Publisher's Summary

Karin Slaughter's new thriller is an epic tale of love, loyalty, and murder that encompasses 40 years, two chillingly similar murder cases, and a good man's deepest secrets.

Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and he is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda's motivation, until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before - when Will's father was imprisoned for murder - this was his home…

Flash back nearly 40 years. In the summer Will Trent was born, Amanda Wagner is taking her first steps in the boy's club that is the Atlanta police department. One of her first cases is to investigate a brutal crime in one of the city's worst neighborhoods. Amanda and her partner, Evelyn, are the only ones who seem to care if an arrest is ever made. Now the case that launched Amanda's career has suddenly come back to life, and it is intertwined with the long-held mystery of Will's birth and parentage. And they will each need to face down demons from the past if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed on Atlanta today.

    Story
    "Terrible narration"

    Apparently everyone loves this narrator but me. I am finding her so irritating that it interferes with my ability to enjoy the book.

    She puts emPHAsis in THE wrong plaCES and it drives me crazy. She's trying to read distinctly, I know, and I appreciate that, as it's much better than the mumbling some narrators do, but the emphasis is just distracting.

    If I "read" any more of Slaughter's books, I will do so in print.

    "Unbelievably bad"

    I couldn't finish it the story was so very bad. It was like someone's first attempt at writing. It's beyond me why anyone would like it.

    "Didn't see the end coming"

    Great story. Best to read this one after you've read the previous in the series. It wraps up a lot of unanswered questions. I didn't see the end coming, but it made sense, it just worked.

    "Wow"

    Great background into the history of Will, Amanda, and Evelyn (Faiths mother). Explains so much. I think this is my favorite in the series so far!

    "This Book is Essential for Any Will Trent Fan"

    This book ties together Will's past and present in a tale that keeps you guessing essentially to the end. One of Ms. Gardner's finest books in this series, it brings back the glass ceiling experienced by female cops in the 70s, and finally shows much of why Will Trent is the enigma that he is.

    This book is best if read in order of the series, but it is good even without doing so.

    "My opinion"

    It was a good story but very confusing since I listened to over a matter of weeks. It was very confusing with the going back and forth but it all came together the last couple of chapters.

    "The Past and the Present"

    Very well told story weaving together the the past and present. Kept me intrigued and on the edge of my seat to see these two adjacent stories blend together to provide a story about Will Trent's early history resulting in who he is today.

    Story
    "Eeh...it was okay."

    Maybe it was because I didn't relate to Amanda or Evelyn all that well, but I found their story of discrimination tedious and slowly told. Love Will Trent and Sarah though.
