The Kept Woman

Book: The Kept Woman
Series: Will Trent #8
Author: Karin Slaughter

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 Linton—the GBI’s newest medical examiner and Will’s lover—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 victim—a woman—who has vanished . . . and who will die soon if she isn’t found.

Will is already compromised, because the site belongs to the city’s most popular citizen: a wealthy, powerful, and politically connected athlete protected by the world’s most expensive lawyers—a man who’s already gotten away with rape, despite Will’s exhaustive efforts to put him away.

But the worst is yet to come. Evidence soon links Will’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, friends—and even the suspects he pursues.-Goodreads

Review: Another excellent installment in the Will Trent series. Will's childhood friend/estranged wife Angie has been a polarizing figure throughout this series. Here we are given a close and personal look into her life. And I have to say...Angie might not be a great human being most of the time, but she sure is interesting to read about. I was shocked to find myself rooting for her to succeed in her shenanigans.

Dark, gritty, filled with dynamic characters. Loved it! 

Grade: 4.5/5
