Prva scena udarit će gdje je najbolnije. Doktorica Sara Linton upravo je u toaletu restorana pronašla žrtvu – slijepu sveučilišnu profesoricu, silovanu i isječenu nožem. Dok joj Sibyl Adams umire na rukama, Sara Linton još ne zna da će je to brutalno umorstvo uvući u spiralu nasilja kojem se ne nazire kraj, nasilja u kojemu žene padaju kao žrtve, a muškarci – počev od Sari ...more

If you love gritty suspense thrillers, you really must give Karin Slaughter a try. The forensics, the police work, etc are all exceptionally well done, and her characters are fantastic. I'm copying the rest below from my review of Fallen, the eleventh book in the series.

For anyone who is interested in checking out this series, please note that it's important to read them in order since the author wrote two separate series that eventually merge. Here's the order in which they should be read:

Welcome to Grant County, Georgia. Don't look for it on a Georgia map. It isn't there. And in this fictional County, there's a fictional town. It's a small town called Heartsdale, somewhere around Madison, but before you hit Augusta.

Eddie Linton and Daughters is a plumbing company in town. But it should

Beautiful Body that is Missing a Soul - 3.5 Stars

This was my first foray into the world of Karin Slaughter. Her world is filled with interesting characters, personal drama and a fair share of deranged individuals. I did enjoy the book. The writing was very good, the characters were interesting and the plot was good. That said, it seemed to be missing something. Something I am having a hard time putting my finger on. For all the positives, the story still lac

This book was voted as our June Book Read by our group " A Good Thriller"

Happy this book was voted as have enjoyed quite a few of Karin Slaughter books, although good to read this book as her debut book and the introduction of her character Sara Linton.

Karin Slaughter--a wonderful name for a crime/mystery writer--sets her novel in a small town in Georgia. Nothing much happens in Heartsdale, and the local pediatrician, Sara Linton, also works as the coroner. Sara meets her younger sister for lunc

Sarah Linton is a pediatrician and the coroner for the town of Heartsdale in Grant County, Georgia. If that wasn't a weird enough combination, her ex-husband, Jeffrey Tolliver, is the town's police chief. I knew from the start this was going to be a different kind of story.

The crime
Sarah goes to the local diner for lunch with her sister. She's a little late and the lunch crowd is pretty much gone. When she goes to the restroom, she finds Sibyl Adams, a professor at the local college who is also

I think this is the second book by Karin Slaughter that I have sat down and read straight through.

For a forensic-type thriller I enjoyed it. Slaughter has thought up some pretty gruesome twists on a serial rapist/murderer plot, and I liked Tolliver, the chief of police, quite a bit. I also liked Sara Linton, the other main character. She is the coroner and also Tolliver's ex-wife. The tension get ratcheted up early on, and Slaughter keeps it up until the end. I only flipped ahead to se

I hardly every rank a book with five stars. To get there the book needs to do three things:

1. Turn off my internal editor--As a writer I have an internal editor who screens everything I read and tries to improve it. It takes a great book to get him to shut up and let me enjoy the story. Blindsighted shut him down in two chapters.

2. Invade my life--I read every day on the elliptical trainer. But Blindsighted had me reading through all my airline flights, in the limo, and on my couch. I would wake

4 Stars

Warning: this book is not for the squeamish or faint of heart as the crimes are described in gruesome and horrific detail.

While the characters are very compelling it is difficult to say that they are likable. They are all seriously flawed from Sara, the local pediatrician/coroner, with a devastating secret to Jeffrey, the local police chief and Sara's unfaithful ex-husband, to Lena, the hard-ass female detective with a huge chip on her shoulder. Nevertheless, the plot is well

Okay so I don't normally tend to read non fantasy books but this was an exception (I got nagged in to it). I've been in a bit of a reading slump recently. I'm not sure why but this has really kicked me back into reading shape. This is one of those books that as soon as you read the first chapter you go WOW THIS IS GOOD.

