Publisher's Summary

The victim was buried alive in the Georgia woods, then killed in a horrifying fashion. When Sara Linton and Jeffrey Tolliver stumble upon the body, both become consumed with finding out who killed the pretty, impeccably dressed young woman. And for Sara and Jeffrey, a harrowing journey begins, one that will test their own turbulent relationship and draw dozens of lives into the case.Lena Adams is one of them. A Grant County detective for years, she has her own reasons for being drawn to this case and a fierce drive to see justice done. For these three people, who have each seen the darkest side of human nature, the body of the murdered girl is but the first in a series of shocking and sordid revelations.
Now, as Jeffrey and Sara narrow the field of suspects, they must confront their own doubts and indiscretions, while Lena Adams sees herself reflected in the frightened eyes of a battered woman who may be the key figure in the case. As Faithless builds to a stunning and unforgettable climax, Karin Slaughter masterfully brings together strands of interlocking lives, family secrets, and hidden passions with one astounding truth: the identity of a killer who is more evil and dangerous than anyone could have guessed.

PREDICTABLE

IT WAS AN OK MURDER MYSTERY IF YOU WANTED SOMETHING FAST WITH NO BIG SURPRISE ENDING. THE READER WAS OK. GOOD TO LISTEN TO IN THE CAR, BUT TRUST ME NOTHING DEEP, A NO BRAINER.

Best so far

I think this was the best book of the series so far. I can actually see KS writing getting better as the series progresses. When Sarah goes to see Jeffery at work two gunman come into the police precinct and begin assassinating police officers. They have basically no demands and no one knows why they are there. KS then takes us back to when Jeffery and Sarah first met and how they solve a crime that goes even further back in Jeffery's history. Very suspenseful and a great back story. Looking forward the the next one.
