A long-time resident of Atlanta, Karin Slaughter began her rural Georgia "Grant County" mysteries in 2001 with Blindsighted, which introduced series characters Dr. Sara Linton, the town’s pediatrician and coroner; Jeffrey Tolliver, her wayward ex-husband and chief of police; and Lena Adams, the county’s only female detective. Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Will Trent was introduced in the 2006 novel Triptych, though he has made a couple of appearances in Grant County of the years.

In addition to her series books, Karin is also the author of the darkly comic stand-alone Martin Misunderstood, published in 2008.

A Will Trent Mystery
Delacorte Press, July 2012

Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda’s motivation until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before — when Will’s father was imprisoned for murder — this was his home …

Flash back nearly forty years. In the summer Will Trent was born, Amanda Wagner is going to college, making Sunday dinners for her father, taking her first steps in the boys’ club that is the Atlanta Police Department. One of her first cases is to investigate a brutal crime in one of the city’s worst neighborhoods. Amanda and her partner, Evelyn, are the only ones who seem to care if an arrest is ever made.

Now the case that launched Amanda’s career has suddenly come back to life, intertwined with the long-held mystery of Will’s birth and parentage. And these two dauntless investigators will each need to face down demons from the past if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed.
