Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Without doubt an accomplished, compelling and complex tale, with page-turning power aplenty" (Daily Express)

"Slaughter's plotting is relentless, piling on surprises and twists ... A good read that should come with a psychological health warning" (Guardian)

"Criminally spectacular" (OK!)

"It's beautifully paced, appropriately grisly, and terrifyingly plausible. Who says there's anything peaceful and quiet about small-town America" (Time Out)

"Brilliantly chilling" (heat)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The third Will Trent novel, from the No. 1 Bestseller.

Three and a half years ago former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton moved to Atlanta hoping to leave her tragic past behind her. Now working as a doctor in Atlanta's Grady Hospital she is starting to piece her life together. But when a severely wounded young woman is brought in to the emergency room, she finds herself drawn back into a world of violence and terror. The woman has been hit by a car but, naked and brutalised, it's clear that she has been the prey of a twisted mind.

When Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Investigation Team returns to the scene of the accident, he stumbles on a torture chamber buried deep beneath the earth. And this hidden house of horror reveals a ghastly truth - Sara's patient is just the first victim of a sick, sadistic killer. Wrestling the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner Faith Mitchell find themselves at the centre of a grisly murder hunt. And Sara, Will and Faith - each with their own wounds and their own secrets - are all that stand between a madman and his next crime...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 le retour réussi de Sara Linton 9 juillet 2010
Par Pascale TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Quel plaisir de retrouver l'héroïne de la série Grant County après la fin terrible et audacieuse de sa précédente aventure... Cette fois, Karin Slaughter a la bonne idée d'orchestrer la rencontre entre l'attachante Sara et Will Trent, qui apparaissait dans "Fractured", et ce sans tomber dans le piège de la romance à l'eau de rose.

Les fans de Karin Slaughter retrouveront avec plaisir les ingrédients qui ont fait son succès: une intrigue qui comme d'habitude est extrêmement bien ficelée, accrochant le lecteur dès les premières pages -une jeune femme grièvement blessée est heurtée par une voiture alors qu'elle vient d'échapper à son tortionnaire, marquant ainsi le début de découvertes terrifiantes-, beaucoup de réalisme dans les descriptions des sévices subis, des personnages complexes et empathiques que l'on aime voir évoluer au fil des aventures et pour lesquels on se surprend également à ressentir une réelle empathie. Pas ou peu de stéréotypes, des héros complexes et fragiles (le chagrin de Sara est encore perceptible tout au fil des pages, la souffrance de Will est également extrêmement bien rendue, et même les personnages secondaires ont beaucoup de consistance), une fin qui donne envie de se précipiter sur le suivant...

Pour ceux qui ne connaîtraient pas encore l'auteur, à découvrir absolument si vous aimez les bons thrillers avec un petit quelque chose en plus...

Un des meilleurs livres de l'auteur Karin Slaughter. Seul bémol pour tous ses livres, l'enquete est trop longue.
Mais le livre se lit bien, les personnages sont attachants.
A lire !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sara Linton is back! 30 juillet 2009
Par iGertrude - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
The last novel Sara was in Beyond Reach should have been called Shattered for what it did to the readers-- very few novels have that shocking of an ending. We now know what the writer is capable of -- it was merciful of her not to bring Sara back in the last book. I only opened her last book Fractured reluctantly. A year was not enough to get over it. Apparently Karin Slaughter had not gotten over it yet either, because she sauntered off to a different area of Georgia to reprise the deeply flawed characters of Will Trent and Faith Mitchell from Triptych.

This book, Undone, brings all of these characters together in Atlanta.

Will and Faith are locked in a stormy partnership, part-friendship, part-bickering sibling style. They come to police work from wildly divergent backgrounds, Will after being raised in the orphanage in Georgia, Faith after struggling most of her life after having given birth to a child at the age of 15. Will struggles with dyslexia that makes it virtually impossible for him to read without the aids he has built into his life. Faith works on coming to terms with two heath issues that present themselves immediately in this book: diabetes and pregnancy, which bring her right into Sara's new world, the ER in Grady Hospital in Atlanta. Sara left Grant County when she discovered that she could no longer survive in the places where Jeffrey had ever been.

Karin Slaughter is a master of characterization. This is a description of Will and Faith's boss, Amanda Wagner: "She favored monochromatic power suits with skirts that hit below her knee and stockings that showed off the definition of what Will had to admit were remarkably good calves for a woman he often thought of as the Antichrist."

This book is a thriller to its very core. Karin Slaughter is a master of this genre and brings to her books a gritty realism that is brilliant and earth-shattering.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing, Recommended 20 juillet 2009
Par Rebecca Calderhead - Publié sur Amazon.com

I am not the type to typically write reviews, but this book was so amazing that I decided I had to write something.

I started this book off after reading a new series of books that had nothing to do with mysteries or crime solving, I was taking a break from this type of book for awhile after finding myself growing tired of them. I decided to read this book after a long wait, because I really was curious to what would happen to Sara.

I was worried I couldn't get into the book, because of growing tired of this genre, but I found myself unable to put the book down after I purchased the book and finished it within days of buying it.

I have read all the Grant County and Will Trent books and I have been looking for to this one for a long time after the big surprise at the end of the last Grant County book.

When I first read she was combining the two series, I have to say I was surprised and not exactly excited with the decision. I didn't think the outcome would be lived up to either series on it's own, but I was actually surprised how it turned out and I found myself enjoying the book more than some of the others in the earlier Grant County series.

I thought Karin Slaughter did a great job of mixing the characters together in a believable fashion and I really felt connected to each one of them.

