I was glad when Karin Slaughter started a new crime series two years ago with Triptych, as I was tiring of her Grant County novels (especially after the way she chose to end the most recent, Beyond Reach.) Fractured is a sequel to Triptych and again features Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Wil Trent. A wealthy Atlanta housewife kills an intruder in her home after discovering the dead body of a girl whom she initially mistakes for her daughter. Her nightmare is just beginning, however, as it soon becomes clear that her teenager has actually been kidnapped. Agents Amanda Wagner and Wil Trent of the GBI are called in to investigate the crime and recover the girl they are assisted by Atlanta State Police detective Faith Mitchell, who has major issues with Trent after he helped end her mother's career on the force. The plot barrels forward inexorably, sometimes focusing on the distraught parents, sometimes on the cops and sometimes on the villains, and the suspense is excruciating. Slaughter also uses the city of Atlanta to great effect, exploring wealthy Ansley Park (where the mystery begins), grimy slums and the university campus. But the conflicts between the flawed investigators really made this book stand out for me, and I can't wait to hear from them again. Also recommended:'A Stranger Lies There' - an exciting, moving crime novel based in the desert around Palm Springs, it won the Malice Domestic Award for best first mystery.

I loved this book. It had alot of twists & turns. I finished it in 1 1/2 days. I hated to see it end. Ms Slaughter took alot of heat on this site for her last book (which I liked)I think she is terrifc & I am looking forward to he rnext book!

Fractured is simply amazing !!! before i read this i was saying to myself well i wanna read Triptych first but i realized very quickly that it didn't matter, Karin's writing style is so good and her characters are amazing and thought provoking it seemed like a stand alone book to be honest..

I usually read a variety of books but I've always been a crime suspense thriller girl. Actually this is the first book I've read from this author and I loved it from start to finish. If there is anything I despise its books that start off extremely slow where I lose interest altogether but it was exciting to read and definitely keeps you going until you figure out the next detail.

Gosh, I have so enjoyed Karin Slaughter books. This one did not disappoint. I loved it. Is it me, or do her books keep getting better and better? I know this book features a character from Triptych, but I don't think you have to read it first - this book stands on its own.

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).-------------------- Harriet Klausner

I have read Karin Slaughter before and have always enjoyed her books. But 'Fractured' was the book that I could not wait to see what happened next. I received the book 2 days ago and I have already finished it. It is outstanding. I recommend this book to anyone that loves a good mystery with twists and turns. T. Lovell

Slaughter's treatment of 'damaged souls' like Will Trent and Lena Adams (Georgia County series) is amazing. The reader is so caught up in the characters that when the twists and turns occur in the plot, it hits you out of nowhere! I could not put this book down!

Karin Slaughter¿s latest release, Fractured is completely deserving of the acclaim and high praises it has received. Abigail Campano arrives home to discover her door unlocked and shattered glass around her feet. Her first response is fear for the well being of her daughter, Emma. As she rushes upstairs, she comes face to face with the battered and bloody body of her daughter and a man kneeling over her body with a knife in his hand. Pure adrenaline and rage consumes Abigail and she strangles the man to death. Enter Will Trent, member of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Will struggles with the crime scene and determines that the brutalized body upstairs does not belong to Emma Campano, but to her best friend Kayla, and the murdered man Abigail strangled with her bare hands was actually Emma¿s boyfriend, whose attempt to save Emma and Kayla got him killed. The shift from the murder to the reality of the kidnapping of Emma, forces Will to pair up with Atlanta officer Faith Mitchell. Running against the clock and without any suspects or leads, Will and Faith must work together to find Emma and catch a killer. Fractured is filled with plot twists and heart pounding intensity. Beyond Karin Slaughter¿s ability to provide her readers with an excellent storyline and superb mystery, she is able to delve into the characters emotions and backgrounds so deeply that readers feel they know these men and women. The return of our favorites like Will and his boss Amanda paired with new intriguing characters like Faith, Abigail and the monstrous villains will surly please its audience. Fractured is by far one of Slaughter¿s best works, she gives her readers everything and them some more. Valerie Jones

I am a card holder with two returns of funds due to suit but as I tried to use it today the clerk was unable to use them and then the credits disappeared. I am a bit upset but just paid for the books I had chosen?

Love, Love, Love this book! I am a huge fan of Karin Slaughter and once again she didn't let me down. This is a fast pace thriller that once you start reading you will get nothing else down. It is a must read for the Will Trent Series!

I just started her Will Trent series and really enjoyed the first three. It is nice to have another author to add to my "must read" list. My only negative is that there are very few pages that do not contain vulgar language. A little of that goes a long way and to me adds nothing to the story. If that does not offend you then give this book a try. It is a hard one to put down. Ddog
