The plot is full of twists and turns, a mystery you can't help but try and solve, and of course a little romance thrown in just to up the ante a little.
The characters are complicated but endearing. There's tough grandmothers, innocent babies, flawed law-enforcement officers, and violent gang members.
Overall this is an action-packed page turner you'll have trouble putting down.
Will Trent, Faith's old partner in the GBI, is handling the investigation; there is a bit of a conflict of interest at work here: Amanda Wagner, the deputy director and his boss, had been the BFF [before the term existed] of Evelyn Mitchell, Faith's mother, a 63-year-old widow and a cop for nearly forty years, who had been implicated in a sting operation that had been headed by Will, to weed out dirty cops, part of the upshot of which was her forced retirement.
Will has a complex relationship with Sara Linton, formerly a county coroner and now a pediatric attending physician in the emergency department of a local Atlanta hospital. Widow of the county's former police chief, at 5'11', with red hair, Sara is a striking woman.Read more ›
I've said it before in my reviews that I've never liked Sara Linton, but Slaughter takes her character through some major development in this book, as she does Will Trent. Giving them both a much needed update in their current situations and taking them forward in a direction that I amazingly am very satisfied with. An all around top-notch thriller with great character development for the series as a whole.
