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 when Sara starts to perform the postmortem that the full extent of the killer's brutality becomes clear.Police chief Jeffrey Tolliver -- Sara's exhusband -- 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 just a personal attack. What he's dealing with is 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.

3.5 Very graphic descriptions and good who-done-it
While a bit dated in technology and cultural issues, I liked this book a lot. It definitely has some graphic violence which is mostly discussed after the fact but in great detail. I wasn't certain about who the bad guy was until pretty late in the book, although I did wonder about the guy briefly ea...

I would give this 3 1/2 stars because I was immediately engaged in the story. I found the main character Sara interesting and figured out fairly quickly the common factor between the current victims and Sara's history. That being said I was desperately hoping that the perpetrator was not someone tie...