I do agree that Sara didn't get as many pages in the book as I would have liked her to have, but I don't think that made or broke the book. I keep thinking over and over how she could have gotten more pages and with what happened to her at the end of the last book, I really don't see a way she could have.

I feel Will and Faith brought enlightenment to Sara and hopefully that enlightenment will help her get back to her old life and make her a bigger part of the next book.

As for this book though, I thought Karin Slaughter did a good job of mixing the characters together, it's not always about who gets the biggest part in the book but the ones you found yourself loving and wanting to read more about and I found myself connected the most to Sara.

The mystery or crime in the book that needed to be solved was graphic, but not to graphic and had your heart aching for the victims. I don't want to put any spoilers here, but no matter how the victims acted, you still found yourself mourning for them.

As always the bad guy in the book was someone I didn't expect, yet right there in front of your eyes from the beginning.

I would definitely recommend this book if you have read any of the other books, I have to say I was very surprised by the ending once again like I was with the last book in the Grant County series.

I found myself almost unable to finish the book with the big twist at the end. I will admit I almost cried and any book that brings out such emotion in someone deserves 5 stars.

I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A mixed blessing ... 3  stars 27 juillet 2009
Par Brian Baker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Like many other readers, I was very surprised by the ending of Slaughter's Grant County novel a couple of books back in which a series lead character - Jeffrey Tolliver - was killed, leaving his counterpart Sara Linton a grieving widow.

Well, Sara's back in this novel, along with Slaughter's other parallel series duo from the GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation) Will Trent and Faith Mitchell.

I have very mixed feelings about this book, to be honest. I think Slaughter's a tremendously talented writer; I also think it was a very gutsy move in the earlier book to kill off Jeffrey. She probably knew this wouldn't sit well with many of her fans, and judging by that book's review on this site, she was right. But she did it anyway.

I think that's also a very artistic choice, because now we'll never know if a lead character's safe in any book she writes going forward, and that certainly adds dramatic tension to the story. A lead character can actually die... think about that! You KNOW when you read a book featuring Mitch Rapp, Jack Reacher, Lucas Davenport, Harry Bosch, or any of the others that no matter HOW bad the situation is in which they find themselves, they're ultimately going to emerge from the other end alive.

You can't say that any longer about a Slaughter character, can you?

Also on the upside, the plot of this book was very clever and cunningly executed; I was surprised at the denouement. The clues were there, but even though I'm a devotee of this genre, I hadn't figured it out.

However, I do have some nits to pick.

First of all, to set the background, Slaughter writes very strong female characters. Some are appealing, some not. That's fine; no problem. In the Tolliver/Linton series, Sara's appealing, Lena's a pain in the tukus (though I happen to like her). In the GBI series, Faith, Angie and GBI honcho Amanda are all also tough as nails. Actually, I think this gives one some insight into Slaughter's own personality, interestingly enough. Faith and Amanda are both very appealing in their own ways, while Angie's a demon in a dress.

In the Tolliver/Linton series, Jeffrey kept Lena on a strong and short leash, which made for a very interesting dynamic. But in the GBI series, Will Trent is completely p-whipped by Angie. Now, that works for a while, but here's where the problem arises for me.

Trent is already a case of "damaged goods", being dyslexic and emotionally stunted due to his background as an orphanage veteran. To be honest, I have a hard time believing he's as disabled as he is and yet still managed to go through training to become a peace officer - with firearms privileges at that - or even have passed a driving license test. If you can't read, how do you pass the written test for a license?

But even putting that aside, we've now seen him in three books, and his obsession with Evil Angie is starting to become tiresome, to be honest... particularly as it was used in a pretty manipulative and unbelievable fashion to delay the revelation of a vital clue in this story. She's a cop, and would endanger a potential victim just to play mind games with him? And even after that, he wouldn't boot her butt out the door for good?

PUH-LEEZE!

This is the same problem I have with the "Beauty Killer" trilogy by Chelsea Cain. Enough with the total wimpdom of the character, with no progress over a series of books covering an appreciable time frame. In order to stay interesting - and believable - characters have to change over time just like real people do. None of us are frozen in amber.

I, for one, am totally done with Trent's being mesmerized by Angie. Time for him to develop as a character, move forward in some way, either admitting his total vulnerability to her and just giving up, or tossing her completely out of his life.

But something has to change. His unbelievable dyslexia coupled with his whippedness just makes him too static and boring a character to continue unchanged.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Very disappointed at last few chapters 30 juillet 2009
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I was glued to the first 3/4 of the book, then it all just fell apart. It was like Karin had some great ideas, then just ran out of steam and didn't know how to finish it!

The story didn't flow or make sense, & it was like another author decided to write the last few chapters. It stated the killer was a religious fanatic, but never tied up his beliefs. The anorexia? What was the point of that? It was put in like that was why he picked his victims- but then all of a sudden it was really irrelevant that they were anorexic. Same way the website was supposed to be a clue, but then it became redundant too. The FBI could never get the website password?? Who cares? -Well, no one other than the readers who kept hearing about a website that didn't even really mean much.

As for Sara & that stupid letter? Why bring it up the whole way through the book, then never tell us what it said? If you wanted the reader to be filled with suspense & buy the next book- bring the letter up during the last few chapters, rather than bore everyone about it for 2-3 hours of reading.

Man, I was really disappointed. All her books so far have been fantastic, but this one was a let down at the end. Am I going to buy another one of her books? Yes, but if the ending collapses like this one- then never again.

Did anyone else feel let down ?? Was Karin sick the last few days and ask someone else to finish it?
