January 2013 Book of the Month and eBook 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.

If you like Jilliane Hoffman you might also like to read books by Karin Slaughter, John Rickards and P J Tracy.

The Cutting Room by Jilliane Hoffman

The chilling new psychological thriller from the bestselling author of Retribution and Pretty Little Things 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...
