    TW - the so-called "hero" is a rapist, and everyone hates women because why the fuck notAlright. It's way too late for me to write a 10,000+ review, but I'm so fucking disgusted that I have to talk about it or I'll never sleep. Let's go to the point, okay? So. Genesis. Or Undone, whatever it's named. I'm so angry I can't see straight. So, so angry because I've been enjoying this series so far, including the beginning of this one, I've made excuse...

    I told myself I was going to write this review before starting Broken so here I am and I'm going to try and make it quick.Undone is my favorite so far of the Will Trent Series and I really should be taking the time to write a full review with perfect pictures but the next book is waiting on my Kindle! :)For me this was the most gruesome of the three books. As with the others the writing was gripping and captivating. It created such vivid thoughts...

    First, people should know that in the UK and elsewhere, this book is titled Genesis, which was the original title I chose. (In the US, there was another book called Genesis--sci-fi--that was publishing around mine and they didn't want confusion). I chose the title Genesis because this was really a restart for Sara Linton. She's in a new city, she's completely changed her life, she's still recovering from the horrible events in Beyond Reach (weird...

    4.5 "I fucking hate Angie" stars!This series is a spin off from the Grant County series... I had started this series when I realised that one of the character who was going to show up in this series already featured in the other series... Now I am a bit of a stickler for reading in order, so I had to stop this series and go back to the other. Confused yet??Will and Faith work for the GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation). These two. Lord above, t...

    Being my first Karin Slaughter book, Genesis has surely tempted me to read thriller and mystery again.The detailed analysis of each character, going after it until everything has been written down of those person in the book, was gripping.Even though I was not able to trust each character at the time that made reading more exciting and entertaining, I felt finishing it really fast. Because the murders were getting higher in rate.I love those book...

    4.5 STARSWell, I'm definitely whole-heartedly invested in this series now. And Will Trent has permanently gotten under my skin and into my heart. What can I say... Will, Will, Will. He is finally starting to break... to let some light into the cracks of that concrete wall he's erected around his heart. I've said it before and I'll say it again. it is impossible not to love this man. This book has finally started giving me a little insight into th...
  • Rick
    I just discovered Karin Slaughter, and as most of you know, there's nothing as good as finding a "new" (to you) author who has many books already published. No "waiting for the next one to come out" anxiety!Before I had finished "Fractured" I KNEW I had to have "Undone"...and I wasn't disappointed. Slaughter came through for me again, with excellent suspense and a great cast of characters brought to life flawlessly and with depth.Having never rea...
  • Debra
    Will Trent and Sara Linton in the same book!!!!!!!! I can't read this fast enough. I loved the Grant County series. I could not read those books fast enough and I was so sad when that series ended with a BANG. But now I'm hooked with Will Trent and What! What! What! Sara Linton is in this book? Yes, Yes, and Yes!A young woman enters the Trauma center where Sara now works. After her husbands death, Sara has left Grant County and now works at a hos...
  • ♥Rachel♥
    Loving this series more with each book. I love Will, and I'm happy he's gaining some confidence and backbone. I think the pairing with Faith was an excellent decision by Amanda, even though Faith was really moody in this installment. You can't really blame her, though. I strongly suspected the identity of the killer early on, but I didn't know for sure until very late. Still, there were surprises, and the story was thoroughly addictive! Parts wer...
  • Brenda
    So glad to see the appearance of (Dr.) Sarah Linton in this book. Also glad I read the 'Grant County' series first. Ready to go on the next book in the 'Will Trent' series. Rating this one 4.5 rounded up.
  • Julie
    Undone by Karin Slaughter is a 2009 Delacorte Press publication.This third book in the Will Trent series creates a link with the Grant County series by introducing Sara Linton to the series. Sara is from Grant County, but has relocated to Atlanta following the death of her husband. She meets Faith and Will at the hospital when Faith has a fainting spell, but soon finds herself embroiled in the case Will and Faith are working on. Several women who...
  • Sandy *The world could end while I was reading and I would never notice*
    Genesis is officially my favourite of Karin Slaughter's Will Trent series. I think I have read it previously when it was titled Undone.One of those lovely books where you find yourself holding your breath, without realising you are doing it until you suddenly let it out!I strongly recommend this series which is a mix of crime/thriller/romance.
  • Mary Beth
    This author really knows how to write. I think every book so far in this series I've given 5 stars to it. It is full of suspense! Wow! Wow! Wow! I could not put this book down in the last 120 pages. It really got my adrenaline going. It flows so well. I really loved what I read. I just love Will Trent. If you really want to read a good thriller and a good series, this one is it! It will blow you away. I do have to say this series is definitely no...
  • Oana
    Will Trent is a fantastic series, I give you that, and I'm appalled that I was so late to find out about Karin Slaughter's brilliant writing. Undone (known also as Genesis) is the third installment in the series, and my favourite one yet.They can all be read as standalones, but, for the love of God, just don't do that. Read them in order. The brilliancy of this series doesn't consist in the mystery/crime solving police procedurals - which are rat...
  • Andrea
    Another brilliant book from Karin slaughter,I think you should read the books in order to get to know the characters as i was glad to see Sara Linton back in the books she's such a strong character.karins crimes books are really gritty.and bringing up diabetes showing how serious the condition is,I'm going to read the next book in the will Trent series broken.and i bet it's just as good.
  • ✨Susan✨
    Another good addition in the Will Trent series and by far the most gruesome in the series so far. Will and Faith are after a killer who kidnaps two victims at a time and keeps them under the ground in a hand made cave. The women endure horrible tortures, definitely not for the faint of heart. Faith has some health complications which lead her to Sarah, an ER doctor who is a character that comes from Karin Slaughters other series, Grant County. Sa...
  • Beverly
    Karen Slaughter doesn't make violence pretty; these are not cozy mysteries to wile away the hours. I am not preaching against those types of mysteries, because I like them too. She does public service by not dressing up sexual psychopaths. These men are sick and what they do to women is repugnant and nightmare-enducing, that said she also knows people and that's what brings me back to her novels again and again. The violence is tough to read, but...
  • Piper
    Another great Will Trent installment from Karin Slaughter, Undone certainly had me shuddering at times from the hideously gruesome things that were done to the female victims. These women already had deep seated issues but to be violated as they were was inconceivable. The perp was undeniably a sick SOB. What was almost even sicker was who knew what he was doing and kept silent about it. Yeah. What I love about this series, first and foremost, is...
  • Jonetta
    It's been over three years since Sara Linton left Grant County following her personal tragedy and she's now working in Atlanta, back at Grady Hospital. Though she's moving forward with her life, it's still a slow pace. When she attends a woman who shows up in the ER, obviously brutalized, Sara is hurtled into an investigation that leads to more horror and Will Trent (he's not the horror!). This marks the intersection of the Grant County series an...

