    Good reading here

    Attempting to put her own demons to rest, Jane has made it her life's work to help put away those who prey on the weak. Working as a police sketch artist, she has had incredible results with the victims. Yet, haunted by her own past, she failed once, and that failure let a killer go free. Now, she may have a chance to atone; if she can be persuaded to return to her calling. Despite burnout, she tries again. Working with a handsome fellow officer, she races time to save a child from a monster. .................... *** Romance takes a backseat to procdure in this detailed mystery. Jane presents a fascinating psychological portrait of someone both helped and hindered by her own past. As she faces her family, readers may feel a kinship with the difficulties of relatives. Though lighter in tone than Johansen or Cornwall, readers of those books will find this a welcome addition to their library. ***

    Without a Trace

    Jane Russo has a gift. However, recently, this much-touted gift has seemingly deserted her. A free-lance criminal artist for the FBI and other governmental organizations, Jane has just ended the first month of her six-month sabbatical. Because of her own personal past horror as a young girl, she's developed a block that's preventing her from releasing the identity of a multiple-rapist. Despite the block and despite the sabbatical, Jane is forced to go back on duty when another girl is taken. She's accompanied by a scarred FBI agent, who can take just enough time from the job and his own traumas to consider Jane a fool whose job is a joke. This is an excellent mystery. Jane's emotions are well- written and her dedication to her job is admirable. The fast-paced writing style makes one eager to read Ms. Erickson's other books.

    Without a Trace

    Completely captivating, WITHOUT A TRACE is one of the best books I have read this year. Jane's insecurity in her ability to help the victims of these horrific crimes is heart wrenching, as she struggles with her inner demons to help each witness/victim remember the minutest detail of a memory they just want to erase. Ray, tortured by his own nightmares, is a true doubting Thomas, but is perfectly portrayed as the dark, brooding hero needed for a romantic suspense. Secondary characters round out the story nicely, and Ms. Erickson's creativity allows evil to exude when the murdering rapist plays center stage. Once I picked up WITHOUT A TRACE, I never put it down until the last word was read. Strong, earthy characters, vivid imagery, and a suspense-filled plot, weld together to make WITHOUT A TRACE a top contender for best book of the year, and I am pleased to award it Romance Review Today's Perfect 10.

    Without a Trace

    WITHOUT A TRACE is a remarkably intriguing romantic suspense. The small slices of time spent with the villain keep the suspense building. The segments dealing with the hero's past and the way it ties in with the main story are gratifying. And the secondary mystery about the heroine's attack is well done and provides a satisfactory conclusion.

    For fans of police procedural romances

    In Denver police sketch artist Jane Russo needs to get away from the pressure of failure that could mean the death of an innocent. Her last case has destroyed her psyche as she has failed to obtain a drawing of a serial rapist-killer from the survivors. Jane does not follow the book and is usually able to coax the information so that she can sketch a portrait, but this time she has failed though the culprit has struck several times. FBI Special Agent Caroline Deutch and survivor rights advocate Alan Gallagher pressure Jane to try one more time. The rapist abducted twelve-year old Aspen resident Kirsten Lemke from the Snowmass slopes. Reluctantly, Jane works with skeptic Ray Vanover to save the life of Kirsten and bring a nasty felon to justice. As they struggle with the case and Jane with Aspen being the home of her somewhat estranged family, they fall in love, but the preadolescent's safety comes first. Fans of police procedural romances will enjoy WITHOUT A TRACE, a solid suspense thriller. The story line is action-packed in a low key level as Jane and Ray interview witnesses in an attempt to save a life. The estrangement with her mother seems off kilter especially when Jane is easily coaxed into dinner. Her sister's cavalier attitude towards Jane's work feels too selfish for a mom. Still the investigation is top rate and the romance as good.<P> Harriet Klausner
