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.
Continuing with the Will Trent series , Broken is the only one I am reading. It is not due to be rerecorded by Kathleen Early until next year. I couldn’t possibly wait. I am hooked on this character and this world. In her forward remarks on some of the new audios, redone with Kathleen Early as a narrator, Karin Slaughter is clear about Will Trent being the purpose of this series. His past, present and future are unfolding in a magical drizzle, case by case.
It took me too long to read since I was busy then traveling. All books in this series are long, more than 500 pages. I wouldn’t give up a single, wonderful page! The case intertwined with the personal lives is exceptional. Will Trent is used to being unwelcome, unwanted and unloved. Amanda is always putting him down. Angie is always leaving him. He doesn’t understand why Sara even talks to him. Sara is a beacon of kindness in a dark world.
This case takes Will to Grant County where Sara grew up and her family lives. She comes home for the Thanksgiving holiday, the first time here since her husband died. Sara and Will get drawn into a mess which makes no one happy and leaves too many dead.
