For months I’ve been counting the days, and it’s hard for me to believe it’s finally here! Today is pub day for my new book, UNFORGIVABLE.
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. 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.
I’ve been thrilled with the reviews for the book, including this one from Publishers Weekly:
“The science is fascinating, the sex is sizzling, and the story is top-notch, making this clever, breakneck tale hard to put down.”
And from RT Book Reviews:
“Strong characters, a tight and complex mystery plot and nonstop action make Unforgivable a must read.”
I’ve been so excited about the Tracers series, and I’m happy to say I’ll be doing at least three more books, beginning in 2011. And for those of you unfamiliar with the series, it focuses on a high-tech crime lab, where forensic experts known as Tracers work with homicide cops and cold case detectives to solve the very toughest crimes.
Readers often ask me if it’s necessary to read the Tracers books in order, and I tell them not to worry about it. The characters overlap from story to story, but each suspense plot stands on its own, so feel free to dive right in! I write the series this way because, as a reader, I’ve often “discovered” a new author by picking up a book in the middle of a series and felt a bit lost, then had to go back and start at the beginning.
I hope you will like UNFORGIVABLE! Writing it was an emotional rollercoaster for me and I’m so happy to finally get to the fun part: sharing the story with readers.
