This book can , however, be read as a single, standalone thriller. Karin Slaughter has a website and a newsletter, both of which show her to be a funny, fun-loving, nice young lady. So whither these gory scenes of torture and sadism that inhabit her books? This latest book is part of a series with familiar characters we have come to love in spite of their many flaws.

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 weirdly, called Skin Privilege in the UK and other terr First, people should know that in the UK and elsewhere, this book is titled Genesis, which was the original title I chose. She's in a new city, she's completely changed her life, she's still recovering from the horrible events in Beyond Reach weirdly, called Skin Privilege in the UK and other territories I felt very keenly that I needed for readers to mourn alongside Sara, but I couldn't let it be so raw that she couldn't actually function, so I set the story a few years after Beyond Reach.
So, we hear about what she went though, but we also see that there is a light peeking over the horizon. This is also the first book where Sara meets Will Trent, which is something I had planned way back when I wrote Triptych. I see that book as well as Fractured the only Will books without Sara as Will's preparation for meeting Sara.
He's starting to shake off Angie, he gets partnered with Faith Mitchell whom I consider a grumpy Watson to Will's Holmes in that she makes him explain the things that are running around in his head and pulls him out of his shell , his relationship with Amanda is becoming more open And readers, too!
I also write about a widow on Cop Town June which I didn't realize until I had finished the book. What's this with me and widows? I guess I find it interesting, because how do you go on when you lose the love of your life? It doesn't seem possible, but people have to do it every day.

So, so angry because I've been enjoying this series so far, including the beginning of this one, I've made excuses for the rampant sexism pouring through every page, and now I'm feeling so sick, I want to unread this book. The thing is, there's a tiny limit between picturing realistic, flawed characters and making me loathe every one of them. God, I had hopes for Will! However, that was before I knew that he was a fucking rapist. Yes, you heard me. You won't change my mind with the "Angie is a manipulative bitch" narrative, because you know what?
Of course she is, I hate the woman, but that's very dangerous to draw lines when it comes to rape. There's NO woman on earth who deserves to be raped. I don't CARE if the book is telling us that oh, actually, she enjoyed it.
I will NOT feel sorry for Will. Was she on the verge of forcing his hand? Would she have been an awful human being if she had managed to do it? But why would Will be let off the hook? There's no such thing as "eyes for an eye, and teeth for a tooth" as far as I'm concerned, because then why would I care for him?? Why would I root for him? He's accountable for his actions all the same, and as much as I liked the guy, now he's like a itch I want to scratch.
Things go like this : she's trying to force his hand and manipulate him, he understandably!! She doesn't. He then starts pushing her. She fights back. She pushes him on the floor. He holds on and pulls her down with him. He uses his force to keep her under him. And then : "He grabbed both her hands in one of his, squeezing them together so she couldn't fight him. Without even thinking, he reached down and ripped away her underwear.
Her nails dug into the back of his hand as he slid his fingers inside her. He unzipped his pants and pushed himself inside her. She tried to tighten against him, but he pushed harder, forcing her to open up. I don't care. The fact that she's wet, that she has pleasure, doesn't change a thing, because we really don't need more scenes like these in medias, scenes in which no means yes.
What the hell. Do I really have to explain why?

Undone (Slaughter novel)
Look Inside. Then, in one instant, Sara is thrust into a frantic police investigation, coming face-to-face with a tall driven detective and his quiet female partner…. Then he finds another victim. Another woman—a smart, upscale, independent young mother—has been snatched. In her latest suspense masterpiece, Karin Slaughter weaves together the moving, powerful human stories of characters as real as they are complex and unforgettable. At the same time she has crafted a work of dazzling storytelling and spine-tingling mystery—as three people, each with their own wounds and their own secrets, are all that stands between a madman and his next crime.
