"An impressive new landmark on the thriller map."--Val McDermid
"Hard to imagine that such a quiet shy girl as Slaughter harbors so fiendish a heart. In Kisscut, Georgia pediatrician Sara Linton and her ex, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, are caught up in an evil web along with Detective Lena Adams. It begins with a young girl who commits suicide by forcing Jeffrey to shoot her down. Horrified, he's desperate to determine why. Sara, not just the dead Jenny's doctor but also the town's coroner, does the autopsy and makes a horrible discovery: Jenny had been rudely castrated. Lena, wrestling with her own dark demons, joins in an investigation worthy of Andrew Vachs. Man, Kisscut is a killer book, savage but exciting, a strong follow-up to Slaughter's debut in Blindsighted."--Barbara Peters, The Poisoned Pen Bookstore
