READ ë Pieces of Her REVIEW ñ MIZUNOWAVERIDER.US ´ Karin Slaughter FREE READ Pieces of Her ; she knows she’s never wanted anything than to live a uiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she’s never kept a secret in her life Because we all know our mothers don’t weBut all that changes when a Saturday afternoon trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura she was someone completely different For nearly thirty years she’s been hiding from. Karin Slaughter gives us a thriller that explores the role of the mother and the mother daughter relationship Andrea Andy Cooper is an unambitious woman who has largely gone through the motions of living She never completed college and she has barely been engaged in any personal relationships Unhappy in New York she returned home to nurse her mother Laura through the worst of her breast cancer treatment She has no impetus to create an independent life for herself and is secure in the knowledge that she knows Laura inside out a pillar of the community an ordinary woman and everyday mom Whilst in a diner a young shooter Jonah Helsinger blasts away a mother and daughter lining up a frozen and immobile Andy as his next target when Laura steps in front of her telling him to kill her instead What follows next is captured on mobile video footage that goes viral nationwide showing a composed Laura killing Helsinger with his knife whilst suffering serious injuries herself Andy is shell shocked at this picture of her mother as a ninja with the media referring to Laura as a killing machine Who is this woman masuerading as her motherWith unexpected and horrifying events occurring that hint at Laura s clandestine past they bring a whole heap of danger in the present as a disorientated Andrea initially heeds Laura s advice to leave town go to a storage unit and then head to Idaho until it is safe for her to return Andy is to make no contact with her or Gordon the black lawyer she considers to be her father However Andy s intense curiosity about Laura has her picking away and peeling away at her mother s past that slowly begins to be revealed through the dual narrative of a younger Laura Andy s foray into the past brings danger to her and others It pushes Andy from a woman who has merely reacted to events in her life to a independent person as she is forced to handle a world that has gone crazy on her What Andy does know indisputably about Laura is that she will not let anything happen to her beloved daughter and she will go to any lengths to protect her Will this allow her to accept the pieces of Laura she comes to knowAt first when I had read this latest offering from Karin Slaughter I was not sure how I felt about it Upon reflection the I thought about it the I liked it The focus on the maternal instinct how far will a mother go for a child is beautifully illustrated here Whilst perhaps far fetched here and there I was willing to let that go for the fascinating creation of Laura and her dramatic past and that of Andy walking on territory that she could never have forseen I think it would be well nigh impossible to say that we know all the pieces of anyone we are close to and true to that adage Andy does not find out everything about her mother An interesting different but nevertheless gripping psychological thriller Many thanks to HarperCollins for an ARC
