A Faint Cold Fear, released in 2003, is Book 3 in Karin Slaughter's Grant County series. The primary character in all books in the series is physician Sara Linton. Other repeating major characters in the Grant County series include Sara's ex-husband and current boyfriend Chief of Police Jeffrey Tolliver, cop Lena Adams who has great talent but tends to be self destructive, Sara's younger sister Tessa Linton who is pregnant in this book and is victim of a knife attack, Sara's mother Cathy Linton, and Sara's dad Eddie Linton. Sara is a pediatrician who also serves as medical examiner.
This book tends to be gory and the language is crude. The first murder of a local college student is set up by the killer to appear to be a suicide. Tessa Linton is then gravely injured in a knife attack and other murders follow. Sara and Jeffrey work together to find the person responsible for the crime wave.
For those not familiar with Karin Slaughter, her novels read like a combination of Lisa Gardner and Patricia Cornwell. Slaughter is one of favorite authors. All of her novels are set in Georgia.
Very highly recommended!

I couldn't even get into it because of the narrators tone at the end of EVERY sentence.

I have listened to these out of order, and I do prefer the Will Trent books, but this is good, with the usual frightening story line. Good Narrator. I will probably listen to all of the books eventually, even listening to them out of order does not affect the good writing.
