Publisher's Summary

New York Times best seller Karin Slaughter brings back her two most fascinating and complex characters - medical examiner Sara Linton and her ex-husband, Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver - in a heart-pounding 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 young woman. For them, a harrowing journey begins, one that will test their own turbulent relationship and draw dozens of life into the case. 

For as Jeffrey and Sara move further down a trail of shocking surprises and hidden passions, neither is prepared for the most stunning discovery of all: the identity of a killer who is more evil and dangerous than anyone could have guessed.

Never change a narrator in a series! Audiobook 101

What disappointed you about Faithless?

New narrator!

What do you think your next listen will be?

Done with the series now

Any additional comments?

It ruins a book. If the narrator changes I'm struggling to connect with the new person. It's annoying and a horrible experience. I never ask for a refund unless they change the narrator. It's like your favorite TV show then one day and the characters change with the same name/same plot. It's bad business and your asking for negative feedback. All that hard work writing a book I would typical enjoy if you kept the narrator. Shaking head.

Great story....Awful narration

What did you love best about Faithless?

I enjoy Karin Slaughter's writing, but I thought the narration of Clarinda Ross was terrible. I don't think I will be able to listen to any other books that she "performs". Her affected accents were horrible. I have enjoyed this series up until this book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clarinda Ross?

Kathleen Early. She did a fantastic job in the first books.

New narrator!

Would you be willing to try another one of Clarinda Ross’s performances?

No. Terrible narration-really unnatural inflection of words and phrases. Terrible job voicing the men. Her narration really grated.

Any additional comments?

It's like when TV shows replace a character with a new actor. After listening to all the previous books in this series narrated by Kathleen Early I just couldn't get used to a new narrator. As if it wasn't bad enough to change the narrator in the middle of a series, the one they chose was terrible. Wish I had read this book instead of listening to it.

Horrible narration

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The story is ok but the narrator is horrible.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The next book in the grant county series

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clarinda Ross?

Kathleen Early

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Kathleen Early narrated the first four books in the series. She should have continued with this one also.

Terrible Narration!!!!

Would you try another book from Karin Slaughter and/or Clarinda Ross?

I love Karin Slaughter's books and was really looking forward to finishing the Grant County series but the narration for Faithless is TERRIBLE. Never, ever change a narrator in the middle of the series. I had a hard time connecting with the characters even though I already had in the other books. Clarinda is so flat and her accents are horrendous.

Not worth the two credits

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.

Bad Narrator

The story line was good, but the Narrator made it hard to listen to. They should of NEVER changed Narrators in the middle of a series.

Did not like Clarinda Ross

I thought Clarinda's voice was to hick-ish for the classy Sara Linton. Sara sounded like she was a hefty male football player that lived in a trailer and smoked 3 packs a day.

Ugh, this narrator! Please rerecord with K. Early

I LOVE all of Karin Slaughter's books, and love that she uses Kathleen Early to narrate most of them. This is a rare book that is not narrated by Ms. Early and struggled to get through it.

The story itself was great, but so hard to listen to.

Sara and Jeffrey stumble (literally) upon a grave in the woods and they struggle to find leads to identify the girl and then find the suspect. The list of potentials is long, and Jeffery, Sara and Lena all have to put aside their prejudices to accept where the evidence leads them.
