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.

Narator's southern drawl . . .

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-06-07

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.

  • Shadow Divers

For John Chatterton and Richie Kohler, deep wreck diving was more than a sport. Testing themselves against treacherous currents, braving depths that induced hallucinatory effects, they pushed themselves to their limits and beyond, brushing against death more than once in the rusting hulks of sunken ships.

Shadow Divers Was Great!

I was a little hesitant to listen to this book since I have never been interested in WWII and German U boats. I am a recreational diver and this is why I decided to purchase it. I was happily surprised with this one. I enjoyed all aspects of the book and even learned something about WWII, WITHOUT any pain! It was beautifully written and narated very well. There were a few 4 letter words, but otherwise it was a clean book:something I always appreciate. I definitely recommend it to anyone interested in diving, WWII and German history.

Goldie Hawn's life is an ongoing tableau of stories, and she has a born knack for telling them. In this candid and insightful book, Goldie invites us to join her in a look back at the people, places, and events that have touched her. It is the spiritual journey of a heart in search of enlightenment.

I've always admired Goldie Hawn and so was interested in her story. This was a very interesting book because I saw that she has a spiritual side that she continues to grapple with. The book is incredibly squeeky clean and I appreciate that very much. I would recommend it to any who love Goldie Hawn and her works.
