The Interesting Karin Slaughter

KARIN SLAUGHTER produces books that sleekly encapsulate the bizarre world of Atlanta in the last several decades.  She is strong-minded and the female characters in her stories portray the thinking of modern Atlanta and Georgia women in a very clever way.  Her book titled 'Criminal' is an odd foray into the female police world.  It has a vigorous verbal approach that combines the zesty comic and the somewhat tough tones of contemporary women's thought patterns.  In many ways lyrical and strong Karin Slaughter dives into the deep water of the human experience.  Oddly, she brings to mind the sharp verbal thrusts like those orchestrated by the ultra-sophisticated Dorothy Parker and the bravado one...the one and only Patricia Highsmith.  Read Karin Slaughter and gain plenty of knowledge of our unique Atlanta and Georgia culture.
