The second Will Trent novel, from the Number 1 Bestseller. When Atlanta housewife Abigail Campano comes home unexpectedly one afternoon, she walks into a nightmare.

Will Trent is the flawed but effective--and deeply likable--Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent in Karin Slaughter's new book Fractured. Will has more baggage than most holding him back. An orphan, Will spent his childhood in care, that is to say, as an unwanted pawn in the Georgia state adoption system. Dyslexic but never diagnosed, he is functionally illiterate. However, since he is extremely intelligent Will, like many dyslexics, has found ways to compensate, and even to excel.
In Fractured he is the lead investigator in an apparent home invasion gone terribly, terribly wrong. In an exclusive community a mother returns home to find her brutally murdered daughter and her apparent murderer. Enraged she attacks the man and kills him. It is the job of Will Trent and his reluctant partner on the case, Faith Mitchell of the Atlanta Police Department, to determine what really happened.
Karin Slaughter is a capable writer, and her stories are fast-paced and intricate. This work particularly moved me in its portrayal of what life is like for someone who can't read. I was horrified, and made extremely grateful for my own literacy.
Publishers Weekly, 2008-05-12 At the start of bestseller Slaughter's heart-pounding sequel to 2006's Triptych, wealthy housewife Abigail Campano returns home one day to Atlanta's posh Ansley Park neighborhood to find a dead girl in the mansion's upstairs hallway, the apparent killer nearby. Thinking that the girl is her teenage daughter, Emma, the distraught Abby kills the alleged attacker only to realize that the murdered girl is not Emma, but Emma's friend, Kayla Alexander. Agent Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation soon determines that he has a murder and kidnapping on his hands. Paired with Det. Faith Mitchell, Trent scrambles to put the pieces together and find Emma before it's too late. Slaughter brings the same raw energy and brutal violence that distinguishes her Grant County series (Beyond Reach, etc.) to this new series with chilling results, while Trent and Mitchell, a pair of complex and deeply flawed heroes, will leave fans clamoring for the next installment.
