Book Review – THE UNREMARKABLE HEART by Karin Slaughter – Short Story

The Unremarkable Heart by Karin SlaughterThe Unremarkable Heart is a short story originally released by Karin Slaughter only in ebook format.


Karin Slaughter’s The Unremarkable Heart is a short story with stark and dark subject matter, with moments of surprising compassion. It’s hard to talk about the plot without giving too much away. Suffice to say short stories really highlight an author’s talent and in this outing Karin Slaughter shows hers.

Reading this felt like walking a tightrope – the prose taut and tense.
