Publisher's Summary

Gillian Flynn says, "Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today."
Saturday night dates at the skating rink have been a tradition in the small southern town of Heartsdale for as long as anyone can remember, but when a teenage quarrel explodes into a deadly shoot-out, Sara Linton - the town's pediatrician and medical examiner - finds herself entangled in a terrible tragedy.
What seemed at first to be a horrific but individual catastrophe proves to have wider implications. The autopsy reveals evidence of long-term abuse, of ritualistic self -mutilation, but when Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver start to investigate, they are frustrated at every turn.
The children surrounding the victim close ranks. The families turn their backs. Then a young girl is abducted, and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to an even more brutal crime, one far more shocking than anyone could have imagined. Meanwhile, detective Lena Adams, still recovering from her sister's death and her own brutal attack, finds herself drawn to a young man who might hold the answers. But unless Lena, Sara, and Jeffrey can uncover the deadly secrets the children hide, it's going to happen again...

Great Series

I love the Grant County series and this is my second visit to these stories since I read them in the early 2000s.
Slaughter is a great writer and really makes you care about the characters. Audio version is good also, I love the southern drawl from the narrator. Only criticism if any is that in the moments you'd read as full of suspense, she doesn't have any real change to her tone. It's all a bit one level. Which is odd because she's great at emphasising when a character is raising their voice etc.

Not my favourite but still good

Good book. Wasn't keen on the narrator. Irked me how much emphasis she put in pronouncing the words with 'wh' in them.
