Deadly Sins (The Mindhunters) [Paperback]

I've finished "Deadly Sins" the 5th book in her Mindhunter series by Kylie Brant.

Product Description

An unknown assassin has appointed himself judge, jury, and executioner, brutally taking out high-level human targets citywide. It's just the kind of case that will test the resolve of a tough FBI agent like Jaid Marlowe. Especially when her new partner is Adam Raiker, Jaid's former colleague - and ex-lover.

My Review: 

I highly recommend reading this series if you like fast-paced romantic suspense with well written characters and spooky/creepy villains.

Storyline:  This book opens a few months after Adam's near brush with death from an assassin.

An assassin kills high profile targets in the DC city with the latest being a high-profile Supreme Court Judge Bryon Reinbeck and leaves calling cards one of the Deadly Sins which provides links back to Adam Raiker.  The judge's wife Mary Jo of twenty-five years pulls some strings to get Adam of Raiker's Forensics on the task force since they are friends.

Adam is paired with FBI agent Jaid Marlowe his former lover and collegue.

Characters: Adam is a very close minded person who doesn't like to share his past.  He has pushed Jaid out of his life to protect her and his own secrets.  He wants to keep her safe from the danger he is in.

Jaid is a an experienced FBI agent and very good in what she does. She's smart, strong and could be sneaky when the situation called for it.

All of the characters were well written including Adam's former partner now head of the investigation, Adam's former priest who was his friend and mentor who now has made some bad choices and his current partner who might have a serious gambling problem.

Romance:  I really enjoyed the romance between Jaid and Adam because they had a history together and you can see and feel the chemistry between them.

Killer:  The villain is a criminal mastermind responsible for the deaths of five people and is very determined to pin the crime on Adam.

  1. I don't want to read this book yet, simply because I need to read books 1-4! My TBR list is growing faster than I can catch up. Too many books is a good problem to have though ;)
