F the crimes the nderbelly of the part of the city they were investigating and the rotten politics of their own department Now the man they captured for the crimes HAS BEEN RELEASED FROM PRISON AND been released from prison and women are disappearing again This was a tough story on so many levels most especially the 19741975 issues that we find appalling today However I really liked how it all Turning The Professor Into A Crossdressing, Sissified and Feminized Pet - A Tale of Forced Feminization! unfolded and I wouldn t have appreciated it as much without that background And I nownderstand Amanda s relationship with Will its origins and reasons behind the current dynamics Sara also plays an important role and I loved how their relationship evolved The narration was solid never loved how their relationship evolved The narration was solid never the story which would have been easy to do Another outstanding story in the series 35 stars I eagerly anticipate every single book by Karin Slaughter and she s never let me down when it comes to Will Trent and Sara Linton and after last year s fantastic Fallen I was really excited to read her new book Criminal is however my least favorite book by this author yet and the first book in the Georgia series that I ve rated less than 4 stars After thoroughly enjoying each of the previous 12 novels in this series it s something of a shock to find myself with such mixednegative feelings about this oneThe two things that normally make Karin Slaughter books so damned good are crackling suspenseful mysteries and strong characters that you passionately care about In Criminal those elements are woefully obscured by the book s structure too many POVs many of which are too long for secondary characters too much focus on Amanda Wagner s past which sounded like such a great idea except that she s much less compelling and sympathetic as a young rookie and a serious lack of time spent on the central characters we ve come to know The starts and stops of the many many characters POVs make for a jumbled narrative and a frustrating reading experience and they detract from both the cleanness of the plotting and any emotional response we might ve had to the characters I m frankly very surprised that a Slaughter book would be this messyEventually the central mystery is an interesting one if a bit on the predictable side The little we see of the WillSaraAngie dynamic continues to be fascinating The flashback sections that took place in the 70s did provide a few good things #It Was Kind Of Neat #was kind of neat see Evelyn Mitchell s early career since we all know how it later turns out a bit about Will s early beginnings and through Amanda it was interesting to read about how female police officers were treated back then But the issues of discrimination as well as so many others were done with a much less expert hand than I m Fortinbras at the Fishhouses used to seeing in Slaughter s books Even the level and detail of the violence which the author s been criticized for and I ve never had a problem with before seemednnecessarily extra brutal and verging on salacious here For the first time in reading this author s work I felt serious twinges of distaste as I read about view spoilerwomen being sewn to mattresses women with their mouths and eyelids sewn shut or open etc etc hide spoiler I am not sure what else I can say about Will Trent I love who he is I should have been prepared for what was revealed in Criminal but I wasn t I shed tears for Will felt anger towards Amanda and I really wanted to scratch out Angie s eyes Grrrr she makes me so angryThere is so much that is revealed and a lot to process I really had to pay attention The story is told between the past which is in the mid 70 s and the present The past reveals things about Amanda and Evelyn and other s that explains Will s younger life Some of the connections were a little surprising and some I had started to piece together Parts were rather gruesome There were some religious references and Shakespeare too Have you ever heard of OpheliaI will be honest I wasn t a big fan of the back in forth in time but there really was no other way to do it The reader needed all this information and Karin Slaughter gave it to A Way Youll Never Be us Every little bit I was going a little cross eyed and it did slow me down a bit but it was so worth it in the end And sweet Sara she really is Will. Ationntil the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons Decades before when his father was imprisoned for murder this was Will’s home It appears that the case that launched Amanda’s career forty years ago has suddenly come back to life and it inv. ,

Slaughter needs to rethink the series going forward I had many problems getting through this book 1 The actual criminal plot takes forever to get moving Too much of the first half is devoted to the ongoing personal sagas that are pretty much identical for each character as in earlier novels eg Will s inability TO ARTICULATE OR SHARE PROBLEMS WITH SARAH WILL S articulate or share problems with Sarah Will s Will s absurd attachment to his witch of an ex wife It s like a broken record A good police thriller should at least devote half of the novel focusing on the investigation and story This book is only about 20% focused on the crime The rest of the book is devoted to the soap opera among the characters and Ms Slaughter impressing s with her knowledge of Atlanta roads buildings and news events2 The author knows Atlanta inside and out So do I I live My favorite book in the series thus far FANTASTIC The intricacies of this story was off the charts VERY EMOTIONAL Heart wrenching On to the next one My favorite book in the Will Trent series so far Criminal is a masterpiece Finally the reader gets to find out how Will was brought into #The World Who His Parents #world who his parents and how Amanda is linked to his life from the beginning There are so many stunning revelations I can t ev I have read a lot of reviews and a lot of people said that this was their favorite book in the series I will have to disagree on that To me it was very slow I do love Will Trent and he is my favorite character and the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I really learned a lot about Will Trent and loved this part of the storyThe story keeps going from the year 1975 to the present It changes back and forth and if you didn t keep an eye on it it could get a little confusing We learned a lot also about a case that happened in 1975 with Amanda and Evelyn Mitchell We got to learn about Amanda also Back in that day woman didn t really have a place on the police force I did like the book close to the end the last 100 pages It did shock me when I found out who the victim and killer were Only Karin Slaughter can come p with an awesome ending like