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.

    "Loved It!!!"

    If you love true crime novels you should enjoy this one! Definitely not for the faint of heart tho. Ms. Slaughter does not sugar coat anything but tells it like it is. Welcome to the REAL world folks. Unfortunately, it's not always peaches n cream but can be downright wicked and ugly at times :/

    Story
    "Horrible Southern Accent"

    I almost choked when the narrator pronounced "De Cab" county as "De Kahlb." Any Atlantan knows it's wrong and it detracted from the story. If the story is about atlanta natives, the narrator should pronounce words like we do.

    The southern accent was contrived and not at all like anyone under 75 speaks. I'm a native Mississippian and I don't drag out my words like I'm in a bad version of Driving Miss Daisy. Our accents are more colorful and subtle. I love a southern accent and the narrator's was not ev n close.

    The story was great, however. Mr. Narrator, please research how us Atlantans pronounce things.

    Story
    "A good ride."

    Didn't know what to expect going into this. I'm new to Karin Slaughter. I found myself enjoying the the story and the way the seemingly different sub plots came together. I'd recommend this, if you're into this genre.

    Mom to 3 boys, full time professional. Listen to 2 books a week in my car during a long commute. On the hunt for a good, gripping read.

    Story
    "Great build up, disappointing ending."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book was well written and I enjoyed listening to it up until the last couple of chapters. For me, the ending is very important and this one was completely unsatisfying. It ended very abruptly with little closure for the characters.

    It was a good lazy day pastime reading. I wasn't as impressed with this book as some of her others but was still worth the purchase.
