If you are a follower of Karin Slaughter’s series of crime novels, then you will be as delighted as I was with this latest offering. This book sees Will Trent doing what he does best, working undercover, and trying to infiltrate into the very centre of a particularly nasty criminal underworld. However, Will is about to find that criminality comes closer to home when his girl friend, Sara Linton finds that she is unwillingly drawn into close contact with her old adversary Lena Adams, and we all know the mayhem that has caused in the past.
The writing is as always exemplary, the pace of the plot never falters and the emotional commitment to her characters shines through with every word. As soon as I open the first page of a Karin Slaughter novel, I know that I am in for a roller-coaster of a ride, and as emotions run high, the feeling of terror never really goes away.
I'm really envious of people who haven’t yet discovered the allure of these books – they really are that good – but please start at the beginning and read the whole series in order - I promise you, it won’t be time wasted.
My thanks to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group Bantam Dell for the opportunity to review this book
