Publisher's Summary

From Atlanta's wealthiest suburbs to its stark inner-city housing projects, a killer has crossed the boundaries of wealth and race. And the people who are chasing him must cross those boundaries, too. Among them is Michael Ormewood, a veteran detective whose marriage is hanging by a thread and whose arrogance and explosive temper are threatening his career. And Angie Polaski, a beautiful vice cop who was once Michael's lover before she became his enemy. But unbeknownst to both of them, another player has entered the game: a loser ex-con who has stumbled upon the killer's trail in the most coincidental of ways and who may be the key to breaking the case wide open.

In this gritty, gripping firecracker of a novel, the author of the best-selling Grant County, Georgia, series breaks thrilling new ground, weaving together the threads of a complex, multilayered story with the skill of a master craftsman. Packed with body-bending switchbacks, searing psychological suspense and human emotions, Triptych ratchets up the tension one revelation at a time as it races to a shattering and unforgettable climax.

    "Great story"

    I have enjoyed all the Trent series. The only downside was the narration. I just couldn't get into his voice.

    Story
    "Disturbing, but very interesting"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Triptych to be better than the print version?

    I am not sure. I think both would be great.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Triptych?

    In the beginning when we discover what type of person the Georgia cop is. Unexpected.


    What does Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have to admit that I did not like his voice at first, but he drew me in. At least it seemed as if he did. It could have just been the great storytelling.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Woke up early "exercise" to listen to it. :)

    Story
    "If you crave graphic violence and torture..."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Closet Psychopaths, or openly Psychopathics


    Would you ever listen to anything by Karin Slaughter again?

    Probably not. It's possible to write about intimacy without resorting to pornography.
    It is also possible to write about a murder mystery without describing the carnage in excessive gory detail.


    What about Michael Kramer’s performance did you like?

    It was very well done. He was able to change his tone of voice between characters with apparent ease.


    What character would you cut from Triptych?

    I'm OK with the characters, I'd just tone down the descriptions of people getting their tongues bitten off while being raped and murdered. It's just too much. (NOTE: Not a spoiler. This happens early in the book.)


    Any additional comments?

    I was a police officer for 39 years and I never came across the level of horror written into this book. Blood, murder, evidence of violence doesn't really bother me, but this book is overloaded with it, and it just doesn't work for me. For example, read in the last chapter the description of injuries to one of the characters. Then, at the very end, she simply states, "so and so" was OK. Trust me, "so and so" died of her injuries.

    "can't believe a woman can write so well..."

    ...from a man's perspective, that is. it's as if she's in his mind and in his skin. wow. second book of Karin Slaughter's I've listened to... You can't go wrong. She weaves a gripping, mean little tale and wraps it up in a nice, neat bow.

    "Twisted "

    I love Karin Slaughter! Karin is such a talented writer and story teller. The characters were well developed and interesting, I found myself wanting to know what happens next with the main characters.

    "This author is fearless"

    This author is fearless. Story does not leave one to wonder. As a true southerner, I would have enjoyed hearing a true southern accent.
