Description

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...

Narrator issue

Why does the narrator over-pronounce all the ‘h’s’ in ‘wh’ words (why, where, whip, what)....it’s sooooo annoying.

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.

Gruesome

Okay, maybe it's just me but this book was a little over the top with twisted and not enough meat and potatoes to offset it. I love Karin Slaughters writing but this one had some female characters that I found indecisive and feeble, not at all what I am used to from her. The last quarter of the book really picked up and I can't wait to get to the next in this series. Warning: this story is not for anyone that can not handle revolting, despicable people that commit horrific crimes against children. I hope there is a special place in hell for these folks. As always, Kathleen Early did an excellent job narrating.

I couldn't stop listening.

Disturbing content yet tastefully written. Even if I only had 5min I had to listen.

Very good

This was a really good book. I gave it four stars because the ending was just okay. The narrator was so good. Definitely one of the better narrators that I've heard.

A mind bender & sad education

This subject is so hard for me to wrap my mind around. But the fact that it really happens is even harder. Abuse is abuse. Children who grow up being either physically or mentally abused have no reason to see this as anything but normal. And it’s the same with this type of abuse. I could go on with scathing comments but the ugly truth is it happens. Karin Slaughter really got into it with this one and I’m guessing she did some painful research as her foundation.

Ending??????

I'm intentionally keeping this review short and to the point. It's dificult to review this book without giving away the plot. I'll just say it kept my attention, (although I found most of the characters lacking depth) but the ending wasn't there... it just piddled out....... eh......
Can't say that I would recommend this unless you have nothing left to read.

Caution: Sensitive Subject Matter

This book is very well written although extremely disturbing. It is a sad thing to read what some people subject children to in this world! Bravo to Karin Slaughter for putting the facts out there. This will allow sane people to be made aware of what goes on in the craziness of a world we now live in!

Karin doesn't dissapoint.

This now makes my 5th slaughter book and as normal, it doesn't disappoint.
The storyline grips you right from the beginning and you stay at the 3dge of your seat all the way to the end.

Karin has a great way of snagging the reader within the first chapter and gripping you throughout the entire book.

These books can be brutal, so if you are squeamish then this isn't the series and books for you.

Slaughter books are the best crime genre.

Excellent narrator

I could listen to any book read by this voice. She could read me an instruction manual on how to install an air conditioner and I will be enraptured. She pulled me into the characters so well.
