An apparent student suicide has brought medical examiner Sara Linton to the local college campus, along with her ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver. But a horribly mutilated corpse yields up few answers. And a suspicious rash of subsequent "suicides" suggests that a different kind of terror is stalking the youth of Heartsdale, Georgia -- a nightmare that is coming to prey on Sara Linton's loved ones.
A small town is being transformed into a killing ground. And the key to a sadistic murderer's motive and identity may be held in the unsteady hands of a campus security guard -- a former police detective driven from the force by the hellish memories that will never leave her. Lena Adams survived the unthinkable and has paid a devastating price. Now the survival of future victims may depend upon her ... when she can barely protect herself.

Karin Slaughter is the #1 international bestseller of several novels, including the Grant County series. A long-time resident of Atlanta, she splits her time between the kitchen and the living room.From AudioFile:
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. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
