If you like an severe murder mystery, this one is for you. I grabbed this audio book for a road trip. Not knowing it was 3rd in a series of Will Trent, detective, series. I liked it. His character is that yummy kind of southern charming, very strong, reliable, yet vulnerable, soft-spoken but does not miss a beat. A good kind of a man to have around. And the murder mystery. Whoosh, kind of breath taking. If you are feint of heart, do not read this book. There are many women killed and tortured in terrible ways, a sexual component to it and pretty fantastic twists. It is rare for me not to be able to solve the who-dun-it....I was shocked by the ending. A 'good-un" if you like this sort of thing. We have officers killed in the line-of-duty, babies everywhere, crack houses, caves, devout christians, Georgio Armani suits and Tickle-Me-Elmo sneakers. Great characters. Twisty captivating story. and a talented audio-actress! No mistake this authors name is Slaughter!
