“Untouchable” is the latest novel by Jayne Ann Krentz. Jack Lancaster, consultant to the FBI, has always been drawn to the coldest of cold cases. As a survivor of a fire, he finds himself uniquely compelled by arson cases. His almost preternatural ability to get inside killers heads has garnered him a reputation in some circles – and complicated his personal life. The more cases he solves the closer he slips into the darkness. After particularly grisly cases, only Winter Meadows, a meditation therapist, can lead Jack back to peace – a peace that his enemy, Quinton Zane, wants to end permanently.
