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.
About the book
Penultimate book in the Grant County series. Jeffery and Sara are arguing by the lake near her parents’ house, when Jeffery trips over a pipe coming out of the ground. The tube is connected to a coffin in which they find the corpse of a young woman. The woman is the granddaughter of a reverend from a community just outside town and the appearance say it is the usual cult of religious fanatics. But not everything is as it seems.
What I think
I liked the book like the others. When it comes to religious cults, especially Christian ones, I always like them so the premises were already valid. But the whole journey, from the discovery of the body to the resolution of the case was a read in one breath, I just couldn’t put the book down so much that I finished the penultimate reading at 2 am, then I collapsed before get to the end (about 70 pages) that I read the next day. I’m not young enough anymore to stay up late reading.
I like the relationship between Sara and Jeffery, although I know what happens at the end of the series since I read the series afterwards, but I like how Sara keeps Jeffery away at first.
Please tell me this is the last time I’ve read about Ethan in this series? I am fed up with Lena’s story, even if it is very topical and it is also fair to see how a policewoman struggles to break away from this situation. I don’t know, maybe because I don’t like her in the other series, but I haven’t been able to appreciate her path. Because her path is also right if we want to see the facts. What happened to her was traumatic and so it is right that she has her journey and she has to find the right way, but I can’t stand it.
However, I already have the latest book available and I hope it will be 5 star like almost all the books in this series.
