Book Review: Kisscut (Karin Slaughter)

She could not help but think there was something erotic in the gesture. Apr 27, Donna rated it liked it Shelves: The Grant County series is shaping up to be a real good one and I hope every book can hold it’s own Lena and Jeffrey leave without any clear answers.

Kisscut (Grant County, #2) by Karin Slaughter

Kisscut, by Karin Slaughter. Faith believed her sister was an evil whore. Views Read Edit View history. I’m pulling for Lena but I know she’s going to disappoint me times throughout this series. Karin Slaughter doesn’t sugar coat depravity. You spaughter choose privately to believe it can happen or not, since it’s simply a fictional novel.


My limited experience with female authors in this genre, up to then, were stories that were not very violent or shocking, and left me feeling that they were more focused on a love story for the 5 STARS It is a very rare and precious thing when you read a story that makes enough impact to change you as a person.

A ‘technical’ high school diploma would not get them into college – no foreign language, no extra years of science or math. The writing and the plot kept my attention one-hundred percent. Kisscut is the second book in the Grant County series by author Karin Slaughter.

She’s waiting on Jeffrey, her ex-husband whom she has feelings for to meet them there when she makes a gruesome discovery in the restroom.

I criticize instead the author’s strategy to arise, at the beginning of the story, some very heavy questions that in the end are not going to be answered in a satisfying way. I like Sara, I really like this character.

It’s about child sexual abuse. Today, I want to share my inside view.

Even as she contemplates quitting the police, the only thing that provides her with relief is work, and as she immerses herself more and deeper into the case she finds an uncomfortable feeling of identification with one of its most damaged victims. I guess I was an evil tot from birth, like the Bible said original sin. But then, I’m not religious. My own biggest remaining issues with what happened, still setting me off into rants today, are people who rely on a god to fix it all or who believe if god didn’t fix the problem it must be you were blocking god or it’s all a mystery of god’s divine will, or those who think it happens only when bad people are being bad but it never happens when people are good or Republican Party voters.


I hate to tear down my idols but I believe that Slaughter may be better than all the rest. A couple of blocks would look similar to a third world neighborhood; then there would be a block or two of comfortable middle-class homes, with nice cars and mowed lawns. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

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 could find where they were hiding.

I’m still shuddering weeks after reading The Good Daughter. I’m not accusing Slaughter of plagiarism by any means, but come on. You are commenting using your Facebook account.

Sara heads into the bathroom and makes a gruesome discovery. Then a young girl is abducted, and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to slakghter even more brutal crime.

Then there’s the subplot, presumably I didn’t realize this was the second in a series, and thus didn’t read the first book before reading this—oops carried over from the previous book, about a sheriff’s deputy struggling to get her life back in order after a traumatic ordeal.

I hope at some point she asked for God’s forgiveness.
