Writers Kathy Reichs and Steve Berry could take a note from Allison Brennan's pages: How to keep a series going without it becoming stupid and boring.

In the latest Lucy Kincaid adventure, we find Lucy at the beginning of her training at Quantico. If you've been reading the series, you will know that Lucy's first FBI application was denied, but she was admitted on her second one. Lucy's enjoying her time with her training class, but she knows that she is being watched because of her past (kidnap...more
A new trainee at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Lucy Kincaid has already seen more than her share of murder and mayhem. Still reeling from the sex-crime case that sealed her reputation, she’s found a true friend and mentor in Agent Tony Presidio. No matter what goes down at the Bureau, Tony’s got her back—until he’s called to New York to help investigate the murder of a reporter with ties to Lucy.

Lucy seeks the help of her boyfriend, private investigator Sean Rogan, to help put together the puzzle...more
Definitely the best Lucy Kincaid novel yet-- Lucy and Sean have really come into their own and grown as characters and as a couple, the supporting cast is spot on, and the socio/psychopath(s) du jour are perfectly believable and chilling. The writing is incredibly tight and the pacing fast: you won't want to put it down! Interspersing the first-person POV chapters in reverse chronology with the regular third-person omniscient narrative is an excellent touch, providing great personal insight into...more
This story is mostly a police procedure involving FBI Agents and a detective from NYPD, with PI's Sean and Patrick who add their own expertise skills and Lucy's knowledge of criminal psychology to work as a team when a true crime author is murdered in NY. It resurfaces on old case from 15 years earlier in which this author had written a book about. The book revolved around the kidnap, raped and murdered of 11 year old Rachel McMahon and her family. Someone is out for vengeance against all those...more
I am not sure how I feel about Stalked other than I enjoyed it. Some of the usual things that I dread in romantic suspense didn't show up but some of these plotlines/character dev specific to Brennan's characters that I thought were over reared their ugly heads. It's six of one, half dozen of the other, so I am cutting it even with the three stars since I can't rate 2.5 and the book is better than a 2.

I read other GR reviews before writing my own, which is not something I usually do but I was b...more

Allison Brennan is one of my all time favourite authors. I have read all the stories of the Kincaid family & I must say this would have to be one of my all time favourites. Once i started it, I could not put it down & just had to finish it down (all within 24 hrs)!

For those unsure of the storyline, Lucy Kincaid has recently been accepted to train as an FBI recruit. Her relationship with Sean Rogan is still going strong but despite the support from her mentors & her partner's she feel...more
In the fifth installment of the Lucy Kincaid series, we're introduced to the world of FBI training in Quantico. It all started with a reporter's murder in New York City, a connection to an old case, and takes us back and forth to both places. When Lucy Kincaid's name pops up to connection to the murder, she's been reeled in to help with the case. Meanwhile, while she's still undergoing vigorous training as a FBI trainee, someone's making her nervous and has it in for her, while someone's targeti...more
A suspenseful investigative thriller about finding the truth, refusing to be a victim, and controlling your fear. There are a lot of characters and relationships; a steady build-up to a chase, a kidnapping, a shoot-out, and an emotional confrontation; and a strong romance between Lucy and Sean.
Cheryl Karkoff
This book was just OK. There were too many characters and this made it confusing at times.
Allison Brennan never disappoints.

I am addicted to the paranormal genres, but after reading J.D. Robb's great Romantic Mystery series, I decided to check out more series in the genre. Now I am a card carrying fan of Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner and most recently of Allison Brennan.

I had read Brennan's Paranormal series, but in the Procedural Thriller is where she shines as an author. Not only in the Criminal aspects but also in the interpersonal rel...more
Lucy Kincaid is now at Quantico training to be an FBI agent. Like Kate Scarpetta, there is some secret plot against Lucy that I don’t get. Men all around Lucy fall over themselves to “save” Lucy. Don’t get that either. Lucy is an emotional mess and she is training for the FBI. Hmmm. She is supposed to be an amazing investigator and psychologist, really don’t see that either. Seems like every novel I read where a woman is either training for or is in the FBI, she is a psychological shipwreck wait...more
I always love a Lucy Kincaid book, and this one was no exception! In fact, I think this might be one of my favourites of the series thus far.

Lucy is now at the FBI Academy, and is also well on her way to overcoming the fears that have plagued her since being attacked years ago.

There was so much happening in this story, between the flashbacks, Lucy at Quantico, FBI agent Suzanne Madeaux in New York, plus Sean doing what he does best, there was never a dull moment! There were so many different st...more
I was confused at the start of this one, I think it is because I listened to the book instead of read it and I didn't get some of the flipping back and forth between the past and the present. Once I did I felt for the kids and what happened to them in the past and worried that it colored their actions in the present. Turns out I did and didn't have to worry about it.

