The Silent Wife

From the No.1 bestselling author comes a gripping new crime thriller featuring WILL TRENT and SARA LINTON.

'Simply one of the best thriller writers working today' Gillian Flynn

Atlanta, Georgia. Present day. A young woman is brutally attacked and left for dead. The police search for the culprit but the trail goes cold, until Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Will Trent makes a startling discovery. A prisoner in the state penitentiary tells Will that he recognizes the MO in the unsolved case. The attack looks identical to the crime he was convicted for ten years earlier. The imprisoned man has always maintained his innocence. Now, he's sure he was framed.

As Will digs into both crimes, it becomes clear that the original case holds the answers, and he must solve it first to find the truth.

But ten years have passed-time for memories to fade, witnesses to vanish, evidence to disappear. As far as the cops and prosecutors are concerned, that investigation was successfully closed. Will knows there is only one person who can help him hunt down a ruthless killer who roams free-and possibly clear an innocent man-his girlfriend Sara.

But when the past and present collide, Will quickly realizes that all he values is at stake, and that one wrong move could cost him everything.

"This is my first Karin Slaughter book and I know it won’t be my last! The Silent Wife is told in alternating voices and is done so very, very well. It contains flawed characters that I actually found myself empathizing with as well as a scary representation of the human psyche. Even if you read a lot of crime stories and believe you are hyper-sensitive to the clues, the manipulation of the reader in this instance is so well done that you will find the ending hard to predict. This is one of the best psychological thrillers I have read in a while." Gina, Dymocks Neutral Bay

RATINGS & REVIEW

5/12/2020 5:11:39 AM - Marianne
a brilliant read
The Silent Wife is the tenth book in the Will Trent series by best-selling American author, Karin Slaughter. The aftermath of a prison riot sees GBI Special Agents Faith Mitchell and Will Trent offered information by an inmate in exchange for the reopening of a cold case. Jailed eight years earlier as a paedophile, Daryl Nesbitt is determined to expose the corrupt police whose (illegal?) search sent him to prison: Grant County cops Lena Adams and Jeffrey Tolliver. Grant police always believed Nesbitt guilty of the attacks on three women, although he was never tried and the cases remained open. Now, he cites a number of (apparently accidental) deaths after his imprisonment, that fit the profile of those still-unsolved Grant County attacks. Is Nesbitt simply an opportunist, or is there substance to his accusations? If he’s not guilty, has there been a serial killer out there for eight years? GBI deputy director, Amanda Wagner decides to act cautiously: with Jeffrey Tolliver dead, Faith and Will go to see an uncooperative Lena Adams, to try (and fail) to obtain her notebooks covering those cases; Dr Sara Linton, now a GBI pathologist, checks the body of the most recent victim to which Nesbitt has drawn attention. That body does indeed bear the same signs; the source of Nesbitt’s information turns out to be a surprise; and further investigation leads the GBI to understand this is far from being a cold case. The narrative is from multiple perspectives, including that of Jeffrey Tolliver eight years previous, and a prospective victim; in both past and present timeframes, it takes place over just a few days, but Slaughter manages to fill those days with plenty of tension, action and a gripping climax. And each time the situation gets a little too tense, Slaughter inserts Faith Mitchell with her inane but often blackly funny chatter. In Lena Adams, Slaughter once again, gives us the character we love to hate, and does it so well that this time Will and Faith won’t be the only ones itching to use their fists. The disharmony between Will and Sara that follows a certain proposal persists in the background (and sometimes jumps to the foreground) of the main action. And the spectre of Jeffrey doesn’t help things. Regular readers will know that Slaughter does not shy away from confronting issues, so when she tackles them with explicit examples of murder, rape, assault, stalking, forcible sodomy, mutilation of corpses and necrophilia, no one should be too surprised. In her author’s note, Slaughter explains the liberties taken with the timeline to satisfy the obsessive reader, but this does contain spoilers so is best read last. Any Karin Slaughter book is going to be hotly anticipated, but a Will and Sara book is always well worth the wait, and this one is a brilliant read.
