Someone had spent time with her – someone well-practised in the art of pain....
Three and a half years ago, former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton moved to Atlanta, hoping to leave her tragic past behind her. Now working as a doctor in Atlanta’s Grady Hospital, she is starting to piece her life together. But when a severely wounded young woman is brought in to the emergency room, she finds herself drawn back into a world of violence and terror.
The woman has been hit by a car but, naked and brutalised, it’s clear that she has been the prey of a twisted mind. When Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Investigation Team returns to the scene of the accident, he stumbles on a torture chamber buried deep beneath the earth. And this hidden house of horror reveals a ghastly truth: Sara’s patient is just the first victim of a sick, sadistic killer.
Wrestling the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner Faith Mitchell find themselves at the centre of a grisly murder hunt. And Sara, Will, and Faith - each with their own wounds and their own secrets - are the only thing that stands between a madman and his next crime.

It is up there with the best of them
Maybe not "on the edge of my seat" but I definitely cared about what would happen next. The story had enough mystery to have me hooked.
It is hard to choose a favorite but one that stands out as well written was one of the scenes between Sara Linton and Will Trent in Sara's living room. The under-current of sexual tension combined with their awkwardness rang with authenticity.
The slow reveal of the kidnapper's character combined with not understanding his motivation makes him memorable
As with all Karin Slaughter novels there are enough unexpected turns to keep the reader engaged without becoming frustrating or losing credibility.
