Publisher's Summary

Three and a half years ago, former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton moved to Atlanta hoping to leave her tragic past behind her. Now working as a doctor in Atlanta's Grady Hospital, she is starting to piece her life together. But when a severely wounded young woman is brought in to the emergency room, she finds herself drawn back into a world of violence and terror. The woman has been hit by a car but, naked and brutalised, it's clear that she has been the prey of a twisted mind. When Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Investigation Team returns to the scene of the accident, he stumbles on a torture chamber buried deep beneath the earth. And this hidden house of horror reveals a ghastly truth - Sara's patient is just the first victim of a sick, sadistic killer.
Wrestling the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner Faith Mitchell find themselves at the centre of a grisly murder hunt. And Sara, Will and Faith - each with their own wounds and their own secrets - are the only thing that stands between a madman and his next crime...

I have a strong stomach for gory details, but this book made me want to vomit, I had to fast-forward my ipod over certain sections. There is gratuitous and almost pornographic focus on the worst kinds of violence. Steer clear, or read on an empty stomach.

Karin Slaughters it again

Love love love Karin Slaughter's books. Her characters are so likeable yet flawed.
I am gripped from start to finish ever time. Genesis delivered once again.
