Will Trent. I loved the humility and kindness.
Can't pick just one, I was hooked from the moment I started listening until it ended!
The narrator has a great voice, not theatrical but utterly mesmerizing.
Yes and do
Yes, it is has twists that are surprising
Yes and did
Complete mental immersion
There is nothing better than a good book!
Heart pounding suspense, raw, crazy, and entertaining- Karin Slaughter knows how to write a gritty psychological thriller! I am a BIG fan now.... Can't wait to hear the whole series- excellent narration, too!!!
I live in Dundee, Oregon, wine country and the most beautiful place on earth...I love detective stories and just discovered John Sandford and his Prey series. Love him! I also love Rosamond Pilcher, anything read by Joe Mantagna or Bobby Cavale. Love Audiobooks more than almost anything!
I love this book. Sometimes I couldn't listen it was so intense. Way up there with the best
I loved Will. He was strong and silent and damaged and wonderful
The final 40 minutes were crazy
In the finale.
LISTEN TO THIS!!
This was my first Karin Slaughter novel, but it will not be my last.
After reading some of the comments about now dark the storyline was and how the reader didn't deliver on the southern accents, I almost didn't listen to this one.
However this book had me so engrossed that I didn't even noticed the accent. If the book's content hadn't been dark and bleak, then the story would have fell short of being developed. The author has to show how horrible it is in prison. It was also her job to show you the deep depravity of a serial killer’s mind. That, after all is the basis of the story. Otherwise you would have has a fluff piece without depth.
TripTych has mystery, suspense, and lots of drama. If I’m totally honest, there were parts of the story that made me whence and even had me saying, “that’s disgusting”.
But in the end it was a helluva ride. And I'm glad I brought a ticket.
I really enojyed ths story, the reader, and the lenght of the book.
The plot was involved and kept me on my seat. I wasn't sure if I would like her writing style but I read a short story and thought I would chance it. I'm so glad I did!!
No I have not listened to him before but it was a good fit.
No, I did not have an extreme reaction.

The first of Will Trent (Grant County), murder mysteries. A girl is brutally murdered and a 16 year old boy is convicted. After years in prison, he is paroled and moves back to his home town. Soon another young girl turns up dead, and John, the parolee, is suspected of causing the death. Much investigation and many twists and turns follow. This book keeps you in suspense and guessing until the end. Would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good murder mystery featuring a serial killer.
This story was SO good and the narrator Michael Kramer read all of the parts so convincingly, that both he and the author Karen Slaughter are now two of my favorites. The story starts out pretty harsh and this is not a book you would want to listen to in the car with your children. But if you stick with it, I think you'll be glad you did. . . I know I was!
The southern accents weren't that great - the narrator made every southern person sound like they were 65 years old instead of 34 or whatever age they were.
I dunno, maybe. I already purchased a book because it was on sale, but I'll listen to it when I don't have anything else to listen to.
I didn't like the southern accents.
Not really -
I think this book is a waste of time.
Personally can't say if it is "better" in audio but I enjoy the depth that the narrator brings to the story. Won't have time to read if it wasn't audible, totally enjoyable.
This plot keeps twisting and turning, the author has a wonderful way of pulling the past into the present and ties it all together well.
Believe it or not, it's Angie.... he gives depth into what kind of person she is and the issues she struggles with.
The Strength to Overcome the Past...
Enjoy the Will Trent series by Slaughter, discrepancies as to the order....I still have come back for more irregardless.
