Untouchable by Jayne Ann Krentz - ARC Review

A man's quest to find answers for those who are haunted by the past leads him deeper into the shadows in this electrifying novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Promise Not to Tell.

Quinton Zane is back.

Jack Lancaster, consultant to the FBI, has always been drawn to the coldest of cold cases, the kind that law enforcement either considers unsolvable or else has chalked up to accidents or suicides. As a survivor of a fire, he finds himself uniquely compelled by arson cases. His almost preternatural ability to get inside the killer's head has garnered him a reputation in some circles--and complicated his personal life. The more cases Jack solves, the closer he slips into the darkness. His only solace is Winter Meadows, a meditation therapist. After particularly grisly cases, Winter can lead Jack back to peace.

But as long as Quinton Zane is alive, Jack will not be at peace for long. Having solidified his position as the power behind the throne of his biological family's hedge fund, Zane sets out to get rid of Anson Salinas's foster sons, starting with Jack.

Jayne Ann Krentz is one of those authors I know I am going to enjoy.  I don't need the blurb, or the cover, or even an idea as to who the book will feature to know that I am going to want to read it.

Jack and Winter's story is no different.  I enjoyed it, I liked the characters, I liked the resolution of the story of the boys rescued from the cult.  And, I loved the quirky nature of the characters.

I think, of all of the things I like about this author, the quirkiness of the characters is what I love the most.  They are nerds, or a little awkward, or a little unsure of themselves, so they are even more approachable as characters, and they draw you in.

Telling too much about what happens in this one is a little spoiler-y, so I am going to say I enjoyed this, the characters, the appearance of one of my favorite characters who has been in other books...and I just appreciated the enjoyment of the story of this book.

I recommend this title.
