When medical examiner Sara Linton and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver take a trip away from the small town of Heartsdale, it should be a straightforward weekend at the beach. But they decide to take a detour via Jeffrey's hometown, and things go violently wrong when Jeffrey's best friend Robert shoots dead an intruder who breaks into his home. Jeffrey and Sara are first on the scene and Jeffrey's keen to clear his friend's name, but for Sara things aren't so simple. And when Jeffrey appears to change the crime scene, Sara no longer knows who to trust.
Twelve years later, Sara and Jeffrey are caught up in a shockingly brutal attack which threatens to destroy both their lives. But they're not random victims. They've been targeted. And it seems the past is catching up with both of them....

It jumped all over the place.
This is the first Karin Slaughter book I have been disappointed with.
"Entertaining but not the best"
It ties together some loose ends of ongoing story
Not as good as others
Yes god voiceover initialling a bit irritating but warmed in the end
Yes there is one
"Not for the faint hearted!"
As an avid fan of Karin Slaughter I thoroughly enjoyed this story, as with all of her previous novels it is not for the faint hearted but the story grips you from start to finish. Highly recommended.
"No the best from Karin!"
This was quite disappointing; This was far too predictable in terms of hero and heroine cliches. This is far from the best I've read of hers.
This is my first Karin Slaughter book. It's based around relationships and the past with the story jumping back and forth between 15 years. It's my first Slaughter book and it was...okay. It's the 4th in the "Grant County" series but I found it fine as a stand alone book. The book is full of twists about the past between groups of friend and relations. I was expecting a bit more of a thriller, which is was in parts. But this wasn't the main focus. I'm going to give Slaughter another go but next time I'll try one of her "Will Trent" series instead.
