it took a little while to finish but still a good book overall. This book had a great leading character. ( )

A good, suspenseful murder mystery. "In the city of Atlanta young women are dying- at the hands of a killer, who signs his work with a single, chilling act of mutilation." The tongue is bitten off! Two stories meld to one as we discover who is doing the murders and who is set up to take the place. A good, quick read! ( )

This was the first book I've read in the Will Trent Series, having read and loved the Grant County Series. On this opening book in the series, it is definitely another series to enjoy - what's not to like with an idiosyncratic character like Will Trent (kern to learn more about him), as well as Angle, and an intriguing and surprising plot line. I particularly enjoyed the intriguing relationship between Will and Angie. I do hope she appears in future books. ( )

I recently re-read this and upped my score from 4 to 5 stars. Despite the fact that I read this only a few years ago I seem to have suffered major memory loss and couldn't remember anything about it. Which proved to be brilliant because it surprised me all over again. I love books that genuinely make my jaw drop and this is one. Can't wait to read the next in the series (again)
Be warned;very gruesome, violent and sexual. ( )

This book is based on foul play from the author, something I noticed in another novel of her as well. The narrator of the first chapter isn't merely unreliable, which is acceptable of course, he also doesnt have THOUGHTS about his earlier deeds, even when being confronted with the results. He reacts exactly to these results as every other noninvolved person would. This is extremely unlikely and only introduced by the author to save her story. A shame. ( )

Tríptico – primeiro volume da série Will Trent de Karin Slaughter – é um thriller policial de tirar o fôlego. Com livros traduzidos para mais de 30 idiomas e 25 milhões de exemplares vendidos, Karin Slaughter se tornou uma das mais importantes autoras de thrillers dos Estados Unidos. Sucesso mais do que merecido, pois Tríptico é um exemplo de thriller engenhoso. Personagens intrigantes e com personalidades repletas de matizes; trama inteligente – construída de forma a provocar tensão – e com reviravoltas instigantes.

O livro é dividido em três partes. Na primeira, o leitor é levado a acreditar que o enredo tomará um rumo comum, pois somos apresentados a um homicídio e ao início da investigação. Porém, logo em seguida Slaughter deita por terra toda crença que o leitor construiu até o momento. A autora foi ardilosa... Ela nos dá pistas desde o início, mas que não chamam nossa atenção em um primeiro momento. Só vão fazer sentido quando começamos a organizar a peças apresentadas.

A grande sacada da trama não é descobrir a identidade do assassino, pois esta nos é apresentada pouco a pouco, numa sequencia de relatos e pistas. O que torna Tríptico tão instigante é a tensão de saber os contornos do crime, pois a história é contada sob pontos de vista variados, e perceber que os personagens não têm a mesma perspectiva e ainda não perceberam o que realmente está acontecendo.

A autora foca o enredo no desenvolvimento psicológico e emocional dos personagens, deixando um pouco de lado a ação. Entretanto, esse aspecto foi o que me seduziu, pois todo o contexto da trama está diretamente ligado à intimidade dos personagens. A autora tem um estilo próprio, tanto de construção quanto de escrita, e são essas diferenças que não me deixam enjoar do gênero.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440242924, Mass Market Paperback)

In the city of Atlanta, young women are dying—at the hands of a killer who signs his work with a single, chilling act of mutilation. Leaving behind enough evidence to fuel a frenzied police hunt, this cunning madman is bringing together dozens of lives, crossing 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 another player has entered the game: a loser ex-con who has stumbled upon the killer’s trail in the most coincidental of ways—someone who may be the key to breaking the case wide open….
