The Plot (from Goodreads):
There’s no police training stronger than a cop’s instinct. Faith Mitchell’s mother isn’t answering her phone. Her front door is open. There’s a bloodstain above the knob. Her infant daughter is hidden in a shed behind the house. All that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations taught Faith Mitchell goes out the window when she charges into her mother’s house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room. She sees a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn’t see is her mother.
“You know what we’re here for. Hand it over, and we’ll let her go.”
When the hostage situation turns deadly, Faith is left with too many questions, not enough answers. To find her mother, she’ll need the help of her partner, Will Trent, and they’ll both need the help of trauma doctor Sara Linton. But Faith isn’t just a cop anymore–she’s a witness. She’s also a suspect.
The thin blue line hides police corruption, bribery, even murder. Faith will have to go up against the people she respects the most in order to find her mother and bring the truth to light–or bury it forever.
In Fallen, we meet Faith’s mother Evelyn and learn more about the reason she left the police force. I forgot a lot about the characters’ backstories and how intricately they’re developed. This is why I always recommend that people read this series in order. There’s a lot you miss if you skip around or start with the more recently published books!
I enjoyed my re-read of Fallen no less than the others in the series, and it’s more of all the greatness Karin is known for. On to Criminal next!
I’ve also posted spoilers for all of the Grant County books, so check this link or the search bar to find what you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for a matching set of the Will Trent books, most of them are included in this set, which I purchased recently and love!

*Once again, I do recommend starting with the Grant County books. See this post.
