Dr. Alexandra Blake has the job of a lifetime. As a cutting-edge geneticist at AFIP—the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, D.C.—Alex is charged with using her research into the genetics of viruses to find a vaccine against bioterrorism. But the institute’s new director, James Wiatt, wants to turn the AFIP into a mini FBI by directing its resources toward crime solving—an effort to rival the Bureau’s forensic department. When a series of related murders falls under his jurisdiction, he gets his chance to prove the AFIP can compete with the Bureau.

Alex is forced to put her research on hold so she can cover forensics on the case, which involves a killer who murders women near military bases across the country and then tattoos their corpses. At first she resents being distracted from her lab work, but as she becomes immersed in the case, Alex resolves to catch the killer. She knows it’s only a matter of time before he leaves some evidence for Alex to trace back to him. But when another murder strikes closer to home for Alex and her colleagues—and her boyfriend, a congressman from Texas—it will take more than forensic science to keep them safe.

With its spellbinding mix of suspense, forensics, and romance, Lori Andrews’s debut novel signals the arrival of a powerful new writer on the crime fiction shelf. Download and start listening now!

    " The first book in the series "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christen | 10/11/2013

    " I couldn't even finish this catastrophe. It's funny, because my neighbor said the same thing. And we don't even have the same tastes in books. But both agreed that this sucked. I don't think I've ever put a book down so quickly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 4/16/2013

    " This was a really good book. About genetics and DNA and how they were used to catch a serial killer. Alexandra finally comes to terms with her father's death and finds her way in life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/4/2013

    " This was just OK. The characters were interesting, but nothing spectacular, and the mystery was not all that surprising. A good book to pass the time with, but not one I'd read over and over or really consider a must-read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 8/23/2012

    " A new author to me but one I will certainly read more of. Anyone liking Kathy Reichs type of story will enjoy this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Rogers | 6/21/2012

    " 3 star science thriller (top 50% of the genre). Some terrific, accurate use of forensic molecular biology as our doctor heroine tracks a serial killer and searches for love. For my full review, see ScienceThrillers.com "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 2/12/2012

    " This is the first fiction book that famous Geneticist Lori Andrews has written, and it's good. It's easily readable, brings genetics down to as clear and concise a level as genetics can be. The plot is alright, the heroinea bit silly but nice. It's a good first mystery novel. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julia | 2/3/2012

    " In years gone by I might have enjoyed this but at this point in my life I'd rather read better books and watch this sort of thing on TV. It felt like I was reading "Bones" but was going to eat up way more than the 43 minutes an episode I was on that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marty | 1/3/2012

    " Very good. Didn't want to put it down. Quick holiday read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Frederick Bingham | 12/11/2011

    " A rather predictable thriller about a woman using DNA sequencing to solve a set of murders. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 jc wolfkill | 11/19/2011

    " You don't have to be a nationally renowned expert on law and genetics to write a book. This is an entertainment only read with some extraneous sex added to suppliment an mediocre plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Dommert | 6/13/2011

    " good, set in small village that isolates itself "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corky | 3/17/2011

    " Lori Andrews is a new author for me. I really enjoyed this medical thirller and will read more by her. This one had just a different enough angle that I found it quite compelling.The information about DNA was fascinating and the protagonist Dr. Alexandra Blake is a very likeable character. "
