The victim was buried alive in the Georgia woodsâ€“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.

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.
