I have recently started reading her books and I have to say I'm really enjoying them! Great read!

I had to keep checking to make sure I had the right author~ this book is not as good as her usual stuff. (Maybe because it was written earlier in her writing career?)
I normally get tired of books written from Sarah's point of view because she's so sheltered, whiny & small-hearted. Ugh! But this was more annoying than normal. It was so full of cliched thinking, and really heavy with the long-winded ponderings. Also, towards the end I felt really irritated. Slaughter builds the suspense with totally pointless stuff, and takes the red herrings ridiculously far.
All in all, I enjoy Karin Slaughter, but should've skipped this one.

Good book. Lots of twisted and turns. Maybe I've been reading too many of her books lately because I didn't find this one as good as the other ones. I got real tired of hearing Dr. Sarah complaining and worrying all the time. But I guess she's got good reasons.

I haven't read this book yet but I was very disappointed to see that one of the comments
gave away the ending.
