Faithless: A Novel | Karin Slaughter
19 posts | 40 read | 23 to read
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Karin Slaughter's Unseen. “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 bestseller 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.

Really obsessed with Karin Slaughter! I love the main characters and the stories about them. This part of the Grant County series was so enjoyable! Always keeps me guessing.

Another good showing from Karin Slaughter. In rural Catooga County, a church/farm experiences a higher than normal number of deaths. Is this simply due to the nature of recovering addicts they serve or something more sinister? Twists and drama make this an entertaining #crime #thriller. Narration in a southern dialect (note I didn‘t say “kuntry”) adds some Georgian flavor.

I loved this installment of Karin Slaughter‘s Grant County series. It was so much better than the 3th and 4th! This one is about a religious community where strange things happen and no one wants to talk. Of course there is a gruesome murder, but also lots of twists and strong characters. My favorite Sara Linton book so far! One more book to go.

Book number 62 of my year! Yay 😃

Caffeinated_Reader It wasn‘t the thrilling page turner that most of her books are but it was ok. Would I recommend this one? Probably not before recommending a lot of others first lol I give it 5/10 stars 9mo

Book 5 in the Grant County series and it's no surprise that I enjoyed it! This one was a smidge convoluted and there were a bunch of characters to keep up with, but that's really just me nitpicking. Another solid Slaughter read 😄

I generally like Karin Slaughter‘s books and this one was no exception. Although I will have to say the domestic violence aspect of the plot angered me — not because it was bad (it wasn‘t) — but because the very idea that there are people out there who would do such things to the people they claim to love just enrages me. Good characters and plot, and a mostly satisfying ending.

TrishB There are definitely those people 😔 1y

A well written thriller that explores our preconceived beliefs about the religious. Yes, some are bad but most are good, just like all groups. The murders were horrifying and played on my fears. The resolution of the murder was satisfying. The personal lives of the detectives was not as satisfying for me but not bad either. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ book 📚

YESSSSS here is the relationship and banter that I want with Jeffrey + Sara, and I am even happy with where Lena is at the end of this book. ( I think. I‘m always afraid to say with her-she‘s such a wild card.)

The crime/procedure isn‘t my favorite of the series but I love the way Lena + Jeffrey + Sara work together in and out of the office.

KSlaughter always scares me for what‘s coming up on the literal last page or two. GASP + bring on book 6.

TrishB A great series 👍🏻 2y

My mother-in-law and I have been trading this series back and forth this year. It‘s such a great series, and the characters are solid, real people. I also love that my MIL and I bond over books so much. She‘s the best!

Maike I've only read some of her Will Trent books so far, but I love her writing. Sara just made an appearance in Undone, so I'll make sure to check out her storyline as well 2y
RiotMom @Maike yes! I‘ve really enjoyed them. I‘ve only read one Will Trent so far, but it was good. Looking forward to jumping into him when I finish this series! 2y
LauraBrook That is awesome! My mom and I share books, and it makes us both so happy. Also, I love that Tina is peeking out! #ilovebutts 2y
