In a stifling jail cell in a hardscrabble Georgia town, Detective Lena Adams sits in stubborn silence: bruised, angry, and the only suspect in a horrific murder that left a woman incinerated beyond recognition. A hundred miles away, Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver has gotten a call that his young detective has been arrested. Jeffrey's wife, pediatrician and medical examiner Sara Linton, has little patience for Lena or her dramas. Fighting a heartbreaking malpractice suit, struggling to pick up the pieces of a shattered career, the last thing Sara needs is to see Jeffrey playing Lena's knight in shining armor. Sara cannot guess that within days she herself will be at the center of a bizarre and murderous case. For Lena has fled back to the place where she grew up hard, careening back through the shadows of her past and into a shocking underworld of bigotry and rage. The man who raised her is slowly killing himself with drugs. The man who beguiled and beat her is reaching out from prison. And now only Jeffrey and Sara can free Lena from the web of lies, betrayal, and brutality that has trapped her.… (mere)

Even though I knew what was going to happen (jumping back and forth between Grant County and Will Trent), and some annoying stuff, this was still a great page-turner. There was a constant sense of danger throughout the whole story. ( )

Detectieve Lena Adams keert na jaren terug naar haar geboortedorp en wordt daar geconfronteerd met een explosie van geweld: een meedogenloze moordenaar heeft een jonge vrouw onherkenbaar verbrand. Voor de plaatselijke politie is Lena de enige verdachte. Jeffrey Tolliver en zijn vrouw Sara Linton reizen af naar het plaatsje om Lena's onschuld te bewijzen. Dan wordt een tweede lichaam gevonden en rake Jeffrey en Sara verstrikt in een duistere wereld vol geweld eb rassenhaat. Kunnen zij de waarheid achterhalen voor de moordenaar opnieuw toeslaat?

Detective Lena Adams heeft jarenlang geprobeerd haar gewelddadig verleden te ontvluchten. Maar bij een gedwongen terugkomst in haar geboortedorp wordt ze opnieuw geconfronteerd met een explosie van geweld: een meedogenloze moordenaar heeft een jonge vrouw onherkenbaar verbrand. Voor de plaatselijke politie is Lena de enige verdachte. Jeffrey Tolliver en zijn vrouw Sara Linton reizen af naar het plaatsje om Lena s onschuld te bewijzen. Dan wordt een tweede lichaam gevonden en raken Jeffrey en Sara verstrikt in een duistere wereld vol geweld en rassenhaat. Kunnen zij de waarheid achterhalen voor de moordenaar opnieuw toeslaat?
Onaantastbaar is het zesde deel in de zeer succesvolle Sara Linton-reeks, waarin Karin Slaughter bloedstollende spanning combineert met levensechte personages.

Having read books further along in the series before starting from the beginning, I knew what was going to happen by the end. Didn’t make it any easier. I strive for the tenacity of Lena Adams and the resilience of Sara Linton. ( )

Hmmm. While a gripping book and police drama with characters we've grown to know and to love, I'm beginning to see some not-so-great parallels between Slaughter's stories and Patricia Cornwall's story-telling. This book starts with Sara Linton in court being sued for malpractice by parents of a child she was treating. While the childlessness of both the late boy's parents and Sara and Jeffrey become part of Sara's inner dialogue, the court case does not have any mention again until the end of the book. I saw a similar trend in several of the middle Cornwall series, of a series of events at the beginning being only a lead-in to the book and pretty much superfluous.

Nevertheless, the look at drug addiction in rural Georgia is certainly timely and how it gets started is quite accurate. The devastation to the community and to families is well-written, and it becomes part of Lena's troubled self-assessment. Much of her character is determined by the actions of her uncle and her mother (the former who raised her, the latter whose mysterious death Lena begins to uncover) and in true Karin Slaughter fashion, those inner discussions play a part in the mystery that Jeffrey Tolliver and Sara Linton set out to solve.
