"The first 16 pages of Karin Slaughter's new novel are a master class in suspense....Fallen, Slaughter's 11th novel in 11 years, shows again that she is in the first rank of today's crime novelists. Her story is expertly written, exhaustively researched, steeped in police lore, deeply rooted in the author's native Georgia and exceedingly violent. Slaughter has a rare ability to balance violence with a compassionate view of her complex and all-too-human … mehrcharacters. She's a supremely tough-minded novelist who often writes with exceptional sensitivity.....Fallen is a complex, gripping and deadly serious novel that reflects anew Slaughter's abundant talent. If you haven't read her, you should." --The Washington Post
"Karin Slaughter has written a novel that is complex, unsettling, and with one of the meatiest suspense plots of the summer." --Tucson Citizen
"Slaughter just keeps getting better!"
--Romantic Times Book Review
"Her talent is the equivalent of an Edgar Allan Poe or a Nathaniel Hawthorne....You can't dismiss the growth of Slaughter's talent. She has always been a good writer but of late she has become an exemplary storyteller, weaving her words with skill and intelligence. Fallen is a prime example of her talent....Sometime in the future, college classes will be devoted to Slaughter's books and her writing skills will be dissected. She will be recognized as one of the great talents of the 21st century and will hold an honored place in the realm of world literature." --Huffington Post
"Slaughter has always known how to pace the suspense in her stellar crime novels, but she really outdoes herself here....In what might be her best effort yet, Slaughter reveals the heart and soul of her characters within a highly choreographed, unrelentingly suspenseful plot."
