Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Laura Griffin “delivers another top-notch thriller" (RT Book Reviews) in her beloved Tracers series, about a leading forensic anthropologist who uncovers eerie clues in a high-stakes case that threatens to deliver her to the doorstep of a cold-blooded murderer. 

When local rock climbers stumble upon abandoned human bones in a remote Texas gorge, Sara Lockhart is the first to get the call. She has a reputation as one of the nation’s top forensic anthropologists, and Police Detective Nolan Hess knows she is just the expert he needs to help unravel this case. Although evidence is scarce, Nolan suspects the bones belong to a teenage climber who vanished last summer.

But as Sara unearths strange clues, she finds chilling similarities to a case from her past - a case that now threatens to rock Nolan’s community. While Sara digs deep for answers, the stakes rise higher as another young woman disappears without a trace. Investigators work against the clock as Sara races to discover the truth, even if her harrowing search brings her face-to-face with a stone-cold killer.

With her signature breathless pacing and suspenseful twists and turns, Stone Cold Heart demonstrates why “Laura Griffin never fails to put me on the edge of my seat” (USA Today).

Good story, okay narration

I enjoyed reading this one, another good addition to the whole series. Plot and twists well mapped out, and romance solid...it was actually quite nice to read one where the guy was determined, but very patient, willing to give the relationship the time it needed to progress. a real man without being macho. in audio, narrator brought it down for me. she is not terrible, and does good differentiation between characters, but does tend to over act, and her Male voices, while Male, just don't suit the characters, maybe a little old/senior sounding? I think I will give any future ones read by her a miss until new narrator tried.

Story grabbed me from the beginning

3.5 Stars

Laura Griffin writes addictive crime procedurals with a nice bit of romance, and I’m always excited to crack open one of her mysteries! Stone Cold Heart grabbed me from the beginning, eager for every discovery, on the edge of my seat anticipating what bit of danger Sara and Nolan would stumble across next!

While I liked Sara and admired her skills and determination in the case, she did frustrate me a little bit by jumping into a couple of situations alone, even though they were clearly dangerous. She did take the precaution of phoning others to let them know her whereabouts and what was going on, so she didn’t completely venture into TSTL territory, thankfully!

Sara was the one to put the brakes on any relationship, but she couldn’t fight the pull she felt with Nolan, and I knew it was a matter of when, not if these two would happen. Nolan was a dream and I appreciated he didn’t push the romance, and wasn’t discouraged by Sara’s skittishness, he just stuck by and let things happen organically.

I would’ve loved to sit and read Stone Cold Heart in one sitting, it’s the kind of thrilling story to suck you in with a need to know what happens next!

I enjoyed Tavia Gilbert’s narration of both the male and female characters.

Had to give up

I’m afraid I found the narrator really difficult to listen to and she changed voices for the characters. I may try again but just found it really distracting - sorry 😢
