STALKED had many layers and many secrets, and ​most of them were deadly.

Kidnappings, disappearances, questionable police officers, accidents involving the police involved in the case, human trafficking, and barely a clue about anything or any connection that could be found.

​STALKED was an intense but very good read.

STALKED focused on the investigation of a teenager who disappeared and led to many other issues and many suspects along with the questions of why and how.

The writing style of Ms. Heit

"If you're reading this, I'm already dead"

When the above note is found in a missing girl's bedroom, even more questions are asked by her family and the police. Now that it seems like 17 year old Haley Cook knew something bad would happen to her, and possibly who was after her, the local police call in Evelyn Baine, a profiler for the FBI.

Stalked is the fourth installment in The Profiler series, and I have to be honest, I h

Full review to come closer to pub day.

Quick thoughts:
I've read the first book in Heiter's profiler series and now the 4th book. I enjoyed this storyline much more than the debut and the character growth between books 1 & 4 makes me want to check out 2&3.

Quick read. Good mystery. Enjoyable.

STALKED by Elizabeth Heiter is far better than it should have been. I under appreciated this book from the moment I received it from Harlequin Enterprises. I assumed it would be a massive love story wound about a thriller core, but I was wrong. This is a first class crime novel, rich in detail and dripping with suspense from the opening pages.
When high school cheerleader and all-American good girl Haley Cooke disappears from her school, the local police are baffled. Her family is devastated, h

When I picked up this book I didn’t realise it was the 4th book in the Profiler series, now I’m not sure about you but I usually hate to start a book which is already part of a well established series, but I’m pleased to report it can be read as a standalone. I’m going to be honest with you here and admit that although I enjoyed Stalked it just didn’t meet my expectations. The first chapter certainly intrigued me, but as I read on this wasn’t a book that grabbed me by the throat. Don’t get me wr ...more

*My Thoughts*

Stalked, by author Elizabeth Heiter, is the fourth novel in The Profiler series. Evelyn Baine is a Special Agent & Profiler who works for the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit. She excels at her job, and has gone above and beyond her actual job description in order to solve some really dangerous cases. One could say that Evelyn has stepped in it a time or two, but her desire to do her job better than anyone is why I continue to rea

Darkly intriguing, skillfully plotted, and incredibly menacing!

In this compelling fourth installment in the Profiler series, Heiter has written a fast-paced whodunit where suspects continually crawl out of the woodwork, competition and jealous rivalry between teens runs rampant, and life on a college campus has a dark side that's not all fun and games.

The writing is effective. The characterization is spot on with the persistent and astute FBI heroine Evelyn Baine, the strong, dependabl

Stalked is a mesmerizing addition to Elizabeth Heiter's The Profiler series starring FBI Agent Evelyn Baines. Although this newest release is the fourth novel in the series, it can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend the previous installments as well.

Haley Cook is the perfect high school girl. Pretty, straight A’s, cheerleader, etc. But the last time anyone saw her was one month prior when her boyfriend Jordan dropped her off for cheerleading practice. But then her mother finds a notebook that the police missed. The first line reads, “If you are reading this, I’m already dead.” But who would want to hurt Haley?

Evelyn Baine, a FBI Profiler, is called in to investigate. It seems that there is more to Hailey’s life than you first see. It seems

I have read the Profiler series in order, Hunted, Vanished, Seized, and now Stalked. They CAN be read out of order, but the main characters are developed in Hunted, and they continue to grow throughout, so I definitely recommend starting with Hunted. I opened Stalked and was instantly sucked into a story which sounded exactly like news stories we are hearing about in our world today. I had a hard time putting it down, but I had to a few times, otherwise I would have easily finished it in about 2 ...more

The 4th book in the series does not disappoint. It is fast paced and full of twists and turns to keep the reader wanting more. I couldn't get enough...I read this book in 3 days! All books were easily understood as stand alone, but I cannot wait to read all 4 over again in succession!

This was a great thriller! The characters are driven, intense, and skilled; while the plot is a wicked blend of action, suspense, and unexpected twists that will keep you hooked until the very end. I couldn't put this book down, and although this is the fourth book in the series I found no problems reading it as a stand alone book. I can't wait to go back and read the rest of this series!

On the surface, this popular teenager seemed to have no enemies but as Evelyn digs deeper, building her profile, she discovers that maybe people around Haley have more to hide and maybe Hailey had some secrets.

Seventeen-year-old Haley has seemingly vanishes without a trace. A month later, her devastated mother, Linds, finds a hidden note in which Haley predicts her own death.

Kyle and Evelyn have been dating for six months now, but have only recently been able to go public, as in telling their employer, with their relationship. The rule restricting them is no longer an issue, which is a relief for them, but unfortunately, it's only because of Kyle's injury, one he sustained on a mission that resulted i

In this fourth book of another of my favorite series we find Evelyn called in to consult in the case of a missing teenager. Kyle is on a new squad since his injury in the last book sidelined his HRT career. He's not happy about the change, but it does put him closer to Evelyn. He and his new partner (a familiar face from a previous book) get called in on a possible human trafficking near where Evelyn is working, and that's where things get interesting. Kyle's human trafficking case may be a fals ...more

Seventeen-year old Haley Cooke had last been seen going into her school after her boyfriend dropped her off at its front doors. A month later, Haley still missing, her mother finds a note hidden in her bed frame: If you're reading this, I'm already dead. An FBI profiler is then called in to assist local police in finding Haley. The plot soon becomes more complicated with a parallel story involving a murder and possible human trafficking ring.

I have had the good fortune to read this series from the beginning. Although each book can stand alone, each book leaves you looking forward to more. This series is becoming better and better with each book. The story is told from Evelyn Blaine’s point of view. Evelyn is an FBI profiler called in when there is an abduction or someone is missing and the local police seek more help looking at the victim for answers. You are engaged from the first sentence and the suspense carries you through the b ...more

The 4th book in The Profiler Series: Amazing...

Evelyn Baine is called to profile a case. A missing teenager goes missing without a trace. But when things start taking a different route only time will tell if the teen is alive. A case her boyfriend Kyle is working on just might be related. Wait and see.

You will find yourself turning the pages and wondering what happened to Haley. It's suspenseful and you'll be surprised throughout.

Highly the STALKED as well as the rest of the Profile Series.

What a ride! Stalked has so much going on but I never felt lost or overwhelmed. Good cops, bad cops, the FBI, profiling, strong female characters, "real" male characters, kidnappings, disappearances, murder, campus life, human trafficking, suspects, plots, plots within plots, twists, turns, retwists and returns... I could go on and on. If you haven't read the earlier books in the series don't worry. Stalked can stand alone. This thriller/mystery pulls you in at the very beginning and holds your ...more

I guess I've found another series to devour. I discovered Elizabeth Heiter's Profiler series with Stalked, book #4, so I'm going to have to start at the beginning and work my way through the entire series. I love books that portray strong female characters, such as the heroine, Evelyn Blaine. Stalked drew you into the story where beloved HS student, Haley, disappears where the detective on the case, Sophia, requests the assistance of FBI to find her. Both Evelyne and Sophia stop at nothing to re ...more

Excellent!

Excellent story with multiple layers of secrets that Evelyn has to sift through before she can locate the missing high school girl. No one is telling the whole truth! Some are lying! Some are withholding important information, and some are doing everything in their power to make sure Evelyn doesn't uncover their secret! Elements of power, money, desperation, friendship, trust and love all play important part in this outstanding tale!

A story that kept me guessing until the end and characters I really like...I highly recommend Stalked.
