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.

Critic Reviews

"Volcanic heroes and villians, who act both surprisingly and logically....Slaughter has the courage to detonate her biggest bombshells early on, keeping even the wariest readers off-balance." (Kirkus Reviews)

Glad it was short

Interesting plot, but overall this was beyond annoying. So many cliches and stereotypes... it made my head hurt. I almost stopped the story when the reader was voicing the guy who’d had a stroke... It was like a bad movie where you fast forward to the end. I was hoping to like this series, but I’m one and done. Save your credit, don’t waste it on this one.

Abridged version

I enjoyed The story however it ended in a short five hours. I ordered the unabridged version so be careful if you order this book and make sure you check which version you have
