Karin Slaughter, who is well known for her “Will Trent” and “Grant County” series, has a brand-new stand alone novel, Cop Town, which is out June 24, and she will be making appearances at two of OC Public Libraries’ branches this July as part of her book tour.
On Saturday, July 19th at the Rancho Santa Margarita Library, and Sunday, July 20th at the Laguna Niguel Library (both 2pm), Ms. Slaughter will be appearing to talk about her new book: Cop Town. Cop Town is a tense, fast-moving thriller that covers only a few days in the summer of 1974, but Slaughter twists together themes of racism, sexism, and homophobia into an exciting and thoroughly readable package. The novel believably evokes the seventies, but the motivations and actions of the characters ring true today.
It’s hard enough to be a woman in the man’s world of the Atlanta Police Department; Maggie comes from a cop family and knows the drill. When she gets saddled with the beautiful Kate on her first day, things get dicey as a serial killer stalks police officers. The different worlds of Atlanta collide - men, women, black, white, rich, and poor. With shifting points of view and a range of well-defined characters, Slaughter delivers a stand-alone novel that will appeal to any fan of police procedurals, serial killer thrillers, and psychological thrillers.
