These books are gripping. The writer is phenomenal. I'm definitely going on to the next one. My only gripe is the performer changed from book one to book two. It's like a great movie making a sequel having different actors for the same characters. That being said, the second performer does a good job. He loses the southern accent though which lost some of the authentic feeling
It was funny, exciting, and suspenseful. I could not stop listening. Trent is a very interesting and unique character that I bounded to instantly. Highly recommend.
This has to be the type of material you like to read or it might be a little to much for certain people. But if you choose to read this type of book than you know what to expect. Overall well written. Also like the Will Trent character.
Karin Slaughter is one of my favorite authors, but this wasn't my favorite. It was difficult to connect with the characters. I was engaged, but the story fell flat in comparison to her later work.
I Love to listen to books more often than reading. Audible gets me through the day and night more especially when I'm working !
Great 2nd series of Will Trent I'm looking forward to the others however please don't use this narrator. He's probably great on other readings it took awhile to get use to the voices he used. On the first book, Triptych that narrator was very good! I noticed that the other books in this series use different narrators so I hope they are good. But the story line was very good and detailed. I secretly would like Will to dump Angie and get with Faith :)
I am the mother of three grown children. I own a horse ranch and enjoy listening to Mystery/Suspense novels and Personal Development books.
I love suspense and twists and turns and this one had it all. can't wait to read the next book.
The story line got a little out of hand. There were a few to many coincidences for me. But the book was still worth my time and I do like the characters for the most part. The performance of this book was off the charts, I love the way it was read.
Narration was very good but there would be nothing less than at least very good coming from experienced narrator Phil Gigante.
The story was good and questions kept coming once you thought it was wrapping up. But having worked in the investigator field I can't help but think of things I would have liked them to try or even how they questioned their suspects. I found myself wanting to yell out to the MC ask them this or say that... LOL
I am not one who reads crime fiction all too often so perhaps to one who has many more crime novels under their belt they may have found things not to like with this story I didn't that being said I will go on to the next in this newly paired investigative team of Will Trent and Faith Mitchell of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
I'm writing this review about the 1st book in the "Will Trent" series(Triptych) as well as Fractured. Yes, it is worth that last credit as well as the first credit, any credit in between & the purchase price if you're out of credits too! I HATE reading 2 or 3 star reviews & finding out the only reason was bcuz "it was too graphic" or "I couldn't stand all that bad language"(said in a whiny voice) you know u were choosing to read a crime novel right? This is thee best series/thriller novel I've ever read and I've been reading authors like James Patterson, Nick Cutter, Peter James, Thomas Harris etc. so that's saying a lot. Supremely crafted character development that simultaneously moves the story along and never gets boring ever! I always always figure out "who dunnit" way before authors probably intend for a reader to and Karin Slaughter is amazing at twisting the twist 2 or 3 times and does it so realistically you absolutely never feel cheated and look back knowing there's no way that could have been figured out bcuz it's so ridiculous, you know what I mean. So without talking about the stories in any way(bcuz its that good I'm not gonna be the 1 who ruins any of it for u!) I'm just going to profusely recommend you read Triptych first then Fractured and so on, this is everything I've been hunting for in a thriller/mystery/true crime/homicide investigator fiction, bad assery!
No doubt about it, Karin Slaughter knows cops! Her characters are fully developed and flawed in all the best ways, just as good cops should be. Phil Gigante does an admirable job of acting all the parts and fleshing out the characters. This is only my second Karin Slaughter book, the first being "Criminal," so I'm not reading in any particular order, but I intend to get around to enjoying every one I can find in audio, and the rest I will just read.
