A FAINT COLD FEAR

Author:  Karin Slaughter
Genre:  Thriller, Grant County Series #3
Published:  2003
Personal Rating:  3/5 (just okay)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/
Deborah Hazlett
Yearly Count:  23


Sara Linton, a Medical Examiner, is called to the scene of an apparent suicide near the local college campus.

I was very engaged in this book until the plot began to focus on Lena, a former policewoman.  I didn't care for her character at all.  The actual mystery was fine, but it was not a favorite in this series.  This book solidified that I'm a bigger fan of Slaughter's Will Trent series.  It's more edgy, which I prefer.

  1. I'm with you, Joy. I love Will Trent and I can't stand Lena. I understand the new one coming out this summer will return Lena to our radar. I used to not like Sara very much, but I've enjoyed her in later books.

    1. Kay ~ I'm so happy to "see" you! I miss you!

      I plan on catching up on Will before coming back to Sara/Lena.

  2. I remember this one and felt much the same as you did about the story. I still love this author though..she's so much better than the sellout that writes Kay Scarpetta. Yes, I'm bitter :)

    1. Stacybuckeye ~ I love Slaughter's writing, but that Lena character has got to go. Or at the very least change.
