The multilated body offers few clues and the college authorities are eager to avoid a scandal but for Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, things don't add up. As Jeffrey pursues the sadistic killer, he discovers that ex-police detective Lena Adams, now a security guard on campus, may be in possession of crucial information.

I've long been a fan of the Will Trent series. Lately I've been on a Karin Slaughter binge, getting to her stand alones and starting the Grant series. The first two were pretty good, but this one just got on my nerves. It's at a point where you just say this isn't going to happen, especially is this lazy, small town. The Trent series, however, is varied on the crimes and mysteries tackled. I'm pretty sure there isn't even ritualistic the requisite serial killer in the Atlanta one.

My biggest pet peeve in this series is the characters, though. I really don't care for any of them. Sara Linton is so much better in Atlanta. Ole Jeff is about the most annoying cop I've met in a book and is just a complete jerk here.

But having said all this, I'll probably try to finish the series. They're really easy to listen to on audio while driving or down time at work. The best thing about the audio books is they were re-recorded by Kathleen Early, who has narrated the newer books for Slaughter. I'm not sure who it was originally, but her bumpkin twang was annoying and insulting to this southerner. ( )

I really like the grant county series and early books a lot ( )

"Een sterk verhaal gecombineerd met de emoties van de verschillende personages en een goede vaart in het boek. Kortom, een lichte koude huivering was een toppertje van een boek en is absoluut een aanrader om te lezen!"

A FAINT COLD FEAR is the third book in a series by Karin Slaughter. I, however, read it out of order. And I enjoyed it. That is one of my tests of whether an author is a good writer: can their books in a series also be read and enjoyed as standalones? Slaughter passes my test.

Because I had read the first book in this series, I was already familiar with the main characters: the chief of police in a small town in Georgia; his ex-wife, a doctor; and his former employee who is now in Security for the college in this town. Put simply, college Security, headed by a creepy man, and his new employee, Lena, the former police detective, have called the police to come to the scene of a crime at the college. Someone has either committed suicide or was murdered. Soon other murders occur as well, and the police race to solve these and prevent more.

Jeffrey, the Chief of Police, suspects that Lena knows more than she is saying. Unfortunately, Lena has anger issues and is not forthcoming when police question her. Sara, Jeffrey‘s ex-wife and the medical examiner in town, sometimes acts as a buffer between them. She is seeing Jeffrey again but is not ready to remarry him.

Of course, there are many side stories involving others in town. These add mysteries to the main story.

Although I enjoyed this book as a whole, I did not enjoy Lena‘s anger issues and misbehavior. I hope these do not continue to be a problem later in the series. ( )

Love this author. Great series. I can't believe there are only 3 books left in this series. ( )
