Saturday night dates at the skating rink have been a tradition in the small southern town of Heartsdale for as long as anyone can remember, but when a teenage quarrel explodes into a deadly shoot-out, Sara Linton -- the town's pediatrician and medical examiner -- finds herself entangled in a terrible tragedy.

What seemed at first to be a horrific individual catastrophe proves to have wider implications. The autopsy reveals evidence of long-term abuse, of ritualistic self-mutilation, but when Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver start to investigate, they are frustrated at every turn.

The children surrounding the victim close ranks. The families turn their backs. Then a young girl is abducted and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to an even more brutal crime, one far more shocking than anyone could have imagined. Meanwhile, detective Lena Adams, still recovering from her sister's death and her own brutal attack, finds herself drawn to a young man who might hold the answers. But unless Lena, Sara, and Jeffrey can uncover the deadly secrets the children hide, it's going to happen again.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Engrossing…[with] meticulous characterizations.” 


  • “Few young writers show more promise than the thirty-year-old Slaughter. She writes…with skill, anger, sensitivity, and compassion.” 

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution 

  • “Slaughter has again written a fast-paced thriller for those not faint of heart.” 

    Library Journal

  • “It’s not easy to transcend a model like Patricia Cornwell, but Slaughter does so in a thriller whose breakneck plotting and not-for-the-squeamish forensics provide grim manifestations of a deeper evil her mystery trumpets without ever quite containing.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 2/13/2014

    " Yes, the central theme of this book isn't easy to take, but it's wonderfully written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Vicki Anderson | 2/11/2014

    " Equally interesting compared to book 1. There is a lot of reflection back to the crimes in book 1 along with a whole new, equally graphic crime plot that focused on crimes against children. I enjoyed the return of all the characters from book 1, and the crime investigating in this one was a little more predictable making for a pretty quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Karendenice | 2/4/2014

    " This is the second book in this series. I really enjoyed it. IMO the first one was much better. I'm curious to see what the third will be like. It does have alot of twists and turns and definitely keeps you quessing. The major characters really stand out, but I would've like to see some of the lesser major ones in this book described and their feelings show up more. All in all a very satisfying read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Betsy | 1/16/2014

    " I thoroughly enjoyed the 2nd book in the Grant Series. I evened liked it better than Blindsighted. This story is more twisted, and we get more into the main characters back stories. Karin Slaughter is a great storyteller and really draws the reader into the story. I cannot wait to read #3! "
