Beyond Reach: A Novel (Grant County)
This book is really good. I have read about 5-6 newer novels written by Karin Slaughter. I was not disappointed by reading one of her older books. She winds another mystery that has many surprising twists and turns, as always.
This book is a background on some of her newer novels, so it was interesting for me to 'catch up' on the background story. Doctor Sara Linton and her husband, Jeffrey Tolliver, a police officer, go to Grant County to help out his troubled partner, Lina. Lina's family history as well as her past relationships have landed her in jail accused of murder. Jeffrey and Sara must work their way through the potentially corrupt local police force as well as Lina's family and a small town that is not fond of outsiders to figure out what has happened. Lina is no help as she doesn't want Jeffrey or Sara to get hurt and begs them to leave town. In the end, it is worked out, but horrible surprises await them. I won't spoil it!
