In Undone, three unforgettable characters from Karin Slaughter's New York Times best-selling novels Faithless and Fractured collide for the first time, entering an electrifying race against the clock - and a duel with unspeakable human evil.
In the backwoods of suburban Atlanta, where Sara's patient was found, local police have set up their investigation. But Georgia Bureau of Investigation detective Will Trent doesn't wait for the go-ahead from his boss - he plunges through police lines, through the brooding woods, and single-handedly exposes a hidden house of horror. Then he finds another victim.
Wresting the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner, Faith Mitchell - a woman keeping explosive secrets of her own - are called into a related investigation. Another woman has been snatched. For the two cops out on the hunt, for the doctor trying to bring her patient back to life, the truth hits like a hammer: The killer's torture chamber has been found, but the killer is still at work.

Love the books, great series.....but I was disappointed to listen to Broken before Undone. Read/listen to Undone first. Broken happens after the Undone novel. After reading Triptych and Fractured, I was excited to start Broken. Right from the beginning, I felt like I missed a book. I went back to the series list, just to make sure I downloaded the right book. Audible, please fix. Triptych, Fractured, Undone, Broken. Starting Criminal now.
I read so I can write
Like the other books in this series, Ms. Slaughter has written a story that plugs something really evil into a good mystery.
It's like after about 20 years as a police officer someone chooses 6 or 7 of the worst crimes experienced and writes about them.
These books are not for the weak at heart, but they are good choices for mystery lovers.
This particular narrator does not appeal to me. It is a shame all the books in the series weren't read by the same narrator, but as usual there seems no rhyme or reason how narrators are chosen for these audio books. This narrator took this book down a star for me.
A former accountant and staff trainer. Now retired, I enjoy knitting and weaving. I enjoy intelligent, insightful books with lead characters I respect. I deplore novels fille with gratuitous violence and depraved sexual behavior written to shock the reader.
Narrator was quite good. Main characters were realistic people and not
Unlikely. The book description and other reviews did not allude to the sadistic, ugly narrative.
I don't know if I could finish reading a novel ever again. I am so addicted to listening to books I have little interest in reading!
Once again I flew through this one. By now, this is my fourth venture into Slaughter World, I've become so engrossed in the lives of her characters that I have to finish the entire series.
Why only 4 stars? Well my first 3 experiences were homeruns but this one is a solid double. Many thanks to the reviewer tip that alerted us that the order was wrong.
I liked the narrator, but she's in competition with 3 superior performances.
If you like a really good mystery with great writing and characters you can identify with, you'll love this one!
This was my first time to listen to a Karin Slaughter book... It was great!
This author was right up there with my favorites. Tami Hoag, J.D. Robb, Tess Gerritsen to name a few
It was one of those that you couldn't stop listening to.
Fifty years of reading is not nearly enough. I need many, many, many more.
I like Ms Slaughter's writing style very much. She slowly exposes you to both her characters and her stories. I am a reader who looks for characters that I love to know -- they do not need to be likable they just have to be interesting. And Ms Slaughter gives me very unique, completely believable and highly imperfect characters. Will is likable and confusing. He is someone I can imagine that I may not like upon our first meeting. Faith is big-hearted and yet so snarky. Amanda is not at all likable and yet I feel as though it comes from her own insecurities. Each of them is full of flaws and I love that. And then their are the plot lines. Each book builds slowly and the pieces of the puzzle aren't all laid upon the table at the start. It feels like some pieces have remained in the box, others fell under the couch; and my little brother stole a few just to confuse me. Too often in mysteries there is no mystery, but Ms Slaughter doesn't let you guess the ending right from the Prologue. I love that.
Her style reminds me a bit of John Sandford's though his crimes are more grisly in my opinion. And the character development reminds me a bit of early books from Patricia Cornwall. However, her main characters are too "perfect" for my liking. Will is messier which is a really great thing.
Even though I haven't yet finished this book it's good. Only problem I had is it repeats itself so far 3 different time. I only have 37 min. left but I think I know how it's going to end. Maybe I should of waited until then, but I have enjoyed this book and thought you all should know.
Will Trent of course.
I like her voice. She doesn't make me crazy like some.
Wish I could but didn't have 16 hours to spare.
I'm going to finish this book now. Hope all enjoy it as much as I have.
I felt sorry for the childhood Will had to endure.
Didn't want to turn the story off.
What the bad guy does to these women is horrific, but if you can watch a Criminal Minds on TV....or a CSI, you've seen worse. Story is very well written, narration is excellent (surprisingly there are 2 times a short section of the dialogue repeats exactly). Loved Will and Faith and their unusual partnership. Learned more about anorexia than I'd ever heard and it really opened my eyes to my relationship with an anorexic friend. Anyway, I recommend this book. I enjoyed it very much (although I knew who did it very early) and am looking for another Karin Slaughter book right now.
