Es ist der persönlichste Fall in Will Trents Laufbahn. Das spürt der Ermittler schon in dem Moment, als er das leer stehende Lagerhaus betritt und die Leiche entdeckt - die Leiche eines Ex-Cops. Blutige Fußabdrücke weisen auf ein zweites Opfer hin. Eine Frau. Von ihr fehlt jede Spur. Das Brisante: Gegen den prominenten Eigentümer des Lagerhauses ermittelt Will bereits seit einem halben Jahr wegen Vergewaltigung. Erfolglos! Als am Tatort zudem ein Revolver gefunden wird, der auf Wills Noch-Ehefrau Angie zugelassen ist, ahnt er, dass dies ein Spiel auf Leben und Tod wird. »Definitiv eine der besten Thriller-Autorinnen unserer Zeit.« Gillian Flynn »Karin Slaughters Helden sind weder strahlend noch fehlerfrei, und deswegen überzeugend.« Frauke Kaberka, dpa »Stoff für schlaflose Nächte!" buchjournal »Karin Slaughter gebührt ein Ehrenplatz auf der großen Thriller-Bühne! Und nach drei Jahren Pause auch endlich wieder ein neuer Will-Trent-Roman. Ihre Fans werden es ihr danken.« Michele Leber, Booklist »Ein typischer Karin Slaughter-Thriller: Toll ausgestaltete Figuren und ein spannender Fall, der bis zum überraschenden Ende für den Leser undurchsichtig bleibt.« Caroline Sielfang, Wochenpost »Garantiert die absolut richtige Literatur um dunkle kalte Winterabende perfekt zu überbrücken. In einer kuscheligen und gemütlichen Umgebung kann man sich das spannende Buch in aller Ruhe vornehmen. Ein toller Krimi.« Magazin Köllefornia »Mit ‚Blutige Fesseln‘ zeigt sich wieder einmal, dass die Thriller von Karin Slaughter Garanten für fesselnde Lesestunden sind, aus denen man gar nicht mehr auftauchen möchte. Eine ideale Lektüre für kalte und schmuddelige Herbst- und Winterabende.« Gudrun Loher, Artikeldienst Online

Husbands and wives. Mothers and daughters. The past and the future. Secrets bind them. And secrets can destroy them. The author of Pretty Girls returns with an electrifying, emotionally complex thriller that plunges its fascinating protagonist into the darkest depths of a mystery that just might destroy him. With the discovery of a murder at an abandoned construction site, Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is brought in on a case that becomes much more dangerous when the dead man is identified as an ex-cop. Studying the body, Sara Linton—the GBI’s newest medical examiner and Will’s lover—realizes that the extensive blood loss didn't belong to the corpse. Sure enough, bloody footprints leading away from the scene indicate there is another victim—a woman—who has vanished . . . and who will die soon if she isn’t found. Will is already compromised, because the site belongs to the city’s most popular citizen: a wealthy, powerful, and politically connected athlete protected by the world’s most expensive lawyers—a man who’s already gotten away with rape, despite Will’s exhaustive efforts to put him away. But the worst is yet to come. Evidence soon links Will’s troubled past to the case . . . and the consequences will tear through his life with the force of a tornado, wreaking havoc for Will and everyone around him, including his colleagues, family, friends—and even the suspects he pursues. Relentlessly suspenseful and furiously paced, peopled with conflicted, fallible characters who leap from the page, The Kept Woman is a seamless blend of twisty police procedural and ingenious psychological thriller -- a searing, unforgettable novel of love, loss, and redemption.

The long-awaited memoir by “one of the few original American writers of the last century” is a testament to the power of self-acceptance (Gore Vidal). John Rechy, author of City of Night and The Sexual Outlaw, has always known discrimination. Raised Mexican-American in El Paso, Texas, at a time when Latino children were routinely segregated, Rechy was often assumed to be Anglo because of his light skin, and had his name “changed” for him by a teacher, from Juan to John. As he grew older—and as his fascination with the memory of a notorious kept woman in his childhood deepened—Rechy became aware that his differences lay not just in his heritage, but in his sexuality. While he performed the roles expected of him by others—the authoritarians in the US Army during the Korean War, the bigoted relatives of his Anglo college classmates, or the men and women who wanted him to be something he was not—he never allowed them to define him. The “riveting” story of a life that bears witness to some of the most riotous changes of the past century, About My Life and the Kept Woman is as much a portrait of intolerance as of an individual who defied it to forge his own path (The Advocate). “Rechy might be called the first bard of West Hollywood.” —The New York Times “A skillfully paced story . . . As a memoirist, Rechy is both participant and observer, and he segues as easily between narrative and exegesis as his younger self did between the lure of the wild streets and the embrace of his traditional family.” —Los Angeles Magazine

Svetlana, that is the main character name, holds her confession primarily not in front of a reader, but in front of herself...
