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 Amanda's motivation until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before, when his father was imprisoned for murder, this was Will's home. It appears that the case that launched Amanda's career forty years ago has suddenly come back to life-and it involves the long-held mystery of Will's birth and parentage. Now these two dauntless investigators will each need to face down demons from the past if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed.

"Will Trent's sordid family history and the birth of the career of Amanda Wagner, Trent's boss at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, will engage Slaughter fans in a story that goes back to 1975. The horrific case Wagner cut her teeth on is also part of Trent's back story, so narrator Kathleen Early must transition clearly between the earlier police investigation and the present. Early's composed delivery sets in stark relief the horrors inflicted upon the 1975 victims, who were "pinned down like a specimen in a science project." The rampant and abusive sexism of the Atlanta Police Department is also graphically depicted. Early's best performance is her vocal time travel from the youthful, determined Amanda to the gruff GBI agent she becomes, a narrating feat that also applies to her circle of stalwart sisters. Tension is fine tuned, and characters are subtly shaded in, with Southern accents surprisingly sparse. D.P.D. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
