Very suspenseful and sad as well.LG delivers every time
Lisa Gardner write good suspense, but a lot of it is pretty disturbing (though, thankfully, rarely graphic). While this is a Quincy/Rainie book, we've run out of ways for them to be the victims (for now) so they're back to strictly detective roles. Well, and Kimberly is pregnant, but that's primarily relevant because people offer her vanilla pudding a lot. :-)
So, the actual story? Basically, it's a case study of a deeply deeply messed up man. He kills prostitutes. He is a pedophile. He makes porn (including kiddy porn). He is obsessed with spiders. He also "collects" people. He is a BAD. GUY.
As usual, the story is told from multiple perspectives. As usual, Gardner is one of the few authors who does that well enough that it doesn't make me want to rip my hair out.
This time, the different perspectives aren't all operating on the same timeline - which can be a bit confusing at times until you figure out exactly who is who. (It seems normal at first then you hit a set of scenes that simply can't have all happened in the same time frame.)
There are a few interesting side characters that serve as much to develop the setting as to advance plot (though at least one is essential to the plot as well). I particularly liked Rita.
Typical of Gardner's novels, there are twists you don't see coming that make sense in retrospect. She doesn't tend to foreshadow a lot, but I actually appreciate that. I find it a bit boring to figure out the big plot twist halfway in then spend 200 pages waiting to be right.
Creepy thriller that keeps you on your toes.
FBI agent Kimberly Quincy gets a tip about a serial killer in the Atlanta Area targeting hookers...creepy, psychological thriller
An interesting story with very interesting villains. Good summer reading--about 6 hours.
keep you up page turner. Wish I'd read this before "The Neighbor"..they kind of connect.
I have recently discovered this author and have read about 12 of her books this summer. This is the last in the FBI Profiler series and I was very, very disappointed. Too much graphic detail on children being sexually assaulted and a bit far fetched and predictable in places. I swear that this was ghost written by someone else as it is not the same caliber of writing that I have read in the past. I was very disappointed in this book.
This was my first Lisa Gardner book, and I must say I was thoroughly impressed!!!!!! Could not put this book down. Though with her descriptiveness I got pictures in my head that I didn't necessarily like, it definitely made the book come alive.
I really enjoy Lisa Gardner... But (I know!), I often find an author I like and read everything by them. This is one author that you might want to read one, then read something else, and then come back to her. Many of her books are about child abductions, child abuse, and the like and it became too much for me.
Amazing story. Yes, it is awful what happened to the children in this book but that fact is, it is possible for any family to experience this tragedy. As a parent of small children, I was left feeling both hatred and sorrow for the "BurgerMan". This is an ugly story but extremely well written.
