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

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
Nov 01, 2012 Cris rated it it was amazing
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

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

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

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

Another good Lucy Kincaid mystery. Lucy is finally at Quantico going through recruit training when a reporter is killed in New York. The reporter was writing a story about a past killer that Lucy caught. Lucy and Sean are asked to assist. When more people are killed, they need to find the common link in order to find the suspect. This has lots of twists and turns and takes the reader back and forth between New York and Washington. I like that it included characters from earlier in the series.

This one was probably more like a one-star for me, but, it's not that it was terrible. I'm not sure what the issue really was, but, I just couldn't get into it. Was it because there were too many characters? Was it because this is a book in a series and I hadn't read any other books in the series, thus, was unfamiliar with the key players and backstories? Was it because there wasn't much about the characters to care about or get invested in? Or, was it simply that the storyline was kind of ho-hu ...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.

I put this book down around the 30% mark. Lucy was in the middle of another personal pity party. She had finally gained entrance as a recruit at Quantico but discovered Hans Vigo had pulled strings and overruled others on the selection committee to give her the opportunity to become an FBI Special Agent.

Tired of the pity parties regarding her past and present, I decided I needed to take a break from Ms. Kincaid and read something else.

Okay, with the mini novels we are now 8 books in. Lucy is still too broken. I have read other books where the main character's tragic background has given them strength. Lucy instead of her being able to sense people being like a spidey-sense it makes her freeze, lose focus, and mess up. In reality I understand it takes people a long time to heal from something like what Lucy went through. But, this is are novels, I want a hero. So, I agree with the character of McLaughlin, her training should b ...more

As usual a fast read, true page-turner.
A little romance, but not too much, one side-story-romance was a bit much for me, but it is not cleat, how it will play out in the next books (Suzanne/Joe). One short non-kinky (read boring) sex-scene.
The books is up-to-date with tech like surveillance and computers, does not go too much into details but never feels invented or over-top.
No real twists.
Still, I like the style, and recommend it to fans of the series and the writer. Should finish other books f

This is where the series really comes together. There is no unnecessary relationship drama, so it really feels like the series is ready to completely focus on the most interesting part: the mysteries. The one in this book is really a rather good one. I can honestly say that I did not see the conclusion coming at all. The narration was also a nice change of pace, because it was nice not getting the killer's POV. The continuing story from the rest of the series shows up here, and they tie up a lot ...more

Audible version - this was number 5 in the Lucy Kincaid series. Lucy has finally made it into the FBI training academy but one of her trainers lets the cat out of the bag that Lucy failed both interviews for admittance and strings had to be pulled to get her in. Then the people who most respect her and that she can trust, start having fatal and almost fatal accidents and Kate (sister-in-law) turns against Lucy. There's a killer inside Quantico and seems to be taking their revenge against Lucy. T ...more

I recently reviewed the book 'Love Me to Death' by Allison Brennan. I liked it so much so I threw myself over the rest of the books in the series (Kiss Me Kill Me, If I Should Die, Silenced, Stalked, Reckless and Stolen). The books are just soooo good I can't stop reading. The stories are absolutely fantastic, so thrilling with many different layers and I can't remember when I read such suspense novels last. Maybe the books of Henning Mankell can match. There you also have a story and a suspense ...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

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

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

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.

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

'Stalked' by Allison Brennan was a gripping, suspenseful crime story with believable characters, some unbelievable coincidences, and lots of detecting work. It is evidently the fifth in a series about the lead character Lucy Kincaid, but it didn't matter that I hadn't the read any of the others. A couldn't-put-down weekend read. But it could have done with a good edit; I didn't need to know every time her sister-in-law Kate was mentioned that she was ' a cybercrime instructor at Quantico'.

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)

This is another thrilling Lucy Kincaid novel. She is pulled out of her FBI training classes to help stop the person who has been killing police and anyone else connected to a killing of a young girl years ago. Lucy and her family and friends are once again wonderful to follow. She battles her way through her own demons and people who want to stop her to come out on top with Sean's help.

I liked this book, although to be honest I did get lost or confused sometimes in the book. I eventually realized the point of view was changing throughout the characters. I was shocked a few times while reading this book, and while I enjoyed reading it, I'm not sure if I can handle waiting to find out who did it, in any mystery book.

Another good book by Allison Brennan.

In this book Lucy Kincaid is going through her training at Quantico. As usual, there is murder and mayhem and Lucy's expertise as a profiler is needed.

She and Shaun help to solve the attempted murders of FBI agents, and the impact long ago murders of two young girls has on the present.

I love reading this series to see what my "friends" are up to! The character development in this series has been so good, that I can picture each of the characters and consider them "friends" This one is a thriller, read in one lazy day at the pool it keeps you reading and definitely has twists and turns.
