In CJ Lyons' Snake Skin, we meet Supervisory Special Agent Lucia Guardino who is part of the FBI's Sexual Assault Enforcement squad that handles crimes against children. Lucy has just transferred to Pittsburg, Pa. - with her husband, Nick, and daughter, Megan - to assume the lead of her new unit. Lucy is an amazingly strong woman. In addition to balancing relationships with her husband and her daughter, she's leading her squad in the apprehension of child predators. They've just wrapped up a case when another child goes missing. It's a race against time. Lucy must coordinate this case across multiple jurisdictions and is up against an extremely cunning predator. Snake Skin grabbed me right at the beginning and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. It is an edgy thriller, full of suspense with lots of twists and turns. At various times I was cringing or gasping and always rooting for Lucy and her team. I loved the detail in this story and the strength and depth of the characters. In addition to Snake Skin, I've read four other CJ Lyons novels and recommend all of them. If you love thrillers, you too will become a CJ Lyons fan! I received this novel from the author for the purpose of providing a review.

CJ Lyons knack for creating strong female characters is amazing. Following around Agent Guardino during her race to save a victim is intense and suspensful. Itwas hard to put down! I would LOVE to see more of Agent Guardino!

This was a really good book to read. Although this book is 900+ pages, it held my interest throughout the whole book. I am looking forward to reading more C.J. Lyons books.

This is another great book by Ms. Lyons that keeps you on the edge of your seat through the entire book. Agent Guardino is a wonderfully strong character in both her business and family life. I would definitely recommend this book! A great read!!!

Once again, a CJ Lyons book I could not put down. I read it in one sitting and it was at once terrifying, thrilling, and a look into what is normal in the lives of FBI agents. It is also a look into the life of the girl that FBI Agent Lucy Guardino is trying to find and of the choice she faces when confronting the man who has kidnapped the girl. There are scenes featuring snakes that are not recommended for those who may have issues with snakes (even reading about them), they fit the story and give it an extra oomph. I look forward to reading more of Ms. Lyons' books.

I could hardly put this book down. It makes you stop and think about all that can happen to others and not realize it could happen to any one of us.This is a startling read, and recall the mistakes we make with our children and hope for the best.

This is the first book I've read by this author but it certainly won't be the last. Couldn't put it down. Wonderful characters and intense action from start to finish.

Just discovered C. J. Lyons a couple of weeks ago, and this is my fifth book. I haven't had a disappointing one yet. I read all the Caitlyn Tierney series and enjoyed them thoroughly. She writes a mystery thriller that just never slows down. Her characters are well developed and believable. You get hooked really fast, so excuse me....I need to grab my nook and get the next one in this series.

As always C. j. Lyons delivers another exciting on the edge of your seat thriller. You can 't read it fast enough but are sad when it ends. Please keep them coming because I believe I have become one of your biggest fans!

This book was really intriguing from beginning to end, trying to figure out what the next turn or twist would be. Also, it’s nice to read about a federal agent who is dedicated to their job, but still has a functional family life.

I really enjoyed 98% of the book. A few minor things could have been left out and the book would not miss them. Overall a good read. I tend to read it all at once or give up on a bad book. I did not put it down, reading and enjoying the book. I could visualize this as if I was watching a movie. Either I have a good imagination or it was well written. You judge and read it for yourselves.

...lots of them, Evidently put there to drive up the rating (and some of them are pretty weird). Still, the book is an okay read--not fabulous, but entertaining..
