    "Excellently read"

    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.

    "Storyline kept moving along nicely"

    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.

    "Everything you've ever looked for in a thriller!"

    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!

    "Hooked on Audio Slaughter!"

    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.

    "One surprise after another."

    Engaging story line. Fully developed characters. Narration was fabulous - each character was easily recognized.

    Good reading keeps you wondering how the murders and kidnappings are related. Kept me turning the pages so to speak.

    Story
    "how slow can you go?"
    What did you like best about Fractured? What did you like least?

    I really want to go with more of a two and a half stars, but that's not an option and I like to err on the side of kindness, so...
    I do like the characters and the mystery itself is good. But the book moves soooooooo slowly. I kept losing focus because it just got boring.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Cold Comfort by Quentin Bates. I have given up on the Will Trent series, at least for now.


    What three words best describe Phil Gigante’s voice?

    He's good enough.


    Did Fractured inspire you to do anything?

    Yeah. Look for a new book by a different author.

    "A complete view of dis functionalism"

    The story was good to exceptional. it included all shades of dis functional and the variation is amazing. The story line runs through lives of rich and poor, young and old, coping and not coping.
    I liked the performance. It was exciting and full. The main theme throughout the story is what happens to the survivors...the after of a survivor, the coping of a survivor. I would definitely recommend it.
