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.

    "This is an AMAZING STORY!!!"

    Ms. Slaughter has written an amazing story, sometimes tough to handle, but a tight, well written mystery. This is the kind of work I've seen from each of her books I've read. .

    It is too bad that this narrator doesn't do this book justice. His monotone about drove me crazy, but the story was good enough that I was willing to put up with it.

    This book carries you with full force all the way to the end.

    Story
    "Great Great Book!"
    Where does Triptych rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is been one of the most suspenseful books I've listened to in a long time! It's the1st one I've read of Karin Slaughter but it definitely won't be the last.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the characters. Will Trent is so open and honest.


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

    I loved his accents for the characters. He did an awesome job and reeled me in. I will be looking for more books he has read.


    Any additional comments?

    Great Job to the author and the narrator.

    Story
    "Fine if you love the F word!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I tried listening to this book. 20 minutes in I had lost track of just how many times I had heard the F word, motherF, and cocks****r. Seriously, if you have to bury a story in constant language like that why bother? I have read and listened to dozens of murder mystery writers but I will not be reading or listening to anymore of hers!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything but by this author, think I will stick to Kay Hooper or someone.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Triptych?

    The unnecessary vulgar language!

    "timing"
    What would have made Triptych better?

    I do not know; however, I believe reading is a judgment of the reader and timing of one's own life.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Karin Slaughter again?

    maybe


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Kramer’s performances?

    absolutely


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I believe my comments based more on not enjoying the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a bad review.. Read and judge for yourself.

    Story
    "Very Intense!"
    What made the experience of listening to Triptych the most enjoyable?

    I really didn't notice any chapters.....it was very fast paced and difficult to stop listening.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. You really did want to hear how it would all turn out.


    Any additional comments?

    Michael did a pretty good job with the male voices, but most of the females tended to sound pretty similar. I didn't find it too distracting though.

    What did you like best about Triptych? What did you like least?

    Good story - I'll buy the book so that I can use my own voice while reading it. The narrator was awful - I could have fallen asleep.

    "Very bad"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't understand why a writer like Karin Slaughter can write a book having to use the F--- word every sentence when it definitely was not necessary. I only read 3 chapters because it was so bad and feel robbed that I have to pay for that trashy book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Triptych?

    All.


    Any additional comments?

    Story line was not bad, just the vulgar language.
