Publisher's Summary

New York Times best seller

A desperate manhunt ensues for a killer who preys upon his victims’ minds — just before he claims their lives — in this blockbuster novel from number one best-selling author Lisa Gardner.

What do you do when a killer targets the people you love the most? When he knows how to make them vulnerable? When he knows the same about you?

These are the questions that haunt FBI Special Agent Pierce Quincy. The police say his daughter’s death was an accident. Quincy will risk everything to learn the truth — and there’s only one person willing to help. Ex-cop Rainie Connor had once been paired professionally — and personally — with the brilliant FBI profiler. He helped her through the darkest days of her life.

Now it’s time for Rainie to return the favor. But this killer is like none these two hard-boiled pros have ever encountered. This twisted psychopath has an insatiable hunger for revenge...and for fear. As the clock ticks down to one unspeakably intimate act of vengeance, the only way Rainie can unmask this killer is to step directly in his murderous path. She will become a murder waiting to happen. She will be...the next accident.

I’m a little confused?

As i was listening to this book, it struck me that i’ve already heard this book. I’m not sure why this is released again by a different narrator. I had to go back, but this book is already available on audible. 🤷🏻‍♀️ The book and series itself was good, that why i didn’t think twice about pre-ordering it.

Bait & Switch

I was so excited for a new Lisa Gardner novel. A moment later, so disappointed. This novel was released in 2001. New audio release in 2020 was a weak way to say “new.” I have never encountered this on audible, I was saddened by this reality.

This is not new

I kept thinking I’d already heard this but I continued listening to make sure. Turns out I had, it’s a great book but had I known, I wouldn’t have used a credit on it.

A 2001 book!

The book was great even though I had heard it before on Books on Tape. I think it’s kind of tricky to tout it as a NEW book by Lisa Gardner when it was published in 2001. But still a good book.

Deceptive marketing

Lisa G is one of my favorite artists. I wait with anticipation for her next release. I was excited to see a new audio book billed as being released to n 2020. Which it was but the book was written in 2001. Disappointing

Great...except

The story grabbed me. True thriller! However, I was disappointed with narrator. I can’t put my finger on it. Her intonation, the voice itself. Unfortunately, for me, I won’t listen to a book that she narrates.

Not one of Lisa Gardner's best

I love Lisa Gardner, but this book was not up to her usual writing standards. The story started out very slow. I almost returned the book. I persevered and it got better with some good twists and turns. It was just okay overall.

Disappointing

If you enjoy D.D. Warren and Flora Dane books by Lisa Gardner, this book is nothing like those. It is boring, moves slow, and just is not that interesting. I was so excited for a new thriller and this was less than thrilling.
