TRACING KILLERS IS MIA VOSS’S BUSINESS. AND HER WORK JUST GOT PERSONAL.
At first, Mia Voss thinks it’s just bad luck when her already lousy day ends with a carjacking, but what seems like a random incident is followed by another sinister episode. A DNA expert, Mia has made it her mission to put away vicious criminals. Suddenly, she’s become the target of one. And the only way to protect the people she loves most is to deliberately destroy her reputation and risk letting a killer walk free.
Once, Mia trusted Detective Ric Santos, but that was before Ric let his turbulent past ruin his chances with Mia, the sexiest, most intriguing woman he’s ever met. But he can tell when she’s lying—and when she’s scared. The key to catching a sadistic madman lies within a long-buried cold case that has haunted Mia for years. Only she can uncover the truth, but first, Ric will have to get her to entrust him with her secrets . . . and her life.
Mia Voss, a DNA tracer for the Delphi Center, a prestigious private forensics laboratory, is endangered at every turn of Griffin's high-octane third Tracers novel (after July 2010's Unspeakable). After Mia narrowly survives a carjacking, her nephew's life is threatened, and several attempts are made on her life. Detective Ric Santos is investigating a few brutal sexual homicides and is determined to protect Mia at any cost. When Mia discovers a link between Ric's current cases and a cold case from six years before, it jeopardizes her life and her career and strains their already tenuous romantic relationship. The science is fascinating, the sex is sizzling, and the story is top-notch, making this clever, breakneck tale hard to put down.
