The hospital had been built over a hundred years ago, and Atlanta had been adding on to it ever since ly a handful of rooms, now had nearly a thousand beds and trained over 25 percent of the doctors in Georgia. Since Sara had worked here, several new sections had been built onto the main building, but not much had been done to blend the old. With the new. The new lobby was huge, almost like the entrance of a suburban shopping mall.

Sara Linton, medical examiner in the small town of Heartsdale, GA, 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.

A FAINT COLD FEAR is the third book by Karin Slaughter featuring Dr. Sara Linton, pediatrician and part-time county medical examiner. Sara is called out by her ex-husband, Jeffrey Tolliver, Chief of Police in Grant County, Georgia, to examine an apparent suicide of a Grant Tech College student. Sara’s younger sister, Tessa, who is seven months pregnant, wanders off to relieve herself while waiting for Sara to finish her examination. Tessa is later found unconscious and bleeding from numerous stab wounds to her stomach and head. Lena Adams, an ex-detective for Chief Tolliver who is now employed as a campus security guard while recovering from a brutal rape and beating injects herself into a string of suspicious campus suicides against her boss’s direct order to stay out. Lena’s previous dysfunctional life provides her with an insight and a clear understanding into what is really happening on campus; however no one seems to listen. Although Slaughter is an excellent writer—I have read more than a dozen of her books—I feel this psychological drama with its savage brutality, its grisly murder scenarios and graphic sex scenes may be a bit over the top. The book is definitely not for the faint of heart. I am hard pressed to give this chilling drama more than a 3-star rating.

I enjoyed the suspense present in A Faint Cold Fear much more than I did in Kisscut.

Sara is enjoying an outing eating ice cream with her sister Tessa when she's called to a crime scene. Jeffrey is already there. A black college kid is found dead and the evidence points to a probable suicide although, Sara is not too sure about it. While Sara is talking to Jeffrey, the unthinkable happens, a young woman is attacked and stabbed close to the crime scene.

What follows is the investigation into multiple presumed suicides and the attack of the young woman which shook Sara and her family to the core. Sara and Jeffrey will try to piece together the connection between the deaths since neither believes in coincidences.

Lena Adams also makes a big appearance throughout the story. Lena is working on the college campus as part of its security team. She hates her new boss, Chuck but she needs a paycheck. At some point before the story begins, she has gone to a few counseling sessions but soon she has abandoned it. She is also hitting the bottle hard. Worse, she meets Ethan Green, a college guy with a terrible past and who's an abuser. Just what she needs after everything she has gone through!!!

Even though I liked this story much better, my issues with Jeffrey and Lena persists. I still think Sara can do much better than Jeffrey.

Now, Lena, she is a lost cause. She has tons of prejudices which she has mostly not changed since Blindsighted. She didn't stick with therapy which as we all know she needs desperately. She has become an alcoholic and is now in an abusive relationship. Yet, she thinks about Nan or Hank in a derogative way. She needs to look at herself first before criticising anyone else. To me, she acts conceited, disrespectful and mean most of the time. Not sure why she's still part of the story. She had multiple chances to contribute to the police's investigation but instead, she becomes a hindrance. I'm getting tired of reading about all her bad decisions.

As with the prior books, A Faint Cold Fear has a good twist. We shall see if this plays a part in the next book.

Cliffhanger: No

3.5/5 Fangs

I wish I had Karin Slaughter's skills to write a review worthy of her imagination and writing and creativity. I’m 75. Have always been a reader, more than sixty years ago reading Nancy Drew mysteries under the covers by flashlight. When I find an author I like, I read EVERYTHING that person has written. In keeping with my seriously obsessive tendencies, there is a list on my computer, now 50+ pages long with 34 titles to a page, to which I add each new book read in author-then-title alphabetical order. Where does one go to discover new *great” writers? Googling genres helps, sometimes. “If you like so and so, you might also like” sometimes provides names. Many years ago, I started GERALD’S GAME by Stephen King at 11:00 p.m. one quiet night when everyone was asleep. By thirty minutes in, my hair was literally standing on end and I was hearing noises! Always a big fan, when finished I was convinced that Stephen King, author, had truly—finally--gone around the bend! Karin Slaughter elicits that same sensation of disbelief. I'm reading the Grant County series in order, and this is #3. I confess to being only about 30% into the book (Kindle measurement). Her storylines are so out there, so detailed and horrific, that a part of you wants to stop reading and go "do" lighthearted and sunshiny. But, you can’t, and must continue to the last page, last word. She is amazing. I intend to read everything else with her name on the cover.

This book was tiresome to read as it was very dark, gritty and depressing. Story line was OK, characters were diverse and developed well, but the gloomy atmosphere through the whole book got to be oppressive. There was not a time the gloominess let up which made the story very depressing. I actually would rate it at 2.5. A difficult read.
