Without warning, the body jerked violently, pitching forward and slamming Sara onto the floor. Blood spread out around both of them, and Sara instinctively clawed to get out from under the convulsing woman. With her feet and hands she groped for some kind of purchase on the slick bathroom floor. Finally, Sara managed to slide out from underneath her. She turned Sibyl over, cradling her head, trying to help her through the convulsions. Suddenly, the jerking stopped.
Sibyl is, or was, Sibyl Adams, a college professor who had the misfortune of being drugged, savagely raped, slashed, and left for dead in the toilet of the local diner, to be coincidentally discovered by Sara Linton. Coincidences don't stop there, and neither do the rapes and murders. The next is, unimaginably, still more gruesome than the first and it, too, is discovered by Dr. Linton. Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver is Sara's ex-husband, and mercurial detective Lena Adams, another major player in the ensuing drama, was Sibyl's twin sister.
And the monster behind these increasingly more depraved acts? Suspects abound, from the diner's jack-of-all-trades, Will Harris, to Victim No. 2's boyfriend, to Jack Allen Wright who, a dozen years prior, raped Dr. Linton (that rape had been a secret until now). There are other possibilities, naturally, and it soon becomes apparent that Sara's an intended target.
A graduate of the Patricia Cornwell school of mayhem and gore, Slaughter has faithfully stitched together a fast, engaging, and diverting read complete with a strong-yet-vulnerable heroine. Characters are nicely if somewhat obviously drawn, the plot is inventive, and the narrative's pacing quickens the pulse straight to the cliff-hanging denouement. And really, what more can you ask of an ME thriller? --Michael Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Blindsighted" did not live up to its genre. It was a fairly pedestrian, highly predictable suspense thriller. Read morePublished 5 days ago by norcalgal

Probably would have been a good read. but the SURPRISES made it difficult. The surprises being that pages 261-308 were totally missing from my copy (almost 6 chapters)... Read morePublished 7 days ago by Kim Damien
The characters were very detailed and realistic. It made me cringe with disgust at some of the murders. It was a page turner right up to the very end. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Linda LaChase

Good story rushed ending somewhat predictable. After a glowing forward I felt let down. I feel like the characters especially the secondary ones could've been fleshed out a lot... Read morePublished 12 days ago by Judith van horn
