Now let me explain, the subject matter of this book was painful and at time sickening to read. It was only decades later, when we survivors began to talk openly about it, we learned exactly how common abuse and rape was in the neighborhood. By the end, I couldn’t believe my feelings of sympathy for her, an xlaughter feat.

I didn’t see the bad guy coming until Jeff Tolliver did – and it gave me the creeps, as was surely intended. This is the second book in the Grant County series. My limited experience with female authors in this genre, up to then, were stories that were not very violent or shocking, and left me feeling that they were more focused on a love story for the 5 STARS It is a very rare and precious thing when you read a story that makes enough impact to change you as a person.

The more I read of Karin Slaughter the more I enjoy, and I personally feel she outstrips Patrcia Cornwell by far because she can actually write.

I love Karin Slaughters writing but this one had some female characters that I found indecisive and feeble, not at all what I am used to from her. Her biopsy on Jenny reveals horrific mutilation, and Sara and Jeffrey need to find out what happened to Jenny and why she so desperately wanted to kill Mark Patterson.


Kisscut is the second book in the Grant County Series. He wants her to talk to a Pastor in their church, Dave Fine, to get some counselling but she constantly finds excuses to not go. May 06, Jean rated it really liked it. This author seems to do “over the top”well.


Don’t misunderstand, this book is still stellar, but it was damned hard to read. They are open about the fact that Mark attacked his sister Lacey, who is away until the shooting drama is resolved, and that the police had to intervene.

She is still suicidal, more a frightened girl than tough female cop and yet you root for her. What seemed at first to be a terrible but individual catastrophe proves to have wider implications. Then a young girl is abducted, and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to an even more brutal crime, one far more shocking than anyone could have imagined.

But finish it I did. But she succeeded in instilling the fear of god in every one of her children, who frequently ‘share’ with me on Facebook various sayings, truisms and quotations from the Bible. On the other hand, I’m finding I don’t care for some of her main characters I don’t think it’s just me – she has written them as extremely unsympathetic and the way she tells her stories is beginning to rub me wrong.

My childhood was a ruin similar to the victims in this book. Worthy only of mention in the last chapter, when the other girl victim does a little monologue wrapping up all the loose ends that Dr. In the end, Sara had finally accepted that her self-appointed task was an exercise in futility. At the same time, Jeffrey is put into the worst position ever and ends up doing the unthinkable. Jeffrey and his officers are off to save the case.

I’m still shuddering weeks after reading The Good Daughter. Sara Linton and her ex-husband finally seem to be moving on from his infidelity.

Sara, Jeffrey and Lena. He had widened his repertoire of punishments by then, so I got more than a kicking.

Kisscut (Grant County, #2) by Karin Slaughter

Saturday night dates at the skating rink have been a tradition in the small southern town of Heartsdale slaugghter as long as anyone can remember.

I like Sara, I really like this character.

In my opinion, it’s just as good as her epic debut, but I had to take off a star based on personal enjoyment. Discover what to read next. The interview starts off well, with Lena getting the trademark county sympathy from Kissckt for her rape ordeal. Books On Tape Availability: Male abusers who abused the family were not either offenders or criminals by any definition.


The main thrust of the story involved a child pornography ring and a couple of really bad people running it. I’m pulling for Lena but I know she’s going to disappoint me times throughout this series.

Refresh and try again. Yet again Sara is at the heart of the issue. Bearing in mind that this is indeed Slaughter, it is not for kisscuy faint hearted. I criticize instead the author’s strategy to arise, at the beginning of the story, some very heavy questions that in the end are not going to be answered in a satisfying way. Just when I thought it couldn’t get worse, I was all like: This page was last edited on 2 Septemberat Slaughter pulls no punches and spares no emotion but for me personally this lacked kiscsut gripping tension of Blindsighted as I had guessed the villains early as I am sure many readers would have done.

Book Review: Kisscut (Karin Slaughter)

I kissctu almost got a total convert I am sure. Even as she contemplates quitting the police, the only thing that provides her with relief is work, and kidscut she immerses herself more and deeper into the case she finds an uncomfortable feeling of identification with one of its most damaged victims.

Saturday night dates at the skating rink have been a tradition in the small southern town of Heartsdale for as long as anyone can remember, but when a teenage quarrel explodes into a deadly shoot-out, Sara Linton–the town’s pediatrician and medical examiner–finds herself entangled in a terrible tragedy.

The families turn their backs. Reading a dramatic dark mystery by yourself is mostly a nonjudgmental experience, and socially private. Open Preview See a Problem?
