However the only thing I’m going to focus on about UNDONE is that Karin brought two of my favorite characters she’s created and brought them together into one series. When I began reading UNDONE and seeing a POV through Sara Linton, I had to make sure I wasn’t reading a Grant County. I even took the the time to stop reading, go to Karin’s website to see the list of books in the Grant County series to make sure I hadn’t miss one. Nope. Then I read the book’s synopsis…and no I didn’t read it before I brought the book, Karin is one of those authors I just buy knowing I’ll get great story. I actually squealed after reading the synopsis. Sara and Will in one book! And a possible love interest between the two! I have to bow to Karin’s genius for doing that.
I could go on and on about Karin Slaughter’s ability to craft a suspenseful story showing the darker nature of man. I could praise her on how she creates characters you can love, despise, or fear. I could tell you that woman knows how to write scenes that make you squirm and then want to make sure you check all the locks on your doors and windows before you go to bed.
