Sara Linton - resident medical examiner/paediatrician in Grant County, Georgia - has plenty of hardship to deal with, including defending herself in a heartbreaking malpractice suit. So when her husband, Police chief Jeffery Tolliver, learns that his friend and coworker detective Lena Adams has been arrested for murder and needs Sara's help, she is not sure she can handle the pressure of it all. But soon Sara an Jeffery are sitting through evidence, peeling back the layers of a mystery that grows darker by the day - until an intricate web of betrayal and vengeance begins to unravel. And suddenly the lives of Sara, Lena, and Jeffery are hanging by the slenderest of threads.
About the book
Sara Linton must defend herself in front of the Georgia court. The parents of a dead patient believe she did not treat their child as expected. Lena is under arrest for murder. So when her boss finds out, he leaves everything and with Sara, her wife, they run to help Lena.
What I think
I really don’t like the beginning … Sara implicated in a debatable case and Lena arrested. The premises are not good. Two of the three topics I don’t like.
Since Lena is not my favorite character, I didn’t care so much that she was arrested, and the malpractice case is just beginning, then Lena’s case takes up the whole book. So in the end these two aspects that I don’t like, didn’t contribute to a loss of stars. I liked the book very much, the end did not shock me because I already knew it and perhaps it was better this way, at least I haven’t stopped reading the author.
The case is very crude, it speaks of neo-Nazis and so you can imagine how many absurd words I had to read.
Honestly, as already said, Lena bored me a bit and I’m happy that she is not very present in the new series. I liked Sara instead and I’ve always liked her since the first time I read her in the sister series. Maybe I’m the only one who liked the ending.
I am happy that I don’t have to read more of Ethan Green in the new series. Or I honestly don’t remember if he’s there.
Yes, I really liked the series and I’m happy with how it went. I highly recommend it, but the author deals with raw arguments so it’s not for everyone.
