Do you agree with BookPage mystery columnist Bruce Tierney that Karin Slaughter's books are "superbly crafted, relentlessly plot-driven and populated with admirably flawed characters"?
If so, then you'll be happy to learn that Slaughter has signed a deal to write two new books. They'll be set in Atlanta and feature characters from both her Atlanta and Grant County series. The first book, Fallen, will be published in May 2011.
Publisher's Marketplace also notes that Slaughter is "in talks for her novels to be turned into a television series."
