For Karin Slaughter fans, this book provides the "backstory" for critical recurring characters, including revelation of the links that are implied in previous books, but not defined. This particular tale, bouncing back and forth from past to present, does a wonderful job of more fully developing the players we thought we knew. And, of course, the reader also is hooked into following the search, through time, for a heinous killer. Narration is excellent. I like to finish the "listening" and, in talking about the book to others, can't remember whether it was one I read or enjoyed on Audible! This book does not disappoint.

I think that I've read or listened to most of Slaughter's books, and this one has to be one of the most bone-chilling.
I had thought she was softening in her writing, as I hadn't read anything this disturbing since KissCut. (one of the original series that this series spun off from)
I am enjoying the progression of Will's story, and hints that Sara's future in the books is assured.
I have to admit, after being thrown Amanda in her iron/steel character, it was really hard to reconcile hearing her as a young, uncertain rookie.
I had dropped this series for a while, and now I'm glad that I picked it back up again. I will be keeping an eye out for the next one.
