ALEX LOVELL MAKES PEOPLE DISAPPEAR. TURNS OUT, SHE’S NOT THE ONLY ONE.
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.
As far as homicide cop Nathan Deveraux is concerned, no body means no case. But as much as he wants to believe that Alex’s hunch about Melanie’s murder is wrong, his instincts — and their visceral attraction — 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 the truth puts Alex in danger of being the next to disappear….
Why it Kicks Ass… by Gemma
Untraceable is the first in a series of eight works of romantic suspense, the genre I love to read when I’m reading for pleasure. I first discovered this series during a trip to the library, which is where I like to find new authors. Untraceable was the first Laura Griffin book I read, but not the last. In fact, on my last vacation, I read four of her books while I lazed on the beach. Ah, paradise in so many ways.
Untraceable introduces a private crime lab, The Delphi Center, which is chock full to the rafters with smart, confident kickass women. And let’s not forget about the alpha males they end up teamed with to solve a mystery. Griffin’s heroes are flawed, human and ultimately, believable. They are also lickable, but we won’t get into that. The stories revolve around crime committed in the Hill Country of Texas (Austin and the surrounding area). You not only get a glimpse of police procedural, CSI types of action but there is always a strong love story that leads to a happy ending.
I love that you don’t have to read the books in a sequential order, but I know you are going to want to. The writing is taut, the action constant, the romance key and the stories are always compelling.
