The sleepy town of Heartsdale, Georgia, is jolted into panic when Sara Linton, the town's pediatrician and coroner, finds Sibyl Adams, a young college professor, dead in the local diner. As well as being viciously raped, Sibyl has been cut: two deep knife wounds form a lethal cross over her stomach. But it's only when Sara starts to perform the postmortem that the full extent of the killer's brutality becomes clear.

Police chief Jeffrey Tolliver -- Sara's exhusband -- is in charge of the investigation, and when a second victim is found crucified only a few days later, he has to face the fact that Sibyl's murder wasn't just a personal attack. What he's dealing with is a sadistic rapist turned killer who is terrorizing rural Grant County.

Jeffrey isn't alone in his search. Lena Adams, the county's sole female detective, wants to see justice done since her sister was the first victim. Sara, too, cannot escape the terror. A secret from her past could hold the key to finding the killer-unless he finds her first.

Sara Linton is no Kay Scarpetta and her villain is a mere shadow of the complex, chilling Hannibal Lecter, but—forgiving inept, trivia-cluttered dialogue and manifest lack of firsthand fluency in the medical arena—the offbeat characters and setting are engaging enough to leave readers awaiting a ...
