Karin Slaughter

Biography

Date of birth:06 January 1971

Georgia native Karin Slaughter's first thriller Blindsighted netted its young author a much publicized "six-figure"contract and, when published in 2001, drew plausible comparisons to Thomas B. Harris and Patricia Cornwell. Blindsighted and its sequels, Kisscut (2002) and A Faint Cold Fear (2003) are all set in the small southern town of Heartsdale in Grant County.

Slaughter's books track the lives of three principal characters: Sara Linton bookends the lives of Heartsdale residents by doubling as pediatrician and medical examiner. She's in a ricochet relationship with ex-husband Jeffrey Tolliver, the local chief of police. Backing up Tolliver is Slaughter's darkest and most intriguing character, Lena Adams, a young cop who sustained a devastating personal loss, and who underwent a horrible attack in Blindsighted. Slaughter's ensuing novels have unflinchingly tracked Lena's uncertain road to recovery or eventual self-extermination.
