4 out of 5 (1 rating)


The second Grant County novel, from the No. 1 Bestseller. When a teenage quarrel in the small town of Heartsdale explodes into a deadly shoot-out, Sara Linton - paediatrician and medical examiner - finds herself entangled in a horrific tragedy. And what seems at first to be a terrible but individual catastrophe proves to have wider implications when the autopsy reveals evidence of long-term abuse and ritualistic self-mutilation.

Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver start to investigate, but 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. And unless Sara and Jeffrey can uncover the deadly secrets the children hide, it's going to happen again...

Review by
Kisscut4 StarsSeries note: This is book #2 in Slaughter’s Grant County series and there are numerous references to events in the first book.When an altercation between teenagers in a skating rink parking lot ends in tragedy, Grant County medical examiner, Sara Linton, and her ex-husband, Chief of Police, Jeffrey Tolliver, are shocked and disturbed by the true nature of the crime and the fact that evil is lurking in their small and seemingly innocuous town. The plot is extremely disturbing and horrific. Thankfully, there isn’t too much description of the actual abuse otherwise I might have had to DNF. The story itself is compelling and the message that appearances can be deceiving and we can never really know the people around us is an important one.The real problem with this book is the characterization. None of the characters are likable or sympathetic not even the so-called protagonists, Jeffrey, Sara and Lena, who do and say very hurtful things to one another and to others. The only character to come across as a good person with a good heart is Hank, Lena’s uncle. I’m amazed that he was willing to put up with her. All in all, Kisscut is a well-written and thought provoking book but not for the faint of heart.
