Sara's ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, leads the investigation -- a trail of terror that grows increasingly macabre when another local woman is found crucified a few days later. But he's got more than a sadistic serial killer on his hands, for the county's sole female detective, Lena Adams -- the first victim's sister -- want to serve her own justice.
But it is Sara who holds the key to finding the killer. A secret from her past could unmask the brilliantly malevolent psychopath .. or mean her death.
Hi everyone! After not posting for more than two years, I'm not sure if anyone is even reading this. This blog is basically just for myself anyway. I am now graduated from school and got a job right after. I now have time to read and (hopefully) post some reviews occasionally.
A co-worker recently got me hooked on Karin Slaughter. I was never a crime/mystery book reader, but I'm open to reading anything. After finishing the first Grant County book (and the next three), I couldn't get enough of them. I am on the second to the last book of the series. Her next series is Will Trent, which I plan to read.
One resounding base of Slaughter's books (at least her first series), is rape. I'm not thrilled about this, but the books do have other baselines. Her books are very easy to read and understand. I love the medical aspect of the books as well. These books are not for the squeamish, as some chapters include blown off heads and all that goo.
I look forward to posting again after a very long break, and maybe reading some of your comments!
