    The sleepy town of Heartsdale, Georgia, is jolted into panic when Sara Linton, the town's pediatrician and coroner, 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 it's only once Sara starts to perform the postmortem that the full extent of the killer's brutality starts to become clear.

    Would you try another book from Karin Slaughter and/or Judith Ivey?

    I would definitely try another book by Karin Slaughter, but I really did not care for Judith Ivey's performance. She made Dr. Sara Linton sound much older than she is, at least in my opinion.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sara is one of my favorite characters, though Lena is also very interesting! I've read The Grant County Series, The Will Trent Series, and The Georgia Series, and Sara is favorite in each! Just the trials that she's had to overcome and her doing so successfully makes her one of my favorite characters!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I felt that the narrator made Sara sound much older than she should have been. I really didn't care for any of it, which is a shame as this is a great book, one of my favorites in fact!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes!!


    Any additional comments?

    Initially,I thought that this was unabridged. It wasn't until after I purchased the book that I realized that it was the abridged version. Since an unabridged version is not available, I thought I'd give it a shot. Not only didn't I dislike the narrators portrayal of Sara Linton, there are times when you can hear "other audio" besides the narration. Its almost like someone is talking in the background. Sometimes there's an echo, which is also annoying. I hope that this book gets re-released, unabridged and with a different narrator. The music was also annoying...
