Cut to the Bone by Ellison Cooper | Review

This is Book #3 in the Agent Sayer Altair series. I do wish that I would have started with Book #1 in the series: Caged. Despite this, the author provided enough backstory to avoid confusion.

The three books are highly rated on Goodreads, and I think we are due for Book #4 very soon!

I really loved this book and will definitely go back and read the whole series! I love a good series + police procedural, and the fact that I absolutely adored Sayer’s character will keep me coming back for more!

Additionally, there were many other main characters that were quite interesting and loveable! They were also quite diverse which was nice to see in a book! I also really enjoyed the inclusion of multiple work dogs as the main characters! There was a therapy and a search and rescue dog.

As far as death and violence go, this one isn’t super gory or descriptive. I’ve read far worst violent and dark thrillers. If you like murder/mysteries, you will definitely enjoy this book.

If you are looking for a gripping novel, this one is for you! Highly recommend!

Thank you to St. Martin's Press for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


After grieving the death of her fiancé and almost losing her job, Agent Sayer Altair is finally starting to rebuild her life. Her research into the minds of psychopaths is breaking new ground and her strange little family is thriving. But Sayer’s newfound happiness is threatened when she is called in to investigate a girl’s body left inside a circle of animal figurines below a cryptic message written in blood. When they discover that the dead girl is one of twenty-four missing high school students, Sayer quickly realizes that nothing in this case is what it seems.

As the investigation draws her in to a tangled web of fake identities and false leads, the trail soon begins to point directly to her own life. Now, Sayer must confront her painful past to uncover her connection to the deranged killer if she hopes to save the missing teens and protect everything that she loves.
