  • "Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today, and Cop Town shows the author at the top of her game - relentless pacing, complex characters, and gritty realism, all set against the backdrop of a city on the edge. Slaughter's eye for detail and truth is unmatched . . . I'd follow her anywhere." Gillian Flynn, author of GONE GIRL

    "Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today, and Cop Town shows the author at the top of her game - relentless pacing, complex characters, and gritty realism, all set against the backdrop of a city on the edge. Slaughter's eye for detail and truth is unmatched ... I'd follow her anywhere." -- Gillian Flynn, author of GONE GIRL "Much more than a thriller ... Karin Slaughter's unforgettable female characters, and stunning evocation of time and place, make Cop Town one of the most powerful and moving reads of recent memory ... A masterpiece." -- Kathryn Stockett, author of THE HELP "Stunning ... In Karin Slaughter's first stand-alone novel, she breaks new ground with this riveting story of two young police officers trying to stop a serial killer targeting cops. Her characters, plot and pacing are unrivaled among thriller writers and if you haven't yet read her, this is the moment." -- Michael Connelly "Vivid, gritty and taut, this terrific whodunit keeps you guessing." Sunday Mirror "Karin Slaughter has long been comfortably ahead of the pack in the field of powerful and disturbing crime fiction but Cop Town shows a broadening of reach: it is a more ambitious novel than any she has previously written. Her achievement here is such that many fans will be happy to see her continuing to devote her attention to similar standalone novels." Financial Times

  • PS. In den USA erschien „Cop Town“ vor den Unruhen von Ferguson (CM-Essay ) und bevor der Rassismus der amerikanischen Polizei breiter thematisiert wurde. Slaughters Roman leistet hier eine Spurensicherung, als Mainstream-Autorin gibt sie in diesen heutigen Tagen dem amerikanischen Polizeiroman ein politisches und historisches Bewusstsein. Keine kleine Tat.

When Maggie and Kate become partners, and are sidelined in the search for the city's cop killer, their fury, pain, and pride finally reach boiling point.

    "Cop Town" is definitely not for the fainthearted! It's raw, brutal and angry, very angry. But it's also a page-turner and I literally couldn't put it down. If you like fast-paced, thrilling books, pick up "Cop Town" and you won’t be disappointed.

COP TOWN is a first for Slaughter in the sense that it is a historical thriller, by the generally accepted definition of that term, and is also her first stand-alone work. The title refers to Atlanta in the mid-1970s, as referenced early on in the story by a character in the book. Atlanta is roiling with racial tension, still coming to extremely rough terms with the civil unrest of the previous decade, and this is reflected especially in its police department, which is under attack from within and without. An extremely uneasy de facto segregation exists within the department, the presence of a black police chief notwithstanding, and his policies, coming from a background outside of law enforcement, only make an intolerable situation worse. The department is further torn asunder by the presence of its female officers, who are treated as separate and much less than equal by their male counterparts and whose second-class status is aggravated by divisions within their own ranks along the jagged lines of race and experience.
