"Brilliant plotting, relentless suspense," raved the Washington Post. "A new synonym for terror," crowned the Detroit Free Press. The critics agree: no one writes suspense like Karin Slaughter, whose thrillers featuring medical examiner Sara Linton and her ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, have propelled her to the top of best seller lists the world over. Now Slaughter fuses her unmatched grasp of forensic science and a mastery of complex relationships in a riveting tale of faith, doubt, and murder.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.
"A compulsively readable narrative." (Booklist)
"Slaughter's fifth Grant County case offers tough love, suspenseful spadework and life-affirming vigor." (Publishers Weekly)

Never change a narrator in a series! Audiobook 101
Done with the series now
It ruins a book. If the narrator changes I'm struggling to connect with the new person. It's annoying and a horrible experience. I never ask for a refund unless they change the narrator. It's like your favorite TV show then one day and the characters change with the same name/same plot. It's bad business and your asking for negative feedback. All that hard work writing a book I would typical enjoy if you kept the narrator. Shaking head.
Great story....Awful narration
I enjoy Karin Slaughter's writing, but I thought the narration of Clarinda Ross was terrible. I don't think I will be able to listen to any other books that she "performs". Her affected accents were horrible. I have enjoyed this series up until this book.
Kathleen Early. She did a fantastic job in the first books.
