Faithless

(Grant County series 5)

'One of the boldest thriller writers working today' TESS GERRITSEN
'Her characters, plot, and pacing are unrivalled' MICHAEL CONNELLY

The fifth book in Karin Slaughter's #1 bestselling GRANT COUNTY series.
_________________________________________
A walk in the woods takes a sinister turn for police chief Jeffrey Tolliver and medical examiner Sara Linton when they stumble across the body of a young girl. Incarcerated in the ground, all the initial evidence indicates that she has, quite literally, been scared to death.

But as Sara embarks on the autopsy, something even more horrifying comes to light. Something which shocks even Sara. Detective Lena Adams, talented but increasingly troubled, is called in from vacation to help with the investigation - and the trail soon leads to the neighbouring county, an isolated community, and a terrible secret ...

Praise for Faithless

Brutal and chilling

Daily Mirror

Slaughter has the money-shot gore but her most visceral writing is when she is simply ratcheting up the suspense ... Great cliffhanger ending too

Observer

Faithless confirms her at the summit of the school of writers specialising in forensic medicine and terror ... Slaughter's characters talk in believable dialogue. She's excellent at portraying the undertones and claustrophobia of communities where everyone knows everyone else's business, and even better at creating an atmosphere of lurking evil

The Times
