"A one-woman private operative, Abby Sinclair stalks the stalkers. Her new client is a U.S. congressman shadowed by a mystery woman believed to be a disgruntled ex-employee. He wants her stopped. What Abby doesn't know is that FBI agent Tess McCallum is already on the case. Now, despite vowing never to work together again, Abby and Tess have been partnered in a deadly game. And this is a case that takes one surprising turn after another-because there's more to the story than anyone knows.

The problem I had with the last book by this author was that from the beginning I knew who the villain was, the author made it clue very early on. I didn't find the characters or the story very interesting and it seemed as if the author didn't care about those things either. This book started out with the same set-up, the villain is established early, but the character that sets out to bring him down is very interesting. Her name is Abby and she stalks stalkers for a fee. She is manic, has socio ...more

Interesting cast of characters - including the two leading female detectives, who, as far as I can tell, are both rather unappealing people, though talented at their job. One is a neurotic and violent step-removed-from-a-criminal, and the other is a dishonest and untrustworthy paranoid. Strange couple for a pretty standard thriller. Greedy evil politicians, ex-con druggie bikers, a woman imprisoned for infanticide...the litany of charmers never stop.

Strangely enouogh, the book is intriguing and

Mortal Thoughts (McCallum & Sinclair book 2)

Prescott brings Tess and Abby back working together to solve a twenty year old murder and to help an innocent woman get her life back. Both Tess and Abby come close to losing everything, including their lives before the truth comes out near the end. Thanks for another great read. You won't want to put this book down.

I like the Abby Sinclair series, she is a great heroine that I find easy to relate to. Always up against some sick twisted creep, and sometimes a bit more graphic than I care for, but exciting and a page turner as well.

oh boy, is Abby loosing it? did she kill the hitman..... you'll have to read to find out. The dynamic between Tess & Abby is very well thought out. Really enjoyed this one, didn't think it was the ending it was either, very well done.

Abby, my new hero, is amazing. She weaves a fine line between getting the bad guy and being taken over by evil. Tess struggles being a true friend and a needy self centered Fed. I couldn't wait to move onto the next book in the series with Abby as the main character.

I must say I'm loving the Abby Sinclair & Tess McCallum characters. I can't wait to read more with those two. Fantastic story.

I loved this book. It did seem this was the second in a series, though, so I think I'm going to search for the first!

This was the best in the series so far. Teaming up Tess with Abby makes it much more interesting since they tackle catching the bad guys from opposite perspectives. Looking forward to Final Sins.

Good mix of action, introspection, character development and dialog. Good story and pacing. No that of literature bogging down the story.

Again, I made the mistake of picking up a book and not realizing it's not the first in the series. I enjoyed this book, but it was a bit long. I will probably pick up the first few books.

Intense, exciting, and interesting. Tess and Abby are back, reluctantly working together. It may be a bit unbelievable how the whole mess turns out, but still totally enjoyable to read.
