Post Script: Cold Cold Heart – Karin Slaughter

Cold Cold Heart

Karin Slaughter

Random House UK, Cornerstone

ISBN: 9781448149179

Description:

A chilling Valentine digital short story from the No.1 bestselling author of the Will Trent series.

Pam is a fifty-two-year-old teacher who has let herself go for the first time in her life. It’s two years since her husband – ex husband – John died and she’s heading from Georgia to California for the third and – she hopes – final time. But just what lies in store for her there…?

Previously in a collection edited by No. 1 bestseller Lee Child, First Thrills, and now available on its own.

My View:

This was a very short short story  – a story that highlights the feminist ideals that permeate Karin Slaughter’s writing. This is a relatively light story from this accomplished author of dark crime. I love the playfulness of the title – the full ironic  meaning revealed as the story progresses.   Revenge is best served- cold!

Karin Slaughter Fans – News, Feature Film and Award

I have just finished reading an advanced readers copy of Karin’s latest book – Unseen. It was as expected – BRILLIANT. But more on that later – the publishers have asked if I can hold back my review till closer to the July release, I will  comply with their wish.  But I can share this:

Have yous seen Karin’s web page?  So much exciting news for her fans- first – the new book ( which I have alerted you to- out in July), the Edgar nomination for her short story The Unremarkable Heart – this is in ebook format and deserves your attention; it is chillingly evil, is  twisted  and compelling  and so so credible – it made me feel nauseous – the crime and intent …not the writing. It made me feel so passionately, so helpless, so disgusted with the crime I warned my daughter not to read it ( and she is an adult !) I did not want her to experience this rawness, this intensity of feeling. What a great writer to evoke such feeling from just the typed word.

And we are possibly going to see the Will Trent/Sara Linton series on the big screen.  The rights have been acquired and Karin is writing the script.

Great news all round.

So please have a look at Karin Slaughter’s web site-http://www.karinslaughter.com/ ,there is even a  competition page. 🙂 And read the new book when it is released- you will not be disappointed.
