The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A body is discovered in
an empty Atlanta warehouse. It's the body of an ex-cop, and from the
moment Special Agent Will Trent walks in he knows this could be the most
devastating case of his career. Bloody footprints leading away from the
scene reveal that another victim - a woman - has left the scene and
vanished into thin air. And, worst of all, the warehouse belongs to the
city's biggest, most politically-connected, most high-profile athlete - a
local hero protected by the world's most expensive lawyers. A local
hero Will has spent the last six months investigating on a brutal rape
But for Will - and also for Dr Sara Linton, the GBI's
newest medical examiner - the case is about to get even worse. Because
an unexpected discovery at the scene reveals a personal link to Will's
troubled past. The consequences will wreak havoc on his life and the
lives of those he loves, those he works with, and those he pursues.
But Sara's scene-of-the-crime diagnosis is that they only have a few hours to find the missing woman before she bleeds out .
Another good, dark, gritty thriller. Lots of twists and turns and layered characters to keep the pages turning.
