Sum It Up! Overall, Twisted is a good book full of suspense as long as you can overlook Allison’s severe character flaws.

Motive, opportunity, and no alibi—it seems close to a slam-dunk. But while rookie detective Allison Doyle’s department has ID’d a suspect in a young woman’s vicious murder, she is uneasy. Then legendary FBI profiler Mark Wolfe shows up with a startling theory: if he’s right, the real murderer is an elusive psychopath just days away from another kill.

Using Allison’s contacts at the Delphi Center crime lab, Wolfe is finally in striking distance of the monster he’s pursued for ten years. Except that as they work together, Wolfe finds the ambitious, stubborn woman a tempting distraction. And with this brutal predator, every thread of evidence can make the difference between being the hunter . . . and the prey. (Goodreads)


A serial killer has resurfaced from a ten year hiatus only to follow that pattern that has baffled Special Agent Mark Wolfe. Detective Allison Doyle is fresh-faced, idealistic and the only female detective in her department. She is eager to make a name for herself and finds the perfect opportunity when a particularly gruesome murder takes place. Together she and Wolfe rush to find the killer before he strikes again.

I really wanted to rate this 5th installment of the Tracers series higher, however, the protagonist’s maturity level diverted me from this intriguing, fast-paced thriller. I found Allison’s constant mistakes, the need to prove herself, and age aggravating. Her relationship with Wolfe seemed more forced than a true romance. I loved Wolfe’s character and the people of Delphi Center, especially Ben Lawson. However, the superb storyline excellent twist does not aid in the missteps of Allison. In fact, I am surprised Laura Griffin would allow a female character look so unprofessional and foolish. Overall, Twisted is a good book full of suspense as long as you can overlook Allison’s severe character flaws.
