Private investigator Alexandra Lovell uses computer skills and cunning to help clients drop off the radar and begin new lives in safety. Melanie Bess, desperate to escape her abusive cop husband, was one of those clients. But when Melanie vanishes for real, Alex fears the worst, and sets out to discover what happened. Using every resource she can get her hands on - including an elite team of forensic scientists known as the Tracers and a jaded, sexy Austin PD detective - Alex embarks on a mission to uncover the truth.
As far as homicide cop Nathan Deveraux is concerned, no body means no case. But as much as he wants to believe that Alex's hunch about Melanie's murder is wrong, his instincts - and their visceral attraction - won't let him walk away. As a grim picture of what really happened begins to emerge, Nathan realizes this investigation runs deeper than they could ever have guessed. And each step closer to the truth puts Alex in danger of being the next to disappear.

Narrator is not for me
WOW! WHAT A TREAT!!!
Brand new author for me that I discovered through Audible.com and am so glad I did.
It wasn't necessarily a particular moment that got to me, it was the entire development of the relationship between Alex and Nathan. I enjoyed and appreciated every moment of their "dance."
It was apparent from beginning to end Talmadge did her homework before getting in front of the mic. She had a clear understanding of the characters and the author's pacing and performed them effortlessly. And kudos for the voice of Nathan who still sounded man enough to park his shoes under my bed any day of the week.
Religiously, I search my target genres for books read by (in no particular order) Joyce Bean, Susan Ericksen, Carrington MacDuffie, Kristen Potter, Patrick Lawlor, Jack Garrett, James Daniels and Dennis Boutsikaris. And my new favorite, Talmadge Ragan.
Absolutely! My hubby made a fast food dinner run.
I've been unhappy with the rash of fantasy/vampire/shape shifter and "erotica" that seem to have flooded Audible's romance genre in favor of smartly written stories that I can sink my teeth into such as this. And before fans of those subgenres want to stone me, I'm not knocking your beloved books. I've tried a few here and there, but prefer other genres more.
Audible, please release the other six books in the series - with the same narrator. Thank you.
