Description

This is the third pulse-pounding novel in the Grant County series from New York Times best-selling author Karin Slaughter.

Sara Linton, medical examiner in the small town of Heartsdale, Georgia, is called out to an apparent suicide on the local college campus. The mutilated body provides little in the way of clues, and the college authorities are eager to avoid a scandal, but for Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, things don't add up.

Two more suspicious suicides follow, and a young woman is brutally attacked. For Sara, the violence strikes far too close to home. And as Jeffrey pursues the 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 from the force, Lena seems to be barely capable of protecting herself, let alone saving the next victim.

Great Story-Voice a Litte Distracting

Would you try another book from Karin Slaughter and/or Dana Ivey?

I have listened to many other Karen Slaughter books, read by Kathleen Early, and would listen to those in a heartbeat. I was disappointed to hear a different voice on this book. Probably will not listen to another one now, as the voice does not fit the story and is therefor distracting.

How could the performance have been better?

I do not think Dana Ivey's voice is a good fit for the Karen Slaughter books. I loved the way Kathleen Early voiced the Karen Slaughter stories-the voices and accents were good, and her voice was crisp and youthful in a way that you could tell she was around the same age as the characters she was portraying. This is very important when you're trying to get into a story on audio. As soon as this book began, and I heard Dana's voice, I was immediately disappointed, and actually find myself not listening to this one as often as I would listen to the other Slaughter books being narrarated by Early. I will probably not listen to any more of Karen Slaughter books if they are voiced by Dana. The beauty of Karen Slaughter books is that that they are a guilty pleasure read, filled with drama, passion, drugs and crime. The last thing you want to envision is your grandmother reading these stories to you, which is the way I feel when Dana is narrating.

Disappointing

I found it disappointing. Didn't like the narration in particular. I found I didn't connect with the characters. Not recommended at all.

Good book, wrong narrator

The plot is good but the narrator takes away from the story. Listened to it for as long as I could. Will read the book.

Don’t like the narrator in this book

This is the third book in this series and I’ve really enjoyed it. But I really preferred the previous narrator and I also did not think it added to the story at all that some overly dramatic music was added at times. I hope the other narrator is back in the next book.

Favorite Writer, Not my favorite novel

I am powering through the Grant County series on audible. Love it and love Karin Slaughter as a writer. I was thrown by the narration in this one. The characters sounded older than their years and weird music played Everytime the character changed. It was off putting. Still going for #4 in the series though.😊

okay

Choppy between chapters. The beginning and end were missing. Also the audio was fuzzy. The Male characters were also not as good as could be.

Very confusing plot

I tried very hard to keep up with the plot but it was impossible to do so. Half the time I wasn’t sure who was speaking. I had to keep going back on the book. I also didn’t like the reader trying to speak with a southern accent. I was very fake.

Details, details, details

Would you try another book from Karin Slaughter and/or Dana Ivey?

yes

If you’ve listened to books by Karin Slaughter before, how does this one compare?

not accurate on the details

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

the narrator's voice did not vary enough by character

Was A Faint Cold Fear worth the listening time?

yes

Any additional comments?

large problem with the second suicide victim, as the author confused rifle/shotgun bullet/shell. 20 and 12 gauges are shotguns, not rifles. Shotguns discharge shells loaded with shot. Rifles discharge bullets. made the rest of the story hard to listen to as I was constantly looking/listening for other gaffes.
