Twisted - Laura Griffin
Rookie detective Allison Doyle only has room in her life for one goal: to prove to everyone that she is every bit as capable as the men in her small-town Texas police department. But when a vicious murder sends shockwaves through her community, Allison finds herself at the epicenter of a bigger challenge than she ever imagined. Legendary FBI profiler Mark Wolfe arrives to consult on the case and puts forth a startling new theory—that the crime is not the handiwork of the police’s prime suspect, but of an elusive psychopath Mark has been hunting for more than a decade.
Teaming up with Mark puts Allison’s professional reputation—and her heart—in jeopardy, but she shoves these risks aside so she can tap into one of the FBI’s best assets. With Mark’s help, as well as the elite group of forensic scientists known as the Tracers, Allison uncovers the killer’s true identity. Or does she? As the net tightens around a psychopath, Allison begins to wonder if she and Mark have trapped a killer or become ensnared themselves….
In My Own Words:
Not many police forces are keen on accepting help from the FBI so when rookie Allison teams up with Mark Wolfe, no one thinks this is the best move for her career. But when Mark tells Allison and the task force his idea that the prime suspect in a recent murder isn't the guy they are looking for, Allison decides to take her own path and follow Mark's lead. Mark has been hunting this killer for years, the last thing he needs is a young rookie cop mucking up his investigation. Soon Mark figures out that Allison is a good person to have on his side and they form an easy relationship. When Allison believes that she knows the bad guy, the heat is on. But who is the one caught, the bad guy or them?
This was not my favorite Tracer book. I didn't feel that the Tracers were very involved. One of the reasons I love the Tracer series is to get to see the inner workings of the Dephi Center, not a whole lot of that. The chemistry between Mark and Allison seemed almost forced. I wish there would have been a little....more.
