Atlanta, Georgia. Present day. A young woman is brutally attacked and left for dead. The police investigate but the trail goes cold. Until a chance assignment takes GBI investigator Will Trent to the state penitentiary, and to a prisoner who says he recognizes the MO. The attack looks identical to the one he was accused of eight years earlier. The prisoner’s always insisted that he was innocent, and now he’s sure he has proof. The killer is still out there.

As Will digs into both crimes it becomes clear that he must solve the original case in order to reach the truth. Yet nearly a decade has passed—time for memories to fade, witnesses to vanish, evidence to disappear. And now he needs medical examiner Sara Linton to help him hunt down a ruthless murderer. But when the past and present collide, everything Will values is at stake …

Reviews

“Another riveting entry in the Will Trent series.”

“Slaughter delivers an unflinching, deeply empathetic exploration of the stigma surrounding rape and the enduring trauma suffered by its survivors.”

“The emotionally sophisticated characters work through the brutality of their jobs in this dynamic psychological thriller and police procedural that will please readers of Slaughter’s ‘Grant County’ series.”

“Karin Slaughter was twenty years ahead of our true-crime obsession. Karin Slaughter is the bestselling author of twenty novels, all of which center on the violence that is mostly committed against women. Now two decades into her storied career, Slaughter…[watches] women begin to embrace their desire to read and learn more about these crimes.”

“This one will still rattle you down to your bones.”

“If you want to be chilled to the bone, pick up Slaughter’s latest, The Silent Wife…it’s absolutely mesmerizing.”
