Description

"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 best seller 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.

Good but not great

While the story itself was interesting enough, I felt that the reader left a bit to be desired.

Wish narrator was same as previous series books.

Disappointing to have a different narrator, it changed the dynamics and personalities of the characters.

Never change a narrator in a series! Audiobook 101

What disappointed you about Faithless?

New narrator!

What do you think your next listen will be?

Done with the series now

Any additional comments?

It ruins a book. If the narrator changes I'm struggling to connect with the new person. It's annoying and a horrible experience. I never ask for a refund unless they change the narrator. It's like your favorite TV show then one day and the characters change with the same name/same plot. It's bad business and your asking for negative feedback. All that hard work writing a book I would typical enjoy if you kept the narrator. Shaking head.

Horrible narration

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The story is ok but the narrator is horrible.

The next book in the grant county series

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clarinda Ross?

Kathleen Early

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Kathleen Early narrated the first four books in the series. She should have continued with this one also.

Great story....Awful narration

What did you love best about Faithless?

I enjoy Karin Slaughter's writing, but I thought the narration of Clarinda Ross was terrible. I don't think I will be able to listen to any other books that she "performs". Her affected accents were horrible. I have enjoyed this series up until this book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clarinda Ross?

Kathleen Early. She did a fantastic job in the first books.

Not worth the two credits

I don't understand why this one was worth two credits. The book was good, but definitely not as good as "Triptych". It was not filled with as many twists as "Triptych", nor did it have the same character interdependency. After reading "Triptych", "Faithless" was a bit of a disappointment.

Did not like Clarinda Ross

I thought Clarinda's voice was to hick-ish for the classy Sara Linton. Sara sounded like she was a hefty male football player that lived in a trailer and smoked 3 packs a day.

Terrible Narration!!!!

Would you try another book from Karin Slaughter and/or Clarinda Ross?

I love Karin Slaughter's books and was really looking forward to finishing the Grant County series but the narration for Faithless is TERRIBLE. Never, ever change a narrator in the middle of the series. I had a hard time connecting with the characters even though I already had in the other books. Clarinda is so flat and her accents are horrendous.

New narrator!

Would you be willing to try another one of Clarinda Ross’s performances?

No. Terrible narration-really unnatural inflection of words and phrases. Terrible job voicing the men. Her narration really grated.

Any additional comments?

It's like when TV shows replace a character with a new actor. After listening to all the previous books in this series narrated by Kathleen Early I just couldn't get used to a new narrator. As if it wasn't bad enough to change the narrator in the middle of a series, the one they chose was terrible. Wish I had read this book instead of listening to it.

Painfully Bad

About 1/8 of the way through this listen, I thought, "I am going to see if I can get my money back ... this is dreadful."

I decided to hang in there out of fairness. Maybe the book will get better!
It didn't.

The basic story is pretty good, but the writing is so amateurish that I can't believe it is part of a series. I also was stunned to see that it was on the NYT best seller list. How could this be? The author writes things like, "She walked to the door. She opened it a crack. She indicated it with her head, and he knew she meant the door." (I made that up - not the actual wording.) Of course she meant the door. Do you have to tell the reader that?

On top of that, Slaughter tells us WAY too much about the romance of the two main characters. Who cares? This is a murder mystery. And their romance is unbelievable. They don't talk like real people.

The must frustrating aspect of this listen is the narrator. Ms. Ross is the worst narrator I have ever heard during years of Audible membership. Here is an example, "He walked TO the door. (PAUSE) He looked like (PAUSE) he WAS going (PAUSE) to speak UP (PAUSE) but he didn't." Enormous, unnatural pauses; a very strange cadence and rhythm; inexplicable syllablic emphasis.

Save your money. Buy something well written and well narrated.

Bad Narrator

The story line was good, but the Narrator made it hard to listen to. They should of NEVER changed Narrators in the middle of a series.
