Publisher's Summary

The sleepy town of Heartsdale, Georgia, is jolted into panic when Sara Linton, the town's pediatrician and coroner, finds Sibyl Adams, a young college professor, dead in the local diner. As well as being viciously raped, Sibyl has been cut: two deep knife wounds form a lethal cross over her stomach. But it's only once Sara starts to perform the postmortem that the full extent of the killer's brutality starts to become clear.Police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, Sara's ex-husband, is in charge of the investigation, and when a second victim is found, crucified, only a few days later, he has to face the fact that Sibyl's murder wasn't a single personal attack. They're dealing with a sadistic rapist-turned-killer who is terrorizing rural Grant County.
Jeffrey isn't alone in his search. Lena Adams, the county's sole female detective, wants to see justice done since her sister was the first victim. Sara, too, cannot escape the terror. A secret from her past could hold the key to finding the killer, unless he finds her first.


What the Critics Say

"Judith Ivey's expressive narration does full justice to the story....It's easy to listen to and hard to turn off." (AudioFile)
"Wildly readable....A bull's-eye, deftly crafted, damnably suspenseful and, in the end, deadly serious....Slaughter's plotting is brilliant, her suspense relentless." (The Washington Post)

Narator's southern drawl . . .

I enjoyed the storyline, but had problems with the naration. Judith Ivey's southern drawl made all of the men in this book come across as nitwits. This distracted from the story, for me.
This is the second book I've listened to by Karin Slaughter. I've enjoyed her stories. I will continue to listen to others of her books.

Horribly graphic rape scenes ruined the book.

Would you listen to Blindsighted again? Why?

No. The story went along pretty good with a surprise as to who the killer/rapist was but the rape scenes were so graphic that I would never recommend it for reading.

What was most disappointing about Karin Slaughter’s story?

The graphic rape scenes.

What about Judith Ivey’s performance did you like?

Very good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, except for the rape scenes. the last one was especially hard to read.

Any additional comments?

This would be a pretty good story except for the graphic rape scenes. They were very disturbing.
