Profiler, the first book I read of Chris Taylor. I fell in love with Clayton and Ellie at the beginning of the book. I was also impressed with the characters aboriginal heritage. How Chris twist romance and suspense throughout the book. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Australian romantic suspense with a twist.
I was hoping for a mystery and instead get a very predictable love story.The title to me implied a suspense story not a love story, so That is why the low rating.
Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews by Gemini The Profiler was a very good book. It kept my attention throughout. There were a lot of unexpected twists and turns that drove the story along. Although there was a romantic element to the book, it definitely played a backseat to the mystery and suspense. Oh, and there was a surprising amount of murder, pain and suffering that made the book very serious. This story is based in Sydney, Australia. The Profiler is about the search for a sadistic serial killer that has been mutilating young women. When the police department gets desperate, they call in Australian Federal Police profiler Clayton Munro. He gets partnered with lead Police Detective Ellie Cooper. Both Clayton and Ellie have suffered major losses in their lives and have yet to heal from those losses. More importantly, they have not given themselves an opportunity to be happy again. The fact that a murder investigation brings them together creates an interesting dynamic between them. The suspense regarding their relationship is just as compelling as the suspense regarding the murderer that they are trying to find. As more information about the killer’s past is revealed, you understand what drove him to his sickness. The suspense regarding his identity is drawn out throughout most of the book. When everything is revealed, you will be shocked. In addition, the relationship that develops between Clayton and Ellie will be just as intriguing. They have a very therapeutic effect on each other that goes beyond a simple romance. There is so much more to be said about this book but it would ruin it for you. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. Source: Author Rating: 4.5 Stars
This is a poor mystery book because very little of the content is devoted to the mystery itself. There are some good kernels for a mystery but they aren't developed. There is no suspense in either the story or in the ending. With skillful editing this might make a good short short mystery story but this isn't it The Profiler and the associated series are marketed as mystery and suspense but The Profiler, at least, would be more accurately termed a romance. As it is the romance is a tedious interruption. The book is not highly erotic and would probably be enjoyable for readers of the romance genre.nse
