Kisscut | Karin Slaughter
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 Lintonthe town's pediatrician and medical examinerfinds 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 . . .

3 ⭐️- This second book in the Grant County suspense series is a humdinger if you‘re more on the squeamish side of the thriller scale (that would be me). It was a twisty ride but too violent for my tastes. I plan to continue with this series but I‘m thinking this might not be a good pick for little old me.

My review: http://bit.ly/Kisscut

Have you read this series? Are they all quite so graphic?

vivastory They are all very graphic, but I was more disturbed by this one than any of the others due to the child sex trafficking plotline 1mo
Bakingbookworm @vivastory I agree. It was hard to read at times. 1mo

Didn‘t leave me wanting as terribly for the next book as the first did (although, can‘t imagine it will be too long). The series itself is violent and graphic, and in some ways the 2nd novel was more disturbing than the first) I still like Karin Slaughter‘s new work better (the Good Daughter is why I sought out more of her work) but it‘s really detailed and terrifying and it sucks you right in. -while I‘m casting the series, I pick Demi for Lena)

This is the second book in the Grant County series. I liked this one a lot, the continuation of the relationship between Sara and Jeffrey, the development of Lena and Sara's family. This was pretty graphic, so some readers may be triggered, but it was a well-done psychological thriller. I can't wait to read the third one (once the other patron returns it to the library - late!)

5feet.of.fury The relationship dynamics were great in this one! (And yeah, aside from that it‘s pretty disturbing) 3mo

Karin Slaughter‘s books are quite graphic but I can‘t stop reading them. The storylines are suspenseful and keep you guessing. I also love the characters who are in the Grant County series. Also love that she‘s a Georgia girl 😍

I‘m loving this series so far. I even made sure to put a hold on the next one a couple days ago and it came in! This book had me turning the pages so quickly. It is a little graphic so I wouldn‘t recommend it for everyone. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I am restricting myself to one Slaughter a month. They are pretty addictive despite the repulsive details, and the horrible, almost unimaginable things that happen in this book. You need a strong stomach for these books. But I have and I am enjoying them and I love the twists and the main characters.

Tanisha_A Hi Barbara! Hope you are doing well! I will be in Amsterdam in a few days, and I really wish to see Anne Frank House. What do you suggest, booking the ticket online, or is it just easier to buy right outside? 1y
BarbaraBB @Tanisha_A Hi Tanisha, you should buy your tickets online, I even think it isn‘t possible any longer to buy them upon arrival. And it‘s always so busy, so make sure you have them. I hope you‘ll have a great time in Amsterdam and if you need to know anything else, I‘m glad to be of help! 😘 1y
Tanisha_A @BarbaraBB That is super helpful! Will book it online then. Yessss, I may ask you more questions later! 💗 1y

No surprise here, I continue to be completely obsessed with Karin Slaughter's books! I'm consistently blown away by her seemingly effortless ability to navigate brutal crimes and complex, flawed characters in a way that keeps you engaged and guessing the entire time. Not for the faint of heart, but MAN is it riveting stuff.

Currently torn between wanting to read all of her books now and wanting to pace myself 🤔

Lmstraubie That's such a tough call. I read the whole Maisie Dobbs series pretty much back to back because I couldn't get enough and then was so sad when I was done. 😆 1y
Soubhiville Great photo! 1y
laundry_piles I'm reading an ARC of her new book and it's SO good so far! I can never pace myself when I find an author I love. I have to read everything! 1y

Slaughter has delivered another gripping story with depraved individuals. Seriously wonder how people sink so low to hurt children. Will need something light next.

Slaughter does it again with her deep dive into the disturbing subjects no one wants to acknowledge. This is the second in the Grant County series. If you are looking for a good suspense thriller and can get through the gut wrenching subject matter, these are for you.

Just finished this second book in the Grant County series on audio and it was excellent. Enjoying my first attempt at audiopuzzling as well (Did I just make up a new word?!?)🤓

Lizpixie Nope, I‘ve been using it for awhile now! I love it so much, it‘s so relaxing(though I do my puzzles on my iPad, don‘t need a table & no chance of lost pieces!)💕 And I highly approve of your book choice, Karin Slaughter is the bomb.💣 (edited) 2y

I‘ve recently started reading Karin Slaughter‘s series of books and I am a little bit addicted! I finished this one last night and it was up to her usual high standard. As with all her books the violence was brutal and this one was particularly horrible to read at times because of the very dark subject matter but I think she‘s a fantastic writer and I raced through this in two days ! Now onto the next one !

TheDoubleLetterThief An author that keeps coming up for me, but am yet to try. Might have to now! 2y
Christine11 @TheDoubleLetterThief I would definitely recommend giving her a try ! This year is the first I‘ve been reading her books and I love them 😍 just prepare yourself for the brutality! 😊 2y

After reading 3 Karin Slaughter books (+1 novella), I'm definitely a fangirl. I could NOT put this book down. It's hard to read in some places because it is graphic but it is so thrilling and intense. Nothing is gratuitous, everything has a place in the story.

I love how complex Sara, Jeffrey, and Lena are. I love their complicated relationships. I really care about these three, even outside of their difficult jobs, and I want them to be happy.

A pick, though hard to listen to due to the subject matter of the crimes & the way that Slaughter writes them. I'm pretty sure I don't want to move to Grant County.😱I liked the narration-Kathleen Early was good w/the characters. Not your series if you can't do graphic/very dark, but if you can, Slaughter does a great job w/her books. Now if I can get my library to get book 3 on audio-what's up w/ just having random books in a series on audio?!☹️

Bookzombie That drives me crazy at my library too. (edited) 2y

#JuneTunz #CruelSummer Catching up on yesterday's photo challenges. The August heat makes for a very cruel summer in Grant County 🔥but life in Heartsdale, Georgia, seems pretty cruel at least in terms of the crimes that happen here. This is the 2nd book in the series-listening to the audiobook currently-& some very twisted stuff happens in this small Southern town.😱 On a less twisty note, this song totally takes me back to summer in the 80s.👍😀

Arisner I adore this series! Once you finish Grant County, I hope you continue on with the Will Trent series. Loooove it so much! 2y

Stopped at the coffeeshop on my way back from a morning meeting for a working brunch of avocado toast with spicy garlic aioli and cold brew coffee with coconut milk, while doing a little audio slide-finalizing for the workshop I'm facilitating tomorrow. Listening to the 2nd book in the Grant County series--I'm slowly working my way through them. 📚👍

I noticed I hit my goal for the year several books ago! That's always exciting, but now it seems like I have hit a slump. Except for an audio, I haven't finished anything since the first few days of October. I just don't feel motivated to pick up anything or read for very long. I know it will pass but it makes me feel off, if you know what I mean. 😕

James Cool, Congrats! Hope your slump ends with a really good book. 3y

Grant County series #2 - This was unputdownable and #3 is already on hold. The story was gripping and sometimes painful to listen to. The crimes committed are heinous and it's hard to say I enjoyed it as the subject matter is not easy. I did, it's just weird to say. I seem to have a love/dislike situation with the regular characters but not in a way that makes me not want to continue with the series. Audio. 4⭐️

[DELETED] 2232195534 I love Karin Slaughter's books. All of them. But they are not for everyone. One of my mystery book group members is still traumatized or so she say. Love Will Trent and if you haven't met him yet- well just wait! 😱 3y
