PIECES OF HER by Karin Slaughter - The Guardian "The best recent thrillers"

The Guardian | July 27, 2018

The Guardian included Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter in their recent review round-up of the best thrillers!

"American writer Karin Slaughter’s Pieces of Her (HarperCollins, £20) shifts between two time zones, the present and the 1980s, to show the change of attitudes in sexual politics. Andrea Oliver, a 911 operator, has always been intimidated by her high-achieving parents. She is celebrating her birthday in a mall cafe when a gunman opens fire, and is coolly dispatched by her mother, Laura. This devastating action changes Andrea’s image of Laura, whose newfound celebrity results in the revelation of her hidden past. Slaughter judiciously keeps the characterisation of her imperilled protagonists to the fore."
