It’s the most dangerous case of Will Trent’s career. He knows this from the moment he sets foot in the abandoned Atlanta warehouse where a body lies on the floor—the body of an ex-cop. Bloody footprints leading away from the scene reveal that another victim, evidently a woman, was carried away … and has vanished into thin air. And, worst of all, the warehouse belongs to the city’s biggest and most high-profile athlete—a local hero protected by the world’s most expensive lawyers. A hero married to Will’s ex-wife. A hero whom Will’s superiors at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation have spent the last six months investigating for rape.
But for Will—and also for Sara Linton, the GBI’s newest medical examiner—the case is about to get even worse. Because an unexpected discovery at the scene reveals a personal link to Will’s troubled past … and the consequences will wreak havoc on his life and the lives of those he loves, those he works with, and those he pursues.
Relentlessly suspenseful and furiously paced, peopled with characters who leap from the page, The Kept Woman marks Karin Slaughter’s triumphant return to her most popular series.

Great story. Keeps your attention
A Kept Woman
In my opinion, one of Slaughter’s best. Not much gore, just a good, mystery/thriller.
Enjoyed the plot and love Will Trent, Faith and Amanda. I’ve known them for a while.
I’m fascinated by Angie, irritated by Sarah. That makes it fun.
Great Narration - and I appreciated the book being labeled as “Unabridged” on the cover.
Hope Karen turns out more similar to this one. Pandora53
