Now it's up to Will Trent, an agent from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, to pick up the pieces before they completely fall apart.
Thus begins this shattering thriller from one of the genre's undisputed masters, guaranteed to hold listeners in its twisted thrall.

"Heartpounding....Raw energy...[plus] a pair of complex and deeply flawed heroes, will leave readers clamouring for the next installment." (Publishers Weekly)
I got spoiled by listening to Criminal first. It was both character- and plot-driven.
This book is neither. Endless conversations between characters about what's already been said several times. I got sick of waiting for something to happen.
The beginning started out so well then like a bad wine just fell flat. It didn't keep my interest and I found my mind wandering will I listened to it. The narration of this book was awesome... probably some of the best I heard. I finished it just to find out who done it.
I have read a number of her books and always find them interesting and engaging. I didn't like the narrator of this book that much. His southern accent was kind of annoying.
Once again I I found myself enjoying a Karin Slaughter story but distracted by the voice narration. Karin fleshes out her characters starting with Book One. She give you enough insight into them to hook you on the character and with each subsequent book she fleshes out more.
The mysteries are second for me, Im more intrigued by the personal lives of her characters.
I hated the narrators voice for Will, he made him sound, for lack of a better term, slow. Will is introverted and pensive but he's also sharp. Kathleen Early remains my favorite narrator.
I enjoyed this book but some terms that incorrectly referred to transgender people. The book used the term "She-male" which is pretty offensive, as well as, "transgendered" instead of the proper "transgender". I understand that authors can write stories in their own way but I wouldn't have felt comfortable without saying something.
I enjoy that quiet time where I can sit with a very good cup of coffee and listen to a good audio book.
I just started listening to Karen's books and I will have to say that she has a writers mind. Her books contain things that remind me of the Criminal Minds series. She is a good writer and her books force to to listen to the entire readings. The readers chosen have been doing a very good job expressing change. I suggest you take a listen, you will get hooked.
