This was not my first book by Slaughter. I read this book after reading Cop town and Pretty Girls and now I am hooked. Slaughter has quickly become one of my favorite mystery writers. She is a gritty and intelligent writer. I love the research she puts into her books. Having a background in Forensics, I really appreciate her books and the research she puts into this.
In Blindsighted, a professor is found murdered in a restaurant. Her Murder hits very close to home to Sara, who is the town’s Pediatrician and Coroner. It is also Sara who discovers the body. The professor turns out to the twin sister of a police officer who works for Sara’s ex-husband, Jeffrey.
Will Sara’s past hold the key to solving this case? What will happen between her and her ex-husband Jeffrey?
As stated above, I love Slaughter’s attention to detail. I love the police work involved, the investigations, the forensics, even the autopsies are well done in this book. But mostly, I love the relationships between the characters. I love the love story between Sara and Jeffrey. Just enough is told to make me like them both. To get me involved in their history and continued story.
Plus, well there is a killer on the loose. Who is it. Will there be more victims? Will the police save the day?
I’ll never tell. Pick up this book and read it already!
