Dr. Kelsey Quinn is a forensic anthropologist, who works
for Delphi Center. Part of her job is to go where bodies
are found and try to identify the remains. Not an easy job
but fulfilling for her as she works to get the answers the
dead are trying to tell. She has no idea that one of her
digs is about to get her badly SCORCHED.
Her personal life is a bit of a mess, she had broken up
with Gage Brewer; she couldn't deal with his being
secretive. He's a SEAL and he has to be secretive. After
breaking off with him she doesn't see him again until her
Uncle Joe Quinn's funeral, where she is seen with her
fiancé FBI special agent Blake Reid. The fiancé doesn't
turn out so good either so she feels she is 0 for 2 in the
But now Kelsey is on the run after witnessing the murder of
Blake. She can't go to the police or FBI, because they were
there when he was killed. Gage finds out that she is
missing and in true lovers fashion races to find her and
help her find out what is going on. Is it possible that
Reid's death had something to do with her recent find in
After she and Gage meet up and begin to work together,
evidence, that Kelsey knows is false begins to come forward
implicating Gage. The couple must work together to clear
him and find answers and possibly save a few lives in the
process. If and when everything is cleared up will it be
possible for them to have a second chance with each other?
SCORCHED is action packed from beginning to end. Author
Laura Griffin put together amazing characters, with strong
deep emotions especially for each other, in Kelsey and
Gage. I also found the little side romance between Agent
Elizabeth LaBlanc, a newbie FBI who was brought aboard the
investigation by Supervisory Special Agent Gordon Moore,
and SEAL Derek Vaughn added extra spice to the mix. This is
the first Tracers novel I've read so far but I
it will not be the last.

And their most dangerous mission is only beginning.
