Publisher's Summary

There’s no police training stronger than a cop’s instinct. Faith Mitchell’s mother isn’t answering her phone. Her front door is open. There’s a bloodstain above the knob. Her infant daughter is hidden in a shed behind the house. All that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations taught Faith Mitchell goes out the window when she charges into her mother’s house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room. She sees a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn’t see is her mother....

“You know what we’re here for. Hand it over, and we’ll let her go.”

When the hostage situation turns deadly, Faith is left with too many questions and not enough answers. To find her mother, she’ll need the help of her partner, Will Trent, and they’ll both need the help of trauma doctor Sara Linton. But Faith isn’t just a cop anymore - she’s a witness. She’s also a suspect.

The thin blue line hides police corruption, bribery, even murder. Faith will have to go up against the people she respects the most in order to find her mother and bring the truth to light - or bury it forever.  

Karin Slaughter’s most exhilarating novel yet is a thrilling journey through the heart and soul, where the personal and the criminal collide, and conflicted loyalties threaten to destroy reputations and ruin lives. It is the work of a master of the thriller at the top of her game, and a whirlwind of unrelenting suspense.

Just okay

This was my least favorite so far in the Will Trent group. It read a little like an NCIS episode. Also...It's time for Angie to die already!

Fast Pace and Compelling Story

Loved the way it moved with speed and kept you sucked in. I also love that this is the book finally mostly bringing Will and Sara together. Of course nothing with that love story is smooth or easy or fully resolved in one book. Go figure. This series has me hooked!

Too implausible for me

It was ok, but implausible. One character gets suspended after an officer involved shooting, as one would expect. Not long after, two others in the same organization are involved in another shooting, but they continue working. The story didn't improve after that.

I loved this book

I really enjoy the books from Karin Slaughter. I enjoy Kathleen Early also I find it refreshing Karin has had Kathleen narrated so many of them. I get into the character easier having the same narrator. I’m Looking forward to listen to the next book in the series.

Another great read

I have read several Karin Slaughter books and enjoyed all of them. I particularly like the Will Trent novels. I plan to read more of them. Her intricate and interesting plots are spellbinding.

Tired of secrets and lies but the hook was excellently written

These characters are well written. The storyline is deftly plotted. Loved it. But I almost turned it off several times

Angie needs to get hit by a bus
Amanda needs to get over herself. She almost does the same psychological number on Will that Angie does
Evelyn needs to get with the program and get past the secrets and lies like Amanda
Faith needs to rely on her partner as we always hear partners should

Nonetheless, I loved the book

Betrayed, 2nd Best

This re recording with Ms Early as the narrator was great as she captures what author intended in this mystery. I have read a few of this authors books eg Triptych, Undone and could not sleep for days, so watch which story you select!
This story has the least terrorizing descriptions so if you want to try this author,then this one is great.
All the short stories in Will Trent series are great ,no gore.

Criminal is my fave as that features Amanda, some gore but not too graphic This one is Faith and Evelyn story and a definite re listen story.
Love the author introduction as she explains herself and the progression of her writing.
Not nuts about Angie character, and waited for reviews on The Kept Woman, Outstanding story, not to be missed.
In this story I loverd Jeramys character:
Ate His weight in Macaroni and cheese everyday!
This story Has lots of humor, but must watch for it.
Early is Karin voice and narrates as author intended. Hence the very smart decision to re record earlier stories using this narrator.
Were my comments of help to you?
