Part of the Georgia series
This is the third Will Trent novel, from the No. 1 Bestseller. Three and a half years ago former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton moved to Atlanta hoping to leave her tragic past behind her.
Now working as a doctor in Atlanta's Grady Hospital she is starting to piece her life together.
But when a severely wounded young woman is brought in to the emergency room, she finds herself drawn back into a world of violence and terror.
The woman has been hit by a car but, naked and brutalised, it's clear that she has been the prey of a twisted mind.
When Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Investigation Team returns to the scene of the accident, he stumbles on a torture chamber buried deep beneath the earth. And this hidden house of horror reveals a ghastly truth - Sara's patient is just the first victim of a sick, sadistic killer.
Wrestling the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner Faith Mitchell find themselves at the centre of a grisly murder hunt. And Sara, Will and Faith - each with their own wounds and their own secrets - are all that stand between a madman and his next crime...

Review by jbrubacher
Two women were held and tortured in a small cave dug into the ground. They escape, one survives, and the investigation begins: who are they and who did this to them? The author has combined her two series and so Sara Linton from Grant County works with Will Trent and Faith Mitchell from Atlanta.For some reason I've always enjoyed the Will Trent series more, probably because whereas 'Triptych' blew me away, 'Blindsighted' was "merely" very good. The combination of the two works. Although this book starts and ends with Sara, most of the time is spent with Will and Faith, and since it's their turf this makes sense. As usual the author uses the time to expand on their personal lives as well as the case and more than once I wanted to lean my head right into the book and and yell at the characters about the mistakes they were making.I enjoyed this book almost as much as 'Triptych.' It's a good and gut-wrenching mystery with solid investigation and another step in the lives of a few very flawed characters. Can't wait for the next.
Review by RavenswoodPublishing
Karin Slaughter is the absolute best crime/mystery writer I have come across in this day and age. Her novels will simply astound you with their heart-racing moments and intrigue. Every time I pick one of her novels up I cannot stop reading until I'm done and I still find myself begging for more. She's a writer with no fear! She wields her instruments like a knife ready to dig in deep and take you by surprise at every turn!
