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?

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!
I missed these characters when I'm done with one of the books in the series. Their personalities are wholesome yet aggressive. They are a derterminef pack dealing with day to day issues we all face. yet they continue to push thru life undeterred. I love these people and the series. I hate to finish because I know there are only a few books left to read. Come on Ms Slaughter, get to writing!
My Addiction is Audiobooks!!!! I have an amazingly large audio library. I enjoy romance, mysteries and generally good book by great storytellers.
Hope there is another in this series! I love this series and all the characters. Plot is very well developed!
