When rich Atlanta homemaker Abigail Campano finds a knife-wielding intruder standing over her daughter’s corpse, she kills him. But Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Will Trent learns the vic is not Campano’s daughter and the dead perp may not have been a perp at all. A dogged investigator who hides his dyslexia from his bosses, Trent wouldn’t trouble Sherlock Holmes in a pub quiz. Karin Slaughter’s Fractured has unexpected twists and intriguing characters, but it’s Trent’s believable fear and shame that sets this procedural apart. B
