THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME!!! I really enjoy this author. The plot was great and it had many twist and turns . If you like a book that will keep you guessing until the end, here is the book for you.(Warning: This book does deal with sexual abuse of children and may not be for every reader.)

Loved the book. This is the first I've read of Karin Slaughter, and now I'm going to have to find her other books!

Set in a small town in Georgia, this is the second in a series about Grant County. Both novels are about horrific crimes against humans, and yet the reader feels involved with the main characters throughout. Both were hard to put down, and I'm going to find the third and fourth on PBS so I can request them, as well!

It is difficult to say I enjoyed a book that involves child abuse and pornography, but in the context of this book I did enjoy it. Slaughter's book intertwines both the âA' storyline, which in this case is the death of a young girl who has been horribly abused and mutilated, and the âB' storyline, which involves the relationship of Sara Linton and Jeffrey Tolliver who are divorced and trying to make sense of their relationship. There is also another story regarding Detective Lena Adams and her ongoing recovery from events that were introduced in book one of this series, Blindsighted. I found the development of these characters and their relationships really well written and convincing. The storyline involving the child abuse is not for the faint of heart. It is dark, grisly, graphic and shocking. At times it was difficult to read but I had to learn how the story turned out. In real life fashion not everything is tied up in a neat and happy ever after package. I have the next book in the series, A Faint Cold Fear, but I think I will need a little break before going on with the series.

I just got started reading this series, and this is the second one I've read. I'm hooked! The storyline was quite graphic and dealt with the sexual abuse of children, so beware, but it is a mesmerizing police thriller.

It is hard to say this is a really good book, but as it goes in the series, it is... but be warned, it is not for the faint of heart. While difficult to read at times, it is a good continuation of the characters and how they are dealing with their own personal issues, while trying to solve a crime against a teenage girl. A recommended read for those reading the Grant County series.

This thriller is extremely well written and has a good mystery to it, but it's subject material is way out there and the "police" are just as screwed up as the criminals, for me I figured it out early on, I did continue reading as the story was well written but I will not be picking up any more in this series, the characters are too flawed to root for anyone.

Great suspenseful books! If you love Patricia Cornwell, you'll like Karin Slaughter. I stayed up way too late reading this one!
