Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Brant's careful research leads to believable twists and turns in her sixth Mindhunters romantic FBI procedural. When a Supreme Court justice is gunned down, his widow asks former FBI agent Adam Raiker, owner of Raiker Forensics, to serve on the special investigative task force with Jaid Marlow, whom Adam was involved with eight years earlier. A note from the killer links the judge's murder to another unsolved case, but as Adam and Jaid connect the dots, the killer takes aim at Adam. The well-paced thriller reveals multiple victims and minor conspirators but cleverly conceals the mastermind's identity, and Adam and Jaid slowly move past regrets and mistrust to rebuild their relationship. Abundant subplots and characters from earlier volumes sometimes confuse the reader, but Brant does a credible job of tying all the loose ends together. (Aug.)

    Not my favorite book in this series

    I was really looking forward to this book since it covers one of the most fascinating characters - Adam Raiker. But I was disappointed because it seems to be lacking the suspense, the thrill of the mystery, and the in depth coverage of Adam's character. It's still a good book and I love Kylie Brant.

    a terrific thriller

    The assassin kills high profile targets in the DC area with the latest execution being Supreme Court Justice Byron Reinbeck; the killer leaves behind a calling card, one of the Deadly Sins and provides links to former FBI Agent Adam Raiker. The late Judge's widow of twenty-five years Mary Jo asks Adam of Raiker Forensics to join the special task force, which he does.

    Also on the special investigative unit is Adam's ex lover FBI agent Jaid Marlowe. Adam takes pride in keeping emotional baggage and bias out of the inquiries but with Jaid at his side his cold resolve is shattered by desire. She has a similar problem as her assignment is to watch Adam who is becoming the prime suspect.

    This exhilarating Mindhunter romantic suspense (see Deadly Intent and Deadly Dreams) is a terrific thriller that contains too many subplots to keep track of but as they merge together into a strong entry fans will marvel at Kylie Brant's delightful juggling. Adam and Jaid are a wonderful second chance couple, but neither lose sight of taking down the brilliant mastermind behind the killings. Filled with twists, Deadly Sins is a superb cat and mouse police procedural.

    Deadly Sins - Dead On!

    When I received the review request for Deadly Sins I was thrilled. Romantic Suspense was my "first love" of reading when I was a kid. So it seemed fitting that I would wrap myself around this story.

    To put it simply - AMAZING!! Truly AMAZING! Deadly Sins is book 6 in the The Mindhunter Series, but that didn't matter. It read well as a stand alone novel. There were a few points in the plot where I wondered if more details were available in previous books, but it was mainly my curiosity rather than a flaw in the story.

    The main characters, Jaid and Adam, worked well together in this story and felt like a complete role-reversal from what you would normally see in romantic suspense novels. Jaid was the FBI agent and Adam was the ex-FBI agent who was damaged. Both physically and emotionally. Typically it's the female who's still dealing with emotional issues and I love how Brant made Jaid stand out from the crowd. She strong, capable and able to hold her own. Don't get me wrong - Adam is no wimp! Even with his physical injuries, he still stands out as a man to be reckoned with.

    Deadly Sins has an intricately woven plot that really keeps you guessing. Secondary characters aren't thrown into the story hap hazardously; they actually add strong richness to the story line and help to keep it moving quickly.

    I was sad to see that Deadly Sins is the conclusion to The Mindhunter series. I didn't get that from the book, but only found out while preparing to write my review. Personally, I loathe starting a series at the end. It can be a total buzzkill. BUT Deadly Sins was so good, packed with action, suspense, grisly murders (and the like) -- I'm going to have to pick up Waking Nightmare, Book 1. Each book in the series focus' on a character introduced in Deadly Sins. I need the WHOLE story!

    Another Good Installment in the Mindhunters...

    While it wasn't my favorite in the series, I still enjoyed the latest Mindhunters. Glad to see that the author is still including glimpses of previous leads. Only complaint is that I had hoped to get more information on Adam. However, should have been expected after him being built as a very private man who looks forward instead of back. Hope there will be more to come in this series...
