Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I listened to this book (1) because I like Karin Slaughter mysteries and (2) mysteries are being discussed with my twitter chat book group #YearofYA in April. That said, I was so sickened by this mystery...it was very disturbing, too much detail on torture (mental & physical), too much sick pathology of many who are interested in viewing rape, torture & death on internet pornography. The Carroll family lost Julia 20 years ago and it is the angst and grieving of all the members of their family that are labored over and explored with much detail and mental anguish. Chapters are told by Lydia, her father, and Clare. Julia's disappearance tore the family apart and it is through dogged determination and cunning maneuvers that the Carroll sisters (and father) uncover the sordid, grisly details of unspeakable horrors that have been visited upon young girls for over 30 years. I loved the narrator, Kathleen Early, but this was a tough read for me.
