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.

    "decent"

    Not the best of the series but entertaining still. Narrator did a nice job reading, providing different and consistent voices for each character.

    "Great mystery. Great ending!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Faithless?

    Choc cake and the wine.


    Have you listened to any of Francie Swift’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and she is great in this one also. She's great with different character's voices and keeping their voices through out the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Faithless, um with so much faith around


    Any additional comments?

    Great series!

    "Not Faithless to the reader-listener"

    Sure, this is not a deep twisty 5-subplot story, but the storyline IS clear and moves along at more than a plodding pace. The narrator did a fine job of reading - more than a monotone, I'd say her voice is soothing. Careful if you are listening while in bed, or driving - you'll 'drop out' and miss something. I missed the importance of Sara and Jeffery I'm not sure what the story has to do with their relationship, and there is something at the end that I completely missed, but... I DID space out a few times while listening so put it down to that.

    "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.
