“Powerful and complex…The way Slaughter gradually unspools her fascinating story, all the way up to its shocking conclusion, will have readers captivated. Another fine, dark novel from Slaughter.”—Chicago Sun-Times for Beyond Reach
“[Slaughter's] best yet….Her novels smolder with reality…. She writes with confidence and precision as well as passion”
—Washington Post on Faithless
“Slaughter has the courage to detonate her biggest bombshells early on, keeping even the wariest readers off-balance.”
“Heart-pounding…Slaughter brings the same raw energy and brutal violence that distinguishes her Grant County series (Beyond Reach, etc) to this new series with chilling results, while Trent and Mitchell, a pair of complex and deeply flawed heroes, will leave fans clamoring for the next installment.”
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review for Fractured
“Bone-chilling…Slaughter builds the suspense to a perfect crescendo, connecting every loose plot strand in a devastating and unforgettable climax…A timely and unsettling read.”
