About this audiobook

With over 13 million copies of her books sold in twenty-two countries, #1 internationally bestselling author Karin Slaughter delivers "crime fiction at its finest." Now she returns to Grant county, Georgia where the lightning-fast plot, vivid forensic detail, and heart-stopping suspense will thrust readers into the darkest corners of their own imaginations-and push Slaughter to the top of the national bestseller lists.

Sara Linton-resident medical examiner/pediatrician in Grant County, Georgia-has plenty of hardship to deal with, including defending herself in a heartbreaking malpractice suit. So when her husband, Police chief Jeffery Tolliver, learns that his friend and coworker detective Lena Adams has been arrested for murder and needs Sara's help, she is not sure she can handle the pressure of it all. But soon Sara an Jeffery are sitting through evidence, peeling back the layers of a mystery that grows darker by the day-until an intricate web of betrayal and vengeance begins to unravel. And suddenly the lives of Sara, Lena, and Jeffery are hanging by the slenderest of threads.

    This is another good intense book in the Grant County Series, and I like the way this one fully involved Sara, Lena and Jeffrey - although the bulk of the book didn't actually take place in Grant County. There were so many positives to this book, but I felt it lost at least half a star in the final few paragraphs as I don't think what happened in those paragraphs was needed or even fitted with the book (no spoilers!). If this had happenec earlier in the book I could have understood it and it would have fit better but I felt in the way it was done it detracted from a good story. Despite this if you have not read this series I would recommend them.

    Series note: The final book in the Grant County series also published as Beyond Reach.

    Karin Slaughter's incredible characterization and spellbinding storytelling abilities are proven once again when Sara and Jeffrey get caught up in another of Lena's messes. Slaughter is one of the only authors who manages to grip the reader for over 500 pages despite the fact that her characters are some of the most unlikable people ever to grace the pages of a book.

    There are moments in this story when I couldn't care less if certain characters lived or died, and others in which my heart sped up and even skipped a beat. The ending is simply heart-wrenching, and it is difficult to see how Slaughter will make up for it even though I'm sure she will ultimately succeed.

    It will be interesting to see where Slaughter takes her characters from here.

    Read this out of series - tough to take this ending, will need to go back and start for the beginning.

    I don't know why I am always surprised when an author who writes one book a year with the same theme and the work is never unique. Somewhat entertaining.

    This is no simple case of murder and it looks like Detective Lena Adams is the only suspect. But what is really going on in Reece? Lena's boss, Jeffrey Tolliver police chief of Heartsdale and his wife Dr Sara Linton, travel to Reece to try to aid Lena.

    This book was a roller coaster ride from beginning to end. Speaking of ends this one was just plain shocking. I was so involved in the characters from reading the entire series that I was terribly saddened and disappointed at the end.

    Karin Slaughter is the absolute best crime/mystery writer I have come across in this day and age. Her novels will simply astound you with their heart-racing moments and intrigue. Every time I pick one of her novels up I cannot stop reading until I'm done and I still find myself begging for more. She's a writer with no fear! She wields her instruments like a knife ready to dig in deep and take you by surprise at every turn!
