Publisher's Summary

From the number one best-selling author comes a gripping new crime thriller featuring Will Trent and Sara Linton.

It begins with an abduction. The routine of a family shopping trip is shattered when Michelle Spivey is snatched as she leaves the mall with her young daughter. The police search for her, her partner pleads for her release, but in the end...they find nothing. It’s as if she disappeared into thin air. 

A month later, on a sleepy Sunday afternoon, medical examiner Sara Linton is at lunch with her boyfriend Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. But the serenity of the summer’s day is broken by the wail of sirens.

Sara and Will are trained to help in an emergency. Their jobs - their vocations - mean that they run towards a crisis, not away from it. But on this one terrible day that instinct betrays them both. 

Within hours the situation has spiralled out of control; Sara is taken prisoner; Will is forced undercover. And the fallout will lead them into the Appalachian mountains, to the terrible truth about what really happened to Michelle, and to a remote compound where a radical group has murder in mind....

More excellence from Karin Slaughter!

Loved the book! An excellent continuation of Will and Sara's story. BUT the narration was poor. They should have had Kathleen Early continue with the series. This narrator mispronounced so many words throughout the book it was embarrassing! Words that any reader should/would know well.

Further or father

Yet again another narrator who doesn't understand the English language. Whoever listens to the narration prior to publication should have picked up on this unless he or she also has an inadequate knowledge of English. If I was looking further into something I would not need my father to help. Father down the road implies that her dad is down the road.

So derivative

My least favourite Slaughter book. More of a romance novel than her usual crime novels. Still enjoyable but just not up to her usual standards.
