Complex And Well Executed
Girl, Forgotten by Karin Slaughter is a contemporary crime suspense that drew me in from the start.
It is told in two time periods – present day and 1981. The action heats up as the roots of present day crimes lie firmly in the past.
A group of friends from 1981 all protest their innocence – but someone must be lying. Someone knows the truth of what happened on that fatal night. What will it take for the truth to come out?
Secrets and lies have been circulating since 1981 after terrible crimes were committed. Someone is trying to bury the past. And someone is determined to uncover the truth so that history will never repeat itself.
The plotline is complex and well executed. The reader is kept on their toes as the action alternates in time.
All the characters were well drawn provoking some extremely strong responses from the reader. The character of Emily really lodged in my heart. She appeared weak to her peers but was in fact strong, tenacious and kind.
I thoroughly enjoyed Girl, Forgotten. It was an epic and compelling read that would make a fabulous Netflix series.
