I first discovered Ms Brant's books with her wonderful Mindhunter series - a great blend of forensic procedural, suspense and romance. Then it all went quiet for a while . . . however, I was thrilled to discover the reason for this was that Ms Brant had decided to dip her toes into the self publishing world with her next novel - Chasing Evil, the first in the Circle of Evil trilogy. Dr. Sophia Channing is a forensic profiler and has analyzed the most notorious psychopaths in the country. So when bodies start appearing buried on top of recently interred graves, she is invited to join Iowa's DCI task force to hunt the vicious sadist who has tortured and killed six women. DCI Agent Cam Prescott is leading up the case. He and Sophie have worked sporadically together before, but things have changed between them, since they had a fling shortly before we, the reader, meet them . . One of Ms Brant's strengths, and the reason I love her books, is that she writes great suspense. The police procedural is all logical, makes sense, and yet she still manages to stuff a surprise in now and again to keep me on my toes and throw me off the scent! It was also apparent that Ms Brant could explore the genre more freely, without being restricted by parameters set by a publisher. So the way that the story was laid out was different from previous books, as was the pacing. This made a refreshing change if you read a lot of romantic suspense. As this is a trilogy, set over a few weeks, parts of the story continue throughout the three books. Each chapter starts with a flashback to Cam & Sophie's relationship - so by the end of the book we have caught up with where they are now - for me that worked really well. What threw me a little was that at the end of the book we don't have a resolution to Cam & Sophie's relationship - and that was just due to the expectation on my part (and of reading the genre so much) where the main couple usually have their HEA! Having said that, if they had had a HEA it would have been out of place at *that* point in the book. I confess to emailing Ms Brant asking her to throw me some crumbs, and she graciously replied that Cam and Sophie's story would continue through books 2 and 3 with secondary romances as well, which was great to hear as I really enjoyed some of the supporting characters. So a solid and gripping start to a new trilogy and roll on October for book 2!

TERRIFIC START TO A NEW SERIES .............. Dr. Sophia Channing is a forensic profiler on loan to Iowa's DCI task force. Working alongside Agent Cam Prescott, they are looking for a depraved sexual sadist who has already killed six women. Dr. Channing does her job and issues a profile based on the knowledge they have. Unfortunately the killer does not agree with the profile and he sets his eyes on her ..to make her see the error of her ways. When Sophia suddenly vanishes, Cam and his team shift into overdrive to keep her from being the latest victim. The story goes back and forth between present time and some time previous when Sophia and Cam have a brief passionate affair. This is a Romantic Suspense.. about a 50/50 mix. The intimate moments are graphic, but very well done. The characters both come across as very believable. Since this is the first book in a series of three, there is a cliffhanger. Most of this story stops with a satisfactory ending.. with enough to keep you coming back for Book 2 ... TOUCHING EVIL. My thanks to NetGalley / Thomas & Mercer for furnishing a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
