A desperate manhunt ensues for a killer who preys upon his victims’ minds — just before he claims their lives — in this blockbuster novel from number one best-selling author Lisa Gardner.
What do you do when a killer targets the people you love the most? When he knows how to make them vulnerable? When he knows the same about you?
These are the questions that haunt FBI Special Agent Pierce Quincy. The police say his daughter’s death was an accident. Quincy will risk everything to learn the truth — and there’s only one person willing to help. Ex-cop Rainie Connor had once been paired professionally — and personally — with the brilliant FBI profiler. He helped her through the darkest days of her life.
Now it’s time for Rainie to return the favor. But this killer is like none these two hard-boiled pros have ever encountered. This twisted psychopath has an insatiable hunger for revenge...and for fear. As the clock ticks down to one unspeakably intimate act of vengeance, the only way Rainie can unmask this killer is to step directly in his murderous path. She will become a murder waiting to happen. She will be...the next accident.

Lisa Gardner does it again. I couldn't flip the pages fast enough.
Pierce Quincy is a profiler for the FBI. His daughter, Mandy, was killed in a drunk driving accident but Pierce suspects there was foul play involved.
Pierce met Rainie Connor, an ex-cop, on a case he worked in Oregon. Rainie is a PI now and Pierce wants to hire her to look into Mandy’s death.
As Rainie investigates, a killer is targeting Pierce. Will they find out who wants Pierce to suffer before anyone else ends up dead?
The two lead characters from The Third Victim are brought back and we see how much and how little their relationship has developed. Pierce Quincy is still a special agent for the FBI and Rainie Conner is getting her life back together and opening up her own private investigating office. Quincy is confronted with a family tragedy when his oldest daughter who had seemly conquered a drinking problem is involved in a terrible accident that leaves her brain dead. When Quincy's ex-wife, Bethie agrees to take their daughter Amanda off life support you would think they would be able to get on with their lives. But for some reason Quincy can't believe the wreck was an accident. He goes to Rainie and hires her to investigate and perhaps open the door to continue their relationship.
As Rainie begins to dig into the circumstances surrounding Amanda's wreck, she begins to unravel little details that don't make sense. Then Quincy begins to receive hundred of terrorizing calls from men that he has either put away in prison or from those who just plain hate the FBI. Someone has given out his personal phone number and address. In fact, someone is methodically assuming his identity and destroying his creditability. The killer is cunning and brilliant. He finds out everything about Quincy's life and those who are important to him. Then he selects his next victim. He stalks his victims learning every detail about their lives. He becomes whatever it is they desire. Unfortunately, what they desire often leads to death with the blame being laid at Quincy's feet.
This is one nerve-racking book. The story line just flows, the suspense just keeps on building, and the characters are dynamic with well round emotions. If you love suspense, don't mind being scared, then this book should be right up your alley. I have to say, I love suspense and can usually figure out who the bad guys are by the middle of the book. Not this time. Ms. Gardner has written a fascinating tale of chilling suspense that had me guessing the entire time.

Unfortunately, this isn't Gardner's best. After a rocky start to this series with ' The Perfect Husband ' I was dubious as to whether or not to continue, however I was blown away by the second ' The Third Victim ' and it left me really looking forward to reading this one. However she seems to have gone back to her old ways; There's just too much schmultzy unimportant romances and just not enough character progression for my taste. It starts of well and gets off to a flying pace but unfortunately begins to tumble down hill, I feel the main problem was that there were just too many characters and ideas that were not portrayed well enough or described in-depth enough that left the waters of the plot well and truly muddied. I can only hope that Gardner is back on track with the next book in the series The Killing Hour .
As ever with Gardner, her psychopaths will draw you in and her novels are page-turners. Never afraid to have the killer close to home, whether in law enforcement or murdering family members, Gardner plumbs the depths of humanity and, yet, we keep reading.
Do I have a favourite novel? Probably The Next Accident because it merges Quincy’s family and profiling job right on his own door step. Say Goodbye is a very strong novel in terms of showing how children, abused physically, verbally and emotionally by their abductor, become dehumanised by their treatment. And The Next Accident shows how a community – and individual families – are torn apart by that all-too familiar phenomenon, the school shooting. Suspicion doesn’t have to be rooted in fact to do its job, it just needs to be persistent.
Overall, I’d have preferred more novels featuring Quincy and Rainie, with occasional input from Kimberley, as there was definitely more room for character development there. Despite the traumas in Kimberley’s back story, she never became more than one-dimensional for me. Preferred the oldies!
Some of it was, perhaps, a little contrived and I did guess whodunnit, but a good enough yarn with interesting enough characters for this not to matter a great deal. Three and a half stars.
Great book, amazing series! Highly recommend!!
