Author(s): 

Brant follows up last year’s Waking the Dead with another fantastic read in The Mindhunter series. Deadly Intent is gripping, action packed and thoroughly compelling. Brant skillfully weaves a well-planned mystery storyline into a romantic suspense plot — a complicated feat to be sure. Readers won’t be able to figure this one out until Brant wants them to!

Macy Reid, a forensic linguist for Raiker’s group, has been called in to help find a child who’s been abducted for the second time. In addition to navigating a complicated case and trying to bring the little girl home before any harm is done to her, Macy must navigate her feelings for Kellan Burke, a one-night stand from her past.

Determined to solve the case, Kellan soon realizes that Macy’s secrets may hold the answer to the mystery. He must walk a fine tightrope and push her enough that she opens up, but not too much that she’ll hate him forever. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Nov., 384 pp., $7.99)
