Life is running smoothly for agent Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation as he eases into a new relationship with Dr. Sara Linton, until the abduction of 19-year-old college student Ashleigh Snyder. When his GBI mentor and boss, Deputy Director Amanda Wagner, specifically tells him to stay away from the case, Will knows something is wrong. Flashback to 1975, when Amanda is a rookie in the Atlanta Police Department, along with Evelyn Mitchell, who later becomes the mother of Faith, Will's GBI partner. The APD at that time is rife with racism and sexism, but Amanda and Evelyn refuse to abandon the case of several missing prostitutes, despite warnings from other (male) detectives to back off.--Publishers Weekly.

This has to be my favorite of all the author's books (intense and compelling).

This would have to be one of the most unenjoyable reads I have ever made

Could not recommend it to anyone

Undone is her best book, But this book contains her best writing. There are characters in this book that I definitely wish to see more of.

Not badly written but confusing to keep track of all the characters as the story ping-ponged from current to past time frames. Too gruesome.

This is my 3rd book from this writer. I really like the Will Trent series and will read more. This was a very good book which finally told you about Will Trent's parents and the role his boss played in his earlier life ... hard to read as a woman due to the torture the female victims endured. However, very well written book. If you like her books, I recommend it.

I read this book then passed it on to my teen daughter who is a big fan of slaughter. I enjoyed this book although it frightened me at some parts. It was incredibly well written, I'm a fan of the Will Trent series and can't wait to read more.

OK, think of the worst thing that could be done to women. Then realize that this author can outdo you. Then ask yourself if you want to read that?

I love the Will Trent series, and this book was a little hard due to subject, but well worth it. I got passed the part of no return pretty quick. Great writing

Good work by Slaughter. She's one of my favorites, if you like her style- you will like this one. Earlier books a tad bit more exciting.
