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.
