In a stifling jail cell in a hardscrabble Georgia town, Detective Lena Adams sits in stubborn silence: bruised, angry, and the only suspect in a horrific murder that left a woman incinerated beyond recognition. One hundred miles away, Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver has gotten the call that his young detective has been arrested. Jeffrey's wife, pediatrician and medical examiner Sara Linton, has little patience for Lena or her dramas. Fighting a heartbreaking malpractice suit, struggling to pick up the pieces of a shattered career, the last thing Sara needs is to see Jeffrey playing Lena's knight in shining armor. Sara cannot guess that within days she herself will be at the center of a bizarre and murderous case.

Lena has fled back to the place where she grew up hard, careening back through the shadows of her past and into a shocking underground world of bigotry and rage. The man who raised her is slowly killing himself with drugs. The man who beguiled - and beat - her is reaching out from prison. And now only Jeffrey and Sara can free Lena from the web of lies, betrayal, and brutality that has trapped her - as this powerhouse of a novel races toward its shattering climax...and a final, unforgettable twist.

    " Uh. No...no you can not do that. I can't even review this book because of the ending. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gini | 2/14/2014

    " Worst book ever. I'm going to throw away my copy so nobody else can read it. The ending was ridiculously stupid, horrible and unnecessary. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 2/1/2014

    " I remember now why I got hooked on these books a couple of years ago. I read the last page of the book with my mouth wide open in surprise. I must go get Undone today! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nabi | 1/29/2014

    " I LOVE this series! She surprised me again with the plot twists. I had to reread the last two pages...I almost cried. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruno | 1/26/2014

    " Zonder twijfel het beste boek dat ze al heeft geschreven. Er zit iets te veel opvulsel bij nog, en ze valt soms wel wat te veel in herhaling, maar dit boek heeft een heel geslaagd einde. Enige voorkennis van de personages is nuttig maar niet vereist, gezien ze bij elk van haar boeken *telkens opnieuw* de nodige achtergrondinfo voorziet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony Olivero | 1/25/2014

    " I was not happy with the ending. It made me cry. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 1/2/2014

    " The ending was a real kick in the teeth but the story was really good. I can't wait to see where she goes with the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 12/29/2013

    " I always enjoy reading a Karin Slaughter book, reading them in order has made it more enjoyable. I've gotten to "know" the characters and feel like I'm just catching up on their lives when reading. Recommend Karin's books to anyone that likes a good mystery - beware they are a bit graphic at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellie | 12/23/2013

    " Oh, the ending! This book keeps you on your toes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Yoon | 11/8/2013

    " I am left speechless. This book was really really good. I loved knowing Lena's history and the love between Sara and Jeffrey. And I am officially depressed that this book is over. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandym | 9/19/2013

    " The book was really well written and I was enjoying greatly. Why the 3 stars then? The ending. It was terribly sad and I didn't see it coming. Unfortunately for me, the ending overshadowed the entire book, which I was really into. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd Rohner | 7/3/2013

    " A good finish to the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dawn | 11/7/2012

    " The ending just blew me away (no pun intended), and not in a good way. When I read this one, I did not realize it was part of a series, so oversight on my part. But, I have to say, I was MAD when I read the last few pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Burg | 4/2/2012

    " both loved it and hated it. loved that it surprised me. better be another one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shirley | 12/8/2011

    " Possible spoiler. This was a very disturbing and sad book. Lena was the cop who should of been dismissed by Tolliver long before it got to the unhappy ending which I hated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 10/25/2011

    " OMG! I did not see that coming... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Jowett | 8/6/2011

    " It was interesting and the characters fully-developed but I rather convoluted plot and the very ending was rather pointless, unless there is a second book that I don't have to continue the story. "

    " Only the second of the Grant County books I've read. The first I read is set 4 years from now. I still like Lena even though she's got an awful lot of detractors in these books. Must find the rest of the series some time. "
