Beyond Reach

Reading period: 16–17 August, 2010

Dr. Sara Linton and her husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, travel to a small Georgia town to find out why Jeffrey’s detective, Lena Adams, has been found beside a burnt-out car with a corpse. They uncover a lot of dirty secrets in Reese, including neo-Nazis and dru­grun­ning.

I found the plot gripping but also unpleasant. Slaughter seems to enjoy torturing her characters.
