Wishing for another direction

I love the Grant County series. Undone would be a good description for me at the end of the previous book. I was hoping for a dream sequence. Anything to bring Jeffrey back. But, alas, no such luck. Undone was a great book. I enjoyed that it tied the Grant County Series in with her other series, which I have also read entirely. I just didn't want the Grant County series to take the direction that it did. I hope one day I will get over it. I trust that Karin Slaughter will make me get over it, but she hasn't yet. The writing is good, the plot twists are still there. It is a great read. I just miss Jeffrey.

In Karin Slaughter's "Undone," a badly injured woman is hit by a passing car. The woman had been tortured and didn't know what she was doing when she stepped into the vehicle's path.

Will Trent, a detective with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, goes to the accident scene and discovers a cave where at least two victims were tortured. The local police resent his intrusion in their case. They order him to leave but before he does, he discovers a second victim, another woman and this time, the victim is dead.

As I was reading this story, I was struck by the number of plot similarities between this 2009 novel and Lisa Gardner's "Hide" which was published by Bantam, January 30, 2007.

Both novels have an underground area where victims are brought in order to be tortured and killed. In "Hide" the area is called a chamber. In "Undone" it is called a cave. Both novels have the antagonist with some family connection to someone already in the story. In addition, both villain's are in need of mental care and in both novels we have a police detective who is compassionate while having a female associate who is a no nonsense woman.

I enjoyed both stories and both contain a surprise toward the conclusion of the novel but the commonalities in plot were disturbing.

    Overdone

    A misuse of writers talent. Her ability to create interesting characters and plot is overwhelmed by the sadism and gore that permeates the book. I could not get through it even though i liked her other work.
