The second Will Trent novel, from the #1 bestselling author
A broken window. A bloody footprint. A murder hunt begins...
When Atlanta housewife Abigail Campano comes home unexpectedly one afternoon, she walks into a nightmare. A broken window, a bloody footprint on the stairs and, most devastating of all, the horrifying sight of her teenage daughter lying dead on the landing, a man standing over her with a bloody knife. The struggle which follows changes Abigail's life forever.
When the local police make a misjudgement which not only threatens the investigation but places a young girl's life in danger, the case is handed over to Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Apprehension Team - paired with detective Faith Mitchell, a woman who resents him from their first meeting.
But in the relentless heat of a Georgia summer, Will and Faith realise that they must work together to find the brutal killer who has targeted one of Atlanta's wealthiest, most privileged communities - before it's too late...

I absolutely adore Karin Slaughter’s work!
Each as good as the next, I just found out that the main character from Triptych had become a huge book series and I bought Fracture at the speed of light! Triptych was the first crime novel in my early teens to really throw me through a loop, and introduce me to huge twists and shock endings, to step outside of linear, formulaic and boring writing and into the world of genuine curiosity, unpredictability, fantastic world building and nuance. I absolutely loved Triptych, and am so excited about reading each and every one of the Will Trent series books! This one hasn’t disappointed at all, I rediscovered many things I love about Slaughter’s writing. I love her attention to detail and her methods of really introducing and bonding us to the characters, the complex and forever unfolding sense of personality that they all have and I love her ability to really create a consistent and ever expanding picture in your mind that’s all encompassing. With Slaughter’s work, you could be reading for hours and it’d feel like a few minutes! I have the biggest soft spot for her stuff even in adulthood and I’m delighted that Triptych became something more.
