another great read from Karin with a twist at the end that is totally unexpected.
Sadly I have not read this series in order so am unsure if Jeffery is dead, alive,husband or ex husband, I am sure this will be clarified at some point

It was good to get back to Grant County, this time seeing it through Will Trent's eyes. Lena remains a character you love to hate, but at the same time you can't help hoping things will turn out good for her. I can't help but wonder if this is the last we'll see if Grant County. So much bad has happened there; maybe that community deserves a break.

*** stars. Ms. Slaughter combines two of her series in this mystery - it is number 4 in the Will Trent series and number 7 in the Grant county. When the body of a young woman is discovered beneath the icy waters of Lake Grant, a note left under a rock by the shore points to suicide. But within minutes, it becomes clear that this is murder, not suicide. Former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton - home for Thanksgiving after a long absence - finds herself unwittingly drawn into the case. The chief suspect is desperate to see her but when she arrives at the local police station she is met with a horrifying sight - he lies dead in his cell, the words 'Not me' scrawled across the walls. Yet he has signed a confession. Deeply suspicious of Lena Adams, the detective in charge, Sara immediately calls in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Shortly afterwards, Special Agent Will Trent is brought in to investigate. But he is immediately confronted with a wall of silence on the part of the police department. Grant County is a close-knit community with loyalties and ties that run deep. The only person who can tell the truth about what really happened is dead. Then murder strikes again. What can two young college sweethearts have been involved in that resulted in their deaths? Recommend

Pretty good book. Liked most of it except the twist at the end, not quite believable after the set-up in the book

Suspense and conflict between various law enforcement agencies. Stars several characters from earlier novel. including Sara Linton, Will Trent and Lena Adams.
Karin Slaughter is a hard book to put down once you get started.
This is her latest in a long list of bestsellers. I rate 4 1/2 stars.

I think this is my favourite Karin Slaughter book so far. Reading her previous books in this series would be helpful and probably recommended in order to understand some of the character dynamics.
