Synopsis: By day, Frannie teaches her writing students about irony and language in all its nuance and unspoken meaning. By night, she compiles a secret dictionary of street slang. One night in the basement of a bar she walks in on an intimate moment between a man and a woman. The man’s face is shadowed in the darkness, but she will forever remember the tattoo on the inside of his left wrist. When the first brutal murder rocks her neighborhood, Frannie is propelled into a sexual liaison that tests the limits of her safety and desires, as she begins a terrifying descent into the dark places that reside deep within her. In the Cut is a masterfully written thriller that will keep readers tense with its mounting sense of terror.
