Summary

When Atlanta housewife Abigail Campano comes home unexpectedly one afternoon, she walks into a nightmare. A broken window, a bloody footprint on the stairs, and, most devastating of all, the horrifying sight of her teenage daughter lying dead on the landing, a man standing over her with a bloody knife. The struggle that follows changes Abigail's life forever.

When the local police make a misjudgement that not only threatens the investigation but places a young girl's life in danger, the case is handed over to Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Apprehension Team. He's teamed with detective Faith Mitchell, a woman who resents him from their first meeting.

But in the relentless heat of a Georgia summer, Will and Faith realise that they must work together to find the brutal killer who has targeted one of Atlanta's wealthiest, most privileged communities - before it's too late.

Wish I'd realised it was abridged

I really enjoyed the storyline, but only realised upon beginning the book that it was the abridged version. It felt a bit rushed, and like certain key parts were glossed over or thrown in quickly. Still, I did enjoy the story and would read more from this author/series.

Good story, well delivered

Enjoyed this 2nd book even though it was abridged. New interesting characters brought in and learned more about the lovely insecure Will Trent. The readers were just great, loved the little nuances of voices sounding tinny on the phone etc. Can highly recommend.

Fractured

Didn't fit this as entertaining or gripping as her other books - it was an average read.

Loved it

I loved this. It was such a thrilling story with all of the classic Slaughter twists and turns. I loved the development of Will's character in terms of getting to know him more and really enjoyed the introduction to Faith Mitchell

good story

good story but occasionally repeated itself and with weird sound effects and poor editing. Read well but imo needs re editing and cleaning up.

abridged

Great story but a lot of character development is missed out in this abridged version.
