    These books are amazing. Great character development and twists you really don’t see coming.

    I’m an insatiable reader. Most books are forgotten as soon as I read them. Triptych, on the other hand, is a book I haven’t been able to forget. I remember scenes, conversations, and even the d├ęcor of the houses described. Amazing story, amazing writer. Congratulation Ms. Slaughter
