This is the 6th and last book of the Grant County Series, and OMG it was so gut wrenching, even though I was prepared for it because I read the Will Trent Series first. You will not want to do this because there are major spoilers, make sure you read this series first. If you haven't read this series yet I highly recommend it. It is so good. I will admit though that this series is not for the faint of heart.

WOW! I feel like I have been hit by a freight train - that's how fast paced this book was. But it was good - really good.

Lena has a disposition which, more often than not, lands her in trouble. But never before like this.....

Slaughter must be one of the best ever writers. I even love her acknowledgements - 'Sue Kurylowicz was the winner of the 'Get Slaughtered' contest, granting her the dubious honour of having her name appear in this book. Sue, honey, you DID ask to be bad....' and It's not man

I don’t know how to review this book. I have to give it full marks, even though every cell in my body screams at me not to.
Sara Linton and Jeffrey Tolliver are well known to Slaughter’s fans. Slaughter has taken the American crime forensic genre and made it her own.
Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs are running to stand still to keep up with her.
They can’t. They won’t. No-one will.
It takes a special author to shock a reader for 7 sequential books. Slaughter does it without flinching and without

Words sort of fail me right now. The entire book is one huge tension-filled ride and just when you think it's safe to breathe...the world collapses.

I think that's all I'll say about the book. It's brilliantly written, no matter how upset I am about the series end.

Let's just say if I had been heavily invested in these books and these characters, this author would probably have lost a fan for life. (view spoiler)

He was smiling again, that half-smile that could infuriate her and make her love him at the same time.

Ah, well, back to Will Trent and to see how that all pans out.

In this final addition to the, "Grant County" series, Lena leads Jeffery and Sarah into a deadly situation and as usual she is in over her head. Jeffery knows that Lena took a trip to her home town to find out why she had been unable to reach her uncle who had in fact raised her and her sister. When Jeffery is unable to reach her days later, he and Sarah are off to the next county to see what gives. Upon their arrival they learn Lena is in the hospital and being held for questioning, her uncle i ...more

Great writing by Slaughter as always... but man, the ending!! I was literally heartbroken!! I cannot believe Karin Slaughter did that!!!

I highly recommend first time readers of this series (Grant County) to start from the beginning because you gotta understand the complexity of these characters. There's just so much to Lena Adams, Sara Linton, and Jeffrey Tolliver that you can't really get from just reading this book.

A must-read for suspense-thriller fans!! The ending... still gets to me!

karin slaughter is one of my favorite authors. i went on a spree and read everything she has written. i have a hard time giving her anything less than 5 stars. she writes captivating stories on the topic of crime scene/mystery/romance. strange combination i know. the main characters of her grant county novels are sara linton and jeffrey tolliver, who used to be married, and are both involved in each crime scene. jeffrey is chief of police and sara is county coroner. they have side story of their ...more
