Thread of Fear
A review by Lexi Connor
Laura Griffin strikes gold with her third book, Thread of Fear. Fiona Glass is a forensic artist, the best in the business. She no longer wants her job. The haunted faces of the killers and victims she’s sketched over the years have taken their toll. But police chief Jack Bowman isn’t an easy man to deny. Jack needs Fiona’s expertise to help put a serial killer who’s targeting young girls behind bars. He appeals to Fiona’s sense of justice and successfully convinces her to help him. But as they work together, Fiona becomes more important to Jack than he ever imagined she could.
Thread of Fear is the first book I’ve ever read more than once. Yes, it is that good! The writing is tight, the story is explosive and the tension kept me turning pages long into the night. I had no choice. I had to find out what happened. Right from the start, Ms. Griffin’s talent took me inside the story and gave me a front row seat to all the emotions Fiona and Jack experience while tracking the killer and fighting their attraction to each other. And I have to mention Fiona’s sister, Courtney. Ms. Griffin created such a wonderfully complicated character in Courtney, I couldn’t help but like her and I’m already looking forward to her story in Whisper of Warning. The next time you’re in the bookstore, make sure to pick up Thread of Fear. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
