Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating a crime involving a dead ex-cop.
His girlfriend, medical examiner Sara Linton, is working with him. She discovers that the extensive blood loss does not belong to the victim.
Will is already in hot water, because the site where they found the victim belongs to the city’s most popular citizen, a wealthy, powerful and politically connected athlete protected by a bevy of expensive attorneys. And Will tried to get him on a rape conviction, but he managed to get off.
They also have to find the other victim who lost so much blood at the scene, and she has somehow vanished.
Will’s troubled past links him to the case, and the consequences will rip into everyone around him. Even the suspect he’s searching for.
This was a good crime read. Fast paced. Lots of action.
I don’t think I’ve read Karin Slaughter’s novels before, but now I will look for more of them. She is a very popular crime writer and knows her stuff.
