Unravelling the past

Criminal - Karin Slaughter
Paperback, 448 pages, Published July 1st 2012 by Century

Have not read any of Karin Slaughter's Will Trent series before so coming in at book six does require a little bit of catch up but the book easily read be as a stand alone.
Will Trent's past has caught up with him and he really does not know how to react to the events that are unfolding around him.
Slaughter knows the dark side of human nature and creates characters that lift off the page. She creates macabre crimes and knows how to keep you guessing. You jump back and forwards through time as you unravel the crime and understand the characters more. At the start this seem to make the novel a bit disjointed and difficult as a reader to get into. Once you get over those early chapters it is a really engaging read.
