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)
I don't understand why this one was worth two credits. The book was good, but definitely not as good as "Triptych". It was not filled with as many twists as "Triptych", nor did it have the same character interdependency. After reading "Triptych", "Faithless" was a bit of a disappointment.
This could have been a really good book had there not been a lot of gaps. I think for an unabridged reading the author could have gotten more indepth with the pasts of two of the women characters. I don't want to say which ones but anyone preparing to listen or who has already listened will understand.
I really enjoyed this book. I am originally from Ga. and getting to listen to this narrator made me feel I was right back in the heart of the south. She did a fantastic job with making each character have his or her unique voice.
The story was entriging as well. It made you really feel as if you were there, present with the characters in the book in the woods digging up a grave, or in the room watching the abusive husband beat his wife.
She was perfectly detailed, shedding light on topics that aren't often written about but not going over board to the point of bordom.
I really enjoyed it alot!
Don't like the plot, don't like the story, don't like how it drags on, don't like how it don't have no action. i only kept on reading for that redemption but the book never got there. terrible story line, too much main characters crying over how she is afraid of whatever ....regret this and regret that. the whole book is a big regret!
I enjoyed the book. The ending surprised me but all the loose ends were wrapped up. I hate books that have unresolved stuff. I'll listen to more of her novels.
I really enjoy how you can pick up any book and start reading even if out of series. I started Karin Slaughter with the Will Trent series and then discovered this Grant County series and even though I know one of the major characters dies, I could still picture and follow the story with no problem. It was an awesome "who done it" to the end!
Never listened to her before but I really like the way she changes voices for the characters with different accent.
I enjoyed the story line. As all of Karin Slaughters books I have a hard time putting the book down.
I am an audiobook junkie and listen to at least three to four books per month.
Slaughter doesn't dilly-dally over details. This is true of all of her novels.
All of Slaughter's books flow from one to the next. I hate to read them out of order but it's easy to catch up. One book is nto dependant on the other.
I like this series a lot but this narrator almost made me have to skip this one - this person had me hearing banjos all the way through and i just really didn't have these characters depicted as that "hokey" or back woods. Also - I'd be shocked if anyone were pleased with the anti-climatic ending after the horrible last fight scene..... just yuck. :(
I must admit that I enjoyed triptych more however, it was still a very good read. The narration by Carinda Ross was excellent too! I recommend it to all who enjoy a really well written who done it!
