Ms. Gardner is a dynamite author! Wow--couldn't put this one down. Just HAD to see what happened next.
I'm hooked on psychological thrillers (thrillers of any type to be exact!) and hooked on female leads, too. I adore "Rainie" in this book. Not only is she smart, gutsy and very attractive, she's likable, also ... a real human who tugs at our emotional heartstrings ... with a drinking problem and other human hang-ups (baggage, as they say in today's world).
Ms. Gardner certainly knows how to create characters that are realistic, characters to whom readers--with our own personal foibles--can relate.
Just wait till you see the interaction between Rainie and her estranged husband ... This book is a great mix of law enforcement types ... cops, ex-cops, profilers, Fibbies, etc.
You will love it and I guarantee you great entertanment until the last page.
