Special Agents Shaw and McGregor handle the routine cases nowadays, which is just the way Shaw likes it. She’s pushing 40 and a borderline burnout, the ghastly memories of her last investigation still clinging like shadows. McGregor is younger, more dedicated, hanging onto some measure of idealism despite whatever the world might throw at him. Shaw and McGregor conduct the most crucial interrogation of their FBI careers amongst a tale of unimaginable, unequaled depravity that may provide the clues the two agents need to make sense of their grim surroundings.

A Bit Of My Week In Reading
Currently Reading: The Fragility of Bodies by Sergio Olguin, we do not get enough Latinx crime translations so I’m really excited for this book, which follows an investigating journalist. (TW suicide on page). And as soon as my audiobook for Ordinary Girls by Jaquira Díaz came in from Libro.fm (Think Audible but % of $ goes to your chosen indie bookstore) I pressed play. This memoir is my crime break for the week and the voice–both of author and narrator–are so amazing I want to spend the day with them. (TW attempted sexual assault)
