Crime Fiction Alphabet (A) Andrea Kane

Go to Kerrie's blog, Mysteries in Paradise for more information on how to participate in this meme.

Your post MUST be related to either the first letter of a book's title, the first letter of an author's first name, or the first letter of the author's surname, or even maybe a crime fiction "topic". But above all, it has to be crime fiction.

So you see you have lots of choice.

You could write a review, or a bio of an author, so long as it fits the rules somehow.
(It is ok too to skip a week.)

You probably won't have to do a lot of extra reading in order to participate, but I warn you that your TBR may grow as a result of the suggestions other participants make.

My choice this week is Andrea Kane. Her newest will be published June 26, 2012

Summary and Bio from NetGalley



Each day is a struggle for Amanda Gleason’s newborn son as he battles a rare immune deficiency. Justin’s best chance for a cure lies with his father, who was brutally murdered before Amanda even realized she carried his child.

Or was he?

One emailed photo changes everything, planting a seed of doubt that Amanda latches on to for dear life: a recent photo of a man who looks exactly like Paul. Could Justin’s father be alive? The mother in her is desperate to find out. But tracking down a ghost when every second counts is not for amateurs.

Forensic Instincts is the one team up for the challenge.

A behaviorist. A former navy SEAL. A technowizard. An intuitive. A retired FBI agent. A human scent-evidence dog. Together they achieve the impossible, pushing ethical and legal boundaries whenever the ends justify the means.

The manhunt is on for the elusive father. Yet the further FI digs into his past, the more questions are raised about whether the man Amanda fell in love with ever really existed at all.

Dark secrets. Carefully crafted lies. From the congressional halls of Washington, D.C., to exclusive Hamptons manors, there are ruthless people who would stop at nothing to make Forensic Instincts forget about the man Amanda desperately needs to find.

Little do they realize that once Forensic Instincts takes the case, nothing will stop them from uncovering the shocking truth that transcends The Line Between Here and Gone.

About the author:

ANDREA KANE’s psychological thriller The Girl Who Disappeared Twice became an instant New York Times bestseller, the latest in a long string of smash hits. It introduced Forensic Instincts, an eclectic team of maverick investigators, each with different personalities and talents, all with one common bond: a blatant disregard for authority. The Line Between Here and Gone is the next exhilarating installment in the Forensic Instincts series. Armed with skills and talents honed by years in the FBI and Special Forces and training in behavioral and forensic psychology, the team solves seemingly impossible cases while walking a fine line between assisting and enraging law enforcement.

With a worldwide following and novels published in more than twenty languages, Kane is also the author of eight romantic thrillers and fourteen historical romances. She lives in New Jersey with her family, where she is plotting new ways for Forensic Instincts to challenge the status quo.

My review of The Girl who Disappeared Twice  - We meet the Forensic Instincts team and her newest book is about them, fantastic.......


  1. Whoa, sounds like a great set of books. Thanks for the review.

  2. Will definitely be watching for her new book next month!

  3. The Line Between Here and Now is in my TBR pile so we will have to compare notes.

  4. Clarissa, I have enjoyed the 3 books I have read by her, a favourite of mine in the genre.

    Nise and Cheryl, I recommend reading the other also if you read her new one.

  5. Nice to meet you, Marce.
    Kane's books sound like the kind of fast paced reads I like.

  6. Hello Mace, thanks for the overview as it does sound intriguing and the sort of thing that might make a very good TV series too perhaps. Kane isn't an author I've read before so I'll keep an eye out - and as you say, this challenge can play havoc with one's TBR pile!

  7. Sounds like an intense thriller series--not my usual cup of tea (ha!), but they do sound good. Thanks for stopping by my Crime Alphabet entry--and the kind words about my sense of humor. :-)

  8. A nice overview of an author I am not familiar with. Maybe more thrilling than the type I usually read but lately I have learned to be open to all kinds of mysteries. I will keep an eye out for her books at my annual book sale.

  9. Never read anything by Kane but Sounds like something I would enjoy. Will be looking out for her books. Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Always looking for a new thriller book to read and a series even better. Great reviews :) Thanks!
