Cop Town. Murphy’s husband died in Vietnam, and her affluent upbringing in Buckhead didn’t prepare her for the hostile reception she receives from male police officers when she’s groped and abused upon her arrival at the police precinct as a rookie cop. Kate ends up with partner Maggie Lawson whose brother and uncle are also police officers. The fast-paced action is punctuated by the ways Slaughter elaborates on the misogyny, racism, and homophobia rampant at that time. Fans of crime fiction will like the characters, the plot and tension of this novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Cop Town from amazon.com.
