**I received a copy of this book from the Publisher and author through Netgalley for an exchange of an honest review. That in no way has influenced my review. **
Well I have never read a Karen Slaughter book before and since this is the 7th book in the series I did find it a little hard to follow the characters and figure out who was who and what the heck was going on…That would be my bad! However, after reading the book I will def. go back and try to start from the beginning with book one.

Lena told her husband Jared that it was very bad luck to paint a nursery early and why she somewhat blames him for the loss of their baby. This is the only the start of Lena's problems. Lena is a detective on the Macon Police department and led a raid on a house hoping to catch a person named big whitey. , but sadly no one is taken alive.  Just days later Lena and Jared, who happens to be on the Macon PD but of the motorcycle division, are attacked in their own home.  Of course, this looks bad on Lena and everyone is trying to pin it on Lena. It does not help that Jared's stepmother is Dr. Sara Linton.
We then meet Will Trent.  Will is an undercover agent who also happens to be an ex-con. He is working undercover with some pretty bad people trying to work his way up the latter in the underworld to find Big Whitey, the head of an organization and someone they are not sure even exists at the moment.  Will's girlfriend is Dr. Sara Linton who just so happens to hate Lena. Will has been keeping secrets from Sara about his undercover work because if she found out that Will was helping Lena their relationship could be over.
I have a feeling that past books has gotten into the reason why Lena and Sara hate each other. This is another reason why I hate reading books out of order…

This story was told from 3 points of view, Will, Sara, and Lena's. Sara and will is in the present and there is plenty of emotion and suspense.
When the book finally got to the investigation, the book really did pick up. I love the fact that we were into double-dealing, human trafficking, violent crime and even **gasp, dirty cops** It really did get very exciting. It was a little depressing that there were not many clues to go off throughout the book
There are a lot of twists and turns and a lot of guessing who Big Whitey was.  I do not want to give away too much but I was surprised to discover who else was involved and how.
