My second Karin Slaughter book. I'm not reading her novels in any specific order and I loved this story. Characters were believeable and the plot was well thought out. Not as graphic as 'Pretty Girls' but still a great book.

Karin Slaughter really does get better and better with each book. Her books are really gritty--not for the faint of heart. But they are so twisty, it's nearly impossible to set them down. I can't wait to pick up the next one in the series.

The charactors are believable, the story is tough, once in it I couldn't not finish it. This is the first book of hers I read and I now have read all I can get my hands on. You know what they put on to wear that day, you know how they felt, what they thought and what they went thru that day. I felt as if I was reading several diaries in one with a story I had to know the outcome.

In one of the best areas in Atlanta a young girl is brutally killed. Detective Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has to try to solve this case. Very interesting read with a lot of twists and turns.

Not a bad 'whodunit', with some interesting and unexpected twists. I really like the character Will Trent, who also appears in 'Triptych'.
