    Lucy Kincaid #15

    As I began to read this book I thought I had read about Lucy Kincaid before and then something I read in this book reminded me I had read of her capture and horrible experience at the hands of a sadistic man and more. I loved that book, though it was not easy to read, and realized that as this is book 15 and the last one I read in the series was book two...I have missed a LOT of Lucy’s life stories and cases.

    Lucy Kincaid #15

    As I began to read this book I thought I had read about Lucy Kincaid before and then something I read in this book reminded me I had read of her capture and horrible experience at the hands of a sadistic man and more. I loved that book, though it was not easy to read, and realized that as this is book 15 and the last one I read in the series was book two...I have missed a LOT of Lucy’s life stories and cases. Andy you know what? I didn’t need to read the books in the middle for this book to make perfect sense. I now need to find out where I can pick up the books I have missed and make sure to read them!

    This book starts with Lucy at a murder sight checking the body where it lies. She has been asked to assist the local detective, Jerry Walker, in determining who the serial murderer of three (so far) men might be. There is a lot of detecting, interviewing, brain storming, discussion and police procedure that takes place with discussion of evidence, recreation of the murders and a bit of friction between Jerry and Lucy when she wants to call in the FBI for a profile of the murderer. In addition to finding the murderer there is a second thread to this book that has to do with some orphan boys that Jesse, Lucy’s stepson, has befriended. There seems to be a back story about the boys and about Jesse that I would love to read. Anyway, I usually read the end of books first but managed not to this time and have to say it took me a LONG time to figure out who the baddie was. Even when I was beginning to tweak to who it might be I wasn’t sure if it was this one or that one and guessed wrong at first. So...good job Ms Brennan!

    Did I like this book? Definitely

    Will I read more in this series? As soon as I can!

    Thank you to NetGalley and SMP-Minotaur for the ARC – This is my honest review.

    My favorite procedural series are those, like NOTHING TO HIDE, which the can be read as standalones. I hadn’t read the previous fourteen Lucy Kincaid stories and now have the opportunity to go back to book one and learn how she came to be the woman she is in book fifteen.

    Allison Brennan’s writing kept me interested in the story and guessing the culprit(s). Lucy Kincaid fans will be excited to grab NOTHING TO HIDE as she continues her crime solving and personal journey.

    For those readers who have read any part of the Lucy Kincaid series, you will really enjoy this one. For those who haven't, don't let the number of books in this series deter you. This works easily as a stand alone. It will probably whet your appetite to go back to the beginning ... it's well worth it.

    For those readers who have read any part of the Lucy Kincaid series, you will really enjoy this one. For those who haven't, don't let the number of books in this series deter you. This works easily as a stand alone. It will probably whet your appetite to go back to the beginning ... it's well worth it.

    FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid is working with the local police in San Antonio on a case that completely has her baffled. Three bodies have been found ... no DNA .. no clues ... no evidence .... nothing ... nada.

    The only commonality among these men, other than the way they were killed, is that they are all married, seemingly happy. They all have responsible jobs, nothing in their backgrounds indicate anything criminal. They don't share churches, grocery stores, laundries, etc.

    What begins as a seemingly straightforward investigation turns into something far darker and more sinister than Lucy could have ever imagined.

    On the personal side, her stepson finds himself in harm's way when he tries to help a friend. The friend's brother is head of a drug gang, just out of prison, and wants his younger brother to join him. But there's also the initiation to get through ...........

    The story premise is a really good one. I got totally involved in the investigation, watching how Lucy takes every opportunity to question not only potential suspects, but her own instincts, as well. I like how the characters interacted .... Lucy and the local police who has no use for the FBI.... and then there's Lucy's relative new family .... a husband and a teenage stepson. All are finely drawn and credible.

    Prepare for lots of action in this page-turning crime fiction / police procedural. Extremely well-written, this will keep you riveted from the very first page.

    Many thanks to the author / St. Martin's Press Minotaur Books / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

    I have read several the Lucy Kincaid series and I am hooked. I would like to go back and catch up as this book did refer to the past somewhat. Not enough to loose the reader but enough to tease the reader to put the series on the to read shelf. Lucy a good FBI agent is working with Sheriff Jerry Walker. Having a bad experience working with the FBI on case that involved the killing of two boys, Jerry did not trust the psychological mumbo jumbo of the FBI task force that Lucy belongs too. With 3 murders and a possible one in the near future, the killer is leaving their mark. A taser, a shot to the face, and beating, 3 men with no apparent ties are found murdered. Did they know the killer? How are the 3 men related to the killer. With no known forensic evidence per se, the two must put their differences aside and work together to find the motive of the killer before they can find the killer himself.

    They begin to untangle web looking into the past of the victims and uncover each and every stone. The two working together see the value of what the other brings and start coming to conclusions that make the killer miss a step.

    Another story that interwoven with the Kincaid's case is her husbands Sean son Jessie. His background his from the other books in the series but the story adds some drama of young people in gangs and how gangs keep a hold on them. Jessie trying to do the right thing while protecting his dad and step mother. The narration gave some depth to the characters.

    All in all a good crime thriller of walking in the shoes of CSI and to listen to your gut and your dog.

    FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid is working with County Investigator Jerry Walker on a serial killer case in Nothing to Hide. Unfortunately, Jerry has a distrust of FBI psychological profiles due to an earlier case.