    If I hadn’t read Karin Slaughter previously, I might have been a bit put off just a few pages into the prologue of Undone. Having read quite a few of Slaughter’s previous thrillers, I was expecting something dramatic by, oh, the second paragraph. So I was almost lulled into complacency when it hit me – or rather, when Henry Coldfield and his wife Judith hit a woman as they drove at dusk one evening. Thus began the heart-pounding, stomach-ch...
  • Melissa
    Well done, Karin Slaughter! I liked this a lot more than Fractured. Will is such an interesting character. I liked that there was a little more development of his character. I also like seeing the dynamic between Will, Faith and Amanda. The only reason I knocked a star off the rating is because I felt like the "bad guy"/resolution was rushed in to the last 50 pages of the story. That's probably the way it really works, but it would have been nice...
  • Janie Johnson
    This is book #3 to the Will Trent series and it is a mystery/thriller. I have to say I did enjoy the book, and the characters. It flows well with plenty of action and excitement.In this installment Will and Faith have to find and stop a serial killer who brutally manipulates his victims through starvation, torture and rape, all while dealing with their own personal issues. Who will be next?I really enjoyed the mystery to this installment. I think...

  • Nat
    Another perfect dark/twisted/gross cannot-put-down-until-it's-over Karin Slaughter novel. This series honestly just keeps getting better and better, everyone in the world who enjoys a good crime novel needs to read these books.

    Dopala mi se religijska simbolika i malo više stranica posvećenih privatnim životima Willa Trenta, Sare Linton i Faith Mitchell :)
  • Paulo Pires
    4.8« “Génesis” é o terceiro livro da série # Will Trent e marca um facto interessante na obra de Karin Slaughter, é o ponto de encontro entre duas das séries de enorme sucesso da autora: “Will Trent” e “Grant County”, sendo o terceiro e o sétimo livro das duas séries, respectivamente. Da série “Grant Conty” foram publicados apenas dois livros em Portugal pela já extinta Editora Gótica, e que, posso acrescentar, tenho o ...

    This is truly a new beginning - a new beginning of my old obsession.In December of 2014 I first discover the brilliance of Karin Slaughter. Reading Triptych and Fractured made me a true fan of Slaughter's work.She is brilliant, her vivid portraits and dramatic, action packed criminal investigations leaves you sole shocked and craving more with every book.But me and my borderline OCD needed to read things in order and on noticing that a character ...
  • Victoria Hirsche
    I really enjoyed the first two Will Trent books and this one was a pain to get through for me. Besides the general boring plot, here are my main two problems with the book. First, and this is the more minor one, it seems like every one of her books ends up with one of the main characters going to investigate a major suspect alone. That plot line was ridiculous the first time it happened and it just keeps happening. Now the big one, is that the ma...
