Laura Griffin. Pocket Star, $7.99 mass market (400p) ISBN 978-1-4516-1737-5
Griffin’s winning fifth Tracers forensic romance (after Snapped) cranks up the pace. Special agent Mark Wolfe, an accomplished profiler for the FBI, has been hunting the serial killer called the Death Raven since 2000. When the murder of a young girl hits his radar, he enlists the help of police detective Allison Doyle. She’s technically not on the case and the police aren’t receptive to FBI interference, but she trusts Mark’s belief that the murder is linked to the Death Raven. Scientists at the famous Delphi Center, a cutting-edge forensic research facility, help Mark and Allison stop a madman before he strikes again. The pace is wickedly fast and the story is tight and compelling, diminished only by cookie-cutter chemistry between Mark and Allison. Griffin excels at detailing the mystery and the chase, and forensic science junkies will love the in-depth look at intricate technology. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. (May)
