Product Overview

There''s no police training stronger than a cop''s instinct. Faith Mitchell''s mother isn''t answering her phone. Her front door is open. There''s a bloodstain above the knob. Everything Faith learned in the academy goes out the window when she charges into her mother''s house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room, a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn''t see is her mother. When the hostage situation turns deadly, Faith is left with too many questions. She''ll need the help of her partner, Will Trent, and trauma doctor Sara Linton to get some answers. But Faith isn''t just a cop anymore, she''s a witness--and a suspect. To find her mother, Faith will have to cross the thin blue line and bring the truth to light--or bury it forever.

Author Info
Karin Slaughter
Although Karin Slaughter's books consistently include grisly murders or other serious crimes, she dislikes being categorized. "I'm sold as a literary writer in Holland; I'm sold as crime fiction in England; and a thriller [author] here [in the U.S.]," she once told a reporter. "I think of it as just literature. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD--that's crime fiction. That's a murder story. . . . OLIVER TWIST. What's more violent than a bludgeoned prostitute? A lot of novels use crime as a stepping stone to talk about greater issues. So I just think of myself as a writer." Slaughter was born in Covington, a small town in Georgia. She knew from an early age that she wanted to be an author, but after graduating from Georgia State University, she embarked on a series of steadier and more practical jobs; at one point she operated her own sign-manufacturing company. She wrote in her free time, however, and after a few years she had completed a manuscript she felt was good enough to show to an agent. Her debut novel, BLINDSIGHTED, was published in 2001 and featured Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, now popular recurring characters. The book, like many of her subsequent novels, landed on the bestseller list and was also nominated for a Crime Writers Association Dagger Award. In addition to Linton and Tolliver, her other series protagonists include Will Trent, a special agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The aptly named Slaughter has explained that Trent's jurisdiction includes the entire state, "which broadens [my] victim pool to almost ten million people."
Praise
"Slaughter just keeps getting better!" (top pick)
"In what might be her best effort yet, Slaughter reveals the heart and soul of her characters within a highly choreographed, unrelentingly suspenseful plot." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation Karin Slaughter once again ropes readers into an emotionally charged thriller with FALLEN. Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Faith Mitchell knows the rules--keep your private life and your work life separate. But when her mother is kidnapped--in front of her own eyes, the agent simply cannot stand idly by. Who took her mother? And how does the crime connect with Faith's work for the Bureau? As a witness and a prime suspect, Faith needs some help with this one, and she enlists her partner Will Trent and Dr. Sara Linton.
