Bodies are cropping up everywhere, bringing together a seemingly unrelated cast of characters. In earlier novels, Karin Slaughter developed a reputation for describing horrific crimes in excruciating detail. This novel also unravels a legacy of brutal violence. Deborah Hazlett absorbs each character role with casual subtlety. Her inflection and pace will leave no doubt in listeners' minds about the significance of various medical symptoms, and her perfect pronunciation of medical terminology and authoritative tone add authenticity to her performance. Major clues in each CD keep listeners riveted from beginning to end. K.A.T.
