Library Journal Review

After a stand-alone title (Pretty Girls), Slaughter returns with a new Will Trent thriller. As the book opens Will is just coming off a failed attempt at getting a conviction in the case of basketball superstar Marcus Rippy, who was acquitted of rape charges. Now he's called out to investigate the death of Dale Harding, whose body was discovered at an abandoned construction site. Dale was a retired, and reportedly dirty, cop, which is complication No. 1. -Complication No. 2 is the site itself. The construction of this nightclub was halted because the owner, Rippy, was on trial for rape. And complication No. 3: Dale may not have been the only victim. The blood and other evidence at the scene suggests the presence of a woman, who may be mortally injured and personally connected to Will. VERDICT Slaughter excels at complications-both for her characters and in the mysteries they're investigating. This is a page-turner, of course, but it's also a multilayered exploration of choices and consequences and the lasting effects of damage done.
