“Brilliant plotting, relentless suspense,” raved the Washington Post. “A new synonym for terror,” crowned the Detroit Free Press. The critics agree: no one writes suspense like Karin Slaughter, whose thrillers featuring medical examiner Sara Linton and her ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, have propelled her to the top of bestseller lists the world over. Now Slaughter fuses her unmatched grasp of forensic science and a mastery of complex relationships in a riveting 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, 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Afsana | 2/14/2014

    " this was a very slow mving book. which seemed to revolve a bit too much on personal lives and there was no pace "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stina Smith | 2/14/2014

    " I just love the Grant County series... Karin Slaughter is one of my most favourite authors and her books are totally unputdownable. "Faithless" is no different. Touching a darker side in places of one of the regular characters, she gives a fantastic twist to it at the end of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Antonette | 2/9/2014

    " Another awesome book by Karin Slaughter, I don't think I've ever read a book by her that I didn't like. It took me a while to get into the story as the family seemed to consist of many persons and that puzzled me a bit in the beginning but halfway through the book I was hooked an couldn't put it down. I liked the open ending though, although I expect to know what's gonna happen as someone revealed an important storyline coming up in the Grant County series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 1/30/2014

    " Quick easy read. Not a classic but it was entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 1/26/2014

    " Loved this. What a psychotic killer! Karin Slaughter is a fabulous author and I love her work, even though I seem to be reading her books backwards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 12/29/2013

    " I began reading these books out of order because I didn't realize it was a series at the time, and now it's killing me because I've spoiled it for myself, knowing what is going to happen to one of my favorite characters in these stories, and now I'm dreading reading the next installment in the Grant County series. I like these stories even though they are a bit gritty, but it is the characters/story people who I enjoy following. I'll continue to read along, even though I know what's coming.....A word to the wise: read these books in order. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaime | 12/27/2013

    " All of the books featuring Sarah Linton and Jeffrey Tolliver are must reads "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 10/26/2013

    " It was good. Just a bit slower than the previous instalments in the build-up. But the solution worked out pretty great and the way the book ended just made me gasp and grin with triumph... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 8/24/2013

    " One of my favorite aspects of the Grant County series is the back stories that weave through the main plot line. This particular installment was lacking in details about Jeffrey and Sara. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelby | 7/11/2013

    " I love this series, this book was just a bit off for me. I didn't feel the usual closeness to the characters. Looking forward to the rest of the Grant county books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Yoon | 1/10/2013

    " I just love Karin Slaughter's books. But I didn't like the whole Bible thumping background in this one. Still, a great book. "

    " Good mystery kept me reading. A bit much of foul language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 10/30/2011

    " If found this interesting, yet a bit far fetched at times. The villain was rather obvious towards the middle, but it in no way made me not want to finish and find out the "why's" etc. Plus we get great news at the end. Who could ask for more? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janai | 9/3/2011

    " Part 2 of A Faint Cold Fear. Once again, ok. This time the emotional roller coaster was the who dun it characters with just a little more info on the main characters. "

    " This was an enjoyable book for a crime thriller but a bit long - I found myself wanting it to be over about 2/3rds of the way through. Despite this the plot and characters were well written. "

As they weigh through suspects they are constantly hitting dead ends, from members of the family, the elusive church. A great fast paced read that keeps the reader on edge the entire book! "
