One of the best agents in the bureau, Will works in the Special Criminal Apprehension team in Atlanta, USA and his cases often involve uncovering secrets and lies in tight-knit communities. If you enjoy plot twists and turns, gruesome crime fiction and edge-of-your-seat tension then this series by the New York Times bestselling author is for you. Here are the Will Trent books in order. When Atlanta police detective Michael Ormewood is called out to a murder scene at the notorious Grady Homes, he finds himself faced with one of the the most brutal killings of his career: Aleesha Monroe is found in the stairwell in a pool of her own blood, her body horribly mutilated. Twenty-four hours later, the violence Michael sees around him every day explodes in his own back yard. When Atlanta housewife Abigail Campano comes home unexpectedly one afternoon, she walks into a nightmare. A broken window, a bloody footprint on the stairs and, most devastating of all, the horrifying sight of her teenage daughter lying dead on the landing, a man standing over her with a bloody knife.
Her last name really is Slaughter, and even as a small child, she was fascinated by the macabre. This interest set her apart from most of the other little girls in her small hometown of Jonesboro, Georgia, where her father ran a local car dealership. Slaughter was different in other obvious ways, too. She was expelled from her Christian primary school for tearing a Bible apart, for instance; and one of her first boyfriends was an undertaker-in-training. She was also influenced by the gruesome events occurring in the world around her. Slaughter says that her carefree childhood was interrupted by the changes brought about by the fear that spread through her community. The experience sparked an interest in how communities respond to crime.
Slaughter is a native of Georgia, which is where she sets her novels. She started out with two series — Grant County and Will Trent and eventually brought the characters together in the Georgia series. Karin has been a published author since when she began her Grant County series. Notes: Beyond Reach is known as Skin Privilege internationally. Undone is known as Genesis in the United Kingdom.
