Every step they take the pair argues safety vs. catching one killer plus an apparent partner or accessory; either way a diabolically brilliant predator.

and I am going to read the other 2 just as fast as I can order them. This is a fast paced novel, police procedure with overtones of the FBI profilers only they are called mindhunters in this book and there was a movie by the same name starring William Peterson. All are excellent. Getting inside the head of a serial killer takes an unusual talent and gift and this girl has it and more. I will not depict the plot here, others have already done it better than I, but the fast pacing, excellent plotting and daredevil action cannot be beat. Sit down, settle down and enjoy a rollicking good read.

I wondered if I read the same book the others readers read. The only reason I gave it four stars is because I didn't see the option for 3.5 stars. The characters were likable enough and there was a twist or two. My gripe is that there was so much technical stuff. It seemed to go on and on and on. Waking the Dead didn't get my motor running until after page 200 or so. I read the first book and really enjoyed it. I'm a bit hesitant about book three or the one that I haven't read.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Oregon's Willamette Forest, nature guide Zach Sharper finds seven garbage bags in a remote part of the wilderness in a cave on Castle Rock where you would not expect any trash. He takes a peek and finds each contains bones that he knows from his Ranger days are human remains although none contain a skull. He calls the authorities.

Sheriff Marin Andrews asks Raiker Forensics for help in identifying the bodies. They send former model turned forensic anthropologist Caitlin Fleming to investigate. Sheriff Andrews hires Zach to guide and protect Caitlin into the wilderness. He reluctantly escorts Caitlin deep into what seems to her the primeval forest to the cave on Castle Rock. Every step they take the pair argues safety vs. catching one killer plus an apparent partner or accessory; either way a diabolically brilliant predator.

The latest Mindhunters romantic suspense thriller (see WAKING NIGHTMARE and WAKING EVIL) is a terrific entry as the investigation supersedes the romance; both want one another but know survival comes before seeing where their relationship goes. Zach is a super guide who takes the heroine and readers to a remote part of Oregon while Cait is a fabulous forensic anthropologist due to a fascinating former career as a model. Fans will enjoy climbing Willamette Forest with this couple.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kylie Brant has created an electrifying and infinitely gripping novel. Waking the Dead is the third novel in a series featuring characters that work for Raiker Forensics. In graphic detail, Kylie creates despicable crimes that add chills and stomach churning tension. Through the heroine's investigation, the relationship that develops between the hero and she smolders, culminating in an explosion. Secondary characters, add entertaining and lighter moments with their different personalities and interaction in what would otherwise be a very dark story indeed. Kyle writes excellent dialogue, creates engaging characters, vividly detailed investigation and action scenes. The smooth process in which she moves the story along keeps the pages turning, allowing the reader to immerse themselves in the novel from start to finish.

Kyle Brant is becoming a firm favorite of mine for her detailed, well-researched and suspenseful stories. I highly recommend this story, this series and look forward to reading the next book. - Abi

I enjoy Kylie Brant's characters, and those in Waking the Dead are no different. She depicts strong, independent, three-dimensional heroes, heroines, and side characters that pull me in and make me want to know what happens to them. The tension that keeps Zach and Cait apart for a while is believable--Zach doesn't want to be at the beck and call of anyone for any reason, even a murder investigation, and his lack of social graces doesn't endear him to Cait. It doesn't help that for a little while it seems he might fit the profile of the murderer in some respects. Once the two come together, of course, they have delicious chemistry and some delightful sex scenes.

I particularly enjoy Kylie's exploration of psychologically damaged characters, despite the difficulty of believing in three sequential heroines working for the same company who have such messed-up pasts and home lives. She uses both the perps and the family members of the heroines (and sometimes others as well) to examine a variety of mental issues, often with a sympathetic eye.

Another particular joy that I take in this series is the fact that it defies the convention many stories follow in which a woman falls in love and immediately settles down and gives up whatever job it was that previously was so important to her. Brant's characters go through at least some maneuvering to come up with ways to juggle career and love.

In the last two books I objected to a lack of foreshadowing--I very much like to be able to look back at the end of a mystery and, even if I couldn't guess whodunit, think, "aha! That makes sense!" but I had trouble doing so with Waking Nightmare and Waking Evil because there were so few hints, even in retrospect. That was much better in this book.
