Faith Mitchell's instincts are sharp. Perhaps too sharp. She was supposed to pick up her infant baby at noon, but no answer greets her when she calls her mother's house. She knows her mother doesn't leave the house without letting someone know, especially with a baby in tow. Something's wrong, very wrong...and Faith knows this. She comes home to find a crime scene in the kitchen, a spattering of blood on the kitchen door, a hostage in the bedroom, and her mother? Her mother is nowhere to be found. Faith is used to crime, but not to this. This time, she's not just the cop, she's the victim...and there aren't enough answers in the world to answer this one for her.

Slaughter's relatable characters and twisting plot are sure to be a hit both for new readers and for fans of her other series. As readers of all ages follow Faith's journey, questions will arise, only to produce new ones. By the end, we're left wondering: will she ever be able to get back to normal? The book is a sure hit for any lover of suspense.

Karin Slaughter is an American crime writer, most famous for her internationally-acclaimed novel Blindsided. She also wrote two series, one set in Atlanta under the name Will Trent, and one set in Georgia's Grant County under the name of Grant County. She's also written several books combining the two series. She is currently part of a 'save the libraries' event geared toward saving the Dekalb County Public Library in Dekalb, Georgia.

There’s no police training stronger than a cop’s instinct. 

Faith Mitchell’s mother isn’t answering her phone. Her front door is open. There’s a bloodstain above the knob. Everything Faith learned in the academy goes out the window when she charges into her mother’s house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room, a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn’t see is her mother. When the hostage situation turns deadly, Faith is left with too many questions. She’ll need the help of her partner, Will Trent, and trauma doctor Sara Linton to get some answers. But Faith isn’t just a cop anymore, she’s a witness—and a suspect. To find her mother, Faith will have to cross the thin blue line and bring the truth to light—or bury it forever.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Her story is expertly written, exhaustively researched, steeped in police lore, deeply rooted in the author’s native Georgia and exceedingly violent. Slaughter has a rare ability to balance violence with a compassionate view of her complex and all-too-human characters.”

    " I really wanted to like this book but I'm so disappointed with it. I found this book tiring although it's quite easy to read, the story seems so predictable. I found this book so American, Hollywood cheesy style and racist in some way (maybe it's just me). Sadly I won't read any of her books again. "
