Cop Town by Karin Slaughter
1970’s. Atlanta. Race war or serial killer?
Maggie Lawson, twenty-three-year-old cop, is thrust into the mystery when her brother is almost killed by a man known as “The Shooter”. Maggie, of course, is concerned for her brother’s health– at least until things start not adding up.
Kate Murphy is a rookie officer who is more wet behind the ears than grown up. After her husband is killed in Vietnam, she is paired up with Maggie, who takes her under her wings.
When the two are given Maggie’s brother’s case to investigate, all hell breaks loose– literally.
Like Slaughter’s other books, this one is full of action, danger, and suspense. I, personally, was happy that she was so realistic in terms of the characterization of the 1970’s Atlanta residents.
Not for the faint of heart, this one will keep you on the edge of your seat– begging for more.
