Author: Karin Slaughter
Pages: 400
Where I got it: I won it free in a Goodreads contest [check right sidebar for a link to Goodreads]
Release Date [tentative] : June 22, 2010
First Lines: Allison Spooner wanted to leave town for the holiday, but there was nowhere to go. There was no reason to stay here, either, but at least it was cheaper.
Favortie Character: Will Trent
Officer Lena Adams might finally be in over her head.
When she and a fellow detective arrive on scene at the sight where a college student’s body was discovered, it seems like a simple suicide. Yet it’s soon discovered that there’s a murderer in town-and this may not be the last time they strike…
Special Agent Will Trent is brought out to investigate the police department while the case is going on. Dr. Sara Linton, who blames Lena for her husband’s death, wants revenge and closure.
Will they ever catch this killer?

I really wasn’t sure how I was going to like this book. I didn’t even know much about it when I won it.
Thankfully, I was greatly surprised in how much I loved it! Even though it’s part of a series of books that I’ve never read or heard of before I was able to figure out the character’s pasts and how they felt about one another. The plot line was amazing..There was never a dull moment. One moment you’re at the scene of the crime, the next in someone’s kitchen, yet both are equally interesting.
I’d recommend this book to anyone who’s a huge fan of murder mysteries, crime novels, and anyone who’s a fan of Karin Slaughter. This book gets 5/5 stars from me.
