FAITHLESS by KARIN SLAUGHTER

Number five in the Grant County series by Karin Slaughter. This one has another thrilling story line. A girl buried alive in the woods, a religious cult, weird wacky characters, more secrets revealed by the main characters, a side story about battered women, and more problems for Lena.   And even more important, less of the Jeffrey/Sara soap opera. I really like this series for the wonderful story lines that the author includes. They have twists and turns, some endearing characters, some that you love to hate, the villains are sufficiently horrible.   I also like the way that the author uses the titles to reflect both the thriller story line, and the continuing story line of the main characters.  BUT PLEASE: Sara and Jeffrey need to grow up. I could really do with out that aspect of the stories. 3.5 stars.
