    DescriptionWhen 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 quote
    "A complex and confident thriller in which character goes deep" Daily Mirror "With Blindsighted, Karin Slaughter left a great many thriller writers looking anxiously over their shoulders. With Kisscut, she leaves most of them behind" -- John Connolly "A fast-paced and unsettling story ... A compelling and fluid read." Daily Telegraph
    Review text
    This follow-up to Blindsighted by the appropriately named Slaughter is definitely not for the faint-hearted. It's a horrifying, atrocious and completely gripping crime novel of a very modern variety. Again, the leading characters are paediatrician Sara Linton and Detective Lena Adams. The August heat is creating a mini-crime wave in Heartsdale, a small town in South Georgia. Fights are breaking out all over town, including at the local skating rink, where Sara is on a date with her ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver. But this particular fight has far worse implications than anybody could imagine possible. A 13-year-old girl is shot dead and a story unfolds of such horror that it is sometimes difficult to go on reading the book. Sara, Jeffrey and Lena cannot seem to break the impenetrable ranks of the dead girl's friends and family, until another girl is kidnapped and the truth is slowly revealed. It's hard to describe the storyline without giving too much away, but suffice it to say that pregnancy, self-abuse, ritual mutilation and religion are all involved. If it was not written so well it would be easy to dismiss Slaughter's work as sensationalist. But her characters are real, interesting people and the plot is so absorbing that even at its most horrific you won't be able to put it down. (Kirkus UK)
