Karin Slaughter is known for her intricately plotted mysteries, which usually contain graphic depictions of violent crimes, most often against women. The doctor in this case is Sara Linton, who in previous books has seen her police chief husband, the man she believes to be her one true love, murdered before her eyes. Trying to put the past behind her, she has moved to Atlanta where she is now head of emergency medicine at Grant County Medical Hospital. Sara is on duty when the first victim is brought to the emergency room after being hit by a car while escaping her captor. Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents Will Trent and Faith Mitchell, last seen in Fractured , are also first-hand witnesses to the arrival of the tortured and traumatized victim.

Undone (Slaughter novel)
The characters are built up well enough within this book to make it unnecessary to read other books from the series first. One evening, a naked woman is hit by a car on a country road. Sara Linton is the attending doctor at the hospital and medical investigation reveals that the injured woman, Anna, has been starved and grotesquely tortured for weeks before the accident. Will disregards jurisdictional niceties and goes to the accident site to investigate.
