When Atlanta police detective Michael Ormewood is called out to a murder scene at the notorious Grady Homes, he finds himself faced with one of the the most brutal killings of his career: Aleesha Monroe is found in the stairwell in a pool of her own blood, her body horribly mutilated.
As a one-off killing it's shocking, but when it becomes clear that it's just the latest in a series of similar attacks, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are called in, and Ormewood is forced into working with Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Apprehension Team - a man he instinctively dislikes.
But then, only twenty-four hours later, the violence Ormewood sees around him every day explodes in his own back yard. And it seems the mystery behind Monroe's death is inextricably entangled with a past that refuses to stay buried...
Karen Slaughter's books are phenomenal is it's attention to detail and compelling story-lines. She's probably one of my favourite authers in terms of murder/mystery reads (though some of her work can be a little graphic) - I found that if you've read one of her books and you enjoyed it, you'll be searching for a next one. Her books reaveal new twists all the time and as soon as you think you know where it's heading - there's yet another detail which alters your opinion of "who-done-it" again. Rivetting read
