Anything else but mysteries and fantasies. Because I don’t like them, it takes me a lot to read and I don’t feel engaged in them. But sometimes I do read non-fiction especially historic non-fiction but on argument that I want to know more about (see the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki or everything that concern Japan. I’m not saying that I like everything I read about Japan but at least I try).
Investigating the killing of a prisoner during a riot inside a state penitentiary, GBI investigator Will Trent is confronted with disturbing information. One of the inmates claims that he is innocent of a brutal attack for which he has always been the prime suspect. The man insists that he was framed by a corrupt law enforcement team led by Jeffrey Tolliver and that the real culprit is still out there—a serial killer who has systematically been preying on women across the state for years. If Will reopens the investigation and implicates the dead police officer with a hero’s reputation of wrongdoing, the opportunistic convict is willing to provide the information GBI needs about the riot murder.
Only days ago, another young woman was viciously murdered in a state park in northern Georgia. Is it a fluke, or could there be a serial killer on the loose?
As Will Trent digs into both crimes it becomes clear that he must solve the cold case in order to find the answer. Yet nearly a decade has passed—time for memories to fade, witnesses to vanish, evidence to disappear, and lies to become truth. But Will can’t crack either mystery without the help of the one person he doesn’t want involved: his girlfriend and Jeffrey Tolliver’s widow, medical examiner Sara Linton.
When the past and present begin to collide, Will realizes that everything he values is at stake
About the book
Tenth book in the series by Karin Slaughter dedicated to Will Trent, an FBI special agent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Will is visiting a prison when a dead body is found after a riot and a suspect needs to be interrogated. He is in prison for killing women, 8 years earlier. The problem? He pleads innocent and says the real killer is still killing and those murders are catalogued as accidents. In fact, Will’s girlfriend and coroner, Sara, connects a woman’s apparent accident with the case she was working on 8 years earlier with her now-dead ex-husband Jeffery Tolliver.

This week question:
Have you been listening to virtual author events? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
All my book reviews are and will be 100% honest. I don’t get paid to write them and I don’t get “gifts” to write a good review so what I write is what I think. If I love a book, I’m going to say that, if I don’t like a book, I will write why I don’t. My critics aren’t an attack to the author, they are just how I feel about a subject or a style.
