*** stars. Ms. Slaughter combines two of her series in this mystery - it is number 4 in the Will Trent series and number 7 in the Grant county. When the body of a young woman is discovered beneath the icy waters of Lake Grant, a note left under a rock by the shore points to suicide. But within minutes, it becomes clear that this is murder, not suicide. Former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton - home for Thanksgiving after a long absence - finds herself unwittingly drawn into the case. The chief suspect is desperate to see her but when she arrives at the local police station she is met with a horrifying sight - he lies dead in his cell, the words 'Not me' scrawled across the walls. Yet he has signed a confession. Deeply suspicious of Lena Adams, the detective in charge, Sara immediately calls in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Shortly afterwards, Special Agent Will Trent is brought in to investigate. But he is immediately confronted with a wall of silence on the part of the police department. Grant County is a close-knit community with loyalties and ties that run deep. The only person who can tell the truth about what really happened is dead. Then murder strikes again. What can two young college sweethearts have been involved in that resulted in their deaths? Recommend
