Synopsis:Given the opportunity, would you assume someone else's identity and leave your old life behind? A serendipitous crossing of paths between Lisa Barnes, a down-on-her-luck job seeker, and Julie Forman, a personal trainer to an Olympic hopeful, forever changes the course of both women's lives. One winds up dead and the other finds herself a fugitive, hiding behind one lie after another as a cold-blooded killer methodically hunts her. Desperately trying to stay alive, the terrified woman enlists the help of Forensic Instincts, a rogue investigative team that clandestinely operates in the gray area between legal and illegal. Safeguarding their client's deception, Forensic Instincts digs into dangerous territory as they try to find out who's after their client and why. Meanwhile, bodies are piling up in Chicago, New Jersey, and Vermont as a megalomaniacal genius will stop at nothing to eradicate anyone who threatens the success of his medical breakthrough. With an unhinged client and a monstrous criminal enterprise as its adversary, Forensic Instincts is forced into uncharted territory to protect their client and save one of their own from becoming the next corpse. Forensic Instincts is an unorthodox, criminal investigative team that carefully navigates the fine line between legal and illegal. The team consists of a behaviorist, a former Navy SEAL, a techo-wiz, an intuitive, a pickpocket, a retired FBI agent, and a human scent evidence dog."

I can remember a time before DNA testing and before forensics. Some of it is still a mystery to me. As I read through this book, I was hooked. I loved the lingo and I really enjoyed the characters. They seemed real. They swore and they had their issues. The evil genius is smart and wiling to do what it takes to be the next Einstein. It was interesting to read as the bodies piled up. I was happy that the author took us through to the end of the story. I liked the added information. It made the story feel like a drama series and I could definitely see this turning into one, especially on television. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
