Hide and Seek (Criminal Profiler #1) by Mary Burton is an intense, well-thought-out romantic suspense story. The author kept me on the edge of my seat as I read this thrilling suspense story.
During demolition of a barn outside Deep Run, Virginia a red backpack and human bones have been discovered. FBI Agent Macy Crow is sent to Deep Run to investigate and ends up working with former FBI Agent and now Sheriff Mike Nevada. Macy has worked with Mike before when he was still an FBI agent. They also had an affair when they worked together. Macy isn’t sure what to expect when she meets up with Mike again but she knows they work well together. As for the attraction, only time will tell.
The investigation into the murder becomes more complicated when the DNA found on the backpack links the murder to several rapes which occurred around the same time as the murder. Macy and Mike have their work cut out for them.
Mary Burton is one of my favorite authors and I am looking forward to the next thrilling adventure she will take me on.
