New York Times bestseller Karin Slaughter brings back her two most fascinating and complex characters-medical examiner Sara Linton and her ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver-in a heart-pounding tale of faith, doubt, and murder. The victim was buried alive in the Georgia woods-then killed in a horrifying fashion. When Sara Linton and Jeffrey Tolliver stumble upon the body, both become consumed with finding out who killed the pretty young woman. For them, a harrowing journey begins, one that will test their own turbulent relationship and draw dozens of life into the case. For as Jeffrey and Sara move further down a trail of shocking surprises and hidden passions, neither is prepared for the most stunning discovery of all: the identity of a killer who is more evil and dangerous than anyone could have guessed.

Professional reviews

"Equal parts family drama and crime thriller, this satisfying story is well served by Clarinda Ross's measured approach. While a faster and more intense reading would have delivered more impact, as well as a lower CD count, the slower pace allows the listener to fully absorb the many conversations among the plethora of characters. Ross's narration also demonstrates skillful versatility. She's just as adept with the catty bickering between Dr. Sara Linton and her parents as she is with the crime-fighting efforts of Jeffrey Tolliver, police chief, who is Sara's boyfriend. While the reading is overall on the relaxed side, Ross delivers intensity and a faster pace when it's required. J.P.M. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
