From the Publisher:
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.
Laura Griffin has done it again in her third Tracers series book Unforgivable. Griffin has successfully written a series of brilliant stories based on a group referred to as Tracers, a specialized and eclectic group of Forensic experts. Unforgivable reads as a stand alone novel, yet the series is so wonderful that in my earlier reviews of Untraceable and Unspeakable I highly recommended them and still do. Griffin has a wonderful writing style in which she combines the genre of romance along with high tech forensics along with an intriguing suspense that captures the reader’s attention and does not let go. Fast paced, intense, and rich in detail and fabulous characters, Unforgivable does not disappoint. Griffin will take the reader on a wild ride, this time her main focus is on the characters of Mia and Ric, one a DNA expert, the other a detective, both attracted to each other. But is there time for romance while being chased and while pursuing a killer? Emotionally charged, highly suspenseful with enough plot twists, secrets and romance to keep the reader thoroughly engaged until the last word has been read, the worst part is waiting for the next book in the Tracers series. I highly recommend Unforgivable to any reader who enjoys well-written suspense.
