It's the most dangerous case of Will Trent's career. He knows this from the moment he sets foot in the abandoned Atlanta warehouse where a body lies on the floor--the body of an ex-cop. Bloody footprints leading away from the scene reveal that another victim, evidently a woman, was carried away ... and has vanished into thin air. And, worst of all, the warehouse belongs to the city's biggest and most high-profile athlete--a local hero protected by the world's most expensive lawyers. A hero married to Will's ex-wife. A hero whom Will's superiors at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation have spent the last six months investigating for rape.But for Will--and also for Sara Linton, the GBI's newest medical examiner--the case is about to get even worse. Because an unexpected discovery at the scene reveals a personal link to Will's troubled past ... and the consequences will wreak havoc on his life and the lives of those he loves, those he works with, and those he pursues.

This was not one of Slaughter's better books. It moved too slowly.

Crime procedural drama involving murder, drugs, prostitution ring and rouge cops. Part of a series involving characters revealing emotional scars, loyalty issues, and vices with a little romance thrown in. Started off OK but story became tedious. Below par but good prose.

Had difficulty finishing. Way too much repetitive descriptions of events. Not one of her better books....boring.
Would not recommend.

A top-notch addition to the Will Trent series, I enjoyed every minute of reading this novel, including the discovery of some big secrets -- both Angie's and Amanda's.

The Grant County series is always one of my top picks. I love Sara Linton and Will Trent! In The Kept Woman, Angie Trent, Will's estranged wife, plays a lead role. The character of Angie reminded me of the wonderful Lena Adams from earlier books in series. Slaughter creates such powerful, haunted, and self-destructive women that constantly amaze the reader. It's impossible to look away. I already can't wait for the next installment of the Grant County Series.
