Indelible: not able to be forgotten or removed.

I'm still reeling from all the twists and turns in this book! I'm such an action junkie and Slaughter really delivers as she tells Jeffrey and Sarah's story in a series of flashbacks during a dangerous hostage situation. I've often wondered what made Jeffrey the man we see today. He's been a bit of a mystery until now. Seeing his background, I'm amazed that he was able to rise above it and become the guy he is. Yes, he's still flawed and I know a lot of us despise the cheating aspect that occurred before the first book, but it does help me understand him a little more. I have to agree with the others that don't care for Lena. She's still abrasive to me and as long as she's letting Ethan treat her like garbage, I'll have a hard time liking for her. Another fantastic thriller! I'm really looking forward to wrapping this series up and starting the Will Trent series! ( )

This book was mostly about the backstory of Sara and Jeffery's past. Each book read makes you want to read the next one to find out what is going to happen to each of these characters. Karin Slaughter definitely can tell a good story. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. It went back and showed us things that happened in the early stages of Sara and Jeffrey's relationship. They are one of my favorite literary couples, because they are like the rest of us. They are both so afraid of getting hurt, that they hurt each other without even trying. But you just know they love each other beyond reason, and they belong together. I'm kind of iffy on Lena at the moment. In a way, I feel sorry for her, and all she's been through, but at the same time, I just want her to pull herself up by the bootstraps, get away from that loser Ethan, and be the bad-ass cop we all know she can be. She's beginning to go that way by the end of this book, but she is still irritating as heck.

This book is the fourth of the Grant County series, and I really recommend they be read in order. This one is different from the others, however, in that the story is split between a time early in Sara and Jeffrey's relationship and the present. A pair of young armed gunmen take over the police station, killing or injuring most of the officers. Were they looking for Jeffrey, and if so why? The characterizations remain true and the story riveting. I've enjoyed all four Grant County stories by Slaughter.

This was, like, half bottle episode, half clipshow. But I liked it. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060567112, Mass Market Paperback)

Medical examiner Sara Linton and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver make their fourth appearance in this riveting new back-and-forth thriller that grounds a brutal attack by two young men on the Grant County, Georgia police department in a twelve-year-old Alabama murder case that occurred while Sara and Jeffrey were just beginning their tumultuous romance. En route to a beach vacation shortly after they meet, the couple takes a detour to the small town where Jeffrey grew up and began his law enforcement career. But their carefree holiday is interrupted when his best friend from childhood, a fellow cop, is charged with murder after killing a man who broke into his house. Despite his subsequent confession, Jeffrey believes there’s more to the story than Robert is telling him, and when the skeleton of a young woman with whom both Robert and Tolliver were once involved is discovered in a secret cave only they knew about, and Robert admits to her murder too, Tolliver must again confront a past he thought he had long since put behind him.

Slaughter unravels a convoluted story deftly and smoothly as the action moves between those long-ago events and the siege of the police station by two young men who are determined to make Jeffrey pay for a crime they believe he committed. Threatening to kill whoever stands between them and their target--including eight children on a school field trip at the station house when the bloody siege begins--they execute a deputy they mistakenly believe is Tolliver. Skillfully blending past and present events and illuminating the equally convoluted relationship between Sara and Jeffrey (who have married and divorced in the intervening years) without interrupting the breathtaking pace of the action or dropping a beat, Slaughter takes this series to a new level of excellence. --Jane Adams
