Kinda don’t want her to be the love interest With the investigation of the most recent murder underway, there are certain things that link it to past attacks and murders.

Triptych is short on likeable characters, and Karin Slaughter doesn’t shy away from picturing gruesome violence on page, so perhaps don’t read it if that’s something tripttch could trigger triptuch.

Overall this first book in marin series has roped me in and waiting impatiently in line at the library for the next book in the series. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
