This review is from: Blindsighted: (Grant County series 1) (Paperback)
I confess to deliberately avoiding Karin Slaughter and made the mistake of assuming she was another Patricia Cornwell/Kathy Reichs. How wrong I was!!!
This is a great debut novel with a much harder/gruesome edge to it than I was expecting. The writing style is very lucid and I found the characters intriguing. The perpetrator was also not obvious although subtle clues were there all along.
It is a good storyline with an element of realism about it, given the very gory descriptions, which draw you in.
I would certainly recommend this book.
The good thing about it is there are quite a few other Slaughter books that I can now buy with confidence!!!!!!!!

Thanks J. Mellor, always interesting to get someone else's view point. My daughter has just recommended K.Slaughter, so I was just looking at the Amazon link she had sent me. I have read P.Cornwell years ago, and currently have been reading Val McDermid who I especially enjoy, particulary the books which have Tony Hill - profiler in them, very good. Look forward to trying K.Slaughter soon.
