|Four women were murdered in Houston in just a couple of months. Mac Guzman is the detective in charge of this investigation. When it seems that they are not making progress in catching the killer, Mac's boss asks for help from the FBI.
Tanner Wallace is a FBI profiler assigned to help with the investigations. Between Mac and he rises an attraction that is exploited during the course of the investigation.
Borderline is a engrossing read until the moment that the murder investigation and the mystery about Tanner intersect. When we find out what is Tanner's involvement with the murders, I kind of already suspected the direction that the story was going, but even so, it was a disappointment. Mac Guzman is a detective of the Texas Rangers and is totally dedicated to his work. He has no family (he was raised by various foster families) but he has a person he considers as such. He is gay but hides his homosexuality from their colleagues for fear of repercussions it would generate if it were public knowledge. Tanner is one of the best Houston FBI profiler. Like Mac, Tanner is also dedicated to his work. In fact, the two are very similar. The story itself has its good moments and those which are not very believable. An example of one of those not very believable moments is Tanner's secret. I personally found it hard to believe that his secret could pass unnoticed as it was in the book. I imagine that when he applied for the FBI he went through a rigorous evaluation so how does he not been caught?. Overall, I liked Borderline. It was a good book.
