I don t find myself in this situation often enough attempting to put my thoughts on display for a book and series that I ve not only adored for years but read countless times Let s be honest rereads have been an infreuent occurrence in my world My best uess at the number of trips I ve made to Grant County over the years though six Yeah I m oing with six at least While I was the furthest thing from blindsided I remembered about 9899% of the plot oing in I still relished every single moment Maybe even appreciated the setting a tad considering I now call the peach state homeThere are countless reasons why Karin Slaughter s name has resided at the top of my list of favorite authors over the years Without The GI Bride getting ahead of myself too much here I respect the direction she takes this series despite the sopping mess I always seem to revert to in the end The main reason why I veravitated towards Slaughter s work time and again continues to be her uncanny ability to deliver an exceptional literary journey and to do so on multiple fronts clever plotting unrelenting suspense detailed but interesting criminal cases and the characters I love and love to hate And of course I can t downplay the uts and ore With a name like Slaughter would you expect anything less than blood soaked pages and a depraved killer I think notThe brutal murder et ready for the heinous happenings of a college professor rocks the small Georgia town of Heartsdale Landing Jeffrey Grant County s chief of police and

sentimental and just for me one with no expectations that I already know I love I m really pumped toand just for me one with no expectations that I already know I love I m really pumped to this series from the beginning again as it s one of my all time favorites and I m hoping to write a proper review this o around Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter is a 2015 Harper publication This is the first book in the Grant County series which was originally published way back in 2002 I have read this book before a long time ago before Goodreads had even launched However I decided to start the Grant County series over despite having read a few of them already It s a long story but basically I Cheyenne: A Sweet Historical Romance got some of the Grant County books mixed up with the Will Trent series which caused areat deal of confusion for me which is something I did a lot until GR came along to help me organize my books and before I recieved valuable hints and suggestions from other readers So although I know how things work out for some of the characters in future installments I want to understand the full story and refresh my memory about a few things before I continue with the Trent series Sara is a pediatrician and works part time as a coroner The part time work puts her directly in contact with her ex husband Jeffrey a man she has a complicated history with and with whom she still carries a torch But when Jeffrey s deputy Lena loses her sister in a very violent way it stirs up bad memories for Sara and forces her to work up close and personal with her Jeffrey while they try to put a killer behind bars This is a very The Battle of Maldon and Other Old English Poems gritty crime thriller with some prettyruesome and lurid descriptions which is certainly not for the faint of heart There s also some fantastic personal interactions some of which nearly choked me up Wow I had forgotten how ood this book was It has perfect pacing well timed twists and in depth characterizations that are very rare for a first in a series novel and of course let s not forget that stunning shocker at the end Although this book was written fifteen years ago it stands up well to the test of time and blew me away even knowing all I know now So if you have started the Will Trent series without reading this series first I still recommend picking these up If you haven t read Will Trent yet I STRONGLY urge you to read the Grant County books first because it will really help you understand the backstories that crossover into the Trent series later 45 stars I decided to read the Grant County series by Karin Slaughter having read Blindsighted a while ago I thought I should ive it a reread.
