"The mutilation murder of a young college professor paralyzes a tiny Georgian community. This hideous crime is the worst thing small-town pediatrician and coroner Sara Linton has ever seen--but only when the autopsy is complete is the intricate, terrible genius of a profoundly twisted psychopath truly revealed. As Sara's ex-husband--Heartsdale police chief Jeffrey Tolliver--pursues an elusive fiend, the victim's sister and the county's only detective, swears she'll have her personal vengeance. But their worst fears are realized by the macabre crucifixion of a second local woman: there is a serial slayer in their midst, one whose identity is hidden somewhere in Sara Linton's secret past."--P. [4] of cover.

Opinion

From Library Staff

In Grant County, Georgia, murder victims are being poisoned with belladonna, a volatile drug that renders users ‘blindsighted’, or conscious, but unable to process what they see. Good thing, because this is one sadistic killer, and pediatrician Sara Linton, who doubles as the county’s coroner, mu... Read More »

This is the first book in the Grant County series and Karin Slaughter starts it off with intensity. For some of the comments from readers that didn't understand why the cancer diagnosis is mentioned but then nothing happens, KEEP READING THE OTHER BOOKS AND YOU WILL FIND OUT. All her books have some graphic descriptions and situations that are not for the faint of heart. Her characters are so real and I have been invested in them through out the entire Grant County and Will Trent series. She is one of the best thriller writers I have ever read so If you like intense, sometimes violent situations coupled with characters that have real struggles and relationships then this author is for you.

Not my style of story... too many descriptive facts... a little slow to start... some info really not necessary...

Pretty good mystery/thriller. A bit gorier than I usually read. I will check out more of the series.

If you get the audiobook, make sure you get the unabridged version. I failed to check and ended up only getting to hear about half the story.

This was okay. Some things kind of felt disjointed. I saw a post about one of the plots in the beginning of the book about telling a family that one of their kids had cancer and how hard that was going to be, etc., and then that's it???? Nothing else. Trying to figure out why the author even put that in there. It really didn't add anything to the story and none of those characters played any other part in the story. Anyway, like I said the book was just okay.
