by Karin Slaughter | Read by Kathleen Early

Kathleen Early is no stranger to Karin Slaughter’s work. With each subsequent book she narrates, her ease with Slaughter’s worlds seems to deepen. In this most recent release, an array of Southern women pulls Early’s strengths front and center. She enriches the atmosphere and characters through subtle variations in accents, tone, and intensity. With insightful precision, she interprets rookie officer Kate Murphy’s growing confidence, veteran cop Gail Patterson’s spunky attitude, even strung-out prostitute Violet’s abject terror. Early depicts the male roles with an equal strength and emphasizes Slaughter’s sharp humor. COP TOWN is a celebration of pioneering women in law enforcement, and Early is hosting the party. J.F.
