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.

I am not sure. I think both would be great.
In the beginning when we discover what type of person the Georgia cop is. Unexpected.
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.
Yes. Woke up early "exercise" to listen to it. :)
Closet Psychopaths, or openly Psychopathics
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.
It was very well done. He was able to change his tone of voice between characters with apparent ease.
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.)
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.
...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.
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.
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 really enjoyed this book. can't wait to read the next one in the series.
