Book Description

A psychopathic killer is stalking the women of Sydney . . .
Federal Agent Clayton Munro, a criminal profiler with the Australian Federal Police (AFP), has been called upon to assist in hunting down a vicious murderer who is intent upon carving up his victims while they’re still alive. Guilt-stricken over his wife’s suicide, Clayton’s forced to set aside his personal issues in order to focus on the case.
Detective Ellie Cooper is also no stranger to heartache. Pregnant and abandoned at the altar by a fiancé intent on pursuing a career with the AFP, her opinion of the elite body of officers is anything but favorable. Angered when her boss orders her to partner with the Fed, she’s determined not to cut him any slack.
But women are dying on the streets of western Sydney and the pressure is mounting to find the person responsible.
Will Clayton and Ellie be able to put aside their animosity and work together to catch a killer before it’s too late? And what about the special fascination the killer seems to have with Ellie . . .

It is this background that has allowed her to write suspenseful, racy, no-holds-barred romantic suspense novels set in her home country of Australia. From the streets of Sydney to the outback, Chris' novels not only keep you on the edge of your seat, they also take you on a journey across the beautiful landscapes that make up Australia.

Chris lives with her husband and five children on a small farm in rural New South Wales, Australia.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK story, but silly and adolescent romance July 18, 2014
By Halvena
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The main story is about the hunt for a serial killer in Sydney and it is not a bad story and it is not badly written. That it is set in Sydney is refreshing, most stories of this kind tend to come from the US.
But - the characters are not up to par! They have all suffered a major tragedy themselves, a daughter that disappeared, a child that died and a wife who committed suicide. This is probably meant to make them seem real and human, but it is just too much and it is mentioned over and over and over again. Then there is the romance, The main characters are of course gorgeous, both of them, and they are of course instantly attracted to each other and it is just too obvious where this is going from the start. This adolescent love story takes over the whole thing and is so irritating that it spoils an otherwise nice story.

1.0 out of 5 stars romance, no mystery July 18, 2014
By connie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this is 90% romance. I signed up for mystery thrillers. In the first few pages we learned the identity of the killer. Then blah-blah till the last few pages. If you like romance mystery, you will probably like this. I don't and I didn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Profiler April 7, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I fully concur with the other reviewers! Really enjoyed this book. Loved the characters Clayton and Ellie - both very real. Great setting in Sydney and a good story line - very believable. It is always a pleasure to read a book that is set in your own country. Chris Taylor is a gem! Cannot wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Australian Thriller with Sizzle April 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
An Amazing First Book – New Series
Love the exotic setting of Australia and the introduction to this family of members dedicated to serving and protecting. I really enjoyed this truly chilling thriller. It made me realize some people are just plain evil and if you're in the wrong place at the right time being careful won't make a difference. A frightening read.
David Baldacci and James Patterson, beware. Chris Taylor is a talented new writer who loves words and tells a thrilling story while weaving in hot romance to boot.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Profile is to be Avoided! July 20, 2014
By Jan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is promoted as a murder mystery. Not! It is just a cheap romance with pornographic writing disguised as a mystery. Within the first few minutes of starting this book, it is clear "whodunit." All the rest is just a poorly written romance with cheap pornography, all of which is not that well written. Somehow it really offended me to think I was reading a good murder mystery to be so short changed by this author. If I had it to do all over again, I would definitely not spend my time trying to trudge my way through this book. Even being a free book, it wasn't worth the price I paid... the time I spent hoping it would improve. It never did!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book holds your attention throughout. August 31, 2014

The Profiler was a very good book. It kept my attention throughout. There were a lot of unexpected twists and turns that drove the story along. Although there was a romantic element to the book, it definitely played a backseat to the mystery and suspense. Oh, and there was a surprising amount of murder, pain and suffering that made the book very serious.

This story is based in Sydney, Australia. The Profiler is about the search for a sadistic serial killer that has been mutilating young women. When the police department gets desperate, they call in Australian Federal Police profiler Clayton Munro. He gets partnered with lead Police Detective Ellie Cooper. Both Clayton and Ellie have suffered major losses in their lives and have yet to heal from those losses. More importantly, they have not given themselves an opportunity to be happy again. The fact that a murder investigation brings them together creates an interesting dynamic between them. The suspense regarding their relationship is just as compelling as the suspense regarding the murderer that they are trying to find.

As more information about the killer’s past is revealed, you understand what drove him to his sickness. The suspense regarding his identity is drawn out throughout most of the book. When everything is revealed, you will be shocked. In addition, the relationship that develops between Clayton and Ellie will be just as intriguing. They have a very therapeutic effect on each other that goes beyond a simple romance. There is so much more to be said about this book but it would ruin it for you. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
it was described as a mystery but is 90 percent romance. if they spent as much time solving the murders as they did admiring each others butts it would easily been solved. Amazon needs to describe the books accurately.
