I love this series about Quincy and Raine -- and this was a bone-chilling story. Excellent!
Just read this gripping suspense-filled book. L.G. writes a powerful book and keeps you on edge. She can keep you up at night so I recommend reading these during the daytime so you can get some sleep. This particular book in her series is about Rainy the ex-wife alcoholic who disappears mysteriously and is searched for by her ex. Then a little boy disappears too. Great story keeps you guessing till the end. I've stocked up on her books to continue the series.
One of the best Lisa Gardner has written. I didn't want to put it down. It keeps you guessing until the end.
Rainie's life has been going down hill quickly, too much pressure at work, cases that go from bad to worse, killing a man that needed to die, a battle with alcohol, but she is determined to pull it all together. Rainie is now a child advocate, but she definitely has met her match in her newest case.
Pierce Quincy is Rainie's husband, a former FBI profiler, he know that their marriage is on the rocks, but when Rainie's car is found abandoned with the engine running and she is no where in sight, things get bad quickly. A kidnapper has soon contacted Quincy, but the demands seems all wrong. What is going on. Together with Quincy's adult daughter, they are going to find Rainie.
Told in the various voices of the characters involved, the read soon see's a deeper plot developing. What was it in Rainie's past that has brought them all to this point. Can a child really be responsible or are they just a ploy to make Rainie pay for her choices. A past that she too, should never been part of.
Though good, this book didn't fully capture my attention. It had too much of a been there done that feel. The characters are engaging and flawed, but still something for me was missing. Maybe this was a series that I should have started at the beginning, I never really got a good feel for who the main characters really are.
I don't know that I liked this book as much as previous ones but it was a very good read. Kept you guessing until the end. This is book fifth of the ongoing Quincy-Rainie series. In order the books are:
"The Perfect Husband" intro of Pierce Quincy
"The Third Victim" intro of Rainie Conner
"The Next Accident" intro of Kimberly Quincy
"The Killing Hour" intro of Michael "Mac" McCormack
I would suggest reading these books in proper order just to understand and appreciate the dynamics of each character and their interaction with each other.
