New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin “delivers the goods” (Publishers Weekly) again with the eleventh title in the gritty, heart-pounding Tracers series.
When a lakeside tryst ends in a double murder, police detective Daniele Harper arrives on the scene determined to get answers. Clues are everywhere, but nothing adds up. Dani turns to the Delphi Center crime lab for help, but soon regrets it when her secret attraction to their chief firearms examiner threatens to distract her from the most important case of her career.
As a ballistics expert and former Navy SEAL, Scott Black knows firearms, and he knows he can help Dani unravel her case. Scott has managed to hide his interest in his best friend’s younger sister for years, but when her investigation brings them together, the sparks between them quickly burn out of control. Scott resolves to keep his hands off Dani and his eyes on the goal—identifying a killer. But when that killer zeroes in on her, all bets are off. There isn’t a line Scott won’t cross to convince Dani to trust him so that he can help her take down a ruthless murderer who has her in his sights.

Number eleven in the much-loved Tracer series by award winning author Laura Griffin, At Close Range is ammunition expert Scott Black’s story and I was so excited to see it come out!
Scott has been a secondary character in previous Tracer books as a ballistic specialist in the world renowned Delphi Centre, a forensics lab. He has known Dani since they were children, and is best friends with her brother. He hasn’t had an easy life and values his relationship with the Harper family. So when a Christmas party ends in a drunken kiss between Scott and Dani, they try to pretend it never happened, but neither can forget their attraction. The chemistry between these two practically set my Kindle on fire!
The suspense starts right from the first couple of pages with a frightening double homicide. Dani is given lead on the case, her first, so the pressure is on to prove herself to her peers. When suspicion falls on Scott she has to fight her instinct to protect him and do her job.
The danger increases throughout the story and has a surprise ending you won’t want to miss!
I give At Close Range 5 lovely kisses- A highly recommended read!
