    Description

    Saturday night dates at the skating rink have been a tradition in the small southern town of Heartsdale for as long as anyone can remember; but when a teenage quarrel explodes into a deadly shoot-out, Sara Linton, the town's pediatrician and medical examiner, finds herself entangled in a terrible tragedy.

    What seemed at first to be a horrific individual catastrophe proves to have wider implications. The autopsy reveals evidence of long-term abuse, of ritualistic self-mutilation, but when Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver start to investigate, they are frustrated at every turn.

    The children surrounding the victim close ranks. The families turn their backs. Then a young girl is abducted, and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to an even more brutal crime, one far more shocking than anyone could have imagined. Meanwhile, detective Lena Adams, still recovering from her sister's death and her own brutal attack, finds herself drawn to a young man who might hold the answers. But unless Lena, Sara, and Jeffrey can uncover the deadly secrets the children hide, it's going to happen again.

    Commentaires

    "The undertone of violence is pervasive, even at quiet moments...amplifying Slaughter's equation of intimacy with menace and placing her squarely in the ranks of Cornwell and Reichs" (Publishers Weekly)
    "With the same graphic detail found in her first novel and in those by Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs, Slaughter has again written a fast-paced thriller for those not faint of heart." (Library Journal)
    "This is just the ticket for readers who like their crime fiction on the dark side." (Booklist)

    well done

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes

    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend all of Karin's books. They are very exciting and I love the feeling of not wanting to put a book down because you want to know what happens next. That doesn't happen very often.

    CAUTION!

    While this author's imagination is a nice change from "the killer did unimaginable things" and leaving it at that, the topic to this particular book (child rape/exploitation/porn), its treatment, and the unresolved finale was too much for me. A topic such as this need closure, not possible continued revisitation. And the villan seems to "leap tall buildings in a single bound." The author lost one reader w/ this one and its handling.

    Old Timer

    This book set a record for loosing and confusing me; about three minutes. Whether the remainder of the book rehabilitates its horrid opening, I can not comment. I will leave that to others.

    disappointing

    Heroines should never be wimpy,emotional on the job or think it alright to become emotionally vulnerable to a teenage boy. My heroines need grit and substance. I could not even finish the book as I was gagging on the interaction between a grown, supposedly professional woman of the law and a sly troubled child!! Sorry Karin Slaughter but I shall not be reading any of your books again for awhile.

    My Ears.....

    I couldnt listen more than a few minutes. Love Karen Slaughter stories, but the narrator really ruined it for me. I'm sure she's a wonderful narrator, but I'm picky.

    Exciting and sad story

    Loved the story but the music sound effects were in a word - weird. The narrative was a bit choppy but the story keeps you engaged.

    Kisscut review

    I love Karin Slaughter, and loved this book, but the quality was awful. There was a very,very loud static at times, to the point where I missed parts of the book. Very disappointed in the quality as this is something I have purchased, and it was difficult to hear at times.

    Too dark

    As a fan of Karin, this story was just to dark and twisted for my tastes.

    Captured at the first sentence

    Very well written, educational, but sad and true. I cried, I stopped listening, but had to know who, what, when and how. I’m glad I listened, but hated to know this story. All I can say now is...WOW😢

    an A-rated thriller

    fast moving thriller with an unconventional plot - devastatingly honest about what people are capable of.

    Not a read for the sensitive soul because it involves heavy child abuse and some quite illustrate depictation of it.
