Adult Fiction SLAUGHT

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Bestseller Slaughter brings together characters from her two series for the first time with electrifying results. Dr. Sara Linton, who lost her husband in 2007's Beyond Reach, has left rural Grant County for a new life in an underfunded Atlanta hospital. Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents Faith Mitchell and Will Trent, last seen in 2008's Fractured, happen to be in the hospital's ER when a woman known only as "Anna" arrives. Anna was hit by a car after escaping from an unknown captor, whose underground torture chamber Will soon uncovers near the accident site, along with the body of a second woman he believes was held in the same bunker. When another woman is snatched, Faith and Will realize they're chasing a sadistic serial killer. As the GBI agents try to connect the victims, Sara becomes more involved in the investigation, even as it dredges up painful memories from her past. Slaughter ups the emotional ante with every twist and turn in this disturbing thriller. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

In her latest thriller, New York Times best-selling author Slaughter brings together protagonists from her two series. Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents Will Trent and Faith Mitchell (introduced in Fractured) collide with pediatrician and part-time coroner Sara Linton (last seen in Faithless) when a torture victim appears in Linton's emergency room. Probing into the victim's personal life, the doctor and law enforcements agents must race time, battle bureaucracy, uncover myriad secrets, and enter the sadistic mind of a skilled perpetrator to solve the case. The reader will love revisiting familiar characters, even as the author pushes them to new limits. Verdict This is a fast-paced read with a complex plot that contains enough twists to keep even the most veteran mystery reader guessing the identity of the culprit until the very end. Highly recommended as a high-octane summer read. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 3/1/09; originally titled Genesis.-Ed.]-Colleen Harris, North Carolina State Univ. Lib., Raleigh (c) Copyright 2010.
