The Cutting Room

LoveReading View on The Cutting Room

July 2012 Book of the Month.

This is a gritty, graphic, disturbing psychological thriller and it is very good. A girl is abducted and tortured in New York, another is found horribly mutilated and left in a dumpster in Miami seemingly unrelated; but a Miami policeman and attorney find a lead which hints at something altogether worse. Required reading for any fan of Patricia Cornwell, Kathy Reichs or Karin Slaughter.

The Cutting Room Synopsis

THEY WATCH. The body of a student who went missing from a Florida nightclub is found in a dumpster. A horrifying scene, but nothing compared to what she had to endure before her murder. She was drugged and tortured -- all broadcast live for the twisted pleasure of a snuff club. THEY WAIT. Detective Manny Alvarez works the homicide alongside young hotshot Assistant State Attorney Daria DeBianchi. The media spotlight shines on the accused, a privileged playboy seen leaving the club with the victim. But without cast-iron evidence, Daria and Manny must dig deeper to crack the case. THEY TAKE WHAT THEY WANT. The investigation exposes a terrifying connection between numerous unsolved murders and abductions stretching across the country. Their only lead is through notorious serial killer William Bantling, who knows the sinister society's secrets first-hand. But Bantling won't show his hand for free -- he wants off Death Row. For Manny and Daria, the nightmare is just beginning. And the only thing more devastating than this case's past is what lies ahead!
