"A pleasant walk in the woods takes a sinister turn for police chief Jeffrey Tolliver and pediatrician/coroner Sara Linton when they stumble across the body of a young girl. Incarcerated in the ground, she has quite literally been scared to death. Detective Lena Adams is called in from vacation to help with the investigation, and the trail leads to a neighbouring county - and to a long-buried secret in Sara's mother's past. Forced to go undercover to protect the people she loves most, Sara - along with Jeffrey and Lena - soon learns that nothing comes without a price." Having read all of Karin Slaughters books I eagerly awaited this one and was not disappointed another excellent read. Once again we meet up with the town coroner Sara Linton and partner Chief of Police Jeffery Tolliver who having been in all of her novels you really care about them both and you feel like you know all the characters really well. Excellent plot very well written kept me reading all night.Karin Slaughters books just get better and better already looking forward to her next one and if you havent read any of her books treat yourself to them all, you will not be disappointed.
