Join Mystery Guild for a great deal on BEYOND REACH
Karin Slaughter has been compared by critics and fans to Thomas Harris and Patricia Cornwell. If she keeps writing such original and riveting novels as Beyond Reach, they'll soon be comparing those and other crime writers to her.
Instead of falling prey to crime and addiction like most of her Southern family, Lena Adams became a cop in Heartsdale, Georgia, a town far away from her wounded family. Nothing could prepare Lena for what she encounters when she returns home to find a community besieged by drugs, corrupt cops, and neo-Nazis. She also finds herself a suspect in a brutal murder. When Lena’s boss, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, learns Lena's in trouble, he and his wife, Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton, come to her aid. What they discover is a horrifying world of bigotry and violence. As the bodies pile up, they find themselves the next targets. Explicit violence, language.
