Description

New York Times best-selling author Lisa Gardner has won critical and popular acclaim for writing riveting, nail-biting novels of suspense. Her stories are all the more disturbing because they seem to leap straight from today's newspaper headlines. Officer Rainie Conner is leading her first homicide investigation, a school shooting. The police chief's 13-year-old son is the prime suspect, but Rainie doesn't believe he pulled the trigger. With the help of FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, she races to uncover the truth. But a ruthless killer watches from the shadows--and lives to destroy her as he has destroyed her peaceful little Oregon community. Narrator C.J. Critt keeps adrenaline levels high as she reveals layer after layer of intrigue. A school shooting is horrifying in itself, but the thought of the menacing presence behind the shooting, the madman who savors the act of murder, is sure to keep listeners awake at night.

Professional reviews

"Officer Rainie Conner is heading up her first homicide investigation, a school shooting in a middle school. Highly suspect are the police chief's son and other locals, most of them known by Rainie. As an FBI profiler and a homicide detective are brought in to help solve the case, the listener might well wind up caring more about the characters' private lives than the investigation. C.J. Critt reads in a deliberate manner, often a little too slowly and with little variation in tempo, and while she gives each character a unique voice, some are more convincing than others. Critt also tends to use too much inflection, making many sentences sound like questions. The performance picks up tempo as the story gets more interesting, but weak plot elements and wordy writing are combined with a sub-par performance add up to a mediocre effort. S.S.R.
