A small Georgia town erupts in panic when a young college professor is found brutally mutilated in the local diner. But it's only when town pediatrician and coroner Sara Linton does the autopsy that the full extent of the killer's twisted work becomes clear.
Sara's ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, leads the investigation - a trail of terror that grows increasingly macabre when another local woman is found crucified a few days later. But he's got more than a sadistic serial killer on his hands, for the county's sole female detective, Lena Adams - the first victim's sister - want to serve her own justice.
But it is Sara who holds the key to finding the killer. A secret from her past could unmask the brilliantly malevolent psychopath.... or mean her death.

Great story- raw and amazing characters
Crisp, good tempo
I started with Copland... Hated it and loved it simultaneously! The sexism and racism was weaved through the story in Ms. Slaughter's way, gave a glimpse of the past in a grisly reality. Read it twice before starting the rest of her books. This one did not disappoint!
One thing to note, chapter 15 is a repeat of the previous chapter. A sound edit mistake. Not a huge deal... Just needs a tweak. Otherwise it was perfect for me.
Sadly, a bit of a letdown
I thought the plot was a little cookie cutter, shallow and lacked anything that really made it stand out as unique.
felt very Nora Roberts, I love her stuff but it is predictable, and follows a very specific formula.
I chose this one after reading Pretty Girls by the same author, which was an amazing book. I think this being one of the author's early works is just not quite up to par with where her later works are. I may continue with this series based on how good Pretty Girls was, but this book fell flat for me. The narrator was awesome, she is really enjoyable.
