did not like it

I would call this rape porn. Sara Linton is a pediatrician who doubles as a coroner is this small southern town. Other characters are Jeffery Tolliver, the chief of police, her ex who still has the hots for her, but slept around, and Sara Linton, his detective, whose blind twin is mercilessly raped at the opening scene, with disgusting detail about ejaculation in an open wound and fecal matter. Thus my term rape porn. It is fast paced, quick interest filled writing. But the point of view of the three main characters is not equally distributed, and do we really need one of them to be brutally raped with forensic details of the ravage of the corpses. A fine line between misogyny and rage at rape.
