A couple of blocks would look similar to a third world neighborhood; then there would be a slqughter or two of comfortable middle-class homes, with nice cars and mowed lawns.

Sara and Jeffrey meet at the ice skating rink for a date, and they make plans for him to sleep over. Some, but only some, people thought family abuse was immoral, but after all, it was a biblical commandment for men to ‘correct’ their women kisscur children.

Kisscu was the hardest Slaughter book that I’ve read to date because it deals with child pornography and child abuse. View all 5 comments.

I hope the interactions between Jeffrey and Sara kissccut least do improve in future books. This book begins in a skating rink and ends with a shooting that will haunt Jeffrey the entire book. My childhood was a ruin similar to the victims in this book.

The Daily Tay Just blogging it out. I had been walking holding my mother’s hand. This was suspenseful, thrilling and at the same time, made me want to shower when I had to admit to myself that I really enjoyed this book. Sep 03, Janet slaughyer it really liked it.

Kisscut (Grant County, #2) by Karin Slaughter

Using kizscut sutures instead of the usual baseball stitches, Sara had sewn the paper thin flesh back together into the semblance of a child. Based on my experience with books 1 and 2, the stationary characters in this series have an ongoing storyline that may be enjoyed best by reading in order. Then a young girl is abducted, and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to an even more brutal crime.


I didn’t kagin the bad guy coming until Jeff Tolliver did – and it gave me the creeps, as was surely intended. With Lacey being held captive somewhere and Mark comatose will Jeffrey be able to find the ringleaders and bring them down?

Book Review: Kisscut (Karin Slaughter) – Life of this city girl

For this part of the book, if you’ve read any three self-help manuals dealing with this sort of trauma not saying which, spoilers and alleverything here is going to look very, very familiar.

I’m not sure I can provide even the barest skeleton of a plot synopsis without giving the game away here. If it is too terrible to contemplate, no one will know about either your lack of courage or belief or if you were triggered. To view it, click here. There is something in Mark that immediately calls to Lena, but she is unsure what it is.

I deserved it for being in the wrong somehow, even if I had no clue, or “stay out of his way” -translation: But, if you like a tale told through gifs, check out part two! Plus, there are gruesome and absolutely evil crimes that they will all struggle to deal with and evil perpetrators who are able to run rings around the investigative team. It was unincorporated but urban. Again Slaughter has created a character driven novel that garners empathy and hatred depending on who you’re reading about.


While I usually like that when it is firmly tied to the reality the author is painting, this one seemed like a runaway train. Just like Blindsighted, Kisscut reveals to us some of the worst things humankind can offer. On the south side of Evergreen Gulch district across a street the real city began; but on my street, the north side, the Gulch had blocks of empty grassy fields between blocks of houses, some that were kept up and some that were wrecked.

Book Review: Kisscut (Karin Slaughter)

I have a feeling that Slaughter is just getting warmed up with this series. Abusers almost never admit to abusing anyone, so often the truth is only word against slaughtr.

It was only decades later, when we survivors began to talk openly about it, we learned exactly how common abuse and rape was in the neighborhood.

If so, you’re reading the wrong reviewer, because I give points off for that sort of behavior in a writer. For the past three-and-a-half hours, Sara had tried to reassemble the baby from the parts Jenny Weaver had left in the bathroom and in the red book bag they found in the trash by the video game room. Thoughts on Cinema, TV and Life! Aptly named novelist Slaughter Blindsighted brings back her horribly scarred cast of Grant County, Ga.
