    Default Thriller Fiction - Spotting the Bad Guy

    I've now read four books by Karin Slaughter and have worked out how to find out 'whodunnit' without having to read the whole thing. Just wait for the introduction of the first balding guy in her book, and bingo! It's him each and every time.

    We see that in the movies all the time. The bald guy is always the killer, thug, or dope. Unless itís Bruce Willis or Jason Stathern.

    To be fair, the majority of bad guys and dopes in movies have a full head of hair. You're just much less likely to have a leading man with visible hairloss. It's important to remember that this doesn't mean you can't be a desirable man in real life if you are losing hair.

    I just thought Karin Slaughter deserved that post for being such a prejudiced bitch. I've pretty much given away every plot line of every book she's ever written.

    In Genesis, the bad guy has 'a bald patch like a soccer dad.'

    In Fractured, the bad guy, who works at the 'Copyright Store' whatever the hell that is, is described as having thinning hair.

    In Broken, the bad guy is described as being young but with a massive bald spot on the back of his head.

    I can't remember the name of the other one I read, but it's a fairly obvious pattern.

    I hope Karin Slaughter gets Alopecia Areata.

    She's probably a man-hater who has fixed upon this male-only condition to apply to her bad guy characters, or maybe she has daddy issues and her father is/was bald.

    Is she actually any good as a writer? There are endless other authors you can choose from. Ditch the Karin Slaughter and read something else.

    I thought the books were okay at first. By the end of the fourth I was very pissed off with her and decided to get my own books instead of borrowing them from my girlfriend!

    I just thought as payback I'd give away the perpetrator in all her whodunnits!

    Well, I also read one of them but I also didn't know how to find out whodunnit, without reading the whole thing. I love to read but I am not good at waiting for work. My teacher gave me so much essay work to do, so I am reading an example of an essay on https://blablawriting.com/essay-examples/fiction and while reading about it, I found your post, If you know how to find whodunnit, without reading the whole thing then please let me know.

    Haha, I just watched a movie with Jason Statham Wrath of Man yesterday. A good film, by the way, I recommend
