WATCH WILL TRENT ON ABC!
“Enter the world of Karin Slaughter. Just be forewarned, there’s no going back.” —Lisa Gardner
Will Trent and Sara Linton are back in an electrifying thriller featuring GBI investigator Will Trent and medical examiner Sara Linton from New York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter
After that night, everything changed . . .
Fifteen years ago, Sara Linton’s life changed forever when a celebratory night out ended in a violent attack that tore her world apart. Since then, Sara has remade her life. A successful doctor, engaged to a man she loves, she has finally managed to leave the past behind her.
Until one evening, on call in the ER, everything changes. Sara battles to save a broken young woman who’s been brutally attacked. But as the investigation progresses, led by GBI Special Agent Will Trent, it becomes clear that Dani Cooper’s assault is uncannily linked to Sara’s.
And the past isn’t going to stay buried forever . . .
Bestseller Slaughter's disappointing 11th entry featuring Georgia investigator Will Trent (after 2020's The Silent Wife) traces the fallout from a sexual assault. Doctor Sara Linton (from Slaughter's Grant County series) is working at Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital when 19-year-old Dani Cooper is admitted with fatal injuries from a car accident. Sara also recognizes signs of rape, which Dani confirms with her dying breaths. Having been raped herself 15 years earlier, Sara vows to bring Dani's assailant to justice. Three years later, Sara prepares to go on the stand in a case against Tommy McCallister, who's been charged with Dani's assault; meanwhile, Tommy's parents, multimillionaire doctors Britt and Mac McCallister, pressure Dani's family into accepting a settlement that will keep Tommy out of jail. Sara enlists Trent—her fiancé—and his investigative partner Faith Mitchell to dig up information about the McCallisters, and they stumble on a bombshell piece of information that may reframe Sara's own assault. Slaughter is hardly in top form here: the repetitive, protracted plot hinges on too many coincidences and easy confessions. Fans will hope for a return to form the next time out.
There was only 2 things wrong about this book.
#1-too much time between books and #2~it ended too soon. LOVED the book!!!!
After That Night
Don’t understand the negative publisher’s weekly review. That and another negative review actually made this move up on my want to read list. I have enjoyed both the Sara Linton and Will Trent series since the beginning (although I was shocked and skeptical at first when they were combined). I thought this was an excellent story that brought some closure to the tragedy that forever changed Sara’s life. Per usual, it was a page turner with a satisfying ending. There were parts that were definitely hard to read but she did a great job handling such difficult topics. In my opinion, this was just as good as all the other books in the series if not better.
After That Night
I've waited a long time for another Will and Sara. These are my favorite by Karin. I really took my time with this one an enjoyed it. I hope it's not to long before the next one.I will just reread my others until then. Great book kept me guessing until the end
