? The title made me thing of slang, but definitely not in this way.? I wonder what is the author's inspiration for this work? Your thoughts.

Sam The title of the novel itself is taken from the slang Frannie collects. “In the cut. From vagina. A place to hide. To hedge your bet. But someplace safe, someplace free from harm.” Moore heard the phrase on one of the first trips she made with the homicide detectives she shadowed for her research, and right away knew it was the title, even before she had a character.
