Publisher Comments:


Ansley Park is one of Atlanta’s most upscale neighborhoods—but in one gleaming mansion, in a teenager’s lavish bedroom, a girl has been savagely murdered. And in the hallway, her mother stands amid shattered glass, having killed her daughter’s attacker with her bare hands. Detective Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is one of the first on the scene. Trent soon sees something that the Atlanta cops are missing, something in the trail of blood, in a matrix of forensic evidence, and in the eyes of the stunned mother. When another teenage girl goes missing, Trent knows that this case, which started in the best of homes, is about to cut quick and deep through the ruins of perfect lives broken wide-open: where human demons emerge with a vengeance.


Slaughter, one of the best crime novelists in America ("Washington Post"), brings back the characters from her "New York Times"-bestselling work "Triptych" for a shocking showdown of heart-stopping suspense.

A rich housewife strangles the man who attacks her after savagely murdering her daughter. The police arrive, and the housewife discovers that the teenage girl left in a pool of blood is not her daughter, and the man she believed was about to attack her had actually been stabbed himself, trying to save the girl.

It's then the nightmare really begins. The housewife's daughter Emma is missing; it's her best friend the mother thought she saw beaten and stabbed.

Time for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to step in because of family connections, annoying an already tense Atlanta Police Department.

Will Trent, a laid-back special agent for the GBI, is teamed with feisty Atlanta detective Faith Mitchell to figure out the not only the motives for the initial murder, but who's who in a mess of crimes. Trent and Mitchell, who appear in other Slaughter novels, make one of the oddest -- and most interesting -- teams in the mystery genre. Both have secrets that affect their work, without ruining their path to untangling the mysteries they're forced to plod through.

Slaughter's genius is making every character -- even secondary and background people -- potential threats to the case. Unlike many writers, Slaughter describes people in ways that make you remember them long after reading the book.

"Fractured" is truly a finish-in-one-sitting read; though the crime is vividly played out in the first pages, it's not until you close the last page that you know what Agent Trent and Detective Mitchell discover ... even if all that ends well is a bit broken.
