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.

    "Good story."

    Good story. The characters and story were not over the top for the subject matter. Keep my interest until the end.

    "So-So"

    My first book by this author, had a hard time staying involved through the whole thing. Parts would catch my attention and hold my interest, then I'd zone out during other parts.

    "Triptych was Awesome. I Love Karin Slaughter"

    I haven't read or listened to a single Karin Slaughter book I didn't devour. I couldn't wait for the jaw dropping ending, but hated it was over.

    "Dark..."

    Great story line, enjoyed the location and all the Atlanta references but the subject and the travesty were very dark!

    "Spine tingling!"

    This one defined page turner for me. I could not read it in one sitting but not for lack of trying. Exciting and disturbing. There are so many curves.

    Story
    "Love her style."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Triptych to be better than the print version?

    Predictable but entertaining


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Triptych?

    The aunts deception.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Kramer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first but not my last


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Its not the cat that's got your tongue.


    Any additional comments?

    She is graphic at times but it adds punch to the story.She writes more like a man .I was very entertained even though the plot was very predictable.

    Story
    "Excellent first book of a series"

    The plot of the story was set at a good pace, with an excellent twist to keep the reader interested in the story line. Plus, the underlying family "drama" added good color that developed characters in a solid way.

    The main character's background was approached unobtrusively and subtly, giving the reader enough good information to become invested enough to want to read or listen to another book he is involved in.

    Story
    "Masterful, but very dark..."

    Will Trent is a good man, but broken in places by the situations of his life. This lends realism to this well-crafted mystery.
    The author is very good at not telegraphing what's coming next. Suspenseful to the end, with many realistic twists and turns.
    Some of the reader's Southern voices are somewhat contrived and not true.
