'One of the boldest thriller writers working today' TESS GERRITSEN'Her characters, plot, and pacing are unrivalled' MICHAEL CONNELLYThe sixth book in Karin Slaughter's #1 bestselling GRANT COUNTY series. _________________________________________Lena Adams has spent her life struggling to forget her childhood in Reece, the small town which nearly destroyed her.
She's made a new life for herself as a police detective in Heartsdale, a hundred miles away - but nothing could prepare her for the violence which explodes when she is forced to return.
A vicious murder leaves a young woman incinerated beyond recognition. And Lena is the only suspect. When Heartsdale police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, Lena's boss, receives word that his detective has been arrested, he has no choice but to go to Lena's aid - taking with him his wife, medical examiner Sara Linton.
But soon after their arrival, a second victim is found.
The town closes ranks. And both Jeffrey and Sara find themselves entangled in a horrifying underground world of bigotry and rage - a violent world which shocks even them.
But can they discover the truth before the killer strikes again?_________________________________________Crime and thriller masters know there's nothing better than a little Slaughter:'I'd follow her anywhere' GILLIAN FLYNN'Passion, intensity, and humanity' LEE CHILD 'A writer of extraordinary talents' KATHY REICHS 'Fiction doesn't get any better than this' JEFFERY DEAVER 'A great writer at the peak of her powers' PETER JAMES 'Raw, powerful and utterly gripping' KATHRYN STOCKETT 'With heart and skill Karin Slaughter keeps you hooked from the first page until the last' CAMILLA LACKBERG 'Amongst the world's greatest and finest crime writers' YRSA SIGURDARDOTTIR
