My Thoughts:

Confession: While I’ve read some other Karin Slaughter stand-alones, I’ve only read the first Will Trent book prior to this one. I think it was enough to make this book completely engrossing, but if I were following along with the entire series, I know I’d be that much more riveted. It’s that good!

A doctor has been kidnapped. In fact, it’s a scientist from the Centers for Disease Control. Where is the doctor?

A month later, there’s a devastating explosion with another shortly thereafter.  A bombing happens in one of Atlanta’s most influential neighborhoods.  But why?

Sara Linton and Will Trent flee to the scene to go to work, and of course they begin to uncover what’s really going on. Sara ends up kidnapped and Will will risk it all to save her.

I followed the synopsis to avoid spoilers, so I’ll leave you with this. This series and this book are must-reads. Karin Slaughter is a natural storyteller. You will be engrossed.  You will be disturbed. You will lose sleep. This book lived up to my every expectation and then some. I’m scrambling trying to figure out when I can fit in the rest of the Will Trent books!

I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