I hate that Peter had to live most of his life the way that he did, hated that he seemed stuck, and hated that he had to hide. I w...more

Blog rating: A-

Lucy has started her FBI training at Quantico and she’s determined to make it through. She’s making friends in her class of new recruits, she’s being challenged by her trainers, but one instructor seems to have it out for not only Lucy but her sister-in-law Kate as well. As if that stress wasn’t enough, Lucy is pulled into a current investigation that goes back years to a young girl’s rape and murder. Authorities and people who worked close...more
I loved this book!

Allison Brennan is one of the best mystery-suspense-thriller authors writing today! I have been a big fan of her books since I read my first, THE PREY. I have read all of them (in order :) just because I have to*) and STALKED ranks among my favorites.

STALKED grabs the reader from the start and keeps you on the "edge of your seat" --chapter after chapter. I didn’t want to put it down which earned me some frowns from my family over the recent holiday.

She is a master storytelle...more
Stalked was filled with lots of twists and turns...and it took me awhile to figure out whodunit. Enjoyed the premise (someone is stalking Peter, a young man whose sister was raped/murdered a decade ago)and the pacing was good for the most part. I've only read two books in this series, but I'm already tired of the rehashing of the back story and Lucy oftentimes comes off as insecure, weak and whiny. And, then there are those times when she seems to lack common sense...although she's very book sma...more
I'll start by saying Stalked was a very interesting and good book overall. I don't believe I've read anything by Allison Brennan until this one and I was pleasantly surprised to find it very inviting like books from authors such as Johansan, Jackson, Hoag, Gardner. I loved the character Lucy as well as her boyfriend. It seemed like its never a dull moment in their lives which makes me want to check out other stories with them involved. I only recently discovered Brennan's books when I decided to...more

Lucy is in training to be an FBI agent, but that doesn't stop her being involved in a murder case. An author was killed who had written a book regarding a case Lucy worked on years ago..

As with many books, you have to suspend your belief in reality a bit in the access/trust/assignments given to Lucy, but that aside...

still a good book with some unexpected twists and turns.

Since I'm reading these in order, onto to Stolen #6 (skipping 5.5 an overpriced 1.99 97 page short story called Reckless)

I'm not really into thrillers but the book cover caught my eye. The book was beautifully written. Allison was able to keep me guessing until the very end. The way she portrayed Lucy Kincaid left me awake last night. And oh my gosh did she make Sean hot. The relationships if all the characters are surprising and refreshing. What I didn't like was that the killers didn't really seem relevant until the end. It just seemed that she mentioned why they killed but I had to go back to the beginning of t...more
Melanie Chabrol-
Fantastic! New trainee at the FBI academy is training at Quantico. With all of Lucy Kincaid having a not so very nice past and fears, she is determined to pass and fight law and order and justice. She found a true friend Tony at the agency who was also her mentor. He asked for her help and to come in a day to report with him Lucy has found him dead.

Suddenly there are several other murders turning up all over the states, is it connected, whose jurisdiction is it... every time they dig deeper some...more
Sometimes it was hard to keep straight all the characters, but I did start with the 5th in a series. Good plot. The story held my interest. Not edge-of-your-seat but good.

A couple of quick things from a native NYer (born and raised in Brooklyn) there is no "East Brooklyn," it's called East New York and public schools especially the ones in poorer neighborhoods like East New York do NOT have central air conditioning. I went to public school and I currently teach in a public school.

Overall the book moved slow. Way to many characters not enough character development (I have no idea what Lucy looks like and she's the main character). I know this is book #5 in the se...more
Love Lucy & Sean!
Jan 11, 2014 mirta rated it 3 of 5 stars
Recommends it for: people who are reading her series of books
another one of her very far fetched and not very convincing stories.
she made a significant improvement since early books, notable reduction of porn but killed animals aren't missing from this one either.
i appreciate lack of sickly sweet "romance" but the good and bad guys and also all others than protagonists which we know from before were poorly characterised and we don't get to care at all what happens, only why.
my expectations were much higher but oh well, it was an average read. don't expect...more

Not a bad story, but too many cheesy lines and stilted language. The problem is I want good thrillers/mysteries that are superbly written -- not always easy to find. Thank goodness for Karin Slaughter and Lisa Gardner and Louise Penny!
I like all of the books in this series. I enjoyed the focus on Lucy and Sean which are favorite characters of mine. The story is well paced and I was surprised by the Who in Who-dun-it? A great read, I recommend the series, but I think this is fine as a stand alone if you're not particular about reading this type of series out of order (Book has interconnecting characters, but not a continuous plot that stars 100 books before this one)
I really liked this book. There is Lucy's story and then there's another involving a case from 15 years prior with one of the main characters from that event telling his side in first person. He is the one who is being stalked, not Lucy. Then we see how the events surrounding Lucy and her people at the FBI interact with the event of the man being stalked. I though this was clever, it made the mystery more interesting.
Lucy & Sean are enjoyable as always. I really really like their relationship and how good they are together.This one wasn't my favourtie but only because I felt that Lucy was less instrumental to working and solving the case than usual. There were so many other competant FBI/invetigators and we got snippets of stories from all there perspectives that for me there wasn't enough time with Lucy.
