Thread of Fear by Laura Griffin is the first book in the “Glass Sisters” mystery series. Publisher: Pocket Star, September 2008
Forensic artist Fiona Glass is the best in the business — which is precisely why she’s quitting. Her skill at mining victims’ memories to re-create the faces of sadistic criminals has left her haunted and wary, and only Jack Bowman’s dogged persistence convinces her to help him. The rugged police chief is hunting a serial killer who’s targeting teenage girls. But what seems like a simple assignment is fraught with complications, including a searing attraction to Jack that’s tempting Fiona to let her guard down in potentially dangerous ways.
Jack never intended for Fiona to become so deeply involved in the case — or in his life. But every instinct tells him she’s his best hope for finding a psychopath who’s lurking in plain sight, growing more ruthless with each passing day. And now that Fiona is right in the killer’s crosshairs, the only way to keep her safe is to unravel a small town’s darkest secrets, one terrifying thread at a time….
Fiona Glass is a forensic artist who helps sketch the perpetrators from traumatized victims. She’s trying to keep her vow of quitting when she is constantly called in for a case. After helping a victim of a crime that happened 11 years ago sketch the man who tortured her, they see the resemblance in the recent crime spree and they now know there is a serial killer on the loose. Fiona teams up with police chief, Jack Bowman and together they will bring this killer in. This was a page-turner that I couldn’t put down.
