Publisher's Summary

In 1989, a school bus filled with young children disappears. It drove into a tunnel, a tunnel with no exits, and did not drive out. Witnesses saw the bus go in. No one saw it come out. It vanished into thin air as a community panics. Everyone panics.

Everyone except for a 24-year-old college dropout named Jacob Thorne.

In 2004, three people are brutally murdered, two of them in a sealed panic room, a room locked from the inside. The only trace evidence is a single hair from the suspect. A suspect that has been dead for three months, killed by the same people who were just murdered in the panic room. Everyone is convinced a ghost has come back from the grave to avenge a murder.

Everyone, that is, except for a young DC homicide detective suffering from PTSD named Emma Kane.

To be a profiler, it takes more than just research and hard work. It takes more than simply brains. It takes...talent. And you need to have it from the very beginning. Talents - An Emma Kane/Jacob Thorne thriller. An origin story of two very unique people.

Didn’t care too much for this book

I don’t know if I liked this story. It felt like two different stories meshed into one book. I didn’t particularly care for the authors message to readers at the beginning. His way of stating that using profanity and law enforcement goes hand in hand are not correct. I’m a female in law enforcement and all my female coworkers don’t curse the way Kane does or condone the language. Although both stories were good on their own I still think that it could’ve been foreshadowed throughout the previous stories or made completely into two separate books. I guess I really didn’t need a back story because both characters Thorne and Kane acted exactly the same. We really didn’t see a growth in either characters. I thought Thorne was a lot more interesting than Kane. And that Kane picked more than a bad habit from his father.

Love these characters, love this author

This is my third book by this author and the third book in the series. It felt strange to have a "prequel" but it explained a lot. I'd love to see another prequel for Jacob ....... please?

I found the language a bit restrained compared to the previous books but I suppose the Jacob and Emma were younger and finding their personalities.

The surprise find was Ty. I loved his potential and the story of his "O" face had me laughing out loud.

All in all, well worth the investment of time.... a great book !
