An Evening with Karin Slaughter and guest host Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli.
Bestselling author Karin Slaughter is one of crime fiction’s most celebrated award-winning writers, widely regarded as a literary force who consistently delivers character driven, nail biting suspense novels with psychological intensity.
This summer the critically acclaimed and New York Times bestselling master of suspense delivers her first stand alone novel, Cop Town, a thrilling tale of crime and struggle set in Atlanta in the mid-1970s.
Cop Town is an atmospheric nail-biter from the author that the Huffington Post called "an exemplary storyteller" and "one of the great talents of the 21st century."
Slaughter’s first novel Blindsighted became an international success, was published in almost 30 languages, and made the Crime Writers’ Association’s Dagger Award shortlist for "Best Thriller Debut" of 2001. She is the author of the Will Trent series that takes place in Atlanta and features GBI special agent Will Trent, his partner Faith Mitchell and Angie Polaski. She also pens the Grant County series set in rural Georgia, which stars Dr. Sara Linton, the town’s pediatrician and coroner, Jeffrey Tolliver, her wayward ex-husband and chief of police and Lena Adams, the county’s only female detective.
Slaughter is a native Georgian and when not promoting her books domestically and abroad, always returns home to Atlanta, Georgia where she splits her time between the kitchen and the living room. Her books have sold 30 million worldwide to date and she is the only author in the history of the Dutch bestseller list to have eight titles on the list, including the number one spot.
