Saturday night dates at the skating rink have been a tradition in the small southern town of Heartsdale for as long as anyone can remember, but when a teenage quarrel explodes into a deadly shoot-out, Sara Linton--the town's pediatrician and medical examiner--finds herself entangled in a terrible tragedy.
What seemed at first to be a horrific but individual catastrophe proves to have wider implications. The autopsy reveals evidence of long-term abuse, of ritualistic self -mutilation, but when Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver start to investigate, they are frustrated at every turn.
The children surrounding the victim close ranks. The families turn their backs. Then a young girl is abducted, and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to an even more brutal crime, one far more shocking than anyone could have imagined. Meanwhile, detective Lena Adams, still recovering from her sister's death and her own brutal attack, finds herself drawn to a young man who might hold the answers. But unless Lena, Sara, and Jeffrey can uncover the deadly secrets the children hide, it's going to happen again . . .

We are back with the Grant County crew for the second book!! After reading what I thought go check out what Barb thought at Booker T’s Farm!

Here is what I thought

So we are back in Grant County and boy does it start out with a bang!! Something happened at a skatting party and a teen girl tries to kill a teen boy and Jeremy has to make a fast decision on what to do and deal with the aftermath.

Investigating what started things leads Jeremy, Lena and the others into really messed up things. Sarah who is the coroner finds out some things about the young girl while doing the autopsy that was really messed up. As you can see it was just full of really icky things.

The more they look into things they find out some things about child porn and those involved and how the teens are involved in all of it along with the adults and I feel like it’s hard to say much without spoiling things.

I really like Sarah and Jeremy can be a bit hit or miss but I was really hoping to like Lena more but I didn’t. I know that things happened to her in the first book, but she was worse and I was hoping she would get better but I get she has problems and she needs some therapy help!

This author really likes to pull out the icky punches and has some really hardcore things happen to people and well this story this time I  just didn’t like it as much as the first book. So I hope the next one is better!

The Narrator

This one had a different narrator than the first one but she was okay. It was my first time listening to Patricia Kalember and she is decent but I liked the other narrator that did the first one better.

  1. I think this fell short for both of us and I love that we both used the word “ick” in our reviews. I do hope things improve with Lena and I would have kind of liked to have seen more of Sara in this book. I almost felt like she was a side character this time around. Mine dropped to a 4/5 but I guess they all can’t be 5 star reads now can they?
