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)
Great story, characters, and suspense... Highly recommend the series, the characters are so empathetic you get to feel like they are your neighbors. All the positive reviews go double here, enjoy
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
Yes. Lots of twists and turns.
I am glad I have started with this series.
Say something about yourself!
I just wish there was a list on the order of the books. Other than that LOVE it.
Retired former magazine editor who is working harder than ever as Mr. Dad to his 11-year-old daughter.
I prefer my mystery/thrillers to have fictional, larger-than-life characters. This book had none. Their absence took away from what was otherwise a pretty good story. The only character who showed any moxie was Bernard the bad guy. Amanda had promise, but she was pretty much a minor character. Trent was pathetic. Mitchell just a little better. I hope Lee Child comes out with another Jack Reacher novel real soon. I need a fix.
Boy, what a waste of money. I had listened/read other books by this author that I liked, so picked some others for my wishlist. What a complete waste of time and money. grrrrrr I really wish they had some sort of rating or content warning for these books, especially since you can't "thumb through" the pages, and the short sample isn't gonna include the worst language/scenes. There was so much profanity, crudeness and vulgarity throughout, I couldn't even ff through it enough to find a suitable part.
Audible is my "can't live without". I enjoy the other readers recommendations. Keep them coming!
If I choose to read about man's inhumanity to man I have only to read a daily newspaper.
This story is written deliberately to shock and nauseate the reader.
but it kept my interest.
The entire book is watching the investigation - a police procedural. The suspense is wondering if the kidnaped victim is alive and if they can find her or save her. When two witnesses were questioned by the police, they did not tell what they knew. That was frustrating because it delayed things. When they eventually told a day or so later, the investigation speeded in new directions. I was angry at the witnesses. They were minor characters. Their reasons for withholding information were not interesting.
I liked the endings for the bad guys.
Will the investigator has a brain problem similar to dyslexia. He can’t read or write. He uses voice recorders and other things to compensate. I enjoyed the way Will’s brain was weak in one way, but stronger than normal in others. He had amazing perception and intuition for investigating.
Phil Gigante was good, above average. But his voice for females was off - too high pitched.
Genre: crime mystery
Not only was the story cheesey-bad, the narration was even worse. One of the worst books I have ever bought. I could not even finish it, so by the 4th hour I just hit fast forward until I got to the last few minutes and that was that.
