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 ...more
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 ...more

Grande história e grande protagonista. Só não leva as 5 estrelas porque não é tão bom como o primeiro. Mas é tão melhor que outros do mesmo estilo.
A tradução é que volta a deixar a desejar. Tantas gralhas e erros num livro desta qualidade é imperdoável.

The book was indeed enthralling! This was my first Karin Slaughter and I have to say this- I am so glad I did it! She has amazing talent as writer. The storyline was interesting all along. The only thing I felt missing was the character background. They had no proper history of how or why they got where they did or were who they were. The detail that was in there was a little more than just a blurb. But more than that, while reading the epilogue, I felt something very importan ...more
