WATCH WILL TRENT ON ABC • This edition features an introduction on the origins of the Will Trent novels
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. But then a tortured young woman becomes a patient in her ER. . . .
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, single-handedly exposing a hidden house of horror buried beneath the earth . . . and then finds another victim.
Wresting the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner, Faith Mitchell, 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.
With Undone, Karin Slaughter weaves together the moving, powerful human stories of three unforgettable characters from her New York Times bestselling novels Faithless and Fractured, who collide for the first time in an electrifying race against the clock—and a duel with unspeakable human evil.
Bestseller Slaughter brings together characters from her two series for the first time with electrifying results. Dr. Sara Linton, who lost her husband in 2007's Beyond Reach, has left rural Grant County for a new life in an underfunded Atlanta hospital. Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents Faith Mitchell and Will Trent, last seen in 2008's Fractured, happen to be in the hospital's ER when a woman known only as "Anna" arrives. Anna was hit by a car after escaping from an unknown captor, whose underground torture chamber Will soon uncovers near the accident site, along with the body of a second woman he believes was held in the same bunker. When another woman is snatched, Faith and Will realize they're chasing a sadistic serial killer. As the GBI agents try to connect the victims, Sara becomes more involved in the investigation, even as it dredges up painful memories from her past. Slaughter ups the emotional ante with every twist and turn in this disturbing thriller.
Great page turner
Karin Slaughter is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors! This book is. Quick read. Some of the details are a bit disturbing, but told in a way that makes you want to find out who did it.
Enjoy this series
I really like the Will Trent series.
Undone - good premise less than stellar writing
I love the characters in the series and the concept behind this story. I do find; however, that the writing includes too much expository text and lines like 'he knew that....'. Often it seems like this writing style assumes the reader won't make the jump and needs clarification. While I typically don't need it, if necessary, there are cleaner more thoughtful ways to include those bits of information. In spite of all this, I keep reading, passing over paragraphs or sometimes pages of extraneous or laborious text describing one of the characters feelings about something or overworked prose about surroundings. The characters seem to make it worth it. On to the next in the series.
