The body of a young woman is found close to the shore of a lake. At first it looks like suicide, there is even a note left, with 'I Want It Over' written on it. However, on examining the body, it appears that the women has been murdered. A young, local man is brought in for questioning, but is later found dead in his cell.
This book got off to a great start, and was enjoyable for the first few hundred pages. I find the characters of Sara Linton, Will Trent, Lena Adams all interesting and engaging. Added the that the story is for the most part real southern 'whodunnit'. However, as the story progressed, I felt the plot became a bit slow moving, and had lost its initial 'buzz'. Overall, I thought the book was fairly good, but could have been cut by at least fifty pages, without affecting the storyline.
