“Indelible” by Kristen Heitzmann

Trevor McDaniel is a former Olympian who risked his life to save a toddler from a mountain lion – and gained an unlikely admirer in the process.  A prodigious artist, Natalie deals with her eidetic mind the best way she knows how – even though it puts her life in danger – and is the toddler’s aunt.  Trevor and Natalie see sparks when thrown together – but will things change when Natalie suddenly is given care of her still-recovering nephew?  When pictures of children in danger from across the nation begin showing up in Trevor’s mailbox – and then mysterious dangers show up in Redford – can police chief Jonah Westfall piece together the connection to Trevor before a child – or someone Trevor loves – ends up dead?

Indelible is a fantastic suspense that explores the mysteries of the mind while surviving real life in the physical world.  Heitzmann draws the reader in and keeps them engaged through an ever-expanding cast of characters, each with a curious role in the plot.  Indelible follows Indivisible, another book set in Redford, but is not a typical sequel.  Both books could be read independently with no problems, but because the character set overlaps, a depth is added to the story that would be difficult to add otherwise.

Heitzmann writes from the perspective of both admirer and Trevor, demon and archangel.  She explores perspective in an interesting way – are things ever what they seem?  Is anyone absolutely anything?  Can people be black and white?  How much of a role do circumstances play in what we become, and how can we overcome them?

I’ve read many of Heitzmann’s other books, and I’ve loved them all.  Indelible did not disappoint.  Once begun, I could not put it down – and so I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next.

Shall we see more of Redford?  I hope so.
