ARC Review: Stalked (Lucy Kincaid Novels) [Mass Market Paperback]



I've finished "Stalked" the book in her Lucy Kincaid series by Allison Brennan.

Product Description

Stalked

Allison Brennan Lucy Kincaid returns — as a killer’s obsession.


IN THE GAME OF CRIME

A new trainee at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Lucy Kincaid has already seen more than her share of murder and mayhem. Still reeling from the sex-crime case that sealed her reputation, she’s found a true friend and mentor in Agent Tony Presidio. No matter what goes down at the Bureau, Tony’s got her back — until he’s called to New York to help investigate the murder of a reporter with ties to Lucy.

NEVER PLAY THE VICTIM

But the reporter may not be the first victim of a patient killer with a penchant for revenge, and she’s definitely not the last. Connections between closed cases, a missing person, and Tony himself lead Lucy to fear for those she cares for most. When the FBI is rocked by the death of one of their own, Lucy seeks the help of her boyfriend, private investigator Sean Rogan, to help put together the puzzle — and puts her career in jeopardy. But the harder she pushes for answers, the clearer the truth becomes: There’s a killer inside Quantico. Watching her every move. Waiting to kill again …

My Review:

Lucy Kincaid is finally a new FBI trainee at FBI Academy in Quantico.  If you have been reading from the first book her first application was denied but she on her second one she is admitted.  She is enjoying her training class but she knows she is being watched because of her past (kidnapped and then her rape and torture broadcasted on the web).  One of her trainers obviously doesn't like her for some reason only her sister-in-law Kate knows.

A reporter she has ties too is murdered so the FBI and police ask Lucy for her help and assistance in their investigation.  The reporter Rosemary Weber wrote a book about a case where twelve-year-old Rachel is kidnapped from her bedroom, raped and killed.  Her parents lie to the police since they were hosting a swingers party.  The case is sensationalized as a true-crime' bestseller and the family disintegrates soon after.

Now the author and anyone associated with the case are being killed off in inventive ways.  Sean assists Lucy by trying to keep her safe and to try to locate original victim's younger brother Peter.

This was a very fast paced well written compelling read with psychotic killers.  We see Lucy and Seth's relationship has deepen and she has become a confident, smart, intuitive and brave young women.

We see the return of beloved characters, FBI profiler Hans Vigo, FBI agents Noah Armstrong and Suzanne Madeaux, Assistant Director Rick Stockton, Kate Donovan and brothers Dillon and Patrick.

4/5
