New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin “delivers the goods” (Publishers Weekly) again with the eleventh title in the gritty, heart-pounding Tracers series.
When a lakeside tryst ends in a double murder, police detective Daniele Harper arrives on the scene determined to get answers. Clues are everywhere, but nothing adds up. Dani turns to the Delphi Center crime lab for help, but soon regrets it when her secret attraction to their chief firearms examiner threatens to distract her from the most important case of her career.
As a ballistics expert and former Navy SEAL, Scott Black knows firearms, and he knows he can help Dani unravel her case. Scott has managed to hide his interest in his best friend’s younger sister for years, but when her investigation brings them together, the sparks between them quickly get out of control. Scott resolves to keep his hands off Dani and his eyes on the goal—identifying a killer. But when that killer zeroes in on Dani, all bets are off. There isn’t a line Scott won’t cross to convince Dani to trust him so that he can help her take down a ruthless murderer who has her in his sights.
At Close Range (Tracers #11) is gruesome, action packed, intriguing read that has plenty of sex scenes to keep you hot and bothered.
Police Detective Dani Harper’s has always been treated as one of the boys by bad boy Scott Black. She’s untouchable in Scott’s eye what with her being his best friends sister.
The development of Dani and Scott’s relationship is sculpted by the story plot. Framed for a murder he didn’t commit Scott Black will risk everything to clear his name. Dani is the lead of the case and knows that Scott Black did not commit the murder, her deep feelings for Scott have her risking her job and life to prove him innocent.
I have a feeling the next one will focus on Sean and Brookes relationship. Which I’m looking forward to.
There doesn’t seem to be an elaborate plot, a tapestry of evil that we can unravel the further we read through the novel. I’m left with a million questions
- Why didn’t we find out why Scott Black was chosen as the fall guy?
- What was the plot behind the attempted killing of Dani?
- When Dani’s house was broken into (which was an elaborate plot) why after breaking in did he wake her up and why didn’t he attempt to over power her? What was the point of the break in?
Scott’s conflicting reactions leave me confused. Why did he feel that he need to wrap Dani in cotton wool but then he left her stranded at a motel with no means to escape?! One minute he trusts her to look after herself then he treats her like the detective she is.
I feel that there is a personal development of Dani’s character. Dani doesn’t impress like a Karen Rose characters and doesn’t sloth to the same standard as JD Robbs’ Eve Dallas. She’s tough but not tough enough, she detects but does not connect the dots. She doesn’t really detect whats going on, Scott seems to tell her whats going on.
