Goodreads synopsis: When Special Agent Will Trent arrives in Grant County, he finds a police department determined to protect its own and far too many unanswered questions about a prisoner’s death. He doesn’t understand why Officer Lena Adams is hiding secrets from him. He doesn’t understand her role in the death of Grant County’s popular police chief. He doesn’t understand why that man’s widow, Dr. Sara Linton, needs him now more than ever to help her crack this case.
While the police force investigates the murder of a young woman pulled from a frigid lake, Trent investigates the police force, putting pressure on Adams just when she’s already about to crack. Caught between two complicated and determined women, trying to understand Linton’s passionate distrust of Adams, the facts surrounding Chief Tolliver’s death, and the complexities of this insular town, Trent will unleash a case filled with explosive secrets–and encounter a thin blue line that could be murderous if crossed.
Perfection. Utterly, perfection. Not one book in the Will Trent series has received under five star rating so far. Overall Karin Slaughter is a hell of a good writer, who captivates me from the first to the last word. She grips my heart, stomps on it, shoves it back in my chest and then does it all again. I’m in love. Just so damn in love with Will but also Sara. And every time I finish one of her books I feel empty and mentally run-down. Still I’m not able to stop. She is a drug I cannot quit.
Okay, how come I never talk about her or her book if she is so good, you may ask?! I’ve had the blog for over two years now and still there is only one review on one of her books. Well the answer is pretty simple. I save her books. I’m so afraid that it will end and I will not have anything more by her to read. I literary saves her books for that perfect time. Not long ago I found out that I need to stop doing that because I have a whole list with books I’m saving and have been doing that for years. I don’t want to die and not have read the whole Will Trent series and all the other books I wish to read.
Anyway, got a little side-tracked. This story takes us back to Grant County where Sara is originally from. We get to meet some of the other characters from the Grant County series. I have read two (I think) books in that series and first planned to read more. But accidentally read a huge spoiler in one of the earlier books in the Will Trent series that have made me not wanting to read the rest in Grant County. It was nice though to receive some more details regarding that spoiler and some closure. I’m still not interested so far in reading the Grant County series. But probably will one day in the future.
The plot is believable with devious and greedy people who still does everything in their power to save what they hold most dear. A sad but still captivating story with the most suspenseful energy.
