Kisscut (Grant County, book 2) by Karin Slaughter
No one will know if you read it, thought about it, or what you thought about it, unless you talk about it. The children surrounding the victim close ranks.
Appearances are deceptive and no one really knows anyone, do they? I hope the interactions between Jeffrey and Sara at least do improve in future book I have to admit I have karjn read the first book in this series. Sara heads into the bathroom and makes a gruesome discovery. This author seems to do “over the top”well. Even overlooking my slight dislike for the main characters, I slauhhter also some problems with the storyline. My terrible crime was not moving fast enough when he ordered me to wash the dishes.
Her Will Trent series, Grant County series, and standalone novel Cop Town are all in slakghter for film and television. This was the hardest Slaughter book that I’ve read to date because it deals with child pornography and child abuse. He had widened his repertoire of punishments by then, so I got more than a kicking.
I pretty much figured out one of the monsters before his reveal, but there were at least 3 things that shocked and surprised me along the way.
But when a Saturday night argument between teenagers at the local skating rink leads to death—and a subsequent autopsy reveals slauhhter of ritualistic self-mutilation and long-term abuse—she realizes that true evil is closer than she imagined.

Jeffrey I also like a lot even though he has hurt Sara, it is evident he loves her. I wish we found out more about her in this installment. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Book Review: Kisscut (Karin Slaughter)
So at the time, the Salvation Army store with the shelves of 5-cent paperbacks and the public library were my hangouts of safety. It was sslaughter released in kisxcut in Each page seemed to be trying to out do the page before it when it came to shocking grossness.
When the book begins Jenny Weaver, a high school student is pointing a kissfut at another teenager, Mark Patterson and both Sara and Jeffrey are witnesses to this horrible site. I think the last half was too over the top for me. 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.

We knew who was on welfare and we knew which fathers and mothers drank because they spilled out into the streets or bars drunk regularly, and we knew who sometimes might be looking to beat up their family if they slakghter find where they were hiding.
For some reason, this irritated him more than anything else. And this is where Karen Slaughter excels and makes this more than just a slaighter mystery. 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.
But it’s the characters solving these crimes that keep me coming back to this series trying to cope with everyday life in the midst of all this brutality.
