In a stifling hospital room in a small Georgia town, Detective Lena Adams sits, silent and angry—the only suspect in a horrific murder. Soon, a hundred miles away, Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver will get the call that his young detective has been arrested. And Jeffrey’s wife, pediatrician and medical examiner Sara Linton, has troubles of her own and little patience for Lena or her dramas. Fighting a heartbreaking malpractice suit, Sara cannot guess that within days she herself will be at the center of a bizarre and murderous case. 

For 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. And now only Jeffrey and Sara can free Lena from the web of lies and brutality that has trapped her—as this powerhouse of a novel races toward its shattering climax…and a final, unforgettable twist.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Karin Slaughter's Unseen.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jul 30, 2007 – Slaughter's newest novel to feature perennially distressed pediatrician/coroner Sara Linton; her ultra-macho, guilt-ridden husband, Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver; and self-destructive loose cannon detective Lena Adams is so dark at times one gets lost in the shadows, especially with the changing points of view and a shifting timeline. The audio begins with dirge-like music fading into Bean's anxiety-filled voice as she describes a drugged woman being driven to a desolate place to be burned alive. But even this does not quite prepare listeners for the grim events to come as Linton and Tolliver travel to rescue Adams from a trumped-up murder charge. Bean has a clear understanding of the material and its appeal to Slaughter's fans, moving unhesitatingly through multiple homicides, chopped limbs and detailed autopsies. She also provides the proper vocals for the author's large cast of characters, the females exhibiting the more natural-sounding good-old-girl accents, while the males seem a little gruffer than life. The vivid descriptions of the horrifying effects of crystal meth addiction, emotionally rendered by Bean, make the audio required listening for anyone tempted to sample the drug. "Simultaneous release with the Delacorte Press hardcover (Reviews, June 11). " .

Way too narrative. You can skip 10 pages and not loose the plot.
