My Book Pledge Featured Read: The Silent Wife

Happy Tuesday Savvy Readers! If you’re in Ontario like us, chances are you enjoyed a nice long-weekend (albeit, a little rainy!) that made for a perfect weekend of reading. Either way, I hope you freed up some room on your TBR because this week’s My Book Pledge Featured Read is the thriller we’ve all been waiting for, Karin Slaughter‘s The Silent Wife!

GBI investigator Will Trent has never turned down a case. But when he’s charged with investigating the murder of a prisoner during a prison riot, he’s confronted with some disturbing information…


One of the inmates claims he is innocent of the brutal attack for which he has been accused, insisting he was framed by a corrupt law enforcement team and that the real culprit is still out there—a serial killer who has been preying on women for years.


If Will reopens the investigation, the opportunistic convict is willing to provide the information GBI needs about the riot murder. And only days ago, another young woman was viciously murdered in a state park in northern Georgia. Is it a fluke, or could there be a serial killer on the loose?

As Will Trent digs into both crimes it becomes clear that he must solve the cold case in order to find the answer. Yet nearly a decade has passed—time for memories to fade, witnesses to vanish, evidence to disappear, and lies to become truth. But Will can’t crack either mystery without the help of the one person he doesn’t want involved…

Well, Savvy Readers, are you adding this one to your TBR? Don’t forget to add it to your My Book Pledge shelf and let me know in the comments below or on Twitter @SavvyReader.
