Overview

The Profiler - Book One in the Munro Family Series by Chris Taylor

A psychopathic killer is stalking the women of Sydney . . .
Federal Agent Clayton Munro, a criminal profiler with the Australian Federal Police (AFP), has been called upon to assist in hunting down a vicious murderer who is intent upon carving up his victims while they’re still alive. Guilt-stricken over his wife’s suicide, Clayton’s forced to set aside his personal issues in order to focus on the case.
Detective Ellie Cooper is also no stranger to heartache. Pregnant and abandoned at the altar by a fiancé intent on pursuing a career with the AFP, her opinion of the elite body of officers is anything but favorable. Angered when her boss orders her to partner with the Fed, she’s determined not to cut him any slack.
But women are dying on the streets of western Sydney and the pressure is mounting to find the person responsible.
Will Clayton and Ellie be able to put aside their animosity and work together to catch a killer before it’s too late? And what about the special fascination the killer seems to have with Ellie . . .

Im glad I didnt read the other reviews before I dowoaded this and read it. I thought it was a wonderful story of two people dealing with a whole lot of grief - they were beautifully flawed and very relatable. I enjoyed the mystery very much - thought I knew who it was a few times but I was on pins and needles as I read it. There is one sex scene but I found it appropriate and tastefully done. Really enjoyed this read. :)

Why is it that 90% of the time that i start to read a mystery that it turns intl a romance book! If i enjoyed romance stories i would have bought a romance book. Such a waste of money. Would have rated this book with 5 stars if it would have been a mystery story. Great story line without all the sexual parts. Clayton is busy trying to catch a grizzly killer but at the same time gets excited just by lookig at ellie. Same with her. Take it to romance bookd where it belongs

I really enjoyed this mystery murder/romance. Although some of it was predictable it led to more suspense. I loved Ellie and Claytons characters; a great insightful development of their tough exteriors needed by their occupations and their need for tenderness. I enjoyed the setting in Australia. My most favorite part was the mystical communications of the lost loved ones. Written with great sensitivity and knowledge, this author shows a great level of understanding. I will certainly read more ofher work.

I really liked this story. I don't know if anyone will like Ellie, but I could understand where she was coming from. I can't wait to read the rest.

The romance is okay but the detective aspect is really poorly executed. Even someone without knowledge of law enforcement can spot at least one or two glaring inaccuracies. But what really bothered me was that the protagonist, a female cop, became a damsel in distress by blithely disregarding all the signs because the odds were against it, and then proceeded to do everything wrong. Maybe not everyone would know the basics of what to do, but most females learn what things to do and not to do in certain situations. The protagonist did everything you're not supposed to do and the author even said she was left with no choice! Wrong. Such poor decision making went way beyond believability. The decisions made also made the character come across as passive when a cop in danger would be agressive, even if it was all bravado. Beyond that too many things were related to be credible and despite major issues the male and female protagonists fell in together too easily. I finished the book because I got far enough I didn't want to leave it unfinished but I was wishing the main character had would die just to lend some credibility. Instead the man came to the rescue of the too-stupid-to-live heroine thanks to machinery working in a way it shouldn't in real life. Certainly not without killing the hero if a safety feature had exiles or been tampered with. Tune writing quality itself isn't too bad but the content goes past any allowances or pluses to make this book completeky unacceptable.

This story keeps you on your toes guessing "who's next?" and "why?". I you are like me you catch on quickly and figure out what the cops dont. Which makes you want to read it until they solve the case. There's a sex scene and tough love involved. Hope you enjoy it as much as i did! Pages: 261 -CID XD

I thought that the story was an excellent combination of supsense/mystery and romance. Ellie and Clayton are truly well constructed characters that i did love. Though there was a lot of times that the book delved a little much into the romance part of the genre i got overit and realizd that the mixture was an intelligent idea...it gives another persona to the chacters. If it had just been about the murder investigation the humain rt of the characters would havebeen lost on the readers andthey wpuld have been stiff and tuthfully...cops. it was a good book andi did enjpy it. I just hope that the remnder of the munroe series isnt thr same thn itd gt boring.

This is not a mystery. It is an inane romance. AD

Good story but I figured it out early. The thing that was out of sync w/the rest of the writing was the language describng the sexual parts. It was SO coarse compared to the rest of the writimg and the 2 primary characters. No language like that and them POW!! All of a sudden, it's like a 2nd class "Romance". Otherwise a good read.

Starts off ok, then goes off into romance land. I skipped a lot of pages trying to stick with the plot, but gave up reading all together. Series mystery and/or thriller writers have nothing to fear.

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 hate romance novels and this, which sounds like a Suspense Thriller, turned out to be a romance novel. Hated it.

The profiler didn't really do any profiling. I had the book figured out before i reached the middle of the book. The beginning and middle repeat alot of case details. Alot of book space was the romance which got detailed at one point. With all that said, the middle and ending was fantastic. Why a seasoned cop wouldn't look at an id first before jumping right into the fire is beyond me. Perhaps i've seen to many movies and books in my lifetime. This is one of those books that leaves me wanting to meet the person who wrote it. I will say this, it would make a fantastic movie. Add a few details here and there, tweek the beginning. Wow... :-)