this Sometimes I don t know how she comes Present Pasts up with her ideas I sure do love reading her books and have become addicted reading them Criminal by Karin Slaughter is a 2012 publication I was making great progress with this series but got sidetracked somewhere along the way but hopefully I can get back on track now Wowza This is an amazing installment in this series and might be one of the best so far Will and Amanda s backstories are examined as we trip back in time to the mid seventies when Will s father is making a name for himself and not in a good way This story explains how and why Amanda knows Will so well and explains what exactly went down with Will s parents I will never think of Amanda in the same way again after reading this installment Karin Slaughter did an amazing job of building suspense and givings a much better and deeper nderstanding of the conflicted and flawed characters we have come to care about The attention to details especially in describing the climate and atmosphere of the 1970 s was impressive The Will and Angie saga is also on the menu and Sara is caught in the middle as Will struggles With His Past And his past and to move forward with Sara These characterizations never cease to amaze me The revelations and shock waves come slowly at first but the last arter of the book had me spellbound The final chapter holds a jaw dropping twist that left me in complete shock I can t wait to see how everyone deals with the fallout from here on out This is an awesome series 45 stars When a college student goes missing and Amanda Wagner refuses to let Will Trent participate ensuing events resurrect the case that launched her career and expose the roots of his parentage The story transitions between the present and 19741975 Whatever I previously thought about Amanda Wagner and Evelyn Mitchell was The Possible Police upended here Their early obstacles faced as the first women in a police department run rampant with sexism and racism were daunting The fact that they not only persevered but succeeded is than admirable That first case was awful because of the nature Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Newly in love he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him Then a local college student goes missing and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor deputy director Amanda Wagner Will cannot fathom Amanda’s motiv. S angel Things are far from easy for these two For every wonderful moment they share they both have to continue to fight thencertainty Will needed to let Sara all the way in That is it for now I ve already started Unseen which is book 7 I might take my sweet time with this one The next one isn t out A Letter To Pakistan until the summer of 2016Such a fantastic series and I highly recommend it to all my friends 4 StarsThe Past Never Stays in the PastWill Trent s past has been kept tightlynder wraps Lock and Key actually He remembers it though he hardly ever talks about it It turns out he he hardly ever talks about it It turns out he his reasons Will s father has been in prison for his entire life Till now Unfortunately for Will his boss Amanda Wagner kept that little fact from him He discovers it for himself when he turns on the news and discovers that a young college girl has gone missing and when he is kept from investigating the case for a very good reasonForty years earlier Amanda Wagner and Evelyn Mitchell were cops in Atlanta s Police Department Both investigated a truly brutal crime involving the disappearance and death of young women Though they are hindered at every turn they persevere What they find is horrifying and Detectives Wagner and Mitchell barely make it out aliveThe way Karin Slaughter intertwines these storylines is nothing short of brilliant I was mesmerized waiting with bated breath at how the storyline that took place in 1975 impacted Will Trent and Amanda Wagner s relationship I must say that I am liking the development of Will Trent s character How he is being drawn out of his shell and letting others in like Faith Mitchell and even Sara Linton though my feelings haven t really changed there I do think both deserve happiness though for me there will only truly ever be one man for Sara sorry Will Trent fans I like Will a lot I think he stands on his own really sorry Will Trent fans I like Will a lot I think he stands on his own really I just wish that KS had created someone new for him but alas life goes on I look forward to seeing where all of the characters go from here on outPublished on Goodreads on 21720 Sometimes it s criminal what a woman has to do 45 starsCriminal is the 6th book in the Will Trent series It is also my favorite book in the series so far Chapters alternate between the past in the 1970s to #the present The past covers Amanda and Evelyn s time as #present The past covers Amanda and Evelyn s time as police officers In addition to fighting criminals they have to battle constant sexism as they are seen as less than by their fellow officers on the force The 1970s Atlanta Police Force is divided by race sex and gender The politics of the time force Amanda and Evelyn to comply Before Our Eyes until they reach their breaking point Their mindset had me fuming and some of the words and thoughts that came out of their mouths had my mouth hanging open in shock but Inderstand that their thoughts and beliefs were a reflection of the timesAmanda and Evelyn are put on a case investigating the rape of a prostitute Their exploration leads them to the most dangerous man they have ever encountered a serial killer who rapes abuses and kills women all in the name of God The killer has an inherent link to Will TrentIn the present 2 weeks after the events of Fallen Will is shaken when he learns that his father has been released from prison When a woman is kidnapped who happens to bear an Death on Milestone Buttress uncanny resemblance to Will s mother he is ready to confront his father one final time potentially putting his new relationship with Sara and his career in the GBI at risk In becomingnhinged Will is intensely vulnerable and a new side to his character is revealedThere is a high level of suspense and tension in both the past and present narratives The killer is A Dark and Stormy Knight (Victorian Rebels, uite brutal with his victims and the details of what he did to them areite sickening There were so many things that I loved about this book but what I loved the most was seeing how Amanda and Evelyn didn t back down They evolved despite their fear and there are flashes of who they will become They develop a network of women who were not powerful in the 1970s but who become extremely powerful and influential in the present showing just how far they have comeThe final scene gave me the chills and made me appreciate Angie just a tiny bi.
