The sixth book in Karin Slaughter's #1 bestselling GRANT COUNTY series.
Lena Adams has spent her life struggling to forget her childhood in Reece, the small town which nearly destroyed her. She's made a new life as a police detective in Heartsdale - but nothing could prepare her for the violence which explodes when she is forced to return.
A vicious murder leaves a young woman incinerated beyond recognition. And Lena is the only suspect.
Her boss, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, has no choice but to help. Soon after his arrival, a second victim is found dead and the town closes ranks.
Jeffrey is soon entangled in a horrifying underground world of bigotry and rage.
Can he discover the truth before the killer strikes again?

So much good character development. Ending a bit abrupt though.
Again a top class novel, thoroughly enjoyed it
Firstly oh my gosh! I have never been so enthralled in a story as much as Jeffrey and Sara’s and the focus of each book just made me hungry for more. I’m devastated that it’s come to the end. I really hope there’s more books later. A must read!
