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, he has to face the fact that Sibyl's murder wasn't a single personal attack. They're dealing with a sadistic rapist-turned-killer who is terrorizing rural Grant County.
Jeffrey isn't alone in his search. Lena Adams, the county's sole female detective, wants to see justice done since her sister was the first victim. Sara, too, cannot escape the terror. A secret from her past could hold the key to finding the killer, unless he finds her first.

"Judith Ivey's expressive narration does full justice to the story....It's easy to listen to and hard to turn off." (AudioFile)
"Wildly readable....A bull's-eye, deftly crafted, damnably suspenseful and, in the end, deadly serious....Slaughter's plotting is brilliant, her suspense relentless." (The Washington Post)
I enjoyed the storyline, but had problems with the naration. Judith Ivey's southern drawl made all of the men in this book come across as nitwits. This distracted from the story, for me.
This is the second book I've listened to by Karin Slaughter. I've enjoyed her stories. I will continue to listen to others of her books.
No. The story went along pretty good with a surprise as to who the killer/rapist was but the rape scenes were so graphic that I would never recommend it for reading.
The graphic rape scenes.
Yes, except for the rape scenes. the last one was especially hard to read.
This would be a pretty good story except for the graphic rape scenes. They were very disturbing.
The narration of this book was excellent and the book was definitely suspenseful. However, I figured out pretty early on who "done it." It seemed fairly obvious to me. For that reason, I don't think I'll continue to read her other books.
I love murder, thriller, fantasy, and romance novels!!
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.
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!
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!
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...
Audio book just as enthralling as reading it a few years ago
Comparability probably all of Karin slaughter books
Lena confronting her sisters lover
No, prefer to make it last over a few days
Not unless it were a different narrator, this person made all the men sound extremely stupid and the southern drawl, or what the narrator considered a southern drawl, made the book almost excruciating to listen to.
Sarah, because although she's a doctor you don't get that superiority I see so often in professionals.
I need to pay more attention to the narrator, it really makes a difference as to whether I enjoy listening or have to force myself because I paid for the book.
decent plot, enjoyed the characters. i like this author. i do wish the unabridged version has been available.
i disliked the over-exaggerated accent this and many other narrators use.
it's very annoying in an audio book and not like most people who live in the south actually speak.
I realize that I really like Karin Slaughter books, as this is another that gets a 5* from me. Even though the audio is shorter then most (just over 5 hours), it packs a full story, good story line, and really good narration. I actually ready one of her later books first, so listening to this book helps me place the characters even more so. Yet you don't have to ready any other of her books prior to reading Blindsighted. Its a good story on it's own.
I do not like the narration of this book. The performer doesn't get the voices right. The book itself is good.
She just doesn't fit the characters. I think the performers voice has to match the book they are reading or it takes away from the story.
I started listening to them at night to help me sleep. Now I listen to them everywhere I go. I love them and tell everyone I know about them
less confusing more action. it was more like a love story then a thriller.
If you're going to write a thriller then make it have action.
I don't know. I like her voice in this book.
