2016; William Morrow (461 Pages)

WOWEE!!! Karin Slaughter has written another winner. Whenever I start a Slaughter book, I know I will not be doing much of anything else. From the first page I am hooked and I can read fast enough. I received this novel last year but I have been putting it off. I don't really have many book crushes but Will, well he...is right up there with Gilbert Blythe (From Anne of Green Gables) for me. Slaughter is just amazing at characterization - as much as I love Will and Geoffrey for their flaws, I dislike very strongly Lena and Angie for their selfishness. Slaughter's writing is not for the faint of heart - it is gritty and dark, very gritty and dark - so be warned.

In this one, Sara is called to a murder where the dead body is that of a police officer. Sara realizes that the extensive amount of blood does not belong to the corpse, but belongs to a woman. They must find the missing woman as she may be close to death with the loss of blood - victim or killer.

The body is found in a night club owned by a basketball star that was accused of rape. A case that Will had been investigating. With high priced lawyers, and other powerful allies, the athlete was able to walk. And if that is not enough on his plate, Angie is back in his life.

This book was a crazy ride - especially an emotional rollercoaster. We get to know Angie's story. It gives you insight to how she got to be the way she is. I am still not a fan of her but I have moved her from the "hate" column to the "strongly dislike" one. I cannot wait till the next Will Trent book!!!
