Book Review: Kisscut (Karin Slaughter) – Life of this city girl
Her soliloquy near the karih was extraordinary. There were a number of themes r The story begins at a skating rink where a young girl pulls a gun on another teen and a standoff involving the police ensues. There were a number of themes resonating strongly, most loudly was the fragility of children’s faith in the adults entrusted with their care.
The narration slaughtrr Clarinda Ross was a bit uneven, at times wonderful and at others, it felt like she was just slaughte. While the subject matter is tough, its honest and realistic presentment was compelling. I’m pulling for Lena but I know she’s going to disappoint me times throughout this series. And that’s impressive storytelling.

Second in the Grant County series, Kisscut kept me up over my weekend until I finished it, that is typical Karen Slaughter. She delivers on everything, great characters, intriguing mystery, and plenty of creepy criminals. This time it’s pedophile pornographers outed because one poor kid was pushed too far. 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.

I have a feeling that Slaughter is just getting warmed up with this series. I continue to root for Sara and Jeffery as they work towards solving yet more horrific murders. This book begins in a skating rink and ends with a shooting that will haunt Jeffrey the entire book.
Teenagers in a quarrel or is this a much bigger problem.
Book Review: Kisscut (Karin Slaughter)
In true Slaughter fashion, this is the beginning of a very HUGE kksscut that will get much worse before it gets better. Yet again Sara is at the heart of the issue.
Once a I have a feeling that Slaughter is just getting warmed up with this series. Once again this series begins with Sara being on the scene and heavily involved in the case as a pediatrician and a coroner. I like Sara, I really like this character. She is smart, strong, and savy. While performing an autopsy, Sara uncovers severe abuse and female mutilation. A young girl is kidnapped and even more brutal crimes are discovered.
Jeffrey and his officers are off to save the case. Jeffrey I also like a lot even though he has hurt Sara, it is evident he loves her. I like their story and how they work together and argue together to solve the case. Lena, Lena, Lena, sometimes I like her sometimes I want to take her and shake her.
Another gritty mystery sllaughter Slaughter. See more of my reviews at www. We have Sara and Jeffrey I don’t get them.
