About the Book


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 bestselling
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 buried beneath the earth. 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
--- 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.

In her latest suspense masterpiece, Karin Slaughter weaves
together the moving, powerful human stories of characters as real
as they are complex and unforgettable. At the same time she has
crafted a work of dazzling storytelling and spine-tingling mystery
--- as three people, each with their own wounds and their own
secrets, are all that stands between a madman and his next
