Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling 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. 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 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.

Superb narration of a great story

The story and writing were great to begin with... but they were frequently eclipsed in my mind by the outstanding narration. As a musician/vocalist by training, I would like to think I have a special appreciation for auditory nuance... this recording set a gold standard in my mind for what can be done by a gifted narrator.

inspire Strong Women

Karen has a knack for making every female reader want to swagger when they walk letting the world know they won't take any more B.S.

SERIES IN WRONG ORDER!!!!!!

Love the books, great series.....but I was disappointed to listen to Broken before Undone. Read/listen to Undone first. Broken happens after the Undone novel. After reading Triptych and Fractured, I was excited to start Broken. Right from the beginning, I felt like I missed a book. I went back to the series list, just to make sure I downloaded the right book. Audible, please fix. Triptych, Fractured, Undone, Broken. Starting Criminal now.

Slaughter's got it goin on!

Once again I flew through this one. By now, this is my fourth venture into Slaughter World, I've become so engrossed in the lives of her characters that I have to finish the entire series.

Why only 4 stars? Well my first 3 experiences were homeruns but this one is a solid double. Many thanks to the reviewer tip that alerted us that the order was wrong.

I liked the narrator, but she's in competition with 3 superior performances.

If you like a really good mystery with great writing and characters you can identify with, you'll love this one!

Went on too long

The story was okay but over exaggerated. Everyone is mad at everyone. The torture is just too much I liked the first two books, but I don't think I will continue with this series. Will Trent is a great character but I am not too fond of anyone else.

The narrator was good.

I am quite simply deafened

I love the characters and the story and really appreciate having a woman-from-Georgia author of this quality, but I am very, very unhappy with the editing and/or narration of this series, especially the volume volatility.

I've read the first 4 books in the Will Trent series now but find I can only listen to any of these narrators on my HIGH END smart phone with my thumb over the speaker to smash down on the screaming then still be able to hear the normal volume levels. That negates the value of being able to listen to an audio book while washing the dishes, eh?

I've tried multiple equalizer apps to no avail and MOST of the 200+ audiobooks I've listened to do not have these extreme volume ranges.

I imagine better sound editing could solve most of this problem, but the Trent 1-4 narrators seem to speak as a blow-hard character, or a terrified woman by blowing out my ear wax and leaving me with an aching head. There are more subtle ways to distinguish characters and provide drama. Just now, I listened to a section where Faith screams, "WILL! WILL! HELP!" My head still aches 15 minutes later.

KARIN! AUDIBLE! HELP!!!!!!

Too grisly and gory for me.

What did you like best about Undone? What did you like least?

Narrator was quite good. Main characters were realistic people and not

Would you ever listen to anything by Karin Slaughter again?

Unlikely. The book description and other reviews did not allude to the sadistic, ugly narrative.

good story with some major problems

I wish Brilliance audio would listen to some of the reviews... Maybe that way they would know that there were at least three places that there proof listener bluitt and repeated 10 to 15 seconds of the story after the narrator took a breath. That's really frustrating when you're listening to what could be a good book! Other than that the story was good I just wish Karin Slaughter would maybe take a breather on making Christians the bad guys and all of her stories.

Poorly read & disturbing story

I've been enjoying Karin Slaughter's books although they are filled with casual sexism, mild homophobia, and other problematic themes. I've chalked those problems up to when they were written etc. I cannot, however, ignore the new development in Will Trent's character in this book when he RAPED HIS WIFE and then the author made it clear that it was actually Angie's fault, and she enjoyed it. I will not be reading any more of these books & I hope if Karin returns to her earlier writings, she will see her errors. Also the narrator repeated entire paragraphs a number a times throughout the book.

Ok story

Ok but not great, though I did listen to the whole thing. Medically inaccurate in several places. Plot twists sometimes contrived .

Always listening in CO

The author has taken Will’s new partner and made her so unlivable. It made the book difficult to finish. Will has good reason to be difficult, but he turns out to be very kind....and so often taken advantage of by Faith , his partner. She on the other hand is so demeaning to him, it’s embarrassing to be the same sex. I hope the author turns her around in the last book, or it’s going back immediately.
The first book, Triptych, was very good. This one dragged and many times made no sense. One more try for this author.
