Husbands and other halves. moms and daughters. The earlier and the longer term.
Secrets bind them. And secrets and techniques can damage them.
The writer of Pretty Girls returns with an electrifying, emotionally complicated mystery that plunges its attention-grabbing protagonist into the darkest depths of a secret that simply may possibly wreck him.
With the invention of a homicide at an deserted building website, Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of research is introduced in on a case that turns into even more harmful whilst the lifeless guy is pointed out as an ex-cop.
Studying the physique, Sara Linton—the GBI’s most recent health worker and Will’s lover—realizes that the broad blood loss did not belong to the corpse. certain sufficient, bloody footprints best clear of the scene point out there's one other victim—a woman—who has vanished . . . and who will die quickly if she isn’t came upon.
Will is already compromised, as the web site belongs to the city’s most well-liked citizen: a prosperous, robust, and politically attached athlete secure by way of the world’s costliest lawyers—a guy who’s already gotten away with rape, regardless of Will’s exhaustive efforts to place him away.
But the worst is but to return. facts quickly hyperlinks Will’s prior to the case . . . and the implications will tear via his existence with the strength of a twister, wreaking havoc for Will and everybody round him, together with his colleagues, relations, friends—and even the suspects he pursues.
Relentlessly suspenseful and furiously paced, peopled with conflicted, fallible characters who bounce from the web page, The stored Woman is a unbroken combination of twisty police procedural and creative mental mystery -- a searing, unforgettable novel of affection, loss, and redemption.
