Not only was this an awesome book, but it only cost $1!
I’m so sad that I only have 1 book left in the Grant County series. However, it is nice to know that the characters (Sara, Jeffrey and Lena) in the Grant County will appearance in the Will Trent series (Slaughter’s other series).
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 young woman. For them, a harrowing journey begins, one that will test their own turbulent relationship and draw dozens of life into the case.
For as Jeffrey and Sara move further down a trail of shocking surprises and hidden passions, neither is prepared for the most stunning discovery of all: the identity of a killer who is more evil and dangerous than anyone could have guessed.
There are lots of murders in this small town in Georgia. In this novel, a young woman is discovered murdered in the woods and Sara (medical examiner and local pediatrician) and Jeffrey (police chief) have to start from ground zero, including finding out who the woman is.
Once they have identified the woman, the case is just gets started. The family always get looked at first and this family is a doozie. From their lifestyle to their relationships with one another, there are a lot of family secrets! I really enjoyed the mystery and there is a very dramatic showdown at the end of the novel!
Faithless is entertaining from the beginning to the end. I liked how Lena (one of the town’s detectives) seems to be moving forward with her life, instead of backwards like in the previous novels. I really like the relationship between her and Nan.
I also really love Sara and Jeffrey and their relationship. They work so well together and I hope that they are able to put their past behind them and move forward. Similar to Lena, there are positive steps happening!
4 calculators out of a potential 5. Love this series and all the characters! Doesn’t get the full 5 because I enjoyed the last novel (Indelible) a bit more.

I still need to read this series, only read the first and then I switched to the Will Trent one!
