“Exciting...an intense look at the nature of loss and control, and how love can taint both.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Suspense that continually ratchets upward, a revealing look at domestic violence in all levels of society, and the continued development of a tight-knit cast of characters. This is prime Slaughter, must-read fare for thriller fans.” (Booklist (starred review))
“A thriller that’s part ‘True Detective,’ part ‘The Girl On The Train.’ All parts gripping.” (The Skimm)
From the Back Cover
The author of the acclaimed standalone Pretty Girls returns with this long-awaited new novel in her bestselling Will Trent series—an electrifying, emotionally complex thriller that plunges the Georgia detective into the darkest depths of a case that just might destroy him.
Top customer reviews
This book focuses a lot on the back story of Will and Angie (Will's wife), issues that have come up between Angie and Sarah (Will's girlfriend), and Angie's past with the department. The past is all tied together with the current case that the department is currently working on, with Angie right smack in the middle of. It is really hard to explain without giving spoilers.
Slaughter does what she normally does and gives great character development and a fantastic story that builds on her previous books. I honestly don't feel this is a stand alone book because there is so much rich history about characters that we have come to love (or hate) and to not have that going into this book, well I could see were you would just dislike all the characters.
I do wish for a more permanent ending with Angie. I am really sick of her having her claws in Will. I believe Slaughter wants to try to get us to like her in some small way like she did Lena in previous books, but I was never a fan of Lena's either.
Truly, you don't need to know more than that. Just read everything she writes and you will not be disappointed. She's been one of my favorites forever. This one is edge of your seat, can't put it down, must keep reading even if it's 3 am material.
