Michael Connelly calls Karin Slaughter "unrivaled among thriller writers." This gripping, unforgettable short story proves why. And be sure to order Karin's new novel, Pretty Girls, on sale September 29, 2015.
Blonde hair, blue eyes is a prequel short story to the new Karin Slaughter novel Pretty girls. This was my first read from Slaughter but since a croatian publishing house started translating her novels and she visited Croatia, I decided to give it a shot. I am not usually one to read thrillers and misteries, I rather watch them, this was new to me. I have to say that while the writing is wonderful, I never connected with the main character Julia. And since the story is set in 1991, I liked the glimpse of the world in that time. I will read Pretty Girls because I am intrigued but this story should have been a part of the book.
