THE #1 BESTSELLER 20040927
* 'Karin Slaughter's fifth novel, confirms her at the summit of the school of writers specialising in forensic medicine and terror... Slaughter's characters talk in believable dialogue. She's excellent at portraying the undertones and claustrophobia of communities where everyone knows everyone else's business, and even better at creating an atmosphere of lurking evil' - The Times * 'Don't read this alone. Don't read this after dark. But do read it' - Mirror * 'Brilliantly chilling' - Heat * 'This gripping debut novel - is likely to have Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs glancing nervously in their rearview mirrors' - Irish Independent * 'A great read - crime fiction at its finest' - Michael Connelly
