Bill Black is a scary guy: a tall ex-con who rides to work on a Harley, and trails an air of violence wherever he goes. In Macon, Georgia, Bill has caught the eye of a wiry little drug dealer and his cunning girlfriend. They think Bill might be a useful ally. They don’t know that Bill is a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent named Will Trent. Or that he is fighting his own demons, undercover and cut off from the support of Sara Linton - the woman he loves, who he dares not tell he is putting himself at such risk.
Sara herself has come to Macon because of a cop shooting: Her stepson Jared has been gunned down in his home. Sara holds Lena, Jared’s wife, responsible: The female detective has been a magnet for trouble all her life, and it’s not the first time someone Sara loved got caught in the crossfire. Furious, Sara gets involved in the same case that Will is working without even knowing it, and soon danger is swirling around both of them.
In a novel of fierce intensity, shifting allegiances, and shocking twists, two investigations collide around a conspiracy on both sides of the law. Karin Slaughter’s latest is both an electrifying thriller and a piercing study of human nature: What happens when good people face the unseen evils in their lives?

Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
The seventh and newest in the great, Will Trent, police procedural series. In this addition Will goes undercover to try to find out who is running a drug ring that is leaving a string of bodies in its wake. Will uncovers more than anyone could have possibly imagined, and when Sarah his love interest becomes unexpectedly involved, he is torn and confused on how to procede. Drugs, corruption, murder, and perversion pits detectives, in two seperate branches of law enforcement, against each other.
Most of the regular characters return and there are some new characters that are well developed and make for a good love hate extension of the cast. Karin Slaughters books are not for the faint of heart, they are gritty but the writing and unexpected twists keep me coming back for more. Kathleen Early did an excelent job narrating and she always adds a little something to the oomph of the story.
A fresh story filled with crime, passion, and suspense twists. Had my full attention, with great characters and performances. loved listening!
The story, repeat characters and the narrator.
Best would be will Trent.
Yes and she's great.
Murder, loss, and eventually love.
Would recommend both the series written by Karin Slaughter. Entertaining and definitely catches your attention and interest.
Tell us about yourself! Female, Realtor
Good book. Story stops and goes back to what happened before and hard to tell what's going on. Made the main MAN to simple and to weak to be the hero. Still a good story with never a dull moment.
Love escaping reality by indulging in a great book.
Very much. I love suspense and this book had me looking forward to each chapter.
Great suspense fictional read / listen!
