Fractured – Print

is Karin Slaughter’s latest gift and I thought it showed a growing maturity to her writing style. The story kicks off with a wealthy Atlanta housewife strangling an intruder in her home. I won’t give away more than that, as there are a number of twists, typical of Slaughter, that really make the story. This book was not a continuation of the Grant County series, but is a continuation of Triptych. Further the story isn’t as over the top gruesome and viscerally confronting as her previous works, but she hasn’t lost that edge that makes it difficult to put her books down. I for one don’t miss some of the more gruesome elements, and I think I enjoyed this book more than any of her previous works.