    The victims seem to have nothing in common besides being male, under 40 and married. The murder method is identical. Each victim stops while driving home at night, is tased, beaten including crushed hands, and finally shot in the head. The entire crime takes less than five minutes.

    FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid is working with County Investigator Jerry Walker on a serial killer case in Nothing to Hide. Unfortunately, Jerry has a distrust of FBI psychological profiles due to an earlier case.

    The victims seem to have nothing in common besides being male, under 40 and married. The murder method is identical. Each victim stops while driving home at night, is tased, beaten including crushed hands, and finally shot in the head. The entire crime takes less than five minutes.

    Concurrently, Lucy’s stepson, Jesse, is sucked into a situation while trying to help a friend. To resolve this issue, Lucy and her husband Sean must improve their communication and parenting skills.

    I love police procedurals. I enjoyed the interactions between skeptical Jerry and thinker Lucy while they were investigating the serial killer case. However, my interest was not held by the family drama portion of the book. This issue was probably caused by my lack of reading any earlier entry in this now fifteen book series.

    For series readers, Nothing to Hide probably will rate 4.5 stars. For others, who like me are jumping in here, this book rates 3.5 stars. It is definitely worth reading for the twisty mystery of the killer’s identity and motive. The writing style is fluid. The characters are well-written. Overall, the book rates 4 stars.

    Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

    I liked this one, but maybe not for the reason the author wanted readers to. While the crime was ok, I was more intrigued with Lucy working with the an officer from the Sheriff's office, Jerry. Now Jerry is a crusty curmudgeon guy, but one who is a good officer and really wants to solve his cases. You would think Lucy would work well with him, as she gets along with most people, but Jerry has a bias against working with the FBI due to a case gone bad in his past. This doesn't bode well for Lucy

You would think Lucy would work well with him, as she gets along with most people, but Jerry has a bias against working with the FBI due to a case gone bad in his past. This doesn't bode well for Lucy and much of the case they fight, argue or bicker over how to proceed. Jerry is a strict by the evidence and working the case guy, while Lucy believes in that along with contacting BSU to get a profile on the killer, which Jerry vehemently protests! By the end of the book both had respect for the other and Lucy managed to show Jerry that using the BSU guys is just another tool.

    While all of this drama with Lucy was going on Sean had his own with Jesse. Both of them were right and both were wrong. Jesse's heart was in the right place but things quickly spun out of control and he needed help. At one point there was a bit of a breakdown between Sean and Jesse, with both of them frustrated and yelling out things. This actually turned out to be a good thing, it cleared the air with them and allowed them to voice things they didn't want to admit to, which the other needed to hear.

    Sean also took a bit of a hard line with the orphan boys, but it needed to be done. They know where they stand now and hopefully if things like this come up again they will go to Sean.

    FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid is called into a case by the local San Antonio police. There is a potential serial killer on the loose. Men are being found beside the highway beaten, hands mangled and then shot to death. Lucy, with her background in psychology and experience, has been called in to work with a seasoned detective who has a definite dislike for the FBI which causes some ripples in their work relationship.

    The book started a little slow for me. It picked up around 20% (ebook) when the police procedure started. The police procedure included interviews and forensics. The author is very knowledgeable and it is evident in her writing. But once I was caught up into the story and was looking for the "big reveal" I was so disappointed. It was so anticlimactic. No "a-ha moments" or twists. I would have wished for something "more". It was just "okay". It left a lot of unanswered questions and didn't feel finished. Not what I like in my books, but may be of interest to others.

    This is my first time reading the Lucy Kincaid series (this is book #16) but I didn't find myself lost with a lot of backstory and character explanations. Actually the secondary characters were very interesting and has roused my interest in reading other books in the series.

    I will try to read this author again. She does have a smooth and concise writing style. It is easy to follow and flows well. Great character development and dialogue. I was just disappointed by the ending.

    Thank you Netgalley for this ARC in exchange for my honest review.

    It is #15 in the series. FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid is called into a case of a potential serial killer by the local San Antonio police. It was a slow book with lots of procedural explanations. There is also a sub plot of Lucy's step son and a gang.

    Why did I give this book 1 star? Because I couldn't give it zero. Lots of spoilers coming...

    For starters, the teaser on the back cover suggests this book is about a crazed gunman who takes hostages at a coffee shop. That's about 10% of the book. The rest is some boring as shit family drama involving a 13 year old kid's wish to spend his summer with his real dad. His mom married some grade A criminal who wound up turning on a drug cartel and then getting them all witness protection that they only

    For starters, the teaser on the back cover suggests this book is about a crazed gunman who takes hostages at a coffee shop. That's about 10% of the book. The rest is some boring as shit family drama involving a 13 year old kid's wish to spend his summer with his real dad. His mom married some grade A criminal who wound up turning on a drug cartel and then getting them all witness protection that they only needed for short time (really?). Then the security specialist dad and his new FBI lady wife spend 400 PAGES trying to figure out if the criminal is still a criminal and is responsible for tailing them/running them off the road/kidnapping them. If these two are ever tasked with protecting you, you should just give up. And the criminal wants the security specialist dead, and hires hit men to kill him but they kidnap him instead. Wait...what?

    The author then spends the last ten pages telling you how the shittiest corporate lawyer in the world gives up the bad guy bosses of the hostage taker.

    This book should be called nothing to read.
