RIGHT BEHIND YOU                                      LISA GARDNER

Eight years ago, Sharlah May Nash’s older brother beat their drunken father to death with a baseball bat in order to save both of their lives. Now thirteen years old, Sharlah has finally moved on. About to be adopted by retired FBI profiler Pierce Quincy and his partner, Rainie Conner, Sharlah loves one thing best about her new family: They are all experts on monsters.

Is he a killer?

Then the call comes in. A double murder at a local gas station, followed by reports of an armed suspect shooting his way through the wilds of Oregon. As Quincy and Rainie race to assist, they are forced to confront mounting evidence: The shooter may very well be Sharlah’s older brother, Telly Ray Nash, and it appears his killing spree has only just begun. 

All she knows for sure: He’s back.

As the clock winds down on a massive hunt for Telly, Quincy and Rainie must answer two critical questions: Why after eight years has this young man started killing again? And what does this mean for Sharlah? Once upon a time, Sharlah’s big brother saved her life. Now, she has two questions of her own: Is her brother a hero or a killer? And how much will it cost her new family before they learn the final, shattering truth? Because as Sharlah knows all too well, the biggest danger is the one standing right behind you.


This is my first time reading a Quince and Rainie book. I was not disappointed at all. A very good mystery as to who and why? Why would someone after eight years just start killing again? They don’t look at all of the evidence like most law enforcement. With a different set of eyes and their minds they come up with other scenarios, not everyone agrees, but they have their reasons for looking at this picture differently. I cannot go into too much detail or I might give it away, and I don’t want to do that. This is a very powerful book about families, having one and wanting to adopt. There are also a few scenes of abuse but it actually goes with the story and is explained throughout the book. All of the characters are full of emotion and depth, even Quince and Rainie who have overcome the tragedies from the other books. This a very good book. I got this book from netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
