Review
  • Pediatrician and former Grant County, Georgia, coroner Sara Linton has seen plenty of disturbing sights since she began working in an Atlanta ER. But little could prepare her for the arrival of Anna—bruised, beaten, and battered within an inch of her life. In addition to severe surface injuries, Anna’s eleventh rib was brutally yanked from her frame. Sara is still reeling from the murder of her cop husband some three years before. As she monitors Anna, she becomes entangled in the pursuit of a beast who snatches up dark-haired beauties and slowly, over time, renders them deaf, dumb, and blind. Georgia State Bureau of Investigation special agents Faith Mitchell and Will Trent lead the investigation, though local law enforcement fights them every step of the way. Agents Mitchell and Trent have problems of their own. Single-mother Faith learns she is pregnant and diabetic; Will grapples with illiteracy. (Skeptical readers may question whether a real-life special agent lacking two of the three Rs could qualify for Agent Trent’s job.) As more women are abducted, all parties must set aside personal challenges and stay focused on the case. Best-seller Slaughter (Fractured, 2008, among many others) serves up flawed characters and grisly forensics in this suspenseful series entry. -- Block, Allison (Reviewed 05-15-2009) (Booklist, vol 105, number 18, p6)
  • /* Starred Review */ Bestseller Slaughter brings together characters from her two series for the first time with electrifying results. Dr. Sara Linton, who lost her husband in 2007’s Beyond Reach , has left rural Grant County for a new life in an underfunded Atlanta hospital. Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents Faith Mitchell and Will Trent, last seen in 2008’s Fractured , happen to be in the hospital’s ER when a woman known only as “Anna” arrives. Anna was hit by a car after escaping from an unknown captor, whose underground torture chamber Will soon uncovers near the accident site, along with the body of a second woman he believes was held in the same bunker. When another woman is snatched, Faith and Will realize they’re chasing a sadistic serial killer. As the GBI agents try to connect the victims, Sara becomes more involved in the investigation, even as it dredges up painful memories from her past. Slaughter ups the emotional ante with every twist and turn in this disturbing thriller. (July ) --Staff (Reviewed June 1, 2009) (Publishers Weekly, vol 256, issue 22, p33)
  • /* Starred Review */ In her latest thriller, New York Times best-selling author Slaughter brings together protagonists from her two series. Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents Will Trent and Faith Mitchell (introduced in Fractured ) collide with pediatrician and part-time coroner Sara Linton (last seen in Faithless ) when a torture victim appears in Linton's emergency room. Probing into the victim's personal life, the doctor and law enforcements agents must race time, battle bureaucracy, uncover myriad secrets, and enter the sadistic mind of a skilled perpetrator to solve the case. The reader will love revisiting familiar characters, even as the author pushes them to new limits. VERDICT This is a fast-paced read with a complex plot that contains enough twists to keep even the most veteran mystery reader guessing the identity of the culprit until the very end. Highly recommended as a high-octane summer read. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 3/1/09; originally titled Genesis .—Ed.]—Colleen Harris, North Carolina State Univ.
