Karin Slaughters reputation grows apace, and Indelible sports all the customary fingerprints. Over the space of a handful of novels, the author has built a reputation as one of the key crime novelists at work today. What's her secret? In some ways, Slaughters work is a refining of the Southern Gothic idiom that has been the bedrock of so much atmospheric work in the past, but Slaughters way with the form is entirely her own, and despite the lashings of atmosphere, she never forgets that a crime novelist has to be rigorous in the arena of plotting--and thats her strongest suit.
Medical examiner Sara Linton and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver take a trip from the pressures of Heartsdale (in the hope of straightening out their relationship), but a detour to Jeffreys hometown lands them in the most difficult case of their career.
Readers are probably growing weary of the inevitable comparison novels like Slaughters draw with those of Thomas Harris--and rightly so. But the trouble is, such comparisons are right on the nail for Slaughter. She may not quite have the older writer's authority, but she is undoubtedly skilled at creating a delicious, unsettling tension in the reader--as is very much the case in Indelible. And shes careful, too, to ensure that the relationship between Sara Linton and Jeffrey Tolliver isnt sidelined by the accelerating tension--that relationship is moved on considerably here. The fulsome praise on the jacket from such fellow scribes as John Connolly and Michael Connelly is more than professional courtesy here--theyre fully justified by the work on offer.--Barry Forshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Lauded on two continents as the most significant new voice in American crime fiction."--Daily Telegraph (Sydney, Australia)
"Skillfully told in both the then and the now, and quite scary on both fronts."--New York Daily News
"Harrowing...Compelling...Solidly and uniquely plotted...Realistic and believable...Indelible again proves the superb indelible mark Slaughte is making on mystery fiction."--Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Well-crafted...Slaughter skillfully maintains the tension in the parallel stories."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"[Slaughter] has a bighearted way...and a knack for grisly detail."--Entertainment Weekly
"Gripping...complex characters with credible relationships...keep[s] readers hooked right up to the end."--Publishers Weekly

"A fearless writer. One of the boldest thriller writers working today."--Tess Gerritsen

Another great read from Karin Slaughter, this could be my favourite yet, I liked the way she delved in to the past of Jeffrey for this one and took it back to small town America. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Mathias
