FBI special agent Zoe Spencer uses skeletal remains to recreate the faces of murder victims through sculpture. Though highly scientific, the process is also sensitive and intimate; she becomes attached to the individuals she identifies, desperate to find justice for each.

As Zoe examines old remains, she sees a teenage girl looking back at her—the victim in a cold case from over a decade ago. Zoe wants nothing more than to tell this young woman’s story and to bring her killer to justice.

Zoe’s case leads her to the victim’s hometown and to homicide detective William Vaughan, Zoe’s on-again, off-again lover. As the two become more involved in the case, they quickly realize that it isn’t as cold as they first believed: someone’s still out there hunting women. And with more women gone missing, time’s running out. Can they work together and stop this madman before he kills again?

I didn’t realize until I was writing this review, I See You is a new installment in the Criminal Profiler series. It’s truly a time where each book is standalone. You don’t have to read Hide and Seek first as they are totally unrelated. The connection is each one has a criminal profiler as a main character. Oddly, Hide and Seek is more related to the standalone Cut and Run where the main character Macy Crow is introduced, and it should follow that book in reading.

Also, I See You is a mystery, thriller with only minor romantic elements. It is not a romance.  Hide and Seek had  more romance.  I really enjoyed both books.  I listened to both on audio and the narrators are different, but since the main characters are different it worked well.  I am a fan of this author’s work in both styles.

The police procedural aspects take up most of the story as the FBI profiler Zoe and homicide detective William Vaughn hunt down a cold case which ends up being tied to a current serial killer case.  There are plenty of twisty details and surprising turns. It’s just the sort of book I’m liking best right now.  Overall,  it held my interest and was not overly complex in its details or characters.

Narration:

This narrator was new to me and her voices were comfortable for males and females.  There were no glaring odd voices or accents, everything seemed appropriate and I was able to stay in the story.  I enjoyed the performance.  I was able to listen at my usual 1.5x speed.

She also enjoys hunting down serial killers, which she does in her and USA Today bestselling novels of suspense and romance. Library Journal has compared her work to that of Lisa Jackson and Lisa Gardner, and Fresh Fiction likened her writing to that of James Patterson.

Mary is routinely featured among the top twenty writers in Amazon’s Author Rankings for romantic suspense, and her recent novel The Last Move claimed the number ten fiction slot in the Kindle eBooks Store.

Research is a favorite part of Mary’s day. She never tires of learning more about police work, evidence collection and analysis. She’s known for taking a hands-on approach, whether it means interviews with professionals in the field, forensic seminars or lessons at the firing range.

Her new book, Her Last Word, and The Last Move, break that mold.

When not traveling for research or visiting with readers at bookstores, book festivals and conferences, Mary remains very much a homebody. She and her husband spend time alternately enjoying and lamenting their empty nest and spoiling their four-legged babies Buddy, Bella and Tiki.

I can't really remember any time when I wasn't reading. I LOVE books and what they give me. It's an opportunity to learn new things, see new places,live different emotions in a "safe" way. It lets me live in a new world.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.

    • I am really enjoying these mystery thrillers which follow police or FBI procedures. The crimes are often so heinous one has to emotionally detach a bit to follow the evidence. So they are riveting without being too emotional if that makes any sense.
