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.

Slow start, riveting finish

Loved the story, but the narrating wasn't as I had hoped. Most of her other books are narrated by women, so it was difficult getting into this with a male narrater. Once I got used to it, I enjoyed the story and the background on Will and Angie's relationship as I've listened to these a bit out of order.

Thoroughly enjoyed this Slaughter book!

I had not listened to a Karin Slaughter book narrated by Michael Kramer before and I was a little indifferent at the beginning. I soon found myself addicted to the story and Michael's voice! Story line was riveting and in true Karin Slaughter style, I was hooked by 3 mins in. Excellent choice!

Middle of the road listen.

It's a good book, on the brinks of being a great book...It lacks in depth and suspense. As Sherlock would say "The facts dear Watson, the facts" and you get lots and lots of facts but quite predictable in the end.

Great introduction into the world of Will Trent

I’ve been reading the Karin Slaughter books (Grant County/Will Trent) in order, so a male narrator took a bit to get used to; however, he was much better than the previous two.

The weaving back and forth between past and present story lines took a bit to get used to. Especially when several chapters in a row focused on the past and you start to question if it’s a Will Trent novel, but it all came together.
