Untouchable

Summary: A man’s quest to find answers for those who are haunted by the past leads him deeper into the shadows in this electrifying novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Promise Not to Tell.

Quinton Zane is back.

Jack Lancaster, consultant to the FBI, has always been drawn to the coldest of cold cases, the kind that law enforcement either considers unsolvable or else has chalked up to accidents or suicides. As a survivor of a fire, he finds himself uniquely compelled by arson cases. His almost preternatural ability to get inside the killer’s head has garnered him a reputation in some circles–and complicated his personal life. The more cases Jack solves, the closer he slips into the darkness. His only solace is Winter Meadows, a meditation therapist. After particularly grisly cases, Winter can lead Jack back to peace.

But as long as Quinton Zane is alive, Jack will not be at peace for long. Having solidified his position as the power behind the throne of his biological family’s hedge fund, Zane sets out to get rid of Anson Salinas’s foster sons, starting with Jack.

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’ve read a few of Jayne Ann Krentz’s books and enjoyed them. And then I started on the Cutler, Sutter & Salinas series. And they have been ok. I’ve been somewhat entertained and enjoyed them for the most part. The 2 earlier books in the series- When All The Girls Have Gone and Promise Not To Tell were quick and fast reads. In fact after finishing Promise Not To Tell recently, I began looking for this book. I missed out on getting a review copy and was debating about buying it- when I called my local library and spoke to my favorite library assistant and she told me they had the book and she would put it aside for me. So yay!

However, this book was just ok. Don’t ask me about it in 6 months because I’ll probably not be able to tell you much.

 

What I Liked:

The cover was pretty cool.

The dynamic between Quinton and Jack is pretty decent. They both want to destroy the other and that def upped the intrigue in this book- but I don’t feel like their relationship was explored as deeply as it could have been.

The ending. It was a nice ending.

 

Bottom line: There is nothing wrong with this book exactly- it’s just not very memorable. The romance was a bit rushed and Jack has this annoying habit of stating how mathematically certain he is of things to happen- at first it was kinda cute- but then it became 100% annoying. So, in the end- glad I didn’t waste a gift card on this book and was able to get from library.
