Summary

The gripping standalone thriller from number one internationally best-selling author Karin Slaughter, soon to be a Netflix series.

A terrifying act of violence....

It takes a split second for your life to change forever. And for Andrea Oliver that split second is a mass shooting in her local mall. 

A woman whose life is built on a lie....

But this shocking act is only the start. Because then, as the bodies fall around them, Andy’s mother Laura takes a step forward into the line of fire. 

A fight for survival....

Hours later, Laura is in hospital, her face splashed over the newspapers. But the danger has only just begun. Now Andy must embark on a desperate race against time to uncover the secrets of her mother’s past before any more blood is shed....

Critic reviews

"Slaughter has outdone herself with Pieces of Her – a novel that sets the standard for psychological thriller writing. Rarely in fiction have the past and the present collided with such force and in such a distinctive and compelling voice." (Jeffery Deaver)

"Amongst the world‘s greatest and finest crime writers." (Yrsa Sigurðardóttir)

"Slaughter judiciously keeps the characterisation of her imperilled protagonists to the fore." (Guardian)

Wonderful convoluted story

I download this book as soon as it was released without any reviews. However, it was not a risk as Karin Slaughter never disappoints. This book presented with a beautifully written convoluted plot which keeps you hooked. You wonder how the twin timescale plots will come together and be resolved, but they do! Good narration too.

Not as compelling as usual.....<br />

I'm a huge fan of Karin Slaughter but I struggled to stay connected to this one. I can't quite believe I'm saying this, but I actually got a bit bored. I'm hoping the next one will grab me again.

Different twist!

I did enjoy listening to the plot, different and a little predictable, but well crafted!

hugely disappointing

I usually like Karen slaughter's books but this was awful. the characters were unlikeable and frankly pathetic and the story was tedious. I eventually gave up listening and skim read the book just to finish it as I could not listen to s minute longer. so disappointed as her books are normally very good.

weak for this author

meandering, great start, great finish, slow and weak in the middle, too many loose ends.

Dont Get It

Normally I am a fan of Karin Slaughter's books, but this one defies explanation. I don't understand the plot - its confusing having characters of the same name in both current and historical scenarios. Not sure who is who, half way through the book. Main character in the current scenario is so wet I have no sympathy or compassion for her situation.
Cant be bothered to listen to the rest of the story
