The Skimm Reads calls it "a thriller that's part
True Detective, part The Girl On The
Train. All parts gripping."
Husbands and wives. Mothers and daughters. The
past and the future.
Secrets bind them. And secrets can destroy them.
The author of Pretty Girls returns with an
electrifying, emotionally complex thriller that plunges its
fascinating protagonist into the darkest depths of a mystery
that just might destroy him.
With the discovery of a murder at an abandoned construction
site, Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is
brought in on a case that becomes much more dangerous when
the dead man is identified as an ex-cop.
Studying the body, Sara Lintonâ€”the GBIâ€™s newest medical
examiner and Willâ€™s loverâ€”realizes that the extensive blood
loss didn't belong to the corpse. Sure enough, bloody
footprints leading away from the scene indicate there is
another victimâ€”a womanâ€”who has vanished . . . and who will
die soon if she isnâ€™t found.
Will is already compromised, because the site belongs to the
cityâ€™s most popular citizen: a wealthy, powerful, and
politically connected athlete protected by the worldâ€™s most
expensive lawyersâ€”a man whoâ€™s already gotten away with rape,
despite Willâ€™s exhaustive efforts to put him away.
But the worst is yet to come. Evidence soon links Willâ€™s
troubled past to the case . . . and the consequences will
tear through his life with the force of a tornado, wreaking
havoc for Will and everyone around him, including his
colleagues, family, friendsâ€”and even the suspects he pursues.
Relentlessly suspenseful and furiously paced, peopled with
conflicted, fallible characters who leap from the page,
The Kept Woman is a seamless blend of twisty police
procedural and ingenious psychological thriller -- a
searing, unforgettable novel of love, loss, and redemption.
