Book Review- Right Behind You By Lisa Gardner
Lisa Gardner's next thriller following her runaway New York Times bestseller Find Her takes her wildly popular brand of suspense to new heights.
Is he a hero?
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.
I have heard amazing things about Lisa Gardner books so when I got a chance to read Right Behind You early I was thrilled and I dived into the story as soon as I could and I loved it .
In this story we mainly follow Quincy , Raine and Sharlah and OMG did I loved these characters. Sharlah's brother Telly is on the run because he is allegedly responsible for some shootings that left many people dead, so now there is massive man hunt for him as the evidence against him piles up, so we spend a lot of the story trying to figure out why is he doing this and who is he going after next . I loved that in this story we had some flashback sequences, it helped shed some light on so many things in this story .The minute I said to myself okay it has to this or this is reason why x and y has happen,I would turn the page its almost like it Lisa Gardner was whispering to me and saying 'Think again " lol this book did an excellent job at keeping me on my toes and took some twist and turns that I did not see coming and I loved that in my thriller .I thoroughly enjoyed this book the characters are all so intriguing , the setting was perfect and the plot kept my eyes glued to the page.
Right Behind You was a fantastic thriller . I could not put this book down is was so addicting . I cannot wait to get my hands on another Lisa Gardner book . If you love all these thing your in your books you should definitely pick it up when it comes out January 31,2017.
