From the Publisher:
A small Georgia town erupts in panic when a young college professor is found brutally mutilated in the local diner. But it's only when town pediatrician and coroner Sara Linton does the autopsy that the full extent of the killer's twisted work becomes clear.
Sara's ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, leads the investigation -- a trail of terror that grows increasingly macabre when another local woman is found crucified a few days later. But he's got more than a sadistic serial killer on his hands, for the county's sole female detective, Lena Adams -- the first victim's sister -- want to serve her own justice.
But it is Sara who holds the key to finding the killer. A secret from her past could unmask the brilliantly malevolent psychopath .. or mean her death.
Someone is slashing women to death at the Grant Institute of Technology in Grant County, Georgia. Dr. Sara Linton, coroner, investigates.
"The publisher is comparing Slaughter to Thomas Harris and Patricia Cornwell, and for once the hype is justified. BLINDSIGHTED is a bull's-eye--deftly crafted, damnably suspenseful and, in the end, deadly serious." - Patrick Anderson 09/16/2001 Mystery Review
"The acute sense of awareness with which Slaughter builds this superbly plotted psychodrama lifts her writing far above the norm...." Fall 2001
