Sara Linton, town pediatrician and part time coroner, is enjoying an evening at the local skating rink when tragedy strikes. Before the evening is over, she
will perform an autopsy on a young teenager and an abandoned infant.
Sara’s ex, town police chief Jeffrey Tolliver,
who has gone to the skating rink as well to meet and try to woo his ex-wife back into his arms,
is instead forced to shoot and kill a young girl threatening others with a gun.
So begins a spellbinding story of secrets, perversions and murder. While some readers may find the subject matter of child pornography distasteful and disturbing,
Slaughter, in her second novel, approaches the glum reality with a no-holds
barred exploration of the psyche of perpetrators driven by twisted desires.
Strong characters, riveting dialog and fast-paced narrative provide an exciting and, at the same time, dreadful journey through an investigation that rips a town apart until the reader is not longer certain of who the good guys are.
This novel is riddled with unexpected twists, gritty scenes and a handful of
unsavory characters -- readers, beware. Kisscut offers exhilarating and explosive suspense that compels the reader to keep turning the pages until the very last scene.
