Karin Slaughter does it once again. I bought this book right after I read her book Pretty Girls and for some reason continued to put off reading it. I think I was nervous that I was going to compare them and Pretty Girls was/is one of my favorite thrillers. So with that being said, I loved this book. I loved that Karin (yes, we are on first name basis), dives right in with details and although some are graphic, I absolutely feel that it truly makes the story. She doesn’t cut corners and I love that about her writing. I enjoyed the main character Will Trent. He extremely relatable and I enjoy his awkwardness. This is the first book in the Will Trent series and I have already bought the second book to start reading. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. It’s definitely a great book for the first in the series.
From Atlanta’s wealthiest suburbs to its stark inner-city housing projects, a killer has crossed the boundaries of wealth and race. And the people who are chasing him must cross those boundaries, too. Among them is Michael Ormewood, a veteran detective whose marriage is hanging by a thread—and whose arrogance and explosive temper are threatening his career. And Angie Polaski, a beautiful vice cop who was once Michael’ s lover before she became his enemy. But unbeknownst to both of them, another player has entered the game: a loser ex-con who has stumbled upon the killer’s trail in the most coincidental of ways—and who may be the key to breaking the case wide open.
