False Witness by Karin Slaughter.
I have enjoyed the novels of Ms Slaughter right from the beginning when I picked up a copy of “Kisscut” due to being unsure what I wished to read and a rather lurid cover. False witness is, in my opinion, her best book so far.
What impressed me most was how far she has come. Her first books were good, I enjoyed them, but the writing was adequate to good, the plotting left a little to be desired.
Years of experience and innate writing ability has transformed Ms Slaughter’s work to Masterful where plotting is concerned, beautiful
in phrasing and touch. In short, from a good storyteller she has become a master writer. As well as crime fiction this could easily be classed “Literary fiction”.
A classic crime thriller from one of the best writers in the genre.
