Review:

"Slaughter's latest brings to light heretofore-unknown aspects of the lives of Will Trent — an agent at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation — and his boss, deputy director Amanda Wagner. When a young college student goes missing, the circumstances surrounding the disappearance bring back memories of the first case Wagner worked as a young detective in 1975. What is the connection between the two cases and why has Wagner locked Trent out of the investigation? The answers exist, and Kathleen Early does an excellent job of revealing them as she narrates this complex thriller. Early handles the book's numerous plot twists and shifts in time, pacing, and point of view with aplomb, delivering a compelling and enjoyable listening experience. Confronted with a large cast of characters, Early manages to give each character a distinct voice without falling into caricature or cliché. She is especially effective in her reading of sections of the book set in the 1970s in which Amanda and her partner fight the prejudice of their peers in order to be taken seriously as detectives.

Synopsis:

Karin Slaughters new novel is an epic tale of love, loyalty, and murder that encompasses forty years, two chillingly similar murder cases, and a good mans deepest secrets.

Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amandas motivation until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before— when Wills father was imprisoned for murder—this was his home. . . .

Flash back nearly forty years. In the summer Will Trent was born, Amanda Wagner is going to college, making Sunday dinners for her father, taking her first steps in the boys club that is the Atlanta Police Department. One of her first cases is to investigate a brutal crime in one of the citys worst neighborhoods. Amanda and her partner, Evelyn, are the only ones who seem to care if an arrest is ever made.
