REVIEWER'S OPINION:
Very good. There were some clever ideas and some things I hadn't heard before. I liked the conversations. There was nice romantic development. I might have liked a little more wow factor or emotional appeal to give it 5 stars.
I agree with Bookaholics Reviewer who describes this as intelligent, detailed, filled with high tension, and has a feeling similar to watching CSI.

A perfect romantic suspense combination Jan. 3 2010
By Monie Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of private investigator Alex Lovell's special skills is to help clients disappear while leaving bread crumbs that throw the pursuer off in the wrong direction. The key to this though is that the client sticks to the plan.

When Alex finds out that Melanie Bess has not only left her hiding place in Florida but come back to Austin she is livid. Tracking her down to a remote cabin Alex finds a severed ipod earbud and a suspicious amount of blood which leads her to believe that Melanie's ex has caught up with her.

Alex then takes her suspicions to the homicide detective Nathan Deveraux. Not only does Nathan think that Melanie is not truly missing but he also doesn't believe that her ex, who is an upstanding member of the Austin PD, is involved. But little by little the clues start to add up to something bigger than either of them suspected and if Alex keeps digging, she just might be digging her own grave.

Untraceable is a the first book in the new Tracers Series but both Alex and Nathan are characters that appear in Griffin's Glass Sisters Series so starting the book they were already familiar characters for me.

Griffin is truly a master of the romantic suspense genre. She captures the heat between Alex and Nathan perfectly and at the same time gives us a nail-biting plot that is fully developed. It kept me guessing until the very end and I never even figured who was behind the bad buys which was genius!! Untraceable is a recommended read for anyone who loves a perfect romantic suspense novel.

Untraceable by Laura Griffin Dec 30 2009
By Suzanne E. Coleburn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've never seen pages fly by so fast as when I was reading Laura Griffin's new Tracers series book UNTRACEABLE. It is full of suspense and breath taking thrills as P.I. Alexandra Lovell tries to trace a woman she made disappear for her protection. Melanie Bess wanted to escape from her husband, who is a wife beater, and Laura helped her but now Melanie seems gone for good. Alex enlists the help of an elite team of forensic scientists known as The Tracers. She also meets sexy Austin PD detective Nathan Devereax who she convinces to help her find Melanie. Alex thinks she may be murdered and Nathan tells her she needs a body before she has a case.

Wow, once you start reading you can't stop so clear the decks, light the lights and lock the doors! You're in for a whirlwind of an adventure that will knock your socks off. Laura Griffin is a hot new author you want to put on your "must read" list.

Untraceable June 30 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Private investigator Alex Lovell helped Melanie Coghan disappear. But when Melanie really disappears, Alex worries that the man Melanie was running from - her husband Craig - is the reason why. Craig is a cop, which makes things sticky so Alex turns to a cop she can trust for help - Nathan Devereaux, but Nathan finds her very hard to believe. It's not until Alex may be in danger that he starts to see the truth behind her story. The danger goes much deeper than either of them imagined and Craig will stop at nothing to see that his secrets stay hidden.

Alex hides her vulnerability behind a calm, cool, and collected façade. She's smart, tough, and fiercely independent while being continually stubborn. Right from the start Nathan is a perfect match for Alex. He can be aloof and he is intense, but he's hiding his vulnerability as well. The angst-filled and passionate relationship between Alex and Nathan is matched by the many twists and turns in Untraceable. It's a riveting, compelling, and frightening story.

Suspense That Sucks You in From the Opening Chapter Nov. 3 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Untraceable is listed as the 1st book in The Tracers series so even though I later discovered that Alexandra Lovell and Nathan Devereaux actually made a brief appearance in an earlier book (Whisper of Warning), I don't believe it had any impact on starting my Laura Griffin experience with Untraceable.

The opening chapter of Untraceable grabs you right from the start setting the stage for what is a compelling, well written, highly entertaining story. I love it when a book hooks you right from the beginning and you just want the world to go away and leave you alone so you can lose yourself in the story. It's one of the reasons I love me a great romantic suspense read.

PI Alex Lovell is good at making people disappear. Her latest case involves helping a woman Melanie Bess disappear from her abusive husband....who just happens to be a well respected cop. Alex needs to build a case but it's going to be tough since Melanie seems to have permanently disappeared and since the main suspect is a cop, Alex isn't holding her breath expecting any help from the Austin PD.

I love when the heroine is written as a strong female character and Alex Lovell definitely fits that bill. She's smart and savvy, independent and more than capable of looking after herself and the clients who need her help. But part of being smart is knowing when to ask for help when you're in over your head and Alex isn't above using her connection with hunky Police Detective Nathan Devereaux to solve her case.

Nathan doesn't buy Alex's story for one minute about one of his co-workers and a respected member of the Houston PD, but when she presents some compelling evidence, he decides to giver her the benefit of the doubt and agrees to help her on the down low. Besides what better way to get closer to the sexy PI then to help her investigate her case and possibly expose a dirty cop.

Untraceable is a fast paced story, full of nail-biting action that keeps you invested in the story and the characters until the last page is turned. Although billed as a romantic suspense, the romance simmers and builds in the background as Alex and Nathan dance around their undeniable attraction to one another. One of the reasons this book touched a chord with me is that Ms. Griffin writes these characters so that I really came to care about them and their HEA.

If you are a fan of romantic suspense, great storytelling that will keep you guessing and strong, intellectual characters then Untraceable is the book for you.
