Description

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.

        August 6, 2001
        Billed as "Thomas Harris Meets Patricia Cornwell" and heralded by much advance hoopla in industry magazines, this long-anticipated launching of a scheduled three-book series featuring an attractive Georgia university town pediatrician-coroner marks the debut of a promising young author, but ultimately disappoints, partly due to overly-exorbitant pre-publishing claims. As Dr. Sara Linton leaves her pediatric clinic to meet her 33-year-old younger sister for lunch at a campus eatery, she receives a postcard picturing Atlanta's Emory University, where she interned. The enigmatic biblical message reads, "Why hast thou forsaken me?" At the diner, she goes to the restroom and discovers a young blind university professor who has been raped and brutally slashed with a knife. Too late to save her, Sara calls her ex-husband police chief, who, coincidentally, employs the victim's twin sister, Lena, as a detective. The trail quickly leads to a missing co-ed, and suspicion falls upon her druggie boyfriend. The co-ed is found raped, heavily drugged with belladonna and stretched out nude as if crucified on the hood of Sara's car in the hospital parking lot. Soon after, Lena is abducted by the killer. Fighting her attraction to her ex, Sara begins to suspect the rape-murders are tied to her own rape in the Emory parking lot 12 years ago. At the end, little suspense remains. Sara Linton is no Kay Scarpetta and her villain is a mere shadow of the complex, chilling Hannibal Lecter, but—forgiving inept, trivia-cluttered dialogue and manifest lack of firsthand fluency in the medical arena—the offbeat characters and setting are engaging enough to leave readers awaiting a sequel. (Sept. 17)Forecast:The hype—including a blurb from George Pelecanos—plus major advertising and a 5-city author tour should sell this early on, but the uneven execution may weaken demand for Slaughter's next book.
        Blindsighted is an alternate selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club, the Doubleday Book Club and the Mystery Guild, and foreign rights have been sold in Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Denmark and Norway.

      • content: Arriving late for a lunch date at a diner in her hometown of Heartsdale, Georgia, pediatrician and coroner Sara Linton discovers local college professor Sibyl Adams in the restroom, raped and slashed. Sara is unable to save her, and becomes drawn into the investigation with her ex-husband, Chief of Police Jeffrey Tolliver. It soon appears that a serial rapist/murderer is at work, and suspects abound, including a possible link to Sara's past. Judith Ivey's expressive narration does full justice to the story, and her regional accents are always on point. Her vocal characterizations are effective and believable, and her pacing enhances the suspense. It's easy to listen to and hard to turn off. M.A.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
