Overview

Indelible by Karin Slaughter

Sometimes a past comes back to kill . . .

Two armed men enter the police station in tiny Heartsdale, Georgia, and open fire. When the shooting stops, an officer is dead, Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver is seriously wounded, and the survivors—including a class of grade-school children and medical examiner Sara Linton—are held hostage. In a tense standoff that could erupt at any moment into more bloodletting—with her ex-husband on the threshold of death—Sara must search for answers and an escape in the memories of a time at the start of their relationship when another brutal, shocking crime shattered their small-town world. Because the sins of the past have caught up with Sara and Jeffrey . . . with a vengeance.

I started reading Karin Slaughter's themed books because I liked the characters of Dr. Sara Linton and Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver. I like to buy 2 or 3 books from a series so that I have the next one ready when I finish the first one. I do this because I can't wait to read on and see what is going on with my characters. Karin Slaughter writes in a fashion that makes easy reading but always keeps your interest. I especially enjoyed Indelible as it touches on the minor characters also. I highly recommend you start reading the Grant County series from the first book to the most recent. I guarantee you will enjoy them.

I have just read all of Karin Slaughters books and have loved all but this one.She is an excellent writer with characters you take turns really liking and not liking them at all. The brutal xplicit sex scenes have been necessary to he plot in previous books How ever in Indelible. I had the feeling that the sex scene between Lucy and Jeffrey in the truck in this book was for pornographic value only and added nothing to the story.

Another over-the-top, ridiculous story from a vastly overrated author. In every Slaughter book a homosexual is either (a) the bad guy (b) murdered. And *every* major female character has been raped. You can almost imagine the author rewriting scenes to make them more, more, MORE shocking. I found the story absurd and way too long. In flashback, Jeffrey hates his hometown, never goes there, yet swerves there on whim on a so-called Florida vacation with Sarah. In real time, JUST at the moment that a shootout of this hicksville, no-wheres police station is about to go down, Sarah happens to be there. Adding to the 'drama,' a bunch of 7-yr olds are getting a tour. Why not throw in a grandmother to get shot...? Oh, wait -- she did. These characters are the most unlikeable collection assembled in a series that I know of. Low-class in their heart of hearts. If you're into debasement, this is the book for you. If you're into an intelligent thriller, keep moving.

Couldn't get into this book as much of it seemed contrived. Taking a side trip to Alabama to stay overnight with an alcoholic mother instead of going to the beach doesn't make sense.

I recieved this book. After reading about 15 pages of it, i found myself bored, and not interested in the simple and uneventfull. If you are interested in boring dull books, i would recomend it to you. But if you like something that is a bit mor upbeat and more fascinating i wouldnt suggest reading it

It was a great scenario with the acute development of the hostage situation early on. If the objective of going back in time to tell prior stories is to keep the readers turning the pages then this tactic is simply annoying. What went on in the past is a stretch to what is happening now. The way the author gets us back is even more unreal. Jeffrey, one of the protagonist, has repeatedly mentioned how he hates the town, how much he 's ashamed of it, then it makes no sense at all to go back out of the blue. A huge problem there as to the approach of writing about the past. Additionally, there is nothing likable about the guy. He's a player. And for Sara to fall for him only serves to further cement the common belief or myth that women like bad boys. Keeping in mind, she's a physician. What does she see in him? Aside from the great sex, nothing. Then there is not much to explain their divorce. Whatever that conflict was, at the end, we are to simply believe they are back together again. That's just not real! The storyline isn't very original. Similar plots and themes have been employed by other authors such Richard North Patterson with much more intensity and believable writing. Nonetheless, it was an ok read. Just not as good as others.

At first the novel had too much going on at one time but once you get past the back and forth it gets better.
