3 stars

A body is discovered in an empty Atlanta warehouse. It's the body of an ex-cop, and from the moment Special Agent Will Trent walks in he knows this could be the most devastating case of his career. Bloody footprints leading away from the scene reveal that another victim - a woman - has left the scene and vanished into thin air. And, worst of all, the warehouse belongs to the city's biggest, most politically-connected, most high-profile athlete - a local hero protected by the world's most expensive lawyers. A local hero Will has spent the last six months investigating on a brutal rape charge.
But for Will - and also for Dr 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. The consequences will wreak havoc on his life and the lives of those he loves, those he works with, and those he pursues.

Yay Will!! It is so good to finally see him step away from his past. It has been one of the things that has been disturbing me most about Will in the Will Trent series, his difficulty with stepping up and make some real decisions about his life. Still I wanted to hit him 520 pages long but it felt good.
This book brings together a lot of known characters and people from Will his past. It was getting more and more disturbing how they were connected. Sara seemed to be the most normal in the whole book and knowing where she is coming from that was a weird thought.
I enjoyed getting to know Angie better. Not that it makes her a better or less of a psycho but it was nice to get more of a background on her.
The story is a nice puzzle again. One person is killed and there is a whole group of suspects. With all the twists I am curious how the series will be moving on. This book is not a stand-alone to read. You will miss to much information on the characters to understand the importance of parts of the story.
