Laura Griffin: Twisted

I’m thrilled to announce the release of TWISTED! It is the fifth book in my Tracers series, which focuses on an elite team of forensic scientists who help homicide cops and cold case detectives solve the most unsolvable crimes.

TWISTED is the story of detective Allison Doyle, who is brand-new to the job when she gets the case that will make her career… if it doesn’t get her killed first. And as if Allison doesn’t have enough to handle, she finds herself falling for the FBI agent who arrives in town to help with the investigation.

Here is a glimpse of TWISTED:

Motive, opportunity, and no alibi—it seems close to a slam-dunk. But while rookie detective Allison Doyle’s department has ID’d a suspect in a young woman’s vicious murder, she is uneasy. Then legendary FBI profiler Mark Wolfe shows up with a startling theory: if he’s right, the real murderer is an elusive psychopath just days away from another kill.

Using Allison’s contacts at the Delphi Center crime lab, Wolfe is finally in striking distance of the monster he’s pursued for ten years. Except that as they work together, Wolfe finds the ambitious, stubborn woman a tempting distraction. And with this brutal predator, every thread of evidence can make the difference between being the hunter . . . and the prey.

As I reader, I know it’s not fun to jump into a series and feel lost, so I wrote each Tracers story with a stand-alone mystery plot. Also, each story focuses on a different romantic couple. So feel free to dive right into the series!

I’ve been so happy with early reviews for TWISTED, including a Top Pick from RT Book Reviews.

I’m giving away a signed copy of TWISTED. Comment here for a chance to win!

***Laura's winner is Dina!  Dina, please email me at with your mailing info.  Thank you!***

I'm ready for a good suspense story & this look like it will fit the bill. I'm wondering how close the books in the series tie together or can they easily be read on their own?

I read so many great reviews about Twisted on Goodreads. I'd love it when one of them said "Her (the author) romantic suspense stories are a little heavier on the suspense side..."

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against romance in my book but too often, it's just too much! Sometimes it makes me a little uneasy LOL!! Really glad that Laura Griffin books explore more about the suspense side.

I'm currently reading Unstoppable and really enjoy it. Can't wait to get my hands on Twisted!! :D

Like the excerpt (I didn't need to read about the pizza at the beginning, now I'm craving it). Sounds like Allison is going to be a strong heroine and an equal partner with Mark. I dislike some rom. suspense where the "strong" law enforcement female is relegated to being the guy's sidekick.
