Husbands and wives. Mothers and daughters. The past and the future.

Secrets bind them. And secrets can destroy them.

With the discovery of a murder at an abandoned construction site, Will Trent and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are brought in on a case that becomes much more dangerous when the dead man is identified as an ex-cop.

Studying the body, Sara Linton--the GBI's newest medical examiner and Will's lover--realizes that the extensive blood loss didn't belong to the corpse. Bloody footprints leading away from the scene indicate there is another victim--a woman--who has vanished...and who will die soon if she isn't found.

Will is already compromised, because the site belongs to the city's most popular citizen: a wealthy, powerful, and politically connected athlete--a man who's already gotten away with rape, despite Will's exhaustive efforts to put him away.

But when evidence links Will's troubled past to the case, the consequences will tear through his life, wreaking havoc for Will and everyone around him, including his colleagues, family, friends--and even the suspects he pursues.

"I'd follow her anywhere."

Opinion

From Library Staff

Special Agent Will Trent and medical examiner Dr. Sarah Linton return to solve the murder of an ex-deputy, in this real page-turner. This is the 8th book in the series that started with Triptych.

My first time reading this writer. I liked it! I've gone back and started with TripTych which I understand to be the first of the Will Trent books. I recommend to anyone looking for a good crime novel.

This was not one of Slaughter's better books. It moved too slowly.

Crime procedural drama involving murder, drugs, prostitution ring and rouge cops. Part of a series involving characters revealing emotional scars, loyalty issues, and vices with a little romance thrown in. Started off OK but story became tedious. Below par but good prose.

Had difficulty finishing. Way too much repetitive descriptions of events. Not one of her better books....boring.
Would not recommend.

A top-notch addition to the Will Trent series, I enjoyed every minute of reading this novel, including the discovery of some big secrets -- both Angie's and Amanda's.

The Grant County series is always one of my top picks. I love Sara Linton and Will Trent! In The Kept Woman, Angie Trent, Will's estranged wife, plays a lead role. The character of Angie reminded me of the wonderful Lena Adams from earlier books in series. Slaughter creates such powerful, haunted, and self-destructive women that constantly amaze the reader. It's impossible to look away. I already can't wait for the next installment of the Grant County Series.
