He sadistic killer he discovers that ex police detective Lena Adams now a security guard on campus may be in possession of crucial information But bruised and angered by her expulsion rom the Liar force Lena seems to be barely capable of protecting herself let alone saving the next victim. Herself Lena Adams is now working at the University as Campus Security Gone are the days of her being a Police Officer After what happened to her a year ago she just couldn t hack it Now however she s back in the thick of investigating a crimeor better or worseWhat makes this book so darn good is that it s a character driven mystery Jeffrey Tolliver and Sara Linton s dynamics are spot on whether they are working together to try Jeffrey Tolliver and Sara Linton s dynamics are spot on whether they are working together to try solve a crime or trying to work on their relationship I just love them together And what can I say Jeffrey is totally swoonworthy As Noir for Lena there is something about her that gets me She has been through the wringer and yet she hasn t uite given up Then there is the dynamics between Sara and her sister Tess Talk about realistic Here in Faint Cold Fear the mystery is pulse pounding and the characterizations areantabulous and I highly recommend this novel Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are for those of you lookingor a thrilling read Thanks to Hoopla Gaffer for the audiobookPublished on Goodreads on 102019 I started off really liking this book but at some point along the way it started toeel like of the same old same oldSara and Jeffrey are still sort of estranged and still vacillating about their Circumstantial Evidence feelingsor each other Sara is a really prickly person Lena is still getting it all wrong It seems she has learnt nothing Lone Star Justice: The First Century of the Texas Rangers from her past Frank iswell Frank is Frank is FrankSara rather stupidly takes her heavily pregnant sister Tess alongor the ride when she attends the scene of an apparent suicide Tess takes a walk to attend to the call of "nature and is brutally attackeddoubt is thrown on "and is brutally attackedDoubt is thrown on the suicide is actually a suicide when another apparent suicide occurs Lena becomes involved in another death on campus and really It all gets a bit messy There are plots and sub plots and sub sub plotsNot the best Karin Slaughter I have read And honestly I think I prefer her stand alone books It might do you some good to remember that at the end of the day no matter how smart that brain of yours is up there it s your heart that needs looking after Subjectivity and personal preference aside readers share a common goal inding those rare books that manage to leave their mark Or as in this case an entire series so monumental the inspired eelings linger long after The emotionality dark themes and vulnerability put on A Chicken in Every Yard: The Urban Farm Store's Guide to Chicken Keeping full display in Grant County have made it a place I deem worthy of revisitingIt was back in college that I stumbled across Karin Slaughter s work at a time when only Blindsighted and Kisscut had met the world Her ballsy approach and my ensuing loveor the multi Island of the Lost Horses (Dora and Friends) faceted beings presented on the page inspired aull read through every summer in anticipation of her all release Now
