Triptych is a thriller novel by American author Karin Slaughter. The first in her Atlanta series, the novel stars Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of. A longtime fan of her Grant County series, I was interested to see how Karin Slaughter would fare in her stand-alone effort Triptych. The story of an Atlanta serial. The first two books in the series are Triptych and Fractured. Later, Sara Linton from The Grant County Series joins the series, and also appears in Undone.

It’s hard to explain without ruining it for someone who hasn’t read it yet, but the way Slaughter set the tone and your beliefs regarding certain characters and then turned them on their heads was seriously awesome. I have never read a book where the author managed that in quite that way. This was my first Karin Slaughter book.
It was excellently written and the story very layered. It stalled a little bit for me toward the middle mark 3.

It stalled a little bit for me toward the middle mark thus my rating but I still enjoyed it a lot. Will is a VERY interesting character. So was Angie, although I spent the majority of the book wanting to punch her upside her damned head. She and Will are damaged with a capital “D. View all 28 comments. This was another first for me. It was my first crime thriller and my first book by Karin Slaughter. Is Triptych a book I would have picked out for myself?
Probably not but that is the beauty of Goodreads. There were This was another first for me. There were moments that were rather shocking and hideous but I quickly found myself unable to turn away from the story, the mystery and the characters.
I will be making my way through this series. There is a peculiarity about Will Trent that has me intrigued. I need to know more about this guy and Triptych is just the beginning.
Triptych (Will Trent, #1) by Karin Slaughter
The setting is Atlanta, Georgia. When the book starts out we are hit with a gruesome murder of a hooker.
The writing of the scene was so vivid and shocking. The platform had been set. A few characters had been introduced and the mystery begins. As slaughtee character is introduced and their personal stories start to unfold I struggled with keeping my emotions and reaction towards them in check.
With the investigation of the most recent murder underway, there are certain things that link it to past attacks and murders. We are introduced to a character John Shelley whose life was stripped away from him at a young age, convicted of one of these past murders.
He is finally given his freedom back only to be faced with the fear of someone toying with that freedom. When the Atlanta skaughter department sets out friptych find the person who committed this horrid crime different angles are pursued and nothing is slauhgter cut. Michael Ormewood was the lead investigator and was rather combative at every turn but he had earned his rank and he would do his job. But there was some crazy shit going on. People had been murdered, a young girl has gone missing and there was some guy out there that has to be stopped.
The pieces of the puzzle were not coming together quick enough. He had to be found. Angie Polaski was a vice cop who was also working the case. She was someone difficult to figure out. She was rough, lived life hard and did her job well.
She shared a past with two men and was engaging in a relationship with another man. This was typical of Angie. She was like a Triptych. A canvas that appeared one way on the outside but different on the inside. Her life was about to implode. Tangled within this mystery is the man that has me intrigued. Early on in the story we learn of his past, his relationships and his triptycj. His determination and his inquisitiveness is what sets him aside as a Special Agent. It also gets him into trouble.
Will has this sixth sense with things and decides to check into a lead that starts to put the pieces of the triptch together. But a moment of doubt sets a certain ball rolling. Will has to rely on someone he didn’t expected to. In the end it was a choice that made all the difference.
This one was a definite winner for me. Loving it so far! View all triptycj comments. I only wish I could give this book “Triptych” 6 stars as in my opinion this is one hell of a story and definitely my type of book! This is a no holes barred book that is gritty, gruesome, highly addictive and an absolute page turner that I totally devoured in a couple of days. If you are particularly offended by vicious violence or the world of seedy prostitution then this book may not be for you but Slaugjter thought Karin captured it all perfectly, especially John’s time in prison which I was Wow!!!!
If you are particularly offended by vicious violence or the world of seedy prostitution then this book may not be for you but I thought Karin captured it all perfectly, especially John’s time in prison which I was utterly moved by and truly felt his torment.
I loved the way Karin described the areas in the book, Slauthter really felt like I slaughger there with the characters and appreciate that Karin has put a lot into relating this to the reader. It’s difficult to say much about the story without giving away spoilers but there are some clever twists and turns in a very carefully planned plot that concludes in an intense shocking climax between killer and victim and is karkn outstanding.
I’ve slaubhter this book on my bookshelf for a few years now not realising it featured Special Agent Will Trent and only wish I’d read it sooner as it’s a brilliant book introducing Will and his history. Although this is a standalone slauhter it can be read with or without further Will Trent books. Karin Slaughter has always been and always will be one of my favourite authors, her writing is so professional, polished and she certainly knows how to pack a punch.
Trkptych must read that I highly recommend!
