Publisher's Summary

Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda’s motivation until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before, when his father was imprisoned for murder, this was Will’s home. 

It appears that the case that launched Amanda’s career 40 years ago has suddenly come back to life - and it involves the long-held mystery of Will’s birth and parentage. Now these two dauntless investigators will each need to face down demons from the past, if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed.

Outstanding police procedural!

I read CRIMINAL, Book 6 in the Will Trent series, when it was released in 2012. I'm unsure for the reason for this re-release but decided to listen because The Last Widow, Book 9 in the series, will be released on August 20. CRIMINAL tells more about Will Trent's background than any other novel. It also delves deeply into the background of Will's boss at the GBI Amanda Wagner. The rapid switches back and forth between present day and the 1970's require the listener to pay very close attention. Kathleen Early's narration is stellar as always. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I'm confused!!

How is it that the 6th book in this series came out after book 6.5, 7 and 8?? I love Karin Slaughter and I'm working my way through book 6 but I'm having deja vu with much of the story. I feel like I'm getting a refresher course in Will Trents life. Am I the only one who feels this way?

Very Disappointed!

The narrator was unbelievably wrong for this book
The storyline was good, but because of the narrator it became only mediocre and rather unbelievable.
