I had never read this author before but got this book in a box of books trade because the story sounded interesting..It ended up being beyond interesting it was fantastic!

The story is suspensful and the main characters well developed. I felt like I could really connect to them and what was going on in the book. It's a definite must read for thriller fans.

The first in the Grant County series. After reading this and her follow up books, Karin Slaughter is now my all-time favorite author! Her stories are incredible! I read one her her books in 2 days! That's amazing for me since it usually takes me about a week or more to read a novel! I recommend her books to everyone but I also recommend that you read them in order starting with this one.

A fellow PBSer recommended the "Georgia" series by Slaughter. These are the first books she wrote and Blindsighted is the first of them. Hard to believe this is a first novel--the plot is good, reader involvement is excellent, and there were very few times when the action seemed to drag. All in all, this is a book to read and enjoy.

This was my first Karin Slaughter book, and apparently the first Grant County book is a great place to start. Slaughter does not shy away from violence or grisly descriptions, but unlike many of her male counterparts her female characters are well-developed and realistic.

The only part of this book that was a little weak was the ending; I thought the revelation of who-dunnit came a bit too early. Other than that small complaint this is a near perfect thriller.

I am looking forward to reading the rest of the Grant County series, because there are clearly some storylines involving this book's main characters that could be continued.
