#117. Kisscut

Kisscut by Karin Slaughter
Second of the Grant County books


Pages: 422
Finished: Nov. 19, 2007
Reason for Reading: next in the series.
First Published: 2002
Genre: forensic thriller
Rating: 5/5

First Sentence:

"Dancing Queen," Sara Linton mumbled with the music as she made her way around the skating rink.

Comments: This is a chilling thriller that follows a case of self-mutilation, child abuse and child pornography. The book is riveting, it was one that I could not put down but was also an incredibly dark and gloomy read. I was hooked from the first page. This book is definitely a sequel to Blindisghted and I wouldn't recommend this without having read the first. The characters are very well developed with their stories from the first book being continued in this one. I'm really looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

  2. Not me! Sounds horribly depressing. I hate to think that there are people out there preying on children.

  3. stephanie, she is fantastic! I can't believe I've waited this long to read her.

    carrie, this book is definately not for everyone. It's a hard subject to read about.
