Great book for fans of the Saw movies

Pretty Girls: A Novel - Karin Slaughter

I stayed up too late reading the first half of this book. The second half started to drag, and there's a lot of gruesome violence and torture that became increasingly difficult to read. It's also hard to take the ending seriously--the final standoff with the villain is insane, and then things wrap up a bit too neatly for a group of characters who've been so severely traumatized.
