Cold Cold Heart
Random House UK, Cornerstone
A chilling Valentine digital short story from the No.1 bestselling author of the Will Trent series.
Pam is a fifty-two-year-old teacher who has let herself go for the first time in her life. It’s two years since her husband – ex husband – John died and she’s heading from Georgia to California for the third and – she hopes – final time. But just what lies in store for her there…?
Previously in a collection edited by No. 1 bestseller Lee Child, First Thrills, and now available on its own.
This was a very short short story – a story that highlights the feminist ideals that permeate Karin Slaughter’s writing. This is a relatively light story from this accomplished author of dark crime. I love the playfulness of the title – the full ironic meaning revealed as the story progresses. Revenge is best served- cold!
