Publisher's Summary

The compelling stand-alone novel from the Sunday Times best-selling author of Unseen and Criminal.

1970s Atlanta: A time of great change and yet for many the fierce desire to keep things exactly the same is still strong. For women like Maggie Lawson and Kate Murphy every day is a battle. From different sides of the tracks they are united in their determination to be good cops. But they have to fight the prejudice of people like Maggie's uncle Terry who are convinced a woman's place is in the home. And all this in a city where 10 cops are killed a year and most of the city is a no-go area - even for their male colleagues. Then Jimmy's partner is shot dead and Maggie and Kate find themselves caught up in a case that forces them to make choices. Choices that have far reaching consequences - for them, for the police force, and for the community as a whole.

    "Different but as good as ever"
    Where does Cop Town rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I admit I haven't finished the book yet but wanted to get the message out that this book is as fantastic as a slasher slaughter fan could wish for despite being a bit different. I am totally hooked - as usual. So far it's up there with the best


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cop Town?

    The pacing, the aggravating characters some of whom you can't help but love, the GRIPPING storyline


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    The last Slaughter book I listened to was narrated by someone else. Thank goodness. Lore lei is back, she has the perfect tone and characterisation


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I remember the casual open sexism in this book, younger people wanting authentic vintage could do worse than listen to this story, it is painfully, pinpoint accurate to time and really atmospheric.


    Any additional comments?

    As a stand alone or new series, no need to read earlier books first, dive in. Warning high probability of addiction to Slaughter with this (and other) book(s) by this cracking writer .

    "Suspenseful!"

    I have not been a reader for some years so have no real knowledge of authors or their reputations. Karin Slaughter is a really great writer of suspense. I listened every night and had to restrict myself to just one hour per session or I would just have never got any sleep. Well worth the price and I will look out for others by her.

    I am enjoying the listener page as I find other readers recommendations very helpful and refreshingly honest prior to choosing a new book.

    Story
    "Lapped it up"

    It took a wee while to get it straight just who was who with the characters were but once things cleared this story hooks you in especially with the narrator who has a voice like honey.
    It takes place in 1970s America there's a cop killer on the loose and two young female rookie police officers try to unravel the mystery against the odds made harder given all the prejudices of the time.
    This was my first Karin Slaughter it won't be my last - totally acceptable - next one please.

    "Not up to scratch"

    Not up to Karin Slaughter's usual standard. Story was weak but the performance was quite good. It was unnecessarily long. Best part was the showdown with Chips.

    "Good story, annoying narration"

    This is a decent thriller with a good story but the narration is not great. I've listened to books with this narrator before and she did a good job, but for some reason here, every sentence, in some cases every word in a list ends in a strange 'sing song' inflection. I stuck with it, but nearly gave up.

    "Interesting Cop Story"

    Good story. Well executed and kept my attention. Many turns to get the story told and come full circle. Recommended.
