APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Karin Slaughter’s standalone thriller shares the small-town charm of her acclaimed Grant County series. But the quickfire pace of Pieces of Her makes it feel like a Southern, female take on Jason Bourne. Andy is out to lunch with her genteel mother, Laura, when they witness a shooting. Laura’s shockingly quick response sends Andy on a collision course with her mum’s secret past—and on the run for her life. Detailed flashbacks into Laura’s fascinating backstory careen alongside Andy’s beat-the-clock search for answers, leading to an explosive "like mother, like daughter" payoff.
