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.

"Brilliant plotting, relentless suspense.¿" (Washington Post)
"A new synonym for terror...." (Detroit Free Press)
I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.
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.
Not the best of the series but entertaining still. Narrator did a nice job reading, providing different and consistent voices for each character.
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
Choc cake and the wine.
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.
Faithless, um with so much faith around
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.
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.
