Read by Kathleen Early Karin Slaughterâ€™s new novel is an epic tale of love, loyalty, and murder that encompasses forty years, two chillingly similar murder cases, and a good manâ€™s deepest secrets. Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amandaâ€™s motivation until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades beforeâ€”when Willâ€™s father was imprisoned for murderâ€”this was his home. . . . Flash back nearly forty years. In the summer Will Trent was born, Amanda Wagner is going to college, making Sunday dinners for her father, taking her first steps in the boysâ€™ club that is the Atlanta Police Department. One of her first cases is to investigate a brutal crime in one of the cityâ€™s worst neighborhoods. Amanda and her partner, Evelyn, are the only ones who seem to care if an arrest is ever made. Now the case that launched Amandaâ€™s career has suddenly come back to life, intertwined with the long-held mystery of Willâ€™s birth and parentage. And these two dauntless investigators will each need to face down demons from the past if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed.
