Publisher's Summary

The internationally best-selling author "squarely in the ranks of Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs" (Publishers Weekly) shows off her superb talent with this brilliantly conceived, skillfully executed tale of suspense.

In Karin Slaughter's exciting new thriller, an officer is shot point-blank in the Grant County police station and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver is wounded, setting off a terrifying hostage situation with medical examiner Sara Linton at the center. Working outside the station, Lena Adams, newly reinstated to the force, and Frank Wallace, Jeffrey's second in command, must try to piece together who the shooter is and how to rescue their friends before Jeffrey dies. For the sins of the past have caught up with Sara and Jeffrey - with a vengeance...

Deftly interweaving present and past, Slaughter - dubbed "the new face of crime" by Book magazine - offers another brilliant knife-edge tale of suspense that cements her place among the most outstanding practitioners of crime fiction today.

Indelible

This has been my favorite Kariin Slaughter book to date. That's saying a lot because the books in this series leading up to this were truly fabulous. I enjoy the complexity of her characters and the well spun tale. Without giving away any spoilers, I'll just end by saying that often used technique of many authors ( though seldom ever well) of flip flopping time periods in this book helped masterfully develop the plot to near perfection.

A great story teller!

I absolutely love the characters in these books. I read them out of order, but it didn't matter. Amazing! You won't be able to stop listening.

Best in the series so far.

I think this is the best book in this series so far. In the last couple of books it was going towards a soap opera drama. This was a fast pace mystery with two time lines.

Excellent Thriller

Karen Slaughter is one of my favorite authors and the narrator is great. The story has enough twists and turns to keep you coming back for more.

Great Jeffery Spotlight

I have all of the Will Trent series recorded by Ms Early and I now am working on the original Grant County series. The Will Trent series is a more mature Karin Slaughter writings with lots of humor if you listen for it while listening to complex moral issues in the mystery.
I had Beyond Reach recorded by Joyce Bean, but it was many years ago and I was heartsick at the ending and did not listen to the whole recording. Now that author has found the voice of her writings via Ms Early, I am slowly buying all that Ms Early has recorded. She has the authors gig spot on so to speak and she makes the characters come to life.
In this book, even Amanda Wagner, Will Trent series, is introduced!!! Ms Slaughter said she was changing to the Will Trent series in all of her new introductions in W Trent series from Grant County and you can see all the hints going that way, if like me you have all of the W. Trent series and can see the blooming of that series while you go back to listen to Grant County.
I love Jeffery and Will, and the more they are spotlighted the better. Hence I have not listened to Grant C. in order. Like many of Ms Slaughter fans, I am not enamored by the Lena character so I looked for Grant C books that I thought would feature Jeffery and this one does not disappoint. I do use the 1.25x speed to match the mystery. It has taken me many of the authors books to finally get her message. I use to think why does she write about such terrible evil insane criminals? When in fact it is not about that character but the wonderful ongoing characters eg: Jeffery and Will. The superb female characters eg: Sara, Amanda and the great wit of Faith that knocks her writings out of the park and I have enjoyed re listening to each story again.
Were my comments of help?

New writing style, same great storytelling.

This Slaughter book was written differently than her others. The chapters skip from present to past. You get to learn a lot of backstory on the characters but it still had the shock factor that Karin always delivers. You won't be disappointed.

One never goes wrong in selecting a novel...

...by Karin Slaughter. She is a master of the crime suspense thriller genre. Indelible is the 4th novel in the 7 novel Grant County/Sara Linton series. (I listened to it almost 2 years ago before I started writing routine reviews.) Slaughter's novels are as much about her wonderful characters as about her excellent plots. This book is about a hostage situation terribly gone wrong resulting in a shooting and death of a character. The characters here are medical examiner Sara Linton, her on again/off again husband and sheriff Jeffrey Tolliver, Tolliver's chief deputy Frank Wallace, and the perpetually bad girl deputy Lena Adams. Kathleen Early narrates superbly as usual. I STRONG RECOMMEND Indelible and every other Karin Slaughter novel.
