Cop Town

by Karin Slaughter

Kate Murphy’s first day as an Atlanta police officer couldn’t get off to a worse start.

Against the backdrop of 1970s Atlanta, Murphy has signed up to join a police force ravaged by in-fighting and on the hunt for a killer who likes nothing better than killing officers of the law.

Karin Slaughter has established her name with a series of bestsellers based on strong characters, selling 30 million books in 32 languages around the world. With Murphy she has again come up with another winner with a compelling story to tell in the crime thriller Cop Town.
