WAKING THE DEAD
Brant continues her hot streak as she gives readers the next installment of
her transfixing Mindhunters series. The heroine's backstory and job history are different to say the least, making her interactions with other characters quite interesting. Brant also gives glimpses into the psyche of one of the killers as events unfold. This author is quickly carving out a place for herself in the psychological suspense genre.
The local sheriff calls in Caitlin to help with the identification, since the skulls are missing. Zach's services are commandeered, and he reluctantly agrees to escort Caitlin into the Willamette Forest to hunt for clues. To say they butt heads is an understatement, but if Caitlin is to stop a pair of careful and clever killers, she needs his local expertise. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Nov., 352 pp., $7.99)
