I really need to write my reviews before starting my next book. I get distracted and I forget to come back. At the moment I am distracted with book #3 in this series and I love it so far!!

Fractured was another fantastic read. I found the plot to be just as engaging as I did in book #1 and the characters continue to intrigue me. Karin Slaughter writes her characters in such a way that she gives you slivers of their personalities, bits and pieces of their pasts and how each character connects to t

Another good read. Will is an enigma. Not sure what to make of him. He is dyslexic, socially inept, awkward, lives with a chihuahua and lives with Angie ... do not like her. But they have a history ... we shall see what the next story brings.

“Talk about sloppy seconds.
Was there such a thing as sloppy thousandths?”

Teenagers, sex, murder, the heat of Atlanta ... good storyline.

In the book she is blonde but it is MY review.

We are introduced to Faith Mitchell, a Detective with the Georgia Police

Just getting started in this series and already I find myself getting sucked in fast! Will Trent is such and intriguing man He is a broken man. An awkward, eccentric personality. Yet he's also decent and kind. He is dysfunctional. He is brilliant. He is sexy as fuck, but in a shy and guarded sort of way. But more than anything... he is lonely. And yet he avoids close connections, they bring on too many questions. He has dreams, just like everyone else. But he buries them so deep that he

Yes, I've given "Fractured" 5 stars. NOT because it's the best book I've ever read, or because it's 'deep and meaningful literature.'
I gave it five stars because it grabbed me, and kept me inside reading all weekend. And isn't THAT what a good mystery should do? There wasn't ever a good place to stop!

But there's many more positive things about "Fractured" that should be said:
The main character is Will Trent, a member of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. He's complex, has a deep and troubled b

I really loved Triptych when I read it, but it took me some time to warm up to Fractured. Will Trent is a very unconventional main character — after all, he’s a GBI investigator that can’t read. He’s awkward, socially inept, and at times, easily flustered. I tend to waffle back and forth in my belief of the scenario but by the time I get to the end, I have to admit that I feel for him. Slaughter takes his illiteracy and really makes it matter, as his dyslexia leads to him discovering some key fa ...more

Another great read from Karin slaughter,she's one of my favourite authors.Looking forward to her next book got a few to read.this is a kidnapping story and murder great writing love will Trent fantastic character.liked this one.
Fractured by Karin Slaughter is a 2008 publication.

This second book in the Will Trent series, is a complicated case involving the death of an unpopular girl, and the kidnapping of her affluent friend, Emma.

Will finds himself feeling a little off his game when it comes to light that he and Emma’s father have a shared history and Will must work on this case with a partner, Faith Williams, a woman who holds a grudge against him.

This crime story is complicated, sordid, and pretty lurid. The polic

This is the second in the Will Trent series and in this installment Will is directed to work with Faith, his future partner, for the first time. They are assigned to a murder, kidnapping case where Will has a tumultuous personal history with one of the victims Fathers, which he chooses to keep to himself. A good thriller that has everyone stumped in the beginning with virtually no leads. Will and Faith are forced to come together and start building some bonds quickly in order to save one of the ...more

This is the 2nd in the Will Trent series- I'm getting to like this series a lot- to me this book is more of a 3.5 than a 4- To really get the 'gist' of this series - I would recommend starting with the first Will Trent book which was "Triptych"

Will Trent is with the Georgia Bureau of Investigations. A murder happens in Ansley Park one of Atlanta's most desirable neighborhoods. But in one gleaming mansion, in a teenager's lavish bedroom, a girl has been savagely murdered. And in the hallway, her

Justo seriam as 3,5*.
Gostei da premissa, gostei do final, gosto muito do Will e adorei a detective.
No entanto, em relação ao primeiro, achei este mais fraco.
Houve alturas em que me custou um pouco a ler.
No entanto recomendo, é um óptimo policial com um final que nos deixa de coração apertado.

