“Another good K. Slaughter thriller!” -Rhouse

New York Times Bestselling Author

Karin Slaughter’s internationally bestselling novels are as notable for their vivid portraits of lives shadowed by loss and heartbreak as they are for their dramatic criminal investigations. Her latest offering features the return of her most compelling characters and introduces memorable new ones in a tale of corruption, murder, and confrontation that will leave more than one life . . .

When Special Agent Will Trent arrives in Grant County, he finds a police department determined to protect its own and far too many unanswered questions about a prisoner’s death. He doesn’t understand why Officer Lena Adams is hiding secrets from him. He doesn’t understand her role in the death of Grant County’s popular police chief. He doesn’t understand why that man’s widow, Dr. Sara Linton, needs him now more than ever to help her crack this case.

While the police force investigates the murder of a young woman pulled from a frigid lake, Trent investigates the police force, putting pressure on Adams just when she’s already about to crack. Caught between two complicated and determined women, trying to understand Linton’s passionate distrust of Adams, the facts surrounding Chief Tolliver’s death, and the complexities of this insular town, Trent will unleash a case filled with explosive secrets—and encounter a thin blue line that could be murderous if crossed.

Spellbinding and keenly paced, Broken is Karin Slaughter at her best. Here is an unforgettable story of raw emotions, dangerous assumptions, the deadly and layered game of betrayal, and a man’s determination to expose the most painful of human truths—no matter how deeply they’re hidden . . . or how devastating.

Think ‘American Sniper’ meets ‘The Godfather.’

As Bob Burke’s 737 lands at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, he sees a man strangling a woman on a rooftop below. No one believes him, of course, but he knows what he saw, and Bob Burke isn’t the kind of guy to let a thing like that rest.

Slight of build and now a telecommunications company executive, this “telephone guy’ is a former Army Ranger and Delta Force commander. He spent four tours in Iraq and the rugged mountains of Afghanistan running ‘special operations’ missions, and is one of the most lethal killers the US government ever produced.

Over the next three days, he finds himself butting heads with the Chicago mob, crooked suburban cops, a zealous US Attorney, a psychopathic doctor, and his own vindictive soon-to-be-ex-wife, who is trying to take his company away from him.

As his big, muscular, Delta sergeants will readily admit, he’s the one you don’t want to meet in a dark alley. Whether he’s carrying a Barrett .50-caliber sniper rifle, a knife, or only his bare hands, he is equally lethal.

So, when the bodies start falling and a young woman needs help, he doesn’t hesitate. His new combat zones might be in a glittering high-rise office building, a tract house in a suburban subdivision, or a wooded Chicago Forest Preserve District, but they started it and Bob Burke intends to finish it. And when he needs some backup, he knows just the guys to call.

“Great book — read it.” -Randolph B.

On the night of July 4th 1778, George Rogers Clark and his men sprung a surprise attack on the village of Kashaskia, “and within a very short time we were in complete possession of the place, with every avenue guarded to prevent any one from escaping and giving the alarm to the other villages.”

Thus began Clark’s conquest of Illinois.

For the next year and a half, Clark and his troops swept through the state taking hold of the old French posts, that were now occupied by British garrisons, including Cahokia and Vincennes.

Fighting against the experienced Anglo-Irish soldier Governor Henry Hamilton, the young Clark was pushed to his limits and explains in detail how he was able to outmanoeuvre his opponent.

The Conquest of the Illinois by George Rogers Clark is a fascinating first person account of one of the most important campaigns of the American Revolution. The book explains the full planning of Clark’s expedition and its aftermath. It is essential reading for anyone interested in the American Revolution and those who fought in it.

George Rogers Clark was a surveyor, soldier, and militia officer from Virginia who became the highest ranking American military officer on the northwestern frontier during the American Revolutionary War. Because the British ceded the entire Northwest Territory to the United States in the 1783 Treaty of Paris, Clark has often been hailed as the “Conqueror of the Old Northwest”. This edition of his memoir was edited by Milo Milton Quaife and published in 1920.
