After That Night: A Will Trent Thriller (Will Trent, 11)

We rated this book:


Warning: this book has intense scenes which may be too much for those who are sensitive to violence against women.

While working in the ER one evening, Dr. Sara Linton treats a young woman who was brutally attacked. While trying to save her, she makes a promise that she will find out who attacked her and bring them to justice. Then, a chance encounter flips her world upside down and brings back painful memories of a sexual assault she survived fifteen years ago. Sara, along with her fiancé FBI Agent Will Trent, and his partner Faith, begin an off the books investigation into the connection between the two assaults. But will they find enough evidence to open an official investigation before they all get fired?

This is a dark police procedural with medical themes and some twists and turns you won’t see coming. The characters are multifaceted and full of heart. Even though this is part of a series, it was a good stand alone novel. I have not read the other books and did not feel lost at all. I really enjoyed the writing and the first chapter grabbed my attention and held it right to the end. I would recommend this to anyone who likes crime thrillers.