Wauw! Heel goed boek!
4.5 stars

I am forever in love and bound to Will Trent.
Will Trent is the most oddly refreshing character I've read in a long time. He feels so authentically human I can completely imagine him being real. There's really not much else to say except that I really enjoyed this book and it's taking a lot of self control to not recommend it to every person I meet.

As I always say whenever I finish a Karin Slaughter novel--what an incredibly talented writer.

Can't wait to start the third book in the series.

Depois do excelente ”Tríptico” (4*), primeiro livro da série Will Trent, da escritora norte-americana Karin Slaughter (n. 1971) ”Fraturado” estava no topo das prioridades de leitura para 2015.
A premissa inicial de ”Fraturado” é excelente, um assassinato, “vários” crimes, um rapto com sequestro, muito suspense e vários equívocos, numa mansão sumptuosa em Ansley Park, Atlanta, com o agente especial Will Trent do GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation) - é mesmo uma personagem “especial”, um disléxic

Por dois motivos: porque é mais fraco que o primeiro e porque a narrativa andou ali um bocadinho às voltas, sem rumo...
Continua a ser um livro policial bastante bom e não fossem estes dois pormenores (e os múltiplos erros de revisão do português - "alugaram no aeroporto um carro alugado", "descrevam as raparigas socialmente e academicamente", etc) teria dado mais estrelas.
Gostei muito das personagens de Will, Faith e Amanda. Já da Angie...a minha opinião ficará para os próximos volumes, prova

I’ve missed you, Karin Slaughter. I read the standalone, Cop Town, almost five months ago. I mourned the end of the Grant County series seven months ago. In between, I was introduced to GBI detective Will Trent in Triptych. I gave that one five stars, but I may have liked the second in the series, Fractured, even better.

In Fractured, Will Trent takes over a case that has been mishandled from the get-go by the Atlanta P.D. The daughter of a wealthy auto dealer appears to have been brutally murder

I gave this book five stars because the story really resonated with me. Even though I have never experienced what the characters went through, I felt their pain. That's good story telling. From chapter one this book hooked me and did not let go until "The End". I'm not a huge fan of epilogues, but in this case I do think it was necessary to show her (I'm not saying who "her" is, either. You'll have to read to find out.) life afterwards, how it changed because of the events that happened. A terri ...more

I was not surprised or delighted, but it kept my interest.

The entire book is watching the investigation - a police procedural. The suspense is wondering if the kidnaped victim is alive and if they can find her or save her. When two witnesses were questioned by the police, they did not tell what they knew. That was frustrating because it delayed things. When they eventually told a day or so later, the investigation speeded in new directions. I was angry at the witnesses. They were minor character

Will is a good detective and an endearing gentleman despite the learning disorders and social ineptness he has. The author does an excellent job of creating such a three-dimensional character that I can’t help but root for him. I think it is safe to say that Will will be on my favorite list of beta heroes. The layers and depth that built into the supporting characters including villains make this book so much more than just a crime-solving novel. Reading in order is recommended.

Love Karin Slaughter. Not sure if this was as good as the first book, but still a worthwhile read.

Great characters, skillfully constructed and interwoven plots, and good character development for a series. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.

This was a really enjoyable read. I liked the way the author keeps the mystery of the story unfolding and at the same time is able to give us delicate and intimate snapshots of the main characters and what makes them who they are.
Will Trent, talented investigator, is perhaps the least well drawn, though what makes him interesting is his major flaws - his dyslexia, his background as an orphan, his unstable partner in life whom he's in love with. His partner in the investigation, Faith, is, in my

I really like Will and Faith too (for some reason I don't like Angie very much, I don't trust her either and I'm so rooting for Will and Faith, like Amanda said he could really do better.). They're going to be a funny pair, I can feel it. By the way, Amanda is also something. Will is really a good agent and despite his problems he doesn't let them be a obstacle to his job. It is true that makes things a little more harder for him, but he puts all the pieces of the puzzle together, tries to see t ...more
