Publisher's Summary

Bill Black is a scary guy: a tall ex-con who rides to work on a Harley, and trails an air of violence wherever he goes. In Macon, Georgia, Bill has caught the eye of a wiry little drug dealer and his cunning girlfriend. They think Bill might be a useful ally. They don’t know that Bill is a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent named Will Trent. Or that he is fighting his own demons, undercover and cut off from the support of Sara Linton - the woman he loves, who he dares not tell he is putting himself at such risk.
Sara herself has come to Macon because of a cop shooting: Her stepson Jared has been gunned down in his home. Sara holds Lena, Jared’s wife, responsible: The female detective has been a magnet for trouble all her life, and it’s not the first time someone Sara loved got caught in the crossfire. Furious, Sara gets involved in the same case that Will is working without even knowing it, and soon danger is swirling around both of them.
In a novel of fierce intensity, shifting allegiances, and shocking twists, two investigations collide around a conspiracy on both sides of the law. Karin Slaughter’s latest is both an electrifying thriller and a piercing study of human nature: What happens when good people face the unseen evils in their lives?

Will Trent is back!

Another great listen by Karin Slaughter. Will and Faith are integral to the story but other characters' (from earlier books) points of view are examined in depth, as well. Totally engaging performance and kept me guessing (which is hard to do). No spoilers here but it was terrific to see (that is, hear) Sara and Will progress in their relationship. Would definitely recommend.

Stellar mystery, series!

This is my second book by Slaughter and I think I've found an author to tide me over until the next Jo Nesbo release. The series focuses around Georgia Agent Will Trent, but what sets the series apart is Slaughter's remarkable genius of mystery around characters most of us can identify with.

There are surprises and twists, but subtle enough to keep you riveted to the tale. The deviant criminal activity against women and children is shocking and graphic, but thankfully we are spared having to live through the violence. But anyone who doubts such depravity is realistic hasn't kept up with the news. So the crimes are dark and horrible, but there's always a silver lining in Slaughter's work. It's found in the wonderful characters she creates whose lives share the same happiness and pain most of us enjoy.

Kathleen Early once again is masterful. She handled the diversity of genders, ages, accents and emotions as well anyone I've heard,

Now I'm on my third (the first in the Will Trent series) and it is as good as the first two I've purchased.

Thank you Karin Slaughter, Kathleen Early and Audible!
