New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin “delivers the goods” (Publishers Weekly) again with this gripping, “spellbinding” (Fresh Fiction) thriller full of twists and turns—the twelfth in her bestselling Tracers series.
When crime scene investigator Brooke Porter arrives at the home of a murdered woman, the only thing more shocking than the carnage is the evidence that someone escaped the scene. But where is this witness now? A thorough search of the area yields more questions than answers, and before Brooke even packs up her evidence kit, she’s made it her goal to find the witness and get them out of harm’s way.
Homicide detective Sean Byrne has seen his share of bloody crime scenes, but this one is particularly disturbing, especially because Brooke Porter is smack in the middle of it. Sean has had his eye on the sexy CSI for months, and he’s determined to help her with her current case—even if it means putting his attraction on hold so he and Brooke can track down a murderer. But as the investigation—and their relationship—heats up, Sean realizes that keeping his work and his personal life separate is more complicated than he ever imagined; especially when the killer sets his sights on Brooke.
With Griffin’s signature “fully fleshed characters, dry humor, and tight plotting” (Publishers Weekly), Touch of Red demonstrates why she is one of the most acclaimed and popular authors of sexy thrillers today.
Laura Griffin is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than twenty books. She is a two-time RITA Award winner (for the books Scorched and Whisper of Warning) as well as the recipient of the Daphne du Maurier Award (for Untraceable).

This book opens with a horrifying murder that left me with chills and the urge to check my locks!
CSI Brooke Porter discovers disturbing evidence that a child may have witnessed the killer and could now be in grave danger. She presses the detective in charge of the case, Sean Byrne, to find the child before it’s too late.
Sean is under pressure to solve the murder and find their key witness, a child, before the killer strikes again. And his job isn’t made easier when the sexy crime scene investigator he’s been attracted to for months gets in the way of his investigation.
Sean and Brooke must race against time to stop a killer intent on erasing his tracks before someone else dies.
This is a fast-paced read I found impossible to put down! The Tracer series is set around the Delphi Centre, a top-notch forensics lab. Each book can easily be read as a standalone, but once you read one you’ll want to buy them all!
I give Touch of Red 5+ lovely kisses- A must read!
