Thread of Fear (Glass Sisters Series #1) by Laura Griffin

Forensic artist Fiona Glass is the best in the business -- which is precisely why she's quitting. Her skill at mining victims' memories to re-create the faces of sadistic criminals has left her haunted and wary, and only Jack Bowman's dogged persistence convinces her to help him. The rugged police chief is hunting a serial killer who's targeting teenage girls. But what seems like a simple assignment is fraught with complications, including a searing attraction to Jack that's tempting Fiona to let her guard down in potentially dangerous ways.

Jack never intended for Fiona to become so deeply involved in the case -- or in his life. But every instinct tells him she's his best hope for finding a psychopath who's lurking in plain sight, growing more ruthless with each passing day. And now that Fiona is right in the killer's crosshairs, the only way to keep her safe is to unravel a small town's darkest secrets, one terrifying thread at a time....

Forensic artist Fiona Glass is very good at what she does and the stress of hearing the victim¿s stories has made her quit the business and focus her talent in her art. But Graingerville police chief Jack Bowman has convinced her to take on one last case. A case that has roots going back 10 years with a personal link back to Jack. Together Fiona and Jack will do their best to hunt a serial killer who's targeting teenage girls. But what seems like a simple assignment is fraught with complications, including a searing attraction to Jack that's tempting Fiona to let her guard down in potentially dangerous ways.

Thread of Fear was a great suspense book and recommended for all suspense fans. The ending was a complete surprise and the book was never predictable. My first love in reading were suspense books but as of late I¿ve read less and less just because the stories have become so predictable but Griffin¿s story has brought me back. The pacing of the story is perfect. Nothing is given away too early and you¿re left anxiously reading the next chapter. The characters seem so real and I was able to connect with them making the story all the more real to me. Thread of Fear is book one in Griffin¿s new Glass sisters series and I am anxiously awaiting book two, Whisper of Warning. In addition I will be going back and reading her earlier books One Last Breath and One Wrong Step.

She is one of the best forensic artists in the country and police from all parts of the nation ask her to talk with witnesses and victims so she can draw a picture of their assailant. Her success rate is phenomenal, but it also takes a toll on her emotionally. Fiona Glass keeps telling herself no more as she cannot cope with how she personalizes each case.------------------ When the FBI talks to her about the abduction of ten year old Shelby with the witness being her six years old brother Colton who refuses to talk to any one, Fiona knows she has no choice but to help. She gets a tremendous sketch of the perpetrator from the frightened child.----------------------- She still reels from internalizing the trauma of that case when Police Chief Jack Bowman asks her to interview a rape torture victim. Reluctantly she agrees. Fiona learns that the trauma happened eleven years ago and the victim was Bowman¿s girlfriend at the time. He explains to the forensic artist that he believes that cold case is related to a recent murder of a girl dumped in a place where her corpse would be found fast. He admits no one else buys his theory. Fiona obtains decent sketches from Jack¿s former girlfriend. When the culprit kidnaps a state senator¿s daughter suddenly everyone from the Feds to the State to the locals dive head first into the investigation. Fiona finds the clues that allows Jack to close in on the killer, but neither realize the perp is targeting her.---------------- Laura Griffin provides a strong suspense thriller with a supporting romantic subplot that enhances the growing tension as Jack worries about the mental state of the woman he loves who risks her sanity and her life to help others. While investigating, the sparks between them is unwanted as one is commitment phobic and the other does not want to get involved. Although forensic experts with emotional issues is not new, THREAD OF FEAR is a crisp police procedural.------------------- Harriet Klausner

Laura Griffin strikes gold with her third book, Thread of Fear. Fiona Glass is a forensic artist, the best in the business. She no longer wants her job. The haunted faces of the killers and victims she¿s sketched over the years have taken their toll. But police chief Jack Bowman isn¿t an easy man to deny. Jack needs Fiona¿s expertise to help put a serial killer who¿s targeting young girls behind bars. He appeals to Fiona¿s sense of justice and successfully convinces her to help him. But as they work together, Fiona becomes more important to Jack than he ever imagined she could.~~~~~~~Thread of Fear is the first book I¿ve ever read more than once. Yes, it is that good! The writing is tight, the story is explosive and the tension kept me turning pages long into the night. I had no choice. I had to find out what happened. Right from the start, Ms. Griffin¿s talent took me inside the story and gave me a front row seat to all the emotions Fiona and Jack experience while tracking the killer and fighting their attraction to each other. And I have to mention Fiona¿s sister, Courtney. Ms. Griffin created such a wonderfully complicated character in Courtney, I couldn¿t help but like her and I¿m already looking forward to her story in Whisper of Warning. The next time you¿re in the bookstore, make sure to pick up Thread of Fear. I promise you won¿t be disappointed!

Laura Griffin doesn't disappoint. Though I read this series out of order, I was still engaged and surprised by the character development. Can't wait to read the rest of the Tracer series now that I am caught up.
