Will and Sara
When Faith Mitchell calls on her mother, Evelyn, to pick up her child, she finds a dead man on the floor, blood all over the place and her mother gone. Soon after another two men are dead at the hands of Faith and the Atlanta Police Department are out to get her.
Her beguiling dyslexic partner Will Trent sets out solve the mystery, find her mother and clear her name. With the help of Sara Linton they uncover a vendetta that dates back to when Evelyn was working Narcotics.
Will Trent who has been beaten down so many times that when people bully him or put him down he just accepts it, finds in Sara Linton something of a chance for a different type of life, with someone who actually believes in him. It's a very interesting dynamic and is making the Georgia Series a definite must have.
