Another solid story from this wonderful author. Not a home run, but a double at least!
My grandmother was a house mother at an Orphanage in SC and my sister and I spent a week every summer there. For Will Trent, the stigma and experiences of growing up an orphan in various foster homes and a children's home both shape and haunt him. It's an extremely accurate work of fiction.
Equally fascinating is Trent's dyslexia, how it hinders and helps him as an investigator. Slaughter does a great job with this throughout the entire series.
The mystery here revolves around the murder of two young adults and the kidnapping of another girl. The police have to find her before she is killed. This is where Slaughter is masterful. She knows how procedure and the law work for criminals and against victims.
Phil Gigante does a good job on narration. At first his tone grated on me, but in the end I was completely engrossed in the story, a certain sign of great writing and great narration.

I love Det. Will Trent, flaws and all. The women in his life have flaws, too - and that's OK, but why do they all have to be so whiny and full of self-doubt? I think part of the problem here may have been the narrator's take on the female characters in "Fractured" - his voices for them all ended up in the "high and whiny" register. So perhaps my criticism lies more in the fact that although Phil Gigante has a great reading voice, his skills as an actor are fairly questionable...
I preferred Triptych over this book - so start there....
