Gillian Flynn says, "Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today."
Saturday night dates at the skating rink have long been a tradition in the small southern town of Heartsdale, but when a teenage quarrel explodes into a deadly shoot-out, medical examiner Sara Linton and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver find themselves entangled in a terrible tragedy.
Then a young girl is abducted, and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to an even more brutal crime, one more shocking than anyone could have imagined. Meanwhile, Detective Lena Adams, recovering from a staggering personal loss, finds herself drawn to a young man who might hold the answers. But unless Lena, Sara, and Jeffrey can uncover the dark truth, someone will die again.
Mercilessly suspenseful, utterly moving, this is a searing thriller from one of the world's most talented suspense writers.
