This started out to be a good story but it turned out to be 200 pages too long, there is too much description and it takes forever to get to any suspects or to move on with clues or to even get to the suspect,I don't like to skip pages but I had to skip and skip to just stay with the story and get past all the unnecessary descriptions, etc. This is a good author but this time she got a little long winded for me.
I have always been a Karin Slaughter fan. Her books are always so easy to dive into and get lost in. I did enjoy this book and again she didn't disappoint with the ending, but I felt that this book was not as intense as her other books. It actually took me longer to read this book because it was easier to put down and go about my business. I would recommend this book , but it doesn't live up the the intensity of the Grant County series.
Like all of Slaughters books this one takes the cake. Will Trent was not one of my favorite characters in Slaughter's series but you know what, that changed when reading Fractured. Trent shows more of a compatible side while running to keep up with the deadlines of the book. Great read, Lets you know just enough to keep you guessing but not enough to let you think you know all that's going on.
Another great book from Karin Slaughter. The suspense really keeps you interested and you have to continue reading. I just couldn't put it down. Put this book on your list of books to be read, you won't be sorry. I'm looking forward to picking up more of Karin's books.
Classic Karin Slaughter book! Fractured is the sequel to last years, Triptych, featuring Special Agent Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. From the start it is loaded with suspense and many twists!
Fractured both describes the teenagers he encounters on a crime scene and Will Trent himself. Enjoyable character who perseveres despite uncooperative police and victims. Will is admirable and likable with his many flaws and impressive skills. Good mystery that unfolds at just the right speed to keep this reader anxious to return to the mystery.
Affluent attorney Abigail Campano returns to her mansion in Atlanta's upscale Ansley Park section only to see a dead girl lying on the upstairs hallway. Without getting a close look, a stunned Abigail assumes the victim is her teenage daughter Emma. The apparent killer had not yet left the premise and the outraged Abby kills him. Georgia Bureau of Investigation Agent Will Trent investigates along with Atlanta police Detective Faith Mitchell. The father Paul arrives filled with belligerence and bluster. Paul looks at the body and notices the lack of a birthmark; he insists the corpse of the teen is not his daughter; he and Abigail feel guilt and relief as Emma's friend Kayla Alexander lies dead on the floor.
Will concludes that besides the obvious murder, someone kidnapped Emma. His fear is that they are too late to save the life of the seventeen year old girl but he and Faith remain determined to try; while the case is already confusing with the homicide and the death of the alleged killer by the lioness in her home, neither expected the twists that the investigation takes. Still both cops fear they are too late.
Police procedural fans need to set aside time for this one sitting 400-page thriller as the audience will keep on adding one more exciting chapter after another to read. The two cops Will and Faith are a wonderful pairing as both are dedicated, but flawed; those personal defects augment a strong thriller. Filled with twists, FRACTURED will leave Karin Slaughter fans clamoring for the next GBI installment (see TRIPTYCH for the previous one).
Wealthy housewife Abigail Campano returns home to find her daughter dead on her upstairs landing and a man with a knife standing over her. Fighting for her life, Abby kills the attacker with her bare hands. When GBI Investigator Will Trent looks over the scene, he sees some things that the Atlanta Police Department missed. Will is soon paired with Detective Faith Mitchell as they try to uncover what really happened to Emma Campano.
Wow! I was glued to this book right from the prologue. There are a couple of twists at the beginning of the book that I certainly didn't expect. I was also surprised by who the villain was. This is the second book featuring Will Trent and I find him a very interesting character. I also enjoyed the addition of Faith Williams and hope to see more of her in the future. My rating: 5 Stars.
Dyslexic detective Will Trent has to solve a baffling murder: A young rich girl has been battered to death in her own home. Her mother returns too soon and finds the murderer still standing above her daughter - she flies into a rage and kills him. But ... the girl is not her daughter, but her daughter's friend, and the man she killed turns out not to be the murderer. Her daughter is actually missing and there seems to have been a fourth person in the house.
Great characters, and once you find out who the bad guy is, the tension really increases!
Every book Karin Slaughter writes is fabulous. This is no exception!! I love her gritty and raw writing. Keeps you engrossed till the end and leaves you wanting the next book. My favorite author of this genre by far!!
A seventeen-year-old girl is found murdered in her home by her mother. At first the Atlanta police believe it is a simple case of one victim, one killer. But when another girl is brutally killed, and a third goes missing soon afterwards, they realise they are dealing with something far more sinister. And the young rookie detective heading up the case suddenly finds herself out of her depth. Atlanta Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Apprehension Team is quickly brought in to help the investigation. But with the body count mounting and the local community frozen in terror the killer is proving almost impossible to trace.
