After missing for a decade, a young girl shows up at a city's Christmas tree lighting ceremony in the chilling crime fiction novel, A Thousand Tiny Cuts (Book 1 in The Cut Series) by Christina Kay. Ten years ago, homicide detective Filomena Kastaros's life fell apart. Being a young widow with a five-year-old daughter, Mena made the best of her life with her precious girl, Sadie. When Sadie was five years old, she vanished while walking to her friend's house, and two weeks later, her corpse was found lying near a river. Simultaneously with the discovery of Sadie's body, another little girl Caroline, was abducted. Believing that the two kidnappings are related, Mena never quit hunting for Caroline and her abductor. After ten years of searching with no leads or results, Mena is shocked and confounded when Caroline appears at a city celebration. Where has Caroline been? Why, after all these years, has she been released now?

In the exciting and mind-boggling thriller, A Thousand Tiny Cuts (Book 1 in The Cut Series) by Christina Kay, the audacity of the captors and criminals is astounding when after a decade their victim is freed. Charged with suspense, the intensity of the story, and the heart-rending plight of the victims captured my attention from the first page. Both Mena and Caroline are admirable and relatable characters, and I could hardly wait until the culprit who had caused their suffering was apprehended. Including outstanding protagonists, fallible antagonists, and a striking plot, it is a spellbinding novel that will please those who are fans of drama and suspense. A word of caution, the book contains a trigger warning due to adult cutting.
