The seventh Will Trent novel, from the #1 bestselling author
Special Agent Will Trent has something to hide. Something he doesn’t want Dr Sara Linton – the woman he loves – to find out.
He’s gone undercover in Macon, Georgia and put his life at risk. And he knows Sara will never forgive him if she discovers the truth.
But when a young patrolman is shot and left for dead Sara is forced to confront the past and a woman she hoped never to see again. And without even knowing it, she becomes involved in the same case Will is working on.
Soon both of their lives are in danger.

Bestseller Slaughter's tense and densely plotted thriller, the fifth to merge her Atlanta-based characters with those in Georgia's fictional Grant County (after 2012's Criminal), focuses on stubborn Lena Adams, a Macon police detective and the woman that Dr. Sara Linton the girlfriend of Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Will Trent blames for her husband Jeffrey's murder years earlier. Lena, now married to Jeffrey's son from his first marriage, is hot on the trail of a local drug kingpin, Sid Waller. Sent undercover to assist in the investigation, Will adopts the persona of tough ex-con Bill Black, all unbeknownst to Sara. But Will's secret suddenly becomes harder to keep when Lena and her fellow officer husband, Jared, are attacked in their home, leaving Jared clinging to life and bringing Sara from Atlanta to Macon to see her stepson. The twisted plot and shocking reveals remind readers why Slaughter remains a dominant voice in crime fiction.
