The fourth Will Trent novel, from the #1 bestselling author
When the body of a young woman is discovered deep beneath the icy waters of Lake Grant, a note left under a rock by the shore points to suicide. But within minutes, it becomes clear that this is no suicide. It's a brutal, cold-blooded murder.
All too soon, former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton - home for Thanksgiving after a long absence - finds herself unwittingly drawn into the case. The chief suspect is desperate to see her, but when she arrives at the local police station she is met with a horrifying sight - he lies dead in his cell, the words 'Not me' scrawled across the walls.
Something about his confession doesn't add up and, deeply suspicious of Lena Adams, the detective in charge, Sara immediately calls in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Shortly afterwards, Special Agent Will Trent is brought in from his vacation to investigate. But he is immediately confronted with a wall of silence. Grant County is a close-knit community with loyalties and ties that run deep. And the only person who can tell the truth about what really happened is dead...

Thanks to the other reviewer...
The one who happened to spoil the cliff hanger ending of the story 2 books ago (not everyone has read them yet!) by mentioning that one of the lead characters is in fact dead. Cheers for that! Really appreciate it.
I have really enjoyed other books by this author particularly the grant county There's really no proper plot to this story just a bit of a hangover from the previous story and a incidental bit of crime that really didn't interest me at all. It didn't seem to interest the author either.
As for the narration I struggled to understand her at first. The ends of her words are so clipped and the volume is low. It's fine listening on headphones but not on IPhone speakers.
Can't recommend it sorry. If you've read the others in the series give it a bash but i would get it from the library where you don't have to pay for it! It's not a keeper re-reader! Oh and I forgot to mention the music is really annoying. And as for plot spoilers in this review I've removed then but I do wonder how far you would get reading this book before the penny dropped that there's a main character missing. Couple of sentences maybe????
The rating 'OK' just about justifies this audio book and the narrator was frankly awful
