Slaughter writes a good thriller. The murders are brutal and the chase for the killer is twisty with several surprises as the tale unfolds. It takes a while to get its footing, but that‘s not surprising for the first book in a series. I‘ll definitely pick up the next, but (and I know this is blasphemous) I may like the TV show better, at least for now. This has one of my least favorite plots and I‘m horrified and sickened by the crimes in it.
