Triptych
Triptych: (Will Trent / Atlanta series 1) | Karin Slaughter
The first Will Trent novel, from the No. 1 Bestseller. When Atlanta police detective Michael Ormewood is called out to a murder scene at the notorious Grady Homes, he finds himself faced with one of the the most brutal killings of his career: Aleesha Monroe is found in the stairwell in a pool of her own blood, her body horribly mutilated. As a one-off killing it's shocking, but when it becomes clear that it's just the latest in a series of similar attacks, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are called in, and Michael is forced into working with Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Apprehension Team - a man he instinctively dislikes. Twenty-four hours later, the violence Michael sees around him every day explodes in his own back yard. And it seems the mystery behind Monroe's death is inextricably entangled with a past that refuses to stay buried ...

Another fantastic read by Karin Slaughter! Definitely enjoyed the first book in the Will Trent series!

Bklover I‘m going to have to read this one. I‘ve had it for ages! 2mo
Sweetdgabe87 @Bklover yes it‘s a must!!! Have you read any of her other books? 2mo
Bklover I‘m pretty sure I have. I know I read one that was part of a series- it wasn‘t the beginning of the series though. 2mo
Sweetdgabe87 @Bklover definitely have to read her series! She has this one which it the first in the will Trent but Grant County is the other series and it comes first. There‘s a crossover book at some point in the will Trent series and I just haven‘t gotten to it yet. I‘m from Georgia so I may be somewhat biased in her work! Lol 2mo

Still trying to catch up on reviews-
This is the first in the Will Trent series. I have to say that at the beginning I was confused because it seemed like Trent was a secondary character and then Slaughter worked her magic and it all made sense. This was a strong series first and I will continue reading them. There are some triggers.

A great series with one word titles is The Will Trent Series by Karin Slaughter, well apart from the last one. What‘s the phrase, the exception proves the rule!

Got in an #audiowalk with Pages yesterday. I start reading the Will Trent series a few years ago (didn't realize it was part of a series), so now I'm going to the beginning and playing catch up.

Bookzombie Did you read the Grant County series too? I understand they are related. I have the last book in GC to read before I start Will Trent. 4mo

Because of @swishandflick I decided it may be time to workout things with Karin Slaughter and start the Will Trent series. 🤗 I blame you if I become antisocial for the next several weeks because I‘m sure I will drop everything else to read the books quickly!

Spectacular! The first 200 pages especially are absolutely flawless, I'm obsessed with the way Slaughter set things up and then completely flipped the script. My jaw was on the floor when the pieces clicked into place. So incredibly well done and MUCH more riveting and satisfying than your average thriller these days. She really is in a class of her own. Brava! 👏🏽

First book finished for #24in48. I'm already reaching for another of her books 😂

Done with book 5 from @Beckykearns list! I enjoyed the plot and I loved the character build up. You feel a connection with the characters. I felt this is more of a psychological thriller focusing on the psychology of the perp and less of a whodunnit because you can figure out the whodunnit part. There are no dull moments and it definitely kept me hooked! I was so eager to find out what happens next! 3.5/5

I flew through this, even listening while at work and staying up way past my bedtime. This was the first in the Will Trent series and it was definitely a gripping read (or rather, listen). The book starts off strong and continues at an excellent pace with lots of interesting characters.

Whew!! Can‘t wait for the next installment. 🙃

Although I was SHOCKED Slaughter would create such a vapid misogynist (Michael, one of the MCs) after the fantastic female leads of Pretty Girls & Good Daughter— the writing itself is still on point and I was soon startled once again at the ease with which she weaves the lives of her characters together creating indelible, heart-pumping stories. Several times I had to put the book down, shocked!

I loved this description of the main character‘s feeling about his dyslexia. 😣💔📚💗

“The irony was that he loved words, adored books and stories and anything else that might take him out of his surroundings. In a rare moment of candor, he had once told her that being in a library was like sitting down at a table laid with all his favorite foods but not being able to eat any of them. And he hated himself for it.”

At The Book Rack today and @dsfisher asks if I‘ve ever read any Karin Slaughter, because she keeps seeing her on Litsy. Turns out, neither of us have, so I go on Goodreads to see if the books are stand alone or parts of series and find the first title in the series. Then, I head to Litsy to check the Litsy ratings. @Andrew65 gave the tagged book a pick. That‘s good enough for me! #blameitonLitsy #bookhaul

Andrew65 Thanks, 😊👍 Love Karin Slaughter, great books providing you don‘t mind gritty! Blindsighted is the first book in the Will Trent Series which I read last year. If you like reading a series in order I would recommend reading the Grant County Series first (6 Books) as I am told there is some cross over. @dsfisher @DGRachel The first book is 1y

This was the perfect easy crime read for the busy run up to Christmas when it can be hard to concentrate. Having read, and loved, my first Karin Slaughter recently, I decided to start with the first Will Trent book and there was no disappointment. Both the characterisation and the plot were great and it was a taut read. This author‘s got a new fan.

bedandabook Thanks @DeborahSmall for recommending I start with this one, and work my way through her books in chronological order. I can feel an enjoyable few months coming up! 2y

Just finished the first book in the Will Trent Series (having previously read and loved the Grant County Series). I really enjoyed the way his book was written and think I am going to really like the idiosyncratic main Character. I do also hope Angie figures in future books too. This was an enjoyably plotted story. If you like gritty mystery books I would certainly recommend the books of Karin Slaughter, I certainly do!
