In the trauma center of Atlanta’s busiest hospital, Sara Linton treats the city’s poor, wounded, and unlucky—and finds refuge from the tragedy that rocked her life in rural Grant County. Then, in one instant, Sara is thrust into a frantic police investigation, coming face-to-face with a tall driven detective and his quiet female partner…. In Undone, three unforgettable characters from Karin Slaughter’s New York Times bestselling 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 buried beneath the earth. 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—a smart, upscale, independent young mother—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.

In her latest suspense masterpiece, Karin Slaughter weaves together the moving, powerful human stories of characters as real as they are complex and unforgettable. At the same time she has crafted a work of dazzling storytelling and spine-tingling mystery—as three people, each with their own wounds and their own secrets, are all that stands between a madman and his next crime.

My thoughts…

This third book in the Will Trent series creates a link with the Grant County series by introducing Sara Linton to the series. Will and Sara in the same book! I couldn’t read this fast enough. I loved the Grant County series and now Will Trent is another favorite.

Faithless (Grant County #5) by Karin Slaughter

Sara is from Grant County but has relocated to Atlanta following the death of her husband. She's in a new city, completely changed her life, and is still recovering from the horrible events in Beyond Reach (Grant County #6). She meets Special Agents Will Trent and Faith Mitchell at the hospital when Faith has a fainting spell, but soon finds herself embroiled in the case Will and Faith are working on.

Several women who have been tortured or are missing. Will and Faith from the Georgia Bureau Investigation take over the case when they discover another victim and suspect that a recently abducted woman might also be about to undergo the same fate. It becomes a race against time to find the links between these women and the warped individual torturing them.

Undone is my favorite of Will Trent Series, especially now that Sara has been introduced. Karin Slaughter's thrillers are always very character driven and the relationships between the characters are key to enjoying them. I would suggest reading the Grant County series before starting this series, Will Trent. A lot happens in this installment and like the first two in the series, this one had me on the edge of seat the entire time I was reading it.

“Sara studied him. "Is that a Chihuahua behind your back?"
"No, I'm just happy to see you"
Sara gave him a confused smile, and he reluctantly showed her Betty.”
