Publisher's Summary

Gillian Flynn says, "Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today."
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.
What seemed at first to be a horrific but individual catastrophe proves to have wider implications. The autopsy reveals evidence of long-term abuse, of ritualistic self -mutilation, but when Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver start to investigate, they are frustrated at every turn.
The children surrounding the victim close ranks. The families turn their backs. 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. Meanwhile, detective Lena Adams, still recovering from her sister's death and her own brutal attack, finds herself drawn to a young man who might hold the answers. But unless Lena, Sara, and Jeffrey can uncover the deadly secrets the children hide, it's going to happen again...

Thrilling and Disturbing

Hard to believe sickening crimes like this happen every day. I stayed up all night to finish it. I definitely recommend the Grant County series to graffic crime enthusiasts. I will definitely keep adding to my Karin Slaughter library.

The narrator did a great job, as usual. Especially the hospital scene where Lena goes into detail about what horrors happened to her in the last book (read the full series in order!).

Karin Slaughter is terrific

I have read 4 of Karin's books and love each one; Kisscut is no exception. The story held my attention from beginning to end; its suspense made me keep sneaking in a few minutes while in the car, shopping, cooking dinner, every chance I got.

I also thought Kathleen Early was excellent. She portrayed the various characters with skill and acting prowess.

I am so looking forward to my next listen of Karin's work from my wish list.
