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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Can't get enough of Grant County!!!

I always get swept up in Slaughter's books and the world she created in Grant County. The characters you love, laugh and cry with. I really can't get enough of her books.

Could not stop listening!!!!!!!

I was unsure of if I was going to like it in the first few chapters, but then I could NOT stop after that. Literally 7 hours in one day!! I am a big fan of Karen Slaughter and all of her series, but this book rates as one of my favorite yet. Plus being from Texas I love the “southern setting.” Well worth the credit.

Karin Slaughter always entertains

Maybe not my favorite story by Karin Slaughter, but still an enjoyable “read”. Kathleen Early does a great job with the narration, as always. She is Sara Linton and Jeffrey Tolliver and Lena Adams and all the other Grant County characters. So glad she narrates them all.

Check out Indelible or any of the other Karin Slaughter titles and you won’t be disappointed.
