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. (Dec.)
