Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Only her third novel but her success grows and grows. The main character remains Sara Linton, medical examiner in the small town of Heartsdale, this time on the case of an apparent suicide on the local college campus - but for Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, things don't add up. Strong, real characters and a great plot.

If you like Karin Slaughter you might also like to read books by James Lee Burke, Dennis Lehane and R. J. Ellory.

A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride.

Synopsis

A Faint Cold Fear by Karin Slaughter

In the coldly captivating tradition of Cornwell and Reichs, Slaughter (Blindsighted; Kisscut) returns to Grant County, Ga., to offer a third installment in the adventures of smalltown pediatrician and part-time medical examiner Sara Linton. Called in to investigate the apparent suicide of a male Grant Tech student, Sara brings along her pregnant sister, Tessa, who wanders away from the scene and is brutally attacked. The distraught Sara must work side by side with her ex-husband, Det. Jeffrey Tolliver, whom she loves despite his past infidelity, but it's Lena Adams, formerly a cop and now a campus security guard, whose story the novel follows most closely. Still mourning the murder of her sister and recovering from her own torture and rape by the same man, Lena is looked on with suspicion by her ex-boss, Jeffrey. With reason: she's hiding a few key facts. The dead boy's mother is her therapist and Lena is involved with an abusive young man with a shady past. Campus gossip Richard Carter further confuses investigators; meanwhile, police discover the bodies of two more students, their deaths potentially suicides but more likely murder. Slaughter provides grisly variations on the themes of sibling rivalry, sexual abuse and campus politics in a story not for the faint of heart. Readers who can stomach gruesome details and like fitting together multiple stories of physical and psychological abuse will savor the way Slaughter can evoke sympathy for perverse, even criminal, behavior by tracing its origins, and those who make it through the complexities and the gore will be rewarded with a satisfyingly chilling ending.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
