Description

Instant New York Times Bestseller!

New York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter brings back Will Trent and Sara Linton in this superb and timely thriller full of devious twists, disturbing secrets, and shocking surprises you won’t see coming

A mysterious kidnapping

On a hot summer night, a scientist from the Centers for Disease Control is grabbed by unknown assailants in a shopping center parking lot. The authorities are desperate to save the doctor who’s been vanished into thin air.

A devastating explosion

One month later, the serenity of a sunny Sunday afternoon is shattered by the boom of a ground-shaking blast—followed by another seconds later. One of Atlanta’s busiest and most important neighborhoods has been bombed—the location of Emory University, two major hospitals, the FBI headquarters, and the CDC.

A diabolical enemy

Medical examiner Sara Linton and her partner Will Trent, an investigator with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, rush to the scene—and into the heart of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to destroy thousands of innocent lives. When the assailants abduct Sara, Will goes undercover to save her and prevent a massacre—putting his own life on the line for the woman and the country he loves.

    I have literally read every book by Karin slaughter, and this one did not disappoint! The writing style was different, yes... but, I actually liked the way she wrote different points of view from each of the characters! Good job k.s! Can’t wait for the next Sara and will story!

    As an avid fan, this book was disappointment and a disservice to the readers. The author cared more about delivering a message than writing a good story about the characters we have come to love. Not subtle and sloppy. Will deserved better and so did the readers.

    The story is not well done. Very disappointing effort compared to previous books. The story did not make sense, as the kidnapping was not believable.

    Best of all! Combination of Linton and Trent storylines had me turning pages faster than ever. As a surgeon I found the medical details to be spot on. Just terrific -ran the gamut of emotions from fear to thrill to sadness to longing to relief to pure joy.

    Not her usual writing style. She rehashes parts of the story in different characters points of view, so you reread parts you already know about. Not a fan of this. Good book though. Love these characters.

    I always look forward to all her books and preorder them when possible but this was a big disappointment. I especially did not like how the book would go backwards telling the story through a different character. It is a waste to read the same thing again and again. There were a lot of things I disliked about the book but it was mainly just boring and a waste of money.

    At the risk of sounding like every other positive book review, read this one. I read a lot and was in a bit of a slump. I felt like everything I have read lately was more of the same. This one definitely broke my streak. I love the Will Trent series and had been looking forward to it. It didn’t disappoint. Fast moving, well thought out, great detail and the emotion I’ve come to expect from these characters.
  • Yeessss!
