Karin Slaughter's new thriller is an epic tale of love, loyalty, and murder that encompasses 40 years, two chillingly similar murder cases, and a good man's deepest secrets.
Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and he is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda's motivation, until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before - when Will's father was imprisoned for murder - this was his home…
Flash back nearly 40 years. In the summer Will Trent was born, Amanda Wagner is taking her first steps in the boy's club that is the Atlanta police department. One of her first cases is to investigate a brutal crime in one of the city's worst neighborhoods. Amanda and her partner, Evelyn, are the only ones who seem to care if an arrest is ever made. Now the case that launched Amanda's career has suddenly come back to life, and it is intertwined with the long-held mystery of Will's birth and parentage. And they will each need to face down demons from the past if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed on Atlanta today.

The constant overly graphic detail of drug use and drugs and drug litter was unnecessary and so prolific that in the first three chapters it consumed nearly half of the story.
Need s a warning label as far as Im concerned!
The plot was stupid, and it was so wordy. I cannot believe I listened to the entire book.
No interesting plot twists. Boring book. Just a bunch of yapping between characters. And why would everyone in the book vomit when they see a dead person. What a cliche!
The thing that was missing in this book was a plot. If there had been some kind of coherent story it might have been better.
It was so very, very dull and boring.
The story was so dull I did not care about the characters.
Anger, disappointment disgust
Really, really awful. Listened for three hours and don't know what the plot is (assuming there is a plot). Just really, really dull. I kept trying to listen to more hoping it would get better. Never did.
