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, 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.

Well Karin Slaughter has done it again. There is a reason why she is my favourite author! In the 5th novel in the Will Trent series (3rd novel involving characters from the Grant County series), the readers get more of an in depth look into all of the characters as well as a thrilling mystery.
I love all of the characters and their interactions were the highlight of the novel. Faith’s mother has been kidnapped, so with Faith dealing with her family, Will and Amanda were leading the case. Their banter back and forth was so funny and it was interesting the way that they processed the case together. Sara is also back and I love her involvement with the case. Side note: the handshake scene had me laughing!
I don’t want to get too much into the mystery, but of course it was a thriller! I wasn’t sure how it was going to end, but the ending had me shocked! I was surprised by all of the connections and how Will got some closure since the case was related to one of his earlier drug cases.
5 calculators out of a potential 5. Check out this series, check out Karin Slaughter! You will not regret it!
