Aspects of this book were really excellent. The book starts strongly and with the fast pace and strong characters somehow gets better. It was a triptych, three canvases hinged together to make one image when it was open, another image when it was closed. Slaughter starts off by knitting an intricate cable knit sweater but often forgets the stitch, switches shades of yarn or in some cases even leaves some areas incomplete.

Triptych (Will Trent, #1) by Karin Slaughter

Triptyh help us recommend your next book, tell us what you enjoy reading. Will is a VERY interesting character. Just like my first foray with Karin Slaughter thanks to Pretty GirlsI once again come away from my reading adventure with hearts in my eyes.
