Publisher's Summary

Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda’s motivation until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before, when his father was imprisoned for murder, this was Will’s home.

It appears that the case that launched Amanda’s career 40 years ago has suddenly come back to life - and it involves the long-held mystery of Will’s birth and parentage. Now these two dauntless investigators will each need to face down demons from the past, if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed.

Suspenseful Crime story

This was a well written suspense Crime novel. Karen had me guessing right up to the end how the story all fit together. The audio voices were well done, giving life to the voices of each character.

Listening to the audio, I was sometimes confused with the jumping back and forth from past to present day. But this might be my own issue from missing parts of the audio book from outside distractions.

Over all this was a great listen. I do think I will listen to it again one day to better acquaint myself with the characters from the beginning.

I would also recommend reading Karen Slaughter’s “Will Bennett” Series in order. This will help you with familiarity of the characters. Criminal is Book 6 in this series.

Good Story

I really liked the storyline though jumping back and forth was hard on my brain. I strongly dislike the character Will Trent. He doesn’t seem like a good match for Sarah and it makes her look weak the way she dissolves into him. The story however is really good. I just hope that Trent changes in future books to become a more rounded person.

Best one yet!

I have enjoyed all of the books in the series but this one is really good. The back and forth timeline and really getting to know Amanda Wagner was great. It’s kind of predicable at the end, enjoy it anyway!
