This book felt flat. I wanted more emotional development, more details, and closure from men who mistreated Elaina. July 4 2010
By Jane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Elaina is a rookie FBI agent. She studied to be a profiler. She is sent to Texas to gain field experience. She is unwelcome in the male world. Her boss plans to fire her within the year. He sends her to Lito Island, Texas, to work on a serial killer case. The local police chief and Texas Ranger in charge of the case don't like her and don't want her involved. They make things difficult for her. Troy is a local author who became wealthy writing true crime novels. He is interested in the case and helps Elaina even though she doesn't want his help. The killer kidnaps women, kills them with a knife, and dumps their bodies in wildlife refuge areas.

At the end of the book, I felt a number of subjects were incomplete. I wanted to know more about what the killer did to his victims, were they conscious at the time, what his feelings were, and why he did this. I wanted to know more about the killer's involvement with the online game. I wanted to know what the killer was thinking and feeling when he contacted Elaina to give her clues. I wanted to know who and why certain FBI men wanted Elaina to fail. At the end of the book, I was hoping to hear comments from FBI men and the local authorities about being thankful for what Elaina did regarding the case, and/or changing their minds about her, but not enough happened.

I was not emotionally engaged. I had trouble caring about Elaina. I did not like the way she treated Troy. I wasn't in Troy's head to understand why he was attracted to Elaina, other than her long legs. After they had sex, they both treated each other poorly and were angry with each other, which didn't feel right to me. It felt like an excuse to create conflict. The story could have used more romantic emotional development.

Story length: 384 pages. Swearing language: strong, including religious swear words. Sexual language: none. Number of sex scenes: 2. Total number of sex scene pages: 9. Setting: current day Texas, Mexico, and Virginia. Copyright: 2010. Genre: romantic suspense.

Unspeakable Nov. 1 2010
By M. Nix - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Rookie FBI profiler Elaina McCord is struggling on her first case. It seems no one wants her to succeed, and everyone is getting in her way. But Elaina is smart and determined, and she'll do whatever it takes to solve the case.

True-crime writer Troy Stockton can have any woman he wants, but Elaina is proving a challenge. The sparks fly between Troy and Elaina as they try to find and stop a serial killer who preys on innocent women.

Troy is a little arrogant, yet with good cause. He's a man of many talents, and he makes Elaina look even greener than she is. Elaina follows Troy's lead in the beginning, but as the story progresses, they work together, and she manages to level the playing field. She's determined to prove herself, and against all odds, she does. She's intelligent and good at her job. There is little romantic chemistry between Troy and Elaina, although they are attracted to each other. Elaina holds a lot of animosity towards Troy and constantly gives him the cold shoulder, so it's somewhat of a surprise that Troy is so persistent. They do have a very sensual romance and get their happily ever after, though. Unspeakable is exciting, suspenseful, and very well written. I was guessing until the end and surprised at the outcome. The Tracers series is compelling and riveting, and I'm anxiously looking forward to book three. Laura Griffin has quickly joined the ranks of my favorite romantic suspense authors.

Another winner by Laura Griffin June 30 2010
By Jane Myers Perrine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Elaina McCord is having a bad career day. A new FBI special agent, she had put down her top choices for a post--Baltimore, D.C. and New York--but ends up in the office called the graveyard of careers: Brownsville, TX. Not only does her supervisor dislike her for unknown reasons, but the sheriff she's sent to work with on her first assignment makes it clear he doesn't want her help.

No one listens to Elaina's theory that the most recent victim was killed by a serial killer whose first murder--that of Mary Beth Cooper--took place nine years earlier. That old case has been solved; the culprit imprisoned but the bodies keep coming.

As the investigation into the latest murder begins, Elaina meets Troy Stockton who published a book about the nine-year-old case, attributing the death to the now imprisoned Charles Diggins. A well know writer, Troy interviewed Diggins and obviously doesn't agree with Elaina's theory. Other than that, he's very impressed with the special agent.

Troy is a wonderful character, successful, strong and sexy, who works with Elaina to investigate the most recent murders. As they work together, Elaina discovers her own strengths and recognizes she is a capable agent as she solves the case through hard work and guts. The novel ends with an exciting, suspenseful chase through the channels of the coastal waterway as Troy and Elaina speed after the murderer and his last victim.

Laura Griffin has written another sizzling thriller with unforgettable characters. Nominated for a RITA for Whisper of Warning book, Ms. Griffin has another winner in this exciting tale of love, adventure and learning to trust. If you're looking for great characters, romance and a fast-moving story, you'll love Unspeakable.

good 2nd in the series Aug. 3 2010
By N. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Laura Griffin's second book in the Tracers series has an excellent serial killer storyline. I also enjoyed Griffin's interesting use of the geocaching phenomenon, but the romance was a bit iffy. I just wasn't quite sure that driven FBI agent Elaina would get involved with true crime novelist Troy given that she wasn't interested in a relationship with anyone in Texas (a place she never wanted to be stationed and planned to leave just as soon as she could) and that she generally seemed annoyed by Troy though he proved helpful at times. Fortunately, the romance is a minor storyline while the murder investigation is at the forefront. The killer's identity came as a shock; it was easy to figure out who he was married to, but his identity was quite the puzzler. It all came together very well.

Good Second Book in Series March 9 2013
By mommyof3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Unspeakable by Laura Griffin was a quick, suspenseful and enjoyable read. Elaina and Troy were likeable and they had good chemistry. I would have liked their characters to have been better developed. Perhaps then they would have seemed more real to me. Although I enjoyed the first book in the series, Untraceable, one of the annoying factors for me was that the main characters were not better developed. I was hoping Unspeakable would be different. Perhaps it is just the author's style not to delve into the main characters past too much. With that being said, I still enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more books by this author.
