Good detective books but some of the violence is hard to read. I hope all this is based on a sick imagination ( )

It was quite good, but as it turns out to be several books along in a series I feel no urge to read the earlier ones... or any others to be honest. ( )

Hice algo que no debe hacerse jamas con una serie y empecé a leer desde el tercer libro . Tenía que continuar la historia de Sara Linton y me sentí demasiado impaciente y dolida , sino traumatizada por el final de su historia en Gran County y del odiado pero amado Jeffrey Tolliver ... Todavía no meentra en la cabeza que lo hayan matado asi como así!!

Me costo adaptarme a los nuevos personajes y a la nueva Sara-sin-Jeffrey pero una vez que lo conseguí (a casi mas de la mitad del libro) , me enganche con el clima de suspenso y la genialidad absoluta de Will Trent . Claramente , lo mejor que tiene es que es completamente opuesto a Jeffrey y eso es una muestra de la excelencia que posee Slaughter para crear personajes con personalidades propias (a pesar de que algunas de sus femeninas dejan mucho que desear) y distinguibles entre si . Todos los puntos de vista tienen sus características especificas y uno nunca se confunde sobre quien esta hablando .

El 3.5 que le doy esta directamente relacionado con mi propia nostalgia hacia los personajes de Gran County . De haber empezado directamente con Trent y Faith (y que maravillosa ella también , por cierto!) , probablemente mi puntuación seria mayor . ( )

As much as I cursed Karin Slaughter for her ending of "Beyond Reach", I really enjoyed this book. She brings together her characters from "Triptych" and "Fractured" with the crazy Grant County folk and it was quite enjoyable. Considering how many "murder mysteries" are now on TV weekly, there really is no original story anymore so the other stuff has to be pretty good to keep my interest. Slaughter is not in the league of an Elizabeth George but entertaining none-the-less. ( )

Book description
From Amazon.com Hardcover description:

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.
