Saturday night dates at the skating rink have been a tradition in the small southern town of Heartsdale for as long as anyone can remember, but when a teenage quarrel explodes into a deadly shoot-out, Sara Linton-the town's pediatrician and medical examiner-finds herself entangled in a terrible tragedy. What seemed at first to be a horrific but individual catastrophe proves to have wider implications. The autopsy reveals evidence of long-term abuse, of ritualistic self -mutilation, but when Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver start to investigate, they are frustrated at every turn. The children surrounding the victim close ranks. The families turn their backs. Then a young girl is abducted, and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to an even more brutal crime, one far more shocking than anyone could have imagined. Meanwhile, detective Lena Adams, still recovering from her sister's death and her own brutal attack, finds herself drawn to a young man who might hold the answers. But unless Lena, Sara, and Jeffrey can uncover the deadly secrets the children hide, it's going to happen again . . .… (more)

Story is disturbing but a page-turner. The characters are so complex in their feelings. Unfortunately, the main male figure is one-dimensional. ( )

This may be my last in the series. With the exception of my growing fondness for Lena, I don't care for any of the other characters and a few I would like to see horrible things happen to them.

This story was much harder for me to read than the first. The subject matter is one that I have a particularly tough time reading about but I don't think it was any more or less graphic than the first in the series, Blindsighted. It was probably less graphic but more emotionally painful. ( )

"Een mix van verschillende soorten verhaallijnen die door elkaar heen lopen, zorgen voor een aangename afwisseling"

As always with Karin Slaughter, well written, with a lot of suspense. But some characters are in my opinion over the top. ( )

This was such a good book!! It was so realistic that at times I cringed and had a hard time reading it, but oh man was this a good story!! Can't wait to read the next one! ( )
