First Sentence:

Sara Linton stared at the entrance to the Dairy Queen, watching her very pregnant sister walk out with a cup of chocolate-covered ice cream in each hand.

Comments: College students appear to be committing suicide at an alarming rate, and their deaths are not your ordinary suicides. In amongst the suicides a young woman is brutally attacked not far from the scene of a suicide. How are the two related? Grant County just keeps getting better and better! Lots and lots of unexpected events happen in the lives of our main characters. I'm really intrigued as to where they will go in the next book. The case was unusual with just the right amount of gruesomeness as I've come to expect from Slaughter. A thrilling, fast-paced read with intriguing characters. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.


  1. Fine. You've sold me on Karin Slaughter. Looks like I need to pick up the first book in her series!! (This is a series, isn't it??)

  2. Oh, yes, it is a series. There are only 6 so far though. It looks like she's writing one a year. The first one you want to read is "Blindsighted" and it is awesome. You're gonna love it!
