by Karin Slaughter
In the city of Atlanta, women are dying – at the hands of a killer who signs his work with a single, chilling act of mutilation. Leaving behind enough evidence to fuel a frienzied police hunt, this cunning madman is bringing together dozens of lives, crossing the boundaries of wealth and race. And the people who are chasing him must cross those boundaries too. Among them is Michael Ormewood, a veteran detective whose marriage is hanging by a thread – and whose arrogance and explosive temper are threatening his career. And Angie Polaski, a beautiful vice cop who was once Michael’s lover before she became his enemy.
But another player has entered the game: a loser ex-con who has stumbled upon the killer’s trail in the most coincidental of ways – someone who may be the key to breaking the case wide open…
Review: Read in 2997. This is the first Karin Slaughter book I’ve read. Doesn’t mean I don’t already have some of hers on my shelf, LOL! There’s a series she wrote, but I’m missing a couple in the series, and I won’t read them till I have them all.
I liked the twists in the book. The characters were great. I don’t know how much of a review I can give without blowing or spoiling anything for anyone. Okay,I can say I had my suspicions in the last half of the book, and I wasn’t correct in a couple of them. I liked the plot, the characters, the setting made you feel like you were right there with them. Excellent!
