Atlanta in the ’70s is a cop town but with diversity being a concept not accepted by the majority of the police force the unwritten rules of policing are different to what we know today. Kate Murphy who has been widowed for 2 years joins up as a new recruit and undergoes a baptism of fire as the hunt is on to find a cop killer who has struck yet again as she begins her first damon the force.
I have been a Karin Slaughter fan for more years than I care to mention and I enjoy her stand alone novels AS much has I enjoy the ones in a series, this one was great to read as it was in keeping in which it was set and the identity of the mysterious Shooter was hard to guess. The backdrop of the narrow attitudes and discrimination gave the book an edge and it was overall fun to read.
