The latest novel in the Will Trent series from number one best-selling author Karin Slaughter.
A body is discovered in an empty Atlanta warehouse. It's the body of an ex-cop, and from the moment Special Agent Will Trent walks in he knows this could be the most devastating case of his career. Bloody footprints leading away from the scene reveal that another victim - a woman - has left the scene and vanished into thin air. And, worst of all, the warehouse belongs to the city's biggest, most politically connected, most high-profile athlete - a local hero protected by the world's most expensive lawyers. A local hero Will has spent the last six months investigating on a brutal rape charge.
But for Will - and for Dr. Sara Linton, the GBI's newest medical examiner - the case is about to get even worse. Because an unexpected discovery at the scene reveals a personal link to Will's troubled past.
The consequences will wreak havoc on his life and the lives of those he loves, those he works with, and those he pursues. But Sara's scene-of-the-crime diagnosis is that they have only a few hours to find the missing woman before she bleeds out....

The narrator's character voices were poorly delivered and not true to the characters. I have read a number of books in this series and enjoyed them all. I had to force myself to continue listening to the end. The narration turned it into a comedy. Disappointing. I won't be buying another with the same narrator.
This is the first book
From this author I have read/listened to. I loved it!! Great twist and turns that weren't predictable. I binged listened to it in 3 days as it was so good. Favorite book of 2016/17.
One you just can't put down. Don't normally write reviews but always read them so decided it was time. Love the continuing development of the characters. Liked the anti hero Will's x-wife.
Lived up to expectations! couldnt put it down. Already looking forward to the next one.
What is happening to Will Trent and all the other characters in this book? If I had this group of ill fitting detective's in my squad I wouldn't bother trying to solve crimes, I would just sign everyone in to the local mental facility for a check up. Whinny, moaning, complaining, are they trying to solve a murder or wallow in their despair, this is suppose to be a work of fiction, not real life.
Yes but not this character nor narrator
As for the narrator, she reads well but her voices especially the male again come over weak, reflecting the rest of the book.
Yes return the book
Storytelling from different perspectives keeps the book engaging.
The relationship between Will, Sara and the person from Will's past
I have read many of the Will Trent books, but the audible format really brought this story to life and I understood the relationships between the characters as I never had in print. Fantastic
I love all Karen Slaughters full length books. Brilliantly read, Can't wait for the next one 🤗🤗🤗
Very good narration.
Have read all the books in this series and love the characters especially Will! This book really kept the reader guessing right to the end and had lots of twists and turns along the way.
Any scene with Will and Sarah. They make a great couple. Love how vulnerable Will is and how Sarah has helped him overcome his demons.
Was very impatient to finish.
To fluffy in places with inter relationship stuff going on and on and on and so much introspection.
However, the story line is sound and the perform and ok. Except for the German accent which is more Arnold Schwarzenegger then rich lawyer.
"Another great book from Karen Slaughter"
I find her characters very believable and her story lines so good. Looking forward to her next book already!
Thoroughly gripping and intense from beginning to end but definitely not for the faint -hearted.
Karin Slaughter has kept this Grant County series going for a long time, and usually that can begin to become 'samey'; but this instalment was great.
Will is trying to get on with his life and seems to be close to perfection with Sara, but his troubled wife Angie is forever on the outskirts ruining any chance of happiness the couple could hope for. A shady cop and a battered wife have a connection closer to Angie than anyone would believe. You'll enjoy it.
