"BROKEN'' is a book I would recommend to any person who has a love for suspense, small town secrets and likes inside facts about medical corporations. I had one problem. I was not prepared for the very bloody details, autopsies, etc. This is because I read cozies constantly. Reading about splattered blood, dripping blankets made me turn the pages a little bit slower out of shock and fear. Then, I would turn the pages faster because I wanted to be spared the details of death. I bet most people are use to reading these descriptive passages. These passages will not seem awful to these mystery readers. Probably, next time I will find myself more prepared for what is really seen by detectives and policemen at crime scenes.
I would like to say thank you to Karin Slaughter for giving the details behind the title, BROKEN. The story behind the title "BROKEN" is heartbreaking. It is another dose of reality. All of us are not destined to live fairy tale lives or ever get to the end of the rainbow and find the pot of gold. For the "BROKEN " I wanted to cry. Too often the BROKEN are innocent.
