Title:            Faithless

Author: Karin Slaughter

Rating:  6/10

Great for: scaring you (but not as much as it should)

This is the fifth book in Karin Slaughter’s Grant County series, and having read them all in order over the last year or so, it’s my least favourite.

It follows the same formula as the previous books, but I found that the descriptions of the rather horrific crime (girl buried alive in woods) almost didn’t seem to take the terror of this situation seriously enough.  I just didn’t ‘feel’ it.

And I guessed ‘whodunnit’ pretty early on, which didn’t help, either.

 I still enjoyed it: picking up one of this series is like visiting old friends – it’s nice to see what’s happening to the characters you’ve come to know over the previous books, and catch up with where they are now.

In summary, good – but not her best.
