Book Synopsis:
This is Karin Slaughter’s ninth book and three great characters from her previous books reappear. Special Agents Faith Mitchell and Will Trent get to meet Dr. Sara Linton, and Will is infatuated while Faith is jealous. It’s fair to say all three are still experiencing their own individual traumas. But in spite of their personal lives they combine to investigate a horrific case of kidnapping and torture, desperate to solve it before more women die. It is a case rich in biblical overtones, hence the title. The writing is what we have come to expect from Karin Slaughter, chilling, compelling and fast moving. The story is rich in forensic medicine and certainly not for the faint-hearted. If you have already enjoyed Karin Slaughter you will not be disappointed: if you haven’t read one yet, start now.
