"A pleasant walk in the woods takes a sinister turn for police chief Jeffrey Tolliver and pediatrician/coroner Sara Linton when they stumble across the body of a young girl. Incarcerated in the ground, she has quite literally been scared to death. Detective Lena Adams is called in from vacation to help with the investigation, and the trail leads to a neighbouring county - and to a long-buried secret in Sara's mother's past. Forced to go undercover to protect the people she loves most, Sara - along with Jeffrey and Lena - soon learns that nothing comes without a price."
Having read all of Karin Slaughters books I eagerly awaited this one and was not disappointed another excellent read.
Once again we meet up with the town coroner Sara Linton and partner Chief of Police Jeffery Tolliver who having been in all of her novels you really care about them both and you feel like you know all the characters really well.
Excellent plot very well written kept me reading all night.Karin Slaughters books just get better and better already looking forward to her next one and if you havent read any of her books treat yourself to them all, you will not be disappointed.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had high hopes of this book on the back of the author's previous releases. The two main characters were building up a connection with the reader and I was sufficiently interested to want to read more. I have read more and I rather wish I hadn't! The book does get off to a good and typical start but once the reader is diverted by a devotion to profiling Lena, I began to lose interest. From that point, Sara and Jeffrey seem to take a back seat, especially Sara. Lena is a blob of indecision and for my money does not fit into the thrust of the story. The other main characters just seemed so boring and useless that I had the killer sorted quite quickly. Quite why it took the author so many pages to get rid of him, whilst everyone dithers around seemed to me to be symptomatic of the book. Follows of the author will no doubt buy the book, as I did. Whether I buy her next release is a definite maybe and will probably depend on whether Lena is still around!

This is an absolutely brilliant book - edge of the seat stuff.
The Grant County series has just got better and better with each book - however.....because so many loose ends relating to the characters seem to have been sewn up and a stand alone book is next from Slaughter, I fear this may be the end of these particular characters. I am certain, however, that her next book or series will be just as good - she is such a marvellous writer.

Format: Paperback
I have read all of Karin Slaughter's books in the Grant County series, this being the 5th. They are hugely absorbing. I love Sara and the rest of the Linton family, Jeffrey and Lena - it is always wonderful to catch up with them. I would recommend that you read the novels in order of publication if possible - I didn't and sometimes I have got a little confused with the chronology of events.

This murder is set within a religious community which has provided a great new setting for some really sinister characters and a plot that keeps you guessing. Once again Slaughter tackles socially difficult aspects of human behaviour as themes in this story - the physical and mental abuse of women and religious/cult movements. It's hard to imagine any novel will ever be quite as shocking as Kisscut in the authors' choice of subject material and this is certainly not as gruesome. I would say the plot depends more on police work and less on medical expertise than previous novels. There is still a fair amount of pathology included though for those of us who enjoy it.

Have the characters run their course over five novels? I don't think so but I admit it does sometimes get a little tedious to keep going over events in earlier novels so that this one can stand up on its' own. On the plus side however - this does make life easy for the reader.

The on/off relationship between Sara and Jeffrey? - well for me it still works but you wonder how long Slaughter will succesfully be able to keep this alive for the reader.

I loved this book. I would recommend reading it as time enjoyably spent. For anyone following the Grant County series it's obviously a must but I would be interesed to hear whether any other fans felt they didn't quite turn the pages as quickly as for the earlier novels, especially in the first half, although it did gain pace in the second. I have given Faithless 4 stars but it was border line for 5.

I've read all the Grant County books and been impressed and hooked with each one in their own way. Each one of them is different but keeps the same addiction to the characters and the believable progression that each of them goes through in their lives. Faithless is the latest in a brilliant line, it follows on superbly from Indelible and with a quality storyline that will grip you.

A terrific novel. An edge of your seat thrill ride that is chock full of suspense and mystery. This is a must read for crime genre fans. Aso check out David Demello's The Killing Game.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By G. Keogh on 8 Sep 2012
Format: Paperback
The plot had a lot of potential, with a young girl being found buried in a box in the woods. It seems she was not meant to die but was put in there as a punishment that went too far. Chief Detective Jeffrey soon traces her back to a strange cult-like group of Christians nearby.

Unfortunately the murder investigation is pushed to one side and most of the novel is concerned with the rocky relationship between Jeffrey and medical examiner Sara, and Jeffrey's sidekick Lena being caught up with an abusive boyfriend. I couldn't warm to Lena at all and found her reasons for remaining in the relationship really unconvincing. I also wasn't very enamoured with Jeffrey and I can't understand why Sara is still with him.

I think this could have been great if it focused on who had put Abby in the box, and why. When it was all wrapped up at the end it seemed like the author had thrown it in as an afterthought. The personal issues between the investigators were too dull to be anything but sideplots and unfortunately they took main stage.
