With a “fast pace, tight plotting, terrific mystery, sharp dialogue, [and] fabulous characters” (Allison Brennan, New York Times bestselling author), this white-knuckled thrill ride follows an expert who helps her clients “disappear”—until she finds herself in the middle of a homicide investigation as the next victim.
Private investigator Alexandra Lovell uses computer skills and cunning to help clients drop off the radar and begin new lives in safety. Melanie Bess, desperate to escape her abusive cop husband, was one of those clients. But when Melanie vanishes for real, Alex fears the worst, and sets out to discover what happened.
Using every resource she can get her hands on—including an elite team of forensic scientists known as the Tracers, and a jaded, sexy Austin PD detective—Alex embarks on a mission to uncover the truth. But as far as homicide cop Nathan Deveraux is concerned, no body means no case. Yet his instincts—and his visceral attraction to Alex—won’t let him walk away.
As a grim picture of what really happened begins to emerge, Nathan realizes this investigation runs deeper than they could ever have guessed. And each step nearer to the truth puts Alex in danger of being the next to disappear.
Taut drama and constant action surge through the engrossing first book in Griffin's Tracers series. Austin PI Alex Lovell helps people escape their lives and start fresh. She helped Melanie Bess get away from her abusive police officer husband, Craig Coghan, but Melanie didn't follow the rules, and now she has truly disappeared. Alex believes Melanie is dead and Craig's to blame, so she enlists the help of sexy, skeptical police detective Nathan Devereaux and "tracer" Mia Voss of the high-tech Delphi Center. When Alex uncovers more of Craig's secrets, she finds herself both fighting her attraction to Nathan and fighting for her life. Alex is fully realized, flawed yet admirable, and Griffin (Thread of Fear) keeps the suspense high and the pace quick. A perfect combination of forensic science, mystery, romance and action make this series one to watch.
One of my favorite by this author. I've read it quite a few times. Love the way it's written and the story.
