Karin Slaughter, the best-selling author of Fallen and a tireless supporter of libraries, has written a digital short story for Amazon’s Thomas & Mercer mystery imprint that will be available as a Kindle Single on Aug. 25, 2011. One hundred percent of Slaughter’s proceeds from the sales of “Thorn in My Side” in the United States will go to her SavetheLibraries campaign, while proceeds from sales in the United Kingdom will go to benefit The Reading Agency. What’s the story about? Twin brothers Wayne and Kirk go out on the town one Saturday night; one brother is a devout Christian, the other the polar opposite. When one of the siblings picks up a girl, dark deeds ensue. If you’re a Slaughter fan, what are you waiting for? Show your support for public libraries by pre-ordering your copy now.
