Lena is back and right in Sara Linton's face! I read the first chapter in the short story promo Busted
and couldn't wait. Of course this resulted in ignoring the family around me and delving back into small town Georgia for a whole day until I finished the book.
This book has brought me back to the first books Karin Slaughter used to write: good plot, each chapter ending with a cliff hanger, a bit of time jumping and really allowing the reader to add imagination to the plots that weren't necessarily explained in depth. Emotional scenes didn't need in depth characterisation - it was simple and effective story telling.
I did guess the suspects and I don't think there were as many red herrings as in previous Karin Slaughter books, but it didn't matter, it was action packed and back to the usual gory descriptions of violence that the author is so well known for and that I missed in some of her latter books.
There is some absolution finally between all the main characters as well as a very intense scene between Sara & Lena where they have it out with each other.
As always does not disappoint!
