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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/5/2014

    " Overall I like this series and always get so wrapped up in the book that I forget to finish the laundry or eat dinner. Having said that, I'm a bit annoyed after finishing Faint Cold Fear. The Lena storyline is starting to bother me to the point that I don't want to continue reading the series. I'm trying to find sympathy for her but it's getting harder and harder to forgive her for her horrible choices. She only distracts me from the rest of the action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 1/20/2014

    " Oh yes, If you love Karins other books your love this one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Oliver | 1/6/2014

    " This is supposed to be a short read. That is if you find the plot interesting enough to hold on firmly into the book. In my case, I did not (or have I been busy over something else? :-D). It's good enough to keep up with the earlier part of the series. I'm starting to hate some of the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcella | 12/28/2013

    " Twists and turns that lead you every way but the right direction "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jezka | 12/27/2013

    " Jeffrey is an easily loathed character, in my opinion. He makes me not want to read the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert Vandiver | 12/25/2013

    " I liked this book; this time I had readthis author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tasha | 12/24/2013

    " I loved that this story keeps you wondering what's happening, u are not given any kinds of clues to think, 'hmm, maybe it's this person'. I will admit though, I was a little disappointed in the outcome, but the story leading up to the finale was pretty damn good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lizz Wodrich | 12/12/2013

    " I had troubles with this one. The characters are starting to annoy me, Lena in particular. I know you have been through a rough time girl, but jeez! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 12/10/2013

    " I like this series, but am tired of listening to Sara wonder if she will ever trust Jeffery again. I wont be able to stomach another entire book with this debate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney Colton | 11/29/2013

    " Slaughter is an author that can do no wrong. She writes compelling dialogue and chilling graphic scenes. Pick up her series for tension-filled, page-turning reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mommy | 11/25/2013

    " Another great one! Have I mentioned that i LOVE this series? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 11/16/2013

    " Another well-written, fast-paced mystery/thriller from Karin Slaughter. A Faint, Cold Fear was difficult for me to put down, and I finished it before I knew it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki DeLash | 11/13/2013

    " These books are sooooo addicting... I just had to go buy the two Laura didn't let me borrow. I love a good murder mystery that takes place locally. :o) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Al | 3/19/2013

    " Typical soap opera from author with violence and sex. Medical aspects ok. Needs work on police procedural. I wonder about the mental health of the author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia Douglas | 3/17/2013

    " Karin Slaughter is a great mystery/suspense writer. Most of what she writes about is usually pretty gruesome compared to most mystery writers, but I like her originality and descriptive qualities. This is the third in her series following through with the same characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 V | 6/21/2012

    " Verrrrry gory so far... Am halfway through, and enjoying it!! In the first two, I had an inkling whodunnit by this point, but not in this one!! :-) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kay | 6/1/2012

    " The third in her Grant County series, A Faint Cold Fear is the weakest of the three, plot wise, and I found it a bit repetitious. I like the characters, Sara and Jefferey, but Lena gets on my last nerve. I just want to smack her. This one is OK. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 5/9/2012

    " Tightly woven and this time I was caught by the who-done-it surprise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 4/2/2012

    " I came into the middle of this series, however I was totally engrossed in this story from the beginning. What hooked me to read more from Ms. Slaughter was the ending..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 3/17/2012

    " So many twists and turns, I almost could not keep up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/23/2011

    " This was my least favorite so far, if the next one is this bad I might be finished with this author.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie scott | 5/23/2011

    " Yet another compelling n totally compulsive read frm the gifted Karin Slaughter. I abaolutely luv this series i finish 1 novel n can't wait 2 start the next 1. Karin Slaughter u r the QUEEN of pyscological murder/thrillers ur AMAZING!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moshi | 5/15/2011

    " I enjoyed this book a lot more as compared to Kisscut. The storyline is riverting and I got through the book quickly.

    Even though I sympathized with Lena's character, I really wanted to smack her! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 5/3/2011

    " Another very surprising thriller written by Slaughter..I highly recommend this..I was able to read alot of this Grant County series after & in between back surgeries..this kept me going and I was not bored at all "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachael | 4/6/2011

    " Keeps you guessing, and just when it seems to be dragging on something new pops up "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 3/28/2011

    " Just ok. Perhaps a little worse than the first one but I didn't call the killer, which is always a bonus with suspense. Lena is *really* annoying me though. Her character just doesn't make sense... she's like a ball of cliches. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 stan | 3/28/2011

    " I started this book,but found it a bit mundane, first it was exciting, then it got boring, two many characters. I have read Miss Slaughter before. Will this make me want to read more? The plots have to be more slick more imaginative "

    " I'm glad I read the other 2, because it helped fill in some of the reasons the characters did what they did. "
