Book: Broken
Series: Will Trent #4
Author: Karin Slaughter

When Special Agent Will Trent arrives in Grant County, he finds a police department determined to protect its own and far too many unanswered questions about a prisoner's death. He doesn't understand why Officer Lena Adams is hiding secrets from him. He doesn't understand her role in the death of Grant County's popular police chief. He doesn't understand why that man's widow, Dr. Sara Linton, needs him now more than ever to help her crack this case.
While the police force investigates the murder of a young woman pulled from a frigid lake, Trent investigates the police force, putting pressure on Adams just when she's already about to crack. Caught between two complicated and determined women, trying to understand Linton's passionate distrust of Adams, the facts surrounding Chief Tolliver's death, and the complexities of this insular town, Trent will unleash a case filled with explosive secrets--and encounter a thin blue line that could be murderous if crossed. -Goodreads
Review: Sara Linton is visiting her parents in Grant County when a college student is pulled from the lake. She's been murdered. A local boy is quickly arrested and confesses, then commits suicide in jail. Sara doesn't believe he's guilty and calls in a favor to Amanda and requests a more detailed investigation. Will Trent arrives and is on the case. 

While I love the murder investigations in this series, my favorite part of the series is the partnership of Will and Faith. Faith spent the majority of the book in Atlanta waiting for the birth of her baby, so all we got was a few phone calls. This book seemed to progress the relationship of Will and Sara while they worked together to solve the case. The case itself was okay, not as interesting as the previous installments. 

Grade: 3/5
