In the ninth romantic suspense novel in the New York Times bestselling Tracers series, author Laura Griffin brings back her elite cadre of forensic experts as they hunt down the most brutal serial killer yet.

Despite all her digging, Tara knows very little about Liam when she shows up at his sprawling Texas compound, which serves as headquarters for Wolfe Security, and she’s surprised by her intense physical reaction to him.

As she and Liam grow closer, Tara finds herself depending on his skills and expertise to help her track a killer. But when another body turns up, Tara must decide if she can trust the man who’s quickly stealing her heart.

Griffin writes another fast paced heart stopping read that captures your attention to the very last page! I loved this book!

One thing I have loved about Griffins books is the writing and the details she brings to each and every story. Each and every detail is so descriptive that I could picture the scenery and the characters perfectly.

Once I started this I seriously couldn't put it down. Tara and Liam were intriguing characters that really made this story. With Tara being an FBI agent and Liam former military these two made a great time and had wonderful chemistry.

Griffin wrote the right amount of suspense that kept me begging for more and the right amount of romance that kept it interesting and not overly done.

I loved that Tara and Liam each had their own voice during this book. Getting inside their heads for what they were thinking and feeling made the story for me. Also I really liked MJ and Jeremy. I was hoping they would get together. They just had this connection between them that began to draw me in. I liked these two so much I think they should get their own book.

The ending was just Wow and I would have never guessed who the killer was. With Tara and Liam their relationship wasn't rushed and it took some time for Tara to trust Liam. Right away I could see these two together kicking ass and taking names.

This is a fast paced read that will keep your heart pounding and keep you guessing who the killer is. Shadow Fall is a great addition to this additive series! Honestly I can't wait to see what Griffin has in store in the future. If all her books are like this they are a MUST to read!

Tara looked out the window again and realized her pulse was still thrumming. He unnerved her. It wasn’t just his size, it was his attitude. Maybe she was self-conscious because he’d caught her off guard. She was definitely embarrassed that she’d pulled her weapon on him.

She adjusted the vent and got a waft of hot air. His attitude bothered her, but she liked his truck. It smelled like leather and earth and felt deliciously warm. She forced herself to ignore the flutter of nerves generated by being alone in the dark with him. The nerves weren’t from fear but something else. And she wondered which was worse, being afraid of a man she was investigating or being attracted to him?

“You shouldn’t come out here alone.”

She looked at him. “Why not?”

“We’ve got more than a few meth heads around here. You don’t want to walk up on something, not without backup.”

She watched his face in the dimness, uneasy with the protective tone of his voice.

“We confirmed the ID today,” she said.

“I know.”

That ticked her off.

“Won’t be long till the media has it,” he added.

“Where are you getting your information?”

He didn’t answer.

“And the other day,” she said, “how’d you know we were here, me and M.J.? Are you having us tailed?”

Even if he was, he’d probably never admit it. But she at least needed to ask and get his reaction. Shadowing investigators could definitely be considered suspicious behavior.

Although she had to be honest with herself. She didn’t consider him a real suspect. Despite his links to the victim, she simply didn’t feel it.

“I’m guessing you filmed us approaching your property and ran my plate,” she said.

The corner of his mouth lifted. “Nothing that cloak-and- dagger.” He glanced at her. “I’m friends with Crystal.”

“Who’s Crystal?”

“She waited on you at the Waffle Stop. Bright red hair, eyebrow ring.”

She turned to face the window. “Small-town grapevine. And here I’ve been all impressed with your spying abilities.”

“You should be.” He pulled up to her Explorer and parked. “We’re the best there is.”

She looked at him in the darkness, so confident it bordered on arrogance. And the crazy thing was she believed him. She bought into it completely—he was that good.

His eyes locked on hers, and the air between them felt charged with electricity. His gaze dropped to her mouth, and her heart skittered. Was he going to kiss her? He eased closer, watching her, making her heart pound.