IT has everything you could want from a book. Suspense, drama, gore and romance...and a good whodunit. I admit I knew who the murderer was as soon as he was introduced, because i

The many ERRORS in the medical issues of the book made it hard for me to enjoy what otherwise would have been a decent thriller. It's hard to excuse such glaring errors in a book in which a main character is supposed to be a physician and also a coroner. As an example, despite the dramatic pronouncement of the supposed expert on the drug ("There's no known antidote."), atropine (belladonna) DOES have an antidote (and the science of these types of nerve agents are well known, like Physiology 101 ...more

I can't remember what made me pick up the first book of this series, as it wasn't free - but whatever it was, I'm glad for it.

The book opens with a murder and keeps the action going all the way through. Sara Linton, Grant County's pediatrician/coroner (!), shines as the female protagonist, trying to help her ex-husband, Jeffrey, Grant County's Chief of Police, solve the crime before anyone else is harmed.

It's the perfect set up for high drama, as their are many unresolved issues between Sara and

Dr. Sara Linton, pediatrician at the Children's Clinic and Heartsdale coroner, is a survivor of many things, but currently, while still getting over her divorce from Jeffrey Tolliver, Heartsdale Chief of Police, she is trying to survive her obligations to her family. Tessa, her sister, a plumber, is a little irritated because Sara is late again for their lunch at the local diner. Cathy Linton, her mother, is mad at her because at Easter services yesterday, Sara was squirming thinking about sex w ...more

First of this authors books that I have read and really enjoyed this book. Couldn't put it down. Recommended.

Back Cover Blurb:
The sleepy town of Heartsdale, Georgia, is jolted into panic when Sara Linton, paediatrician and medical examiner, 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 its only once Sara starts to perform the post-mortem that the full ext

It was a good book. The ending was unexpected. However, I like a big shocking twist at the end. For me, this just didn't have that extra punch I look for. Still, it was definitely worth the read, and I would recommend this book to anyone looking to be introduced to Karin Slaughter's work. She is a great storyteller and I will read the next in the series, being that this is her debut. Normally I would give her five stars. I gave four solely for the ending. Too bad you can't give four and a half, ...more

This was a group read for 'A Good Thriller.'

Admittedly I am a latecomer to these books, but I'm pleased I took it on. It had been recommended to me a few times and turned out to be a good introduction to Karin Slaughter and her Grant County series. I'm glad I started at the beginning and hadn't read any of the others before this one. I'm always interested in character development, seeing where they go, how their journey unfolds. I found it to be well researched, fairly pacy, with good characteri

Fast-paced, disturbing and often quite sick and twisted, I read through this pretty quickly - a sure sign of a good crime thriller. Really gets your heart-rate going and will keep you up until past your bedtime. I'll be putting more by Karin Slaughter on my to-read list.

"Blindsighted" by Karin Slaughter, is the first book in the Grant County Series. If you love reading gritty suspense thrillers, you really must give Karin Slaughter a try. Karin Slaughter books are not for the faint of heart. Being a avid reader of mystery/suspense thrillers, this is the most graphic book I have read in this category.
The Forensics, the police work, etc are all exceptionally well done, and her characters are involving.

4.5 Stars - 2nd Reading Summer 2014

Sibyl Adams is found in the Filling Station Diner's bathroom bleeding by Sara Linton. The blind professor has been raped and has a large Cross carved into her torso. She is also the twin of Detective Lena Adams. Why would anyone harm the quiet, popular professor? Is it a hate crime? Is it a ritualistic rape/murder?

Then another girl from the GIT goes missing. Has she become the victim of the same freak? Or has her junkie boyfriend done something to her? If it i

The book is truly stretching things...and the kind that I always wonder if it gives ideas to folks who want to be hurtful to others. But.... I like the 2 main characters and that keeps me engaged. Rough cops, nasty crimes..... and still some decent character development.

