Undone by Karin Slaughter

This book is the second in a series about character Sara Linton. (First book was Faithless.) I had no problem reading this book and picking up on what had happened in the first one - the author does a good job of giving you just enough info to make this book stand alone.

Sara's husband has been killed and her whole life torn apart, so she's fled to Atlanta to begin a new life. She takes a job at the Emergency Room and works very long hours so she doesn't have time to think. But all that changes when they bring in a young woman who has been tortured and brutally terrorized. She just can't help getting involved...

The cops involved in the case are Georgia Bureau of Investigations Agents Will Trent and Faith Mitchell (last seen in Factured), and they each have their own personal battles they are fighting. Will is dyslexic, Faith has just discovered she's pregnant (and unmarried).

They don't WANT Sara's help, but her knowledge is useful.

When they find a second young woman tortured so badly she kills herself, they begin to believe they may have a serial killer and the investigation increases speed.

The torture in this novel is graphic and will stay with you after you've finished the book. But there are monsters in the world. And no matter how far you run, they can find you.

If you'd like my advance reader's copy of this book, leave a comment here on my blog and email with your name and address as well as why you'd like to read it: info NOSPAM - take the NOSPAM and spaces out of the email address.

Karin Slaughter is another of my very favorite authors. I love her characters and her plots.
