I cannot remember the title but it was a detective story involving a home invasion that resulted in two teenagers being killed and another kidnapped.  It was

set in a large city in the East, the primary detective was in foster care and had a nickname of Trashcan and was dyslexic. Any help tracking it down

is much appreciated. Thanks

Could you be referring to detective Will Trent who is featured in several of Karin Slaughter's books? He's in Tripych, Fractured, Undone, Broken, Fallen and Criminal.  Will Trent was found in a trashcan when he was a baby and was then taken to the Atlanta Children's Home. He is dyslexic.
