First, for crime fans, Karin Slaughter’s latest, Skin Privilege, is out in hardback at 29.50 euros.
Lena Adams has spent her life struggling to escape her past. She has made a new life for herself as a police detective in Heartsdale but nothing could prepare her for the violence which explodes when she is forced to return home.
A vicious murder leaves a young woman incinerated beyond recognition and Lena is the only suspect. When Heartsdale police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver, Lena’s boss, receives word that she has been arrested, he goes to Lena’s aid. But soon after his arrival, a second victim is found. They find themselves entangled in a horrifying underground world of bigotry and rage.
Only Jeffrey and his wife can free Lena from the web of lies, betrayal and brutality that has trapped her. But can they discover the truth before the killer strikes again?
