was a bit of a slow start and took me a little while to get into it but by the end I was hooked. The story is interesting and does get you thinking. Leigh is not the most likeable but by the end you want her to succeed. In fact most of the characters are not. The ending was well done and perfect for the story. I liked the very last couple of lines.The writing is well done and descriptive, you really get a sense of each location #readersfirst 4*

This is one of those books that the author does so well - where you read with a feeling of dread in the pit of your stomach but you can't stop reading anyway. As usual it is graphic in dealing with its themes of violence, sexual violence, paedophilia, and drug-taking, so be forewarned. 4 🌟

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, HarperCollins UK, for the opportunity to read an ARC.

Love Karin Slaughter, she writes such a taut, exciting thriller and this was no exception.
Leigh Collier is settled in her life and her career as a defence attorney.
Then one day she is asked to represent a high profile case which could do wonders for her professionally.
Clueless as to why she has been asked to take it, the pieces soon slot into place when she meets her client.
She knows Andrew Tennant from her distant past...

Leigh Collier is happy in her life, it is ticking along OK and she has tried to bury her dreadful childhood in the past where it belongs.
But suddenly she is presented with the case of a lifetime, one that could make or break her law career.
But she knows the person she has to defend, essentially he IS a huge part of her past.
Now skeletons locked in a cupboard threaten to come to light and this case also involves her drug addict sister...
