What you need to know before your trail

Three and a half years ago former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton moved to Atlanta hoping to leave her tragic past behind her. Now working as a doctor in Atlanta’s Grady Hospital she is starting to piece her life together. But when a severely wounded young woman is brought in to the emergency room, she finds herself drawn back into a world of violence and terror. The woman has been hit by a car but, naked and brutalised, it’s clear that she has been the prey of a twisted mind.

When Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Investigation Team returns to the scene of the accident, he stumbles on a torture chamber buried deep beneath the earth. And this hidden house of horror reveals a ghastly truth – Sara’s patient is just the first victim of a sick, sadistic killer. Wrestling the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner Faith Mitchell find themselves at the centre of a grisly murder hunt. And Sara, Will and Faith – each with their own wounds and their own secrets – are all that stand between a madman and his next crime…

Travel Guide


Atlanta’s Grady Hospital

This major hospital is the focus of this tour of Atlanta courtesy of Karin Slaughter. The plot is particularly grim in places as it looks at women. Someone believes they should be tormented for a variety of reasons and so the locations are those of rape and attack which can get rather grim.

The hospital is the main focus of the book and some scenes in the emergency room can get pretty grim to say the least. Sara is from Grant County, but has relocated to Atlanta following the death of her husband. Maybe she will consider after this book!