This is the first book in Slaughter's Grant County Series. As with her GBI/Will Trent books, the writing is solid, the violence intense, and the plot character-driven. Blindsighted automatically lost a rating point because I knew the perpetrator from the outset. This pushed the novel into the realm of formula, and Slaughter's competent writing couldn't negate the predicability of the storyline.

My main complaint with Blindsighted is I don't like the protagonist, pediatrician and coroner Sara Lint

Meh.

That pretty much sums it up. There was a lot of gruesome crimes in this book for such a small town.

I had guessed who the bad guy was from the get-go, but still, the whole book just was a "meh" feeling to it.

This was the first book that I've read that goodreads had recommended to me. It was recommended to me because I highly rated The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen. So far, I'm not impressed by their recommendations.

I have another recommendation from them that I am planning on picking up next, so

This one is definitely not a book for the squeamish. There's blood, guts and post mortems all over the shop and some of it is the type of thing that I need to read with my eyes closed.

Underneath all the icky stuff - because of all the icky stuff - there's a pretty good story about killings and rapes in small town Georgia (though Georgia's idea of a small town and mine seem to be different in size, this seemed like a rather large town to me). This is the first in the series and Slaughter (great

I have to say that anything I write will not be done well enough to give the credit due to Karin Slaughter with her book Blindsighted or any other she has written. I have read all of her books and am always waiting for the next one to come out.
Her writing pulls you into the story and brings the characters to life. You learn to love or in some cases hate her characters but you always feel something!
Her stories are always strong and full of suspense as well as the urgency to find the villein!

Bit graphic for my tastes in some areas. Not a fan of reading from the PoV of a rape victim or the rapist. The fact that the rape was not violent made it worse for me. I felt gross and skeeved out as I read one particular chapter. I'd much rather just read about the case, not be "in" the case. Otherwise, the writing was fine and I'll read more of the series, unless it becomes too graphic.

I'm not really squeamish about most things, but I can't stomach rape in books or movies.
Donna  Happy Booker
Blindsighted (Grant County) Blindsighted was an okay read. The gory bits were explained in explicit and excruciating detail, which were as fascinating as they were disturbing. The crime itself was satisfactorily shocking and unpleasant. These were the things that worked for me in the story. Where Blindsighted fell flat was in just about every other area, characterization, plot, dialog, and in the relationships between the characters.The plot was very simple, someone killed a blind woman in a ver ...more

As the first book in a series, the charm of this book for me comes from the relationship between Sara and her ex-husband, Jeffrey. I have a soft-spot for stories about ex-es, because it carries more emotion and I love to see how they reconnect. Other than that, I have likes and dislikes of the characters and story.

Story wise, I'm still a little confused regarding the murderer's motivation, including the "why now" issue. Everything comes a bit blurry to me. The murders are pretty gruesome, contai

This novel reminds me strongly of the TV series Criminal Minds (+1 star)--very dark and some very twisted behaviour on the part of the murderer. If you are squeamish about gory detail, leave this book on the shelf. I personally, when reading a mystery, love to have a body presented spectacularly within the first few pages. +2 stars for this book!

There is also a rather predictable romantic relationship between the small-town coroner and her ex-husband, the chief of police. Slaughter manages to th

Coroner Sara Linton and Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver were once married. He cheated on her. Those facts were never in question. But there were so many others that were. Other facts that Jeffrey never even knew to ask, not until Sara pushed them under his nose. Not until his deputy's twin sister is brutally raped and murdered in a diner and a college student quickly follows. This serial killer has a method to his madness and it centers on Sara even if she can't understand why. Although I figured ...more

It's not that Karin Slaughter can't write. She knows how to craft a dialogue and describe a gruesome scene. But the plot about the murders of some women in Grant County is empty and highly unoriginal. Our main character Sara Linton, the autopsy woman, isn't very interesting and she has an even more boring on/off relationship with the local chief investigator, which just seems to be there to stuff the book. I mean, the only reason they don't get back together again is because Slaughter has nothin ...more
