Blindsighted
Blindsighted - Karin Slaughter

I'd read Triptych before, but wanted to go back to the beginning before starting properly with Karin Slaughter's books. It was a wild ride, but a good one. If you can't stand violence in books, you should stay away miles from this series, because it is very violent and bloody. I would like to read more in the series. I liked Sara probably better than Will Trent.

Blindsighted - Karin Slaughter

While I got sucked into this story I figured out who did pretty early on. I enjoyed the setting and relationships between the characters. That being said the premise of why the killer did what he did was super convoluted and meh. This story was super graphic so if that bothers you I’d skip most of Slaughters work.

Blindsighted (Grant County #1) - Karin Slaughter
Blindsighted - Karin Slaughter

Although I disliked most of the characters, you have to admire an author who dares to write these incredible flawed people, even knowing that it's going to negatively impact the way you see her book. Karin Slaughter wrote a very good start for this series. It's dark and suspenseful and it leaves you interested enough to want to continue with the series. Four stars!

Blindsighted - Karin Slaughter

Synopsis : The sleepy town of Heartsdale, Georgia, is jolted into panic when Sara Linton, paediatrician and medical examiner, finds Sibyl Adams 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 post-mortem that the full extent of the killer's brutality becomes 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, both Jeffrey and Sara have to face the fact that Sibyl's murder wasn't a one-off attack. What they're dealing with is a seasoned sexual predator. A violent serial killer... 

 

Thoughts : Ok so this book is not for the faint of heart. I've read mystery/suspense before but I have to say this could be one of the more graphic ones. That being said I did enjoy it. The suspense part of the book was  well written and kept me turning the pages. I found the relationship between Sara and Jeffrey odd but I hope to see it  progress in the remainder of the series. I did have a problem with Lena, usually I like the "tough-woman" character but her inability to deal with her sisters lifesytle and clear embarassment of her family was something that i didn't like.

Very graphic descriptions and good who-done-it
Blindsighted - Karin Slaughter

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 early on but then I moved on to other possibilities.

 

You know, I can't say that I genuinely liked any of the characters but I didn't really dislike any of them. They felt like real folks, very flawed and just trying to get on with their lives.

I'll certainly keep going with the series. I want to know what happens with them next.
