Publisher's Summary

He saw what you did.

He knows who you are....

From the New York Times best-selling author of Pieces of Her and The Silent Wife, an electrifying stand-alone thriller.

An ordinary life...

Leigh Collier has worked hard to build what looks like a normal life. She has a good job as a defense attorney, a daughter doing well in school, and even her divorce is relatively civilized - her life is just as unremarkable as she’d always hoped it would be.

...hides a devastating past...

But Leigh’s ordinary life masks a childhood that was far from average...a childhood tarnished by secrets, broken by betrayal, and finally torn apart by a devastating act of violence.

...but now the past is catching up...

Then a case lands on her desk - defending a wealthy man accused of rape. It’s the highest profile case she’s ever been given - a case that could transform her career, if she wins. But when she meets the accused, she realizes that it’s no coincidence that he’s chosen her as his attorney. She knows him. And he knows her. More to the point, he knows what happened 20 years ago and why Leigh has spent two decades running.

...and time is running out.

If she can’t get him acquitted, she’ll lose much more than the case. The only person who can help her is her estranged younger sister Callie, the last person Leigh would ever want to ask for help. But suddenly she has no choice....

Stunning!

I just finished this audiobook, and perhaps I should apologize to family members and dogs who have needed my attention over the last couple days. Wow. This is a powerhouse novel by Slaughter, who grabs your attention from the get go. She never fails to shock and dazzle with her knowledge of abuse, the law, anatomy and drug use. Thank goodness she knows how to insert humor, wit and charming characters to bring us some relief. I don’t usually cry while reading or listening to her books- but I did this time. It was rich with relationship nuance and real life complexity stemming from trauma.

And while I am being thankful, let me thank the author for continuing to employ Kathleen Early. I do think this is a literary -Oscar performance for Early. She is incredible. She seamlessly moves from character to character.. while other books require multiple actors.

My only regret is that I will have to wait for her next novel- to get my own personal fix…

Someone tell kathleen how to pronounce Uga!

As a die hard bulldawg, my skin cringed when Kathleen butchered the pronunciation of Uga. But besides that, this book (and the narration) were hands down one of my favorites!!! Buy it now— you won’t regret it!

A new favorite

This may be my favorite Karin Slaughter stand alone novel. I loved the characters and their relationships. As with each of her books, Ms Slaughter is a master of description and I can visualize every moment. I am once again sad that I have finished the book so quickly and now have to wait for the announcement of her next book.

As for the narrator Kathleen Early, I am so happy she continues to be the voice of Ms Slaughter's books. It is like hearing a good friend I have missed. Her performance is exciting and gives such power to the novel.

thank you both.

Too many Covid references. Politics has entered her books.

I have loved Karen Slaughter’s works so far but this one is my least favorite. Too many political references. It’s like we can’t get away from it. Fiction should just be fiction. Disappointed.

Addiction - Spoiler Alert

Our oldest son died from a heroine overdose on his son’s first birthday. He had chronic pain for years. I have never felt more at peace with his addiction and death as I do right now. Thank you Karin Slaughter

Leave out the politics.

Use to love your writing. Most Americans eve sick of politics and you lost a long time follower.

We read/listen to books to escape or take a break from reality.

Last thing I wanted to hear is your political/world views.

alright already... I GET IT! YOU ARE AN ADDICT.

I am moving on before I get to chapter 3. Your obsession with all that is shooting up gets tedious in chapter one and that is 55 minutes long..I never actually got to the story. Endless descriptions of herione and its paraphernalia reminds me of of a bad 12 step meeting with addicts wallowing in the glory of their habit. Blah Blah... if you have any experience with recovery it is all that dull.

Ugh. Ruined with SJW drivel

I've enjoyed Karin's books and understand she has an agenda. No problem. The stories are worth it. This one was SUPER heavy handed and it was extremely off putting. I regularly listen to books multiple times. I'm not returning this one, but I don't see myself listening again. It's too bad, really, because Lee and Cali's story was a pretty good one.

As usual, Kathleen pronounces words oddly, pauses at strange times, etc. I avoid books that she narrates but deal with her for Slaughter stories because I usually enjoy them.

ONE OF HER BEST

I always buy Karin Slaughter's books the day that they are released. This may be my favorite, so far.
